Body of 4th drowning victim found off Gulf coast

GULF SHORES, Ala. —

Authorities say they've recovered the body of a Kentucky man, one of four men who have drowned in the Gulf of Mexico off Alabama's coast since Sunday.
 
Baldwin County sheriff's officials say they found 34-year-old Joshua Kimbrough of Bowling Green, Ky., 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.
