Surf TMs up but county beaches are closed until further notice

County beaches are closed until further notice after an order from county officials.

Cameron County Judge Carlos Cascos made the decision earlier today.

Isla Blanca park, Andy Bowie Park, county beach access 5 and 6 and Boca Chica beach are closed until further notice.

The beach accesses were ordered shut down at 4 pm, and county officials will decide when they TMre deemed safe to reopen.

I am also asking the public to pay attention to our warnings and stay out of harm TMs way, Cascos said in a statement.

The temporary closure is due to the potential risk of rip currents and high tides.
