Shark advisory in effect at all San Clemente beaches after aggressive shark behavior

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (FOX 5/KUSI) — Enter at your own risk is the message officials are telling beachgoers in San Clemente on Tuesday after a shark displayed aggressive behavior over the weekend, according to the City of San Clemente.

The water at all City of San Clemente beaches was abruptly closed to the public Monday after confirmed aggressive shark behavior in the area of the T-Street Beach, the City reported.

The beaches still remain open to the public during the water closure.

The Orange County Register is reporting a surfer had a close encounter with an aggressive shark when it bumped them off their board Sunday night, which prompted lifeguards to close the beaches in the area for most of Memorial Day.

On Tuesday, the ocean reopened to swimmers and surfers in the City of San Clemente, but a shark advisory is in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday, which means the public can enter the water but at their own risk.

The City noted the advisory will only be lifted if there are no more shark sightings.
