Dangerous bacteria levels prompt beach warnings
MONTEREY COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- A health advisory is posted for the beaches of Monterey County due to potentially dangerous levels of bacteria and other nasty stuff.
Monterey County health officials discourage swimming at any county beaches where storm drains empty into the ocean. They say recent rains and runoff are sending potentially dangerous levels of bacteria, viruses and chemicals into the ocean.
Swimmers could become ill as a result.
