MIAMI (AP) – Rough surf is creating dangerous conditions for swimmers and complicating rescue efforts along Florida’s coastline.
A swimmer was missing Monday off Ormond Beach, where another person was unresponsive when pulled from the water by beach patrol.
Also Monday, the Coast Guard searched for a 26-year-old woman missing from a boat returning to suburban Miami from Stiltsville, a cluster of homes built on pilings in Biscayne Bay.
A search was called off for an 11-year-old boy who disappeared Saturday off Jacksonville. On Sunday, authorities used a personal watercraft to bring a woman to shore in the same part of Little Talbot Island, but a man remained missing in the water.
Beachgoers pulled two men from the water Sunday on Daytona Beach Shores. Officials said one died, and the other remained hospitalized.
