SOUTH PADRE ISLAND - Beach accesses five and six have been closed since Sunday after Cameron County officials deemed the conditions on the beach to dangerous.

Judge Carlos Cascos and Precinct 1 commissioners Sofia Benavides ordered the closures and they say high tides and strong rip currents are making those areas unsafe. Boca Chica beach has also been closed and county law enforcement is patrolling the beaches to keep them clear and it is uncertain when the beaches will be reopened.
