Suffolk County beaches bathing advisory

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The Suffolk County Health Department has issued a bathing advisory at 66 beaches in the county because of water runoff from heavy rainfall. Storm water runoff can cause bacterial spikes at beaches.

A few rounds of tidal flushing usually cleans out these beaches, so the advisory will be lifted at Thursday, July 17, at 4 p.m. unless water samples show that the bacteria levels are still high.

Copiague Harbor Beach is closed.
