Authorities say a Georgia man is dead after getting caught in rough surf on the Alabama coast.

Orange Beach marine police say 36-year-old Tywan Barnes of Atlanta got caught in a rip current Wednesday afternoon.

His body was found near the Perdido Beach Resort, where he first swam out.

Barnes was originally from Mobile.

The National Weather Service says there's a high risk of strong rip currents that can quickly overcome swimmers.

Lifeguards are warning people to stay out of the water until the currents ease.
