With sunny weather predicted for the three-day weekend, there will undoubtedly be tens of thousands of people flocking to Huntington Beach, California.

But there are reports of at least 12 denizens of the deep cruising around the area.

Sightings of Great White Sharks has been the topic of discussion in the news and among locals. More than a dozen 6-10 foot sharks were spotted 15-20 meters off shore from a police airplane flying above the area yesterday, an increase from six only a few weeks ago.
