DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- High tides are forcing Volusia County beach officials to close off part of the beach on a daily basis.
Beach Patrol spokeswoman Tammy Marris says they have had to close beaches to driving because of higher than normal waves and tides.
Marris tells the Daytona Beach News-Journal she expects the higher tides to remain for at least another week.
Beaches in Flagler County have also been affected by seasonal high-tide conditions and even rip currents.
