LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County health officials are advising swimmers and surfers to stay out of the ocean for at least three days because of runoff from this week’s storm.

The rain advisory issued Tuesday came a day after the low-pressure system brought showers, lightning and some downpours to the region.

Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms as contaminants in the runoff enter the ocean via storm drains, creeks and rivers.

The advisory is in place through Thursday, when another round of rain is expected.
