Officials warn of rip currents, Man-O-War on Volusia beaches

The Volusia County Ocean Rescue Beach Safety flew red and purple flags Saturday because of rip currents and Man-O-War stings that were reported along the coast.
Officials said they experienced hazardous rip current conditions and rescued three people out of the water.
32 people suffered from Man-O-War stings.  One person had to be taken to the hospital as a result of a sting, officials said.
Beach officials said everyone else was treated on the beach with vinegar.
Beachgoers are encouraged to swim near lifeguard towers, which currently has more staffing then usual because of the warm weather and bigger crowds.
