Rip Currents More Dangerous than Sharks in Galveston

Yes, the danger of drowning in Galveston due to our local rip currents is much more dangerous than a shark attack, according to researchers at Texas A&M University in Galveston (TAMUG). Galveston Daily News reporter John Wayne Ferguson’s article was front page news in the Galveston Daily News (Texas A&M study: Rip currents are more dangerous than sharks, Thursday, March 10, 2016, pages A1, A4 ).
Rip tides are often encountered when near Galveston’s jetties, so please be careful when enjoying the Gulf!
