From the Town of Palm Beach (33480): Dangerous Surf Conditions Expected from Hurricane Joaquin

As of 2:00 pm, October 1, 2015, Hurricane Joaquin has developed into a major category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. This storm is not forecasted to impact Palm Beach and Florida remains well outside the 5-day forecast cone. However, dangerous surf conditions are expected this weekend so we strongly encourage those visiting the beaches to use extreme caution and pay close attention to warning flags and lifeguards.

If the forecast for this storm changes the Town will issue additional alerts. Otherwise, this will be the only alert for this storm.
