Believe it or not, rip currents have already claimed 45 lives this year across the United States. Some of those deaths have occurred in the Great Lakes, including right here in Lake Michigan. For perspective, lightning and tornadoes have only killed 19 people combined thus far in 2018. When there is any sort of elevated risk of rip currents or dangerous waters, it is very important to heed all warnings and stay out of the water.
