Red Flag Days
Strong winds from the south are whipping up waves in the Gulf of Mexico. Most of the Panhandle area is under wind advisories, high surf and coastal flood warnings.
Lifeguards patrol the beach area to keep people out of the water, which wouldn't appear to be a problem looking at the surf. Unfortunately, Pensacola Beach had its first drowning since September 2005 last weekend - on a red flag day such as this.
