RYE, N.H. — A New Hampshire beach is closed to swimming after two sharks were spotted in Rye.

Swimmers were called out the water on Monday afternoon. A park official says the beach will remain closed on Tuesday.

A lifeguard told the Portsmouth Herald that the sharks were about 6 feet long.

Park officials were trying to determine what type of sharks were spotted by the man, who ran out the water yelling near Pirates Cove.

Cape Cod’s Nauset Beach in Orleans, Mass., was closed briefly Saturday after a kayaker had an encounter with the shark about 50 yards from shore. The beach reopened Sunday, and no sharks have been spotted since then.
