City Advises Public to Use Caution While at Gulf Beaches Due to Unfavorable Conditions

Hurricane Delta Surge Poses Threat to Public Safety

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – As Hurricane Delta continues moving North through the western Gulf of Mexico today, the City wants to advise the public of the potential impact to Gulf beaches in Corpus Christi.

Locally, beach driving conditions are expected to be poor and unfavorable as water reaches the Gulf beach dunes near the time of high tide. Some beach access roads will be impassable. A high risk of rip currents will continue today as a result of large swells and long wave periods. 

The public is highly encouraged to use precaution while driving on the beach access roads and is advised to avoid driving on the beach where there may be water in the driving lanes or at the base of the dunes. Be aware that extremely high tides can deposit debris onto beach that could potentially damage vehicle tires.   

Red Flag Rip Current Warning conditions and high-water levels will remain present up through Saturday.
