Another shark sighting prompts closure of popular Cape Cod beach

TRURO, MASS. (WHDH) - A confirmed shark sighting in the water off Cape Cod Tuesday morning prompted the closure of Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro.

National Seashore staffers spotted the shark just after 11:30 a.m. and posted a red flag warning, according to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s Sharktivity app. A second sighting was confirmed in the same area just before 1 p.m.

The beach was temporarily closed to swimmers for an hour. Beachgoers are being urged to exercise caution due to at least one shark lurking in the area.

Multiple sightings on Monday closed all town beaches in Plymouth. One great white shark was seen off Manomet Point.
