NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A shark was spotted at Tobay Beach in the Town of Oyster Bay on Thursday afternoon, prompting officials to temporarily restrict swimming, a spokeswoman for the town said.

The Tobay Beach sighting, which happened around 3 p.m. on Thursday, was one of several shark sightings that have taken place on Long Island this past week.

The Town of Hempstead temporarily restricted swimming Wednesday afternoon after a shark was spotted off its coastline, officials said.
