Abstract (Document Summary)

YARMOUTH, N.S. (Staff-CP-AP) - Two 17-year-old girls were swept out to sea when a huge wave, whipped up by Hurricane Bob, crashed over them as they sat early today on rocks below Cape Forchu lighthouse near here.

Authorities in South Carolina say a swimmer drowned Saturday night off Myrtle Beach in heavy surf that was attributed to [Constable Bob Forbes]. Another man drowned while swimming Sunday off Holden Beach, N.C., as the hurricane approached, officials said.

As Bob neared the Maritimes, it was downgraded to a tropical storm. But it still lashed parts of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick with winds of up to 109 km/h and dumped close to 85 mm of rain.
