CORONAVIRUS: Yes, These People Are On The Beach In The Midst Of A Thunderstorm Warning

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Never underestimate the need to be on the beach. From the COVID-19 deniers we reported on earlier to the photo above, there’s a lot of head scratching going on in South Palm Beach County.

Beaches opened in Palm Beach County earlier today (Monday, May 18th), but “Beach Parks” in Boca Raton did not. That means there are no lifeguards, bathrooms or parking lots available on beaches in the City of Boca Raton.

That apparently didn’t stop several who just “needed” to go to the beach from staying on the beach as threatening clouds moved in and the National Weather Service issued a “severe thunderstorm warning.”

We remind you: those “demanding” that the beaches reopen often said that they have the “common sense” to keep themselves safe.

Perhaps the City of Boca Raton didn’t reopen its “beach parks” because it wasn’t quite sure common sense would truly prevail. Look no further than the photo above.
