High winds, surf close Pinellas beaches

Posted: Updated:

Pinellas County has closed three beaches over safety concerns.

Ft. DeSoto Park, Sand Key Park and Fred Howard Park have been closed because of unsafe surf conditions and flooding, the county said in a media release Tuesday.

The county says the upland portion of Fred Howard Park will remain open.

Clearwater Beach is open, but no one is allowed to swim.

The county says the parks will reopen Wednesday if the weather permits.
