LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County health officials are warning beachgoers to be wary of water near storm drains, creeks and rivers.

The Department of Public Health said in a statement that though the storm has come and gone, an advisory is in effect until Wednesday because the recent rainfall may have brought bacteria, debris, trash and other public health hazards into the ocean.

Officials say most beach water should be fine, but surfers, swimmers and anyone else going in ocean water should be careful in areas near storm drains, creeks and rivers.
