Dean Whips Up Some Tasty Waves at Gulf Coast Beaches

Florida's Gulf Coast continues to feel the aftermath of what was Hurricane Dean.

The Category 5 storm which struck Mexico earlier this week has resulted in extremely dangerous rip-tides from Apalachicola Bay to Pensacola.

Red-flags and double red-flags have been flying along Panama City Beach.

Word of four-to-seven foot surf swells has brought out surfers from across the country.

The normally tranquil Gulf waters appear more like the Pacific Ocean.

In several cases, surfers have helped save the lives of people who have gotten caught in the rip-tide.

Authorities warn people to be extremely cautious of going into the water.

Surfers say it should calm down sometime Friday.
