MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - For a third straight day life guards and paramedics have had their hands full along South Florida's beaches.

Lifeguards and Fire rescue officals have been hard at work saving people from dangerous rip currents caused by strong eastern winds.

Two women at Hallandale Beach have been saved from rip currents. In Dade and Broward County nearly 100 drownings have been prevented.

Swimmers have been warned to swim near the shore.
