CHRISTINA.KELSO@STAUGUSTINE.COM A beachgoer wades into rough surf at St. Augustine Beach on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Beach and surf conditions have been dangerous in recent days, forcing the National Weather Service to issue a coastal flood warning, high surf advisory, and high rip current risk advisory for Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia beaches that was set to last through Thursday evening. All St. Johns County beaches are also closed to vehicular traffic through Thursday due to unusually high surf and tides, and periodic coastal flooding during the morning and evening hours.
