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

A shark swims in the water off Capo Beach in Dana Point Calif. on Thursday. Advisories were posted for beaches up and down Southern California after shark sightings this week

Sky 2 spotted several sharks swimming off Long Beach's coast Thursday morning.

Even if adult white sharks swim near the shore - which they do from time to time - they're not particularly interested in humans. Their fins rose menacingly from the water as they glided back and forth.

The announcement warned swimmers and surfers to calmly exit the water Wednesday afternoon.

"Please be advised this area is heavily populated at the moment with large great white sharks, some of which are in the surf line". That scenario only happens if a shark is acting aggressive or is longer than 8 feet.

The sharks are believed to be juvenile Great Whites, between five and six feet long.

Lifeguards say there have been no reports of swimmers or surfers being bumped or charged.

"The report we got from the sheriff's was very similar to the reports we've had before with the juveniles in the area at Beach Road", he said.

Last month, 33-year-old Leeanne Ericson lost part of her leg to a shark attack off San Onofre State Beach. Quick-thinking beachgoers likely saved her life by using a surf leash as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding from a massive thigh wound.

Sightings are not uncommon along the coast, but attacks are rare. Also, as temperatures climb more people are drawn to the ocean. The beach is nearby the area now under the shark advisory. Employees are heard discussing the sharks and the locations of people in the water. But California State Parks developed a shark advisory system, which involves the placement of signs along the water's edge.

The OCSD sighting is only one of the many reported sightings of great whites in California.
