A day after a shark was spotted in the waters off Huntington Beach for a second day in a row, authorities have reopened two miles of beach to Orange County swimmers, officials said.

Lifeguards “scoured” the waters in search of the 12-foot predator and its comrades, but only found smaller ones, Huntington Beach officials said.

As a result, the beach was reopened as of 11 a.m. Tuesday, the city said in a statement.

Shark advisory signs were posted to warn swimmers of the recent sightings.
