Mqt. beaches closed Tuesday

Marquette’s public beaches are closed today.

The Marquette Fire Department says high winds, heavy surf and colder-than-average temperatures have led to the closure.

Lifeguards will not be on duty at McCarty’s Cove or at South Beach.

The beaches will re-open when the weather conditions improve.

The fire department says it will release more information Wednesday morning about the beaches either re-opening or remaining closed.

Beach status updates can also be found on the city of Marquette’s website.
