The rip current warning is still in effect. The National Weather Service issued a beach hazards statement for Lake Michigan predicting dangerous swimming conditions with high winds up to 25 miles per hour, large waves as high as seven-feet and strong currents along the lakefront. One woman was rushed to the hospital after she was pulled from the water at Glencoe Beach on Labor Day. Witnesses report seeing a woman in distress and two people pulling her out of the lake.
