Morning News Update
Good afternoon. I’m James Brierton.
An advisory at 60 county beaches about the possibility of dangerous bacteria in the water is now over. The county had issued the alert after Monday’s record breaking rain. Health officials were concerned the storm runoff would raise the levels of dangerous bacteria levels in the ocean water. The lifting of the advisory comes around the same time the Natural Resources Defense Council issues a report downgrading the quality of water at Long Island beaches. The blames Hurricane Irene and city pollution for an overall increase in bacteria levels.
in your forecast: We’ll top off near 90 today with sunny skies but the heat really hits us tomorrow when we’re in the mid 90s. A chance of thunderstorm later in the day tomorrow. We’re down to 70 tonight.
