Dangerous beach conditions along Florida's coast

Volusia County Beach Safety flew the red flag on Wednesday while rescuing 27 people out of the ocean due to rough surf.

"We transported one person by EVAC for precautionary reasons after he was brought out of the water, he is expected to be ok. We had a second transport for a minor injury, not water related," said Capt. Tamra Malphurs with Volusia County Beach Safety.  "We had large crowds in all core areas of the beach, we expect this to continue throughout the week and into the holiday weekend."
