LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. — Due to large swells at the William O. Lockhart Municipal Pier in Lake Worth Beach, the pier will be closed through Wednesday, September 23.

South Florida is under a High Surf Advisory and Coastal Flood Advisory through Tuesday.

Surf conditions are rough thanks in part to Hurricane Teddy out in the Atlantic.
