VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - The Virginia Department of Health Beach Monitoring issued a beach warning on Tuesday for all beaches in Newport News, Hampton, and Eastern Shore counties.

Officials say beach monitoring will not take place this week due to Tropical Strom Isaias and will resume next week.

Red flags are also flying at every beach in the City of Virginia Beach.

Red flags flying means that no swimming is permitted.

Virginia Beach officials say red flags will be at all beaches Tuesday due to rough surf as Isaias passes through the local area.
