New Jersey officials have been working for months to clear Sandy debris out of the ocean and in back bays up and down the Jersey Shore, but boaters and swimmers are still being advised to stay vigilant for possible problems.
After a recent accident involving a boater losing his life, New Jersey State Police are warning boaters wanting to get a jump on the season that the warm temperatures can still mean dangerously cold water.
New Jersey State Police, hoping to prevent early season boating deaths, issue an advisory to mariners as the weather continues to warm. The gist of the advisory? Wear a life jacket when venturing out on a boat.
