Nassau County will use a helicopter to survey the water and lifeguards will do a check before allowing swimming at Long Island’s beaches after two days of shark sightings.
A Hempstead lifeguard spotted a shark at Atlantic Beach around 3 p.m. Tuesday, while a lifeguard at Jones Beach also spotted a shark close to the shore.
The entire strip was then closed for swimming, from Jones beach to Atlantic Beach, for the rest of the day.
There were three shark sightings on Monday afternoon, with the first being a Town of Hempstead lifeguard who reported seeing a significant sized shark near a lifeguard on a surfboard.
They weren’t sure of the exact size, but the shark was just eight to 10 feet away from the shore.
