    Officials Temporarily Close 18 LI Beaches

    Officials in Nassau County have temporarily closed close to 20 beaches to swimming over bacteria concerns following heavy rain.

     The beaches closed Saturday are mostly on the north shore of Long Island. They include:
    Centre Island Sound 
    Creek Club 
    Lattingtown Beach 
    Laurel Hollow Beach 
    Morgan Sound 
    North Hempstead Beach Park 
    Piping Rock Beach Club 
    Prybil Beach 
    Ransom Beach 
    Roosevelt Beach 
    Sea Cliff Village Beach 
    Soundside Beach 
    Stehli Beach 
    Tappen Beach 
    Officials also closed four beaches on the south shore, including Hewlett Point Beach, Island Park Beach, Merrick Estates Vicis Association and Philip Healey Beach.
    Storm water runoff after heavy rains can wash things into the water, but health authorities are especially concerned about bacteria from sewage.
