It may be warm enough to hit the beach, but a few swimming spots in Orange County are closed Thursday due to a sewage spill.

Swimmers are being told to stay out of the water in parts of Huntington Harbour.

The Orange County Health Agency reports Humboldt and Davenport beaches are closed after 800 gallons of sewage spilled from a storm drain. The spill occurred on New Year's Day on Heil Avenue and Algonquin Street.

The waters near Wayfarer Lane to Warner Avenue and the main channel parallel to Coral Cay Lane are also closed due to contamination.
