Bowling Green Man Drowns in Gulf of Mexico

Authorities say they've recovered the body of 34-year-old Joshua Kimbrough, one of four men who have drowned in the Gulf off Alabama's coast since Sunday.

Baldwin County sheriff's officials says they found Kimbrough on the Fort Morgan peninsula Monday night. His body was recovered more than 24 hours after he disappeared in the surf.

Kimbrough was last seen swimming Sunday afternoon in the Gulf at the Beach Club and was found at the nearby Martinique subdivision.

Gulf Shores officials on Monday posted double red flags on all beaches in the city, meaning that extremely hazardous conditions are present and all waters are closed to the public. The city said that underlying rip currents posed a significant risk to anyone entering the Gulf.
