HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - More than a dozen young great white sharks were spotted in waters off Sunset Beach in Huntington Beach.

The Los Angeles Times reports that a Huntington Beach Police Department helicopter spotted 13 sharks Tuesday night feeding in the water about 50 feet from the shore. The sharks were between 6- to 10-feet long. There were no swimmers or surfers in the water.

No swim advisories or warnings have been posted at Sunset Beach.

The lifeguard unit has received other reports of shark sightings in recent weeks. At least six young sharks were seen near Seal Beach and Huntington Beach on May 11. Officials issued warnings in April after two sharks were seen near paddleboarders at Surfside Beach.
