Multiple Shark Sightings Cause Beach Closings on Cape Cod

Shark sightings caused mutliple Cape Cod beaches to close Tuesday. 

In the morning, Ballston Beach in Truro was closed to swimming for an hour after a shark was spotted in the area, according to the Truro Recreation Department.

Then at about 11:15 a.m. two sharks were spotted about a mile away from Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, according to the Sharktivity app. Swimmers were urged to use caution and stay in the shallow water.

Later on, a shark was spotted just 30 yards off Coast Guard Beach in Eastham by multiple lifeguards, according to Sharktivity. The beach closed for the day at 4 p.m.
