  • Try not to panic There's a great white shark advisory in effect in Long Beach and OC

'You are paddle-boarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks, ' deputy Brian Stockbridge announced over the helicopter loudspeaker. Paddleboarders and swimmers were told to "exit the water in a calm manner".

The sighting occurred while shark advisories were in place in the region.

Officials in Long Beach have warned residents that as many as 20 young sharks a day hunt off beaches in the area, often just 50 feet from shore.

One male paddle-boarder was seen scaring off a juvenile great white that was swimming just feet next to him.

"We've had quite a sharky situation down here in South Orange County and up in Long Beach", says Register Beach Reporter Laylan Connelly. "They are mostly eating fish", said Andy Nosal, marine biologist.

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

"I don't think we should be beach people anymore".

Authorities posted advisories up and down the beaches of Southern California following several shark sightings this week.

Southern California has a bit of a shark problem these days.

Stockbridge said announcements have been given via intercom to surfers and beachgoers a few times in the past year, mostly in the Sunset Beach area in Huntington.

"We'd spot them periodically and toward the end of the summer, they disappeared", he said.

"We haven't seen signs of those young sharks actually being a potential threat to humans".
