DULUTH - Authorities are warning swimmers to watch out for deadly rip currents in Lake Superior this summer.
A red flag warning was issued this past weekend for Park Point beaches.
The wind and wave conditions were creating rip currents.
The warning had since expired Monday, but the safety reminder is still there.
"If you happen to be in the water where a rip current is, it can pull you out at five mph -- 1,000 feet into the lake," said Jarry Keepers, assistant chief for the Duluth Fire Department.
Authorities remind you there are no lifeguards on duty at Park Point, and if you get caught in a rip current, don't fight it, swim sideways and move away from the current.
