Swimming along Alabama Point and just east of it has been banned by Orange Beach officials because of shark sightings.
This morning's beach report recording said double red flags are flying in these areas warning swimmers to stay out of the water. Shark sightings began Friday.
According to the Orange Beach surf condition report recording this morning, the rest of the beaches are flying yellow flags which means conditions are at medium hazard and it is advisable to stay out of the water if you are not a good swimmer.
FOX6 will have a live phoner with Melvin Shepard, the Beach Safety Director. He will have an update on this situation on FOX6 News at 9
