More Shark Sightings In Southern California: Warning Issued In La Jolla

It's been a strange summer all around, what with record-low temperatures, spring-like conditions along the coast and several shark sightings. The latest great white shark sighting happened off La Jolla Shores in San Diego over the weekend.

A lifeguard spotted one of the beasts with high-powered binoculars off the popular beach about 5 p.m. Sunday, according to the Associated Press. A local kayaker reportedly made a similar discovery Sunday morning.

People were warned to stay out of the water Monday from La Jolla Cove to the south to Scripps Pier to the north.

Last week a Dana Point surfer captured extraordinary footage of a great white swimming off the Orange County coast. The Monterey Bay Aquarium later identified the shark as one it had tagged and was tracking as part of its research into great whites' West Coast migration.

That research has found that the sharks indeed like to hang out off the Southern California coast.
