Sharks spotted off Southern California coast prompts warning for beachgoers

Sharks Spotted Along Southern California Coast, Including 15 at San Onofre Beach; Advisories Issued in Long Beach, Orange County

Last month, a mother of three survived an attack off San Onofre State Beach.

"We haven't had any reports of anyone being bumped or charged, just observations of them either swimming or breaching", Young said.

Warmer waters bring out greater numbers of people, too, and they tend to go for longer swims, researchers say.

The video opens with a close-up shot of a great white shark swimming solo in a turquoise ocean.

Numerous sharks appear to be juvenile great whites - six to eight feet long and about a year old. A number of great whites have been spotted near the shore recently, including two Thursday morning. Younger sharks like munching on smaller fish, often hunting just outside of the surf break - although it's not unheard of for juveniles to venture into waist-deep waters. ABC reports that they came within 50 yards of the beach.

The fire department warned beach goers to enter the water at their own risk.

S&P, Nasdaq hit record highs as volatility drops

Warnings have been posted on beaches up and down south California after shark sightings this week.

In a Facebook post, the U.S. Marine base said an aggressive shark had been seen Wednesday at a popular surfing spot known as Church at San Onofre Beach. "Within six feet of the surfer, its tail flipped and it made a circling motion around him", a lifeguard told The Orange County Register.

Local photographers flying drones over the water at Capo Beach have captured several sharks in the water in recent weeks. "I never thought I'd see the day I'd have baby white sharks in my front yard".

Instead of migrating that year, the sharks remained in the area. And ocean conditions may be pushing them to new places'.

Though seeing the toddler sharks in these areas is not surprising - the sites are what Lowe calls "hotspot beaches" -more groups of the animals do seem to be popping up earlier in the season, he said. He added that if the water temperature patterns don't return, they "might start residing here"'. Quick-thinking beachgoers likely saved her life by using a surf leash as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding from a massive thigh wound.
