Dozens of beachgoers were stung Saturday by jellyfish along a central Florida beach. 

Volusia County beach safety officers said they treated around 60 people with a vinegar mixture.

Hazardous rip current and lightning storms have made for dangerous beach conditions in the area.

Officials told the Orlando Sentinel they also rescued 27 people out of the water.
