OCEAN CITY, N.J. (CBS) — Looking at the Jersey Shore on Friday, it’s hard to believe we were in the middle of a tropical storm a little more than 12 hours ago. Even though Elsa has left our area, we aren’t done with the storm just yet.

There’s still a high risk for dangerous rip currents down the shore.

Video from Ocean City shows lifeguards had to rush into the water this afternoon to rescue a teenager being pulled out by the strong waves.

The best advice is to just stay out of the surf until the waves get a little calmer.

And if you do go in the ocean, always stay near a lifeguard.
