    Fine place to swim. I have been there many times. The hurricane has nothing to do with it. There are many places you would not go after a hurricane. Swimming at Cliffs is fun.

      I understand. But when all the flooding happen it spilled over from the river to the swim area. Just saying you never know what running down the river. It was comply washed out like to the point it was above the steps to go down to the swim area.

    People swim there?
    There’s no way I would allow my family to.. If you saw it after hurricane Matthew- You wouldn’t allow yours to either.
