MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Health officials say six beaches have been closed to bathing on Long Island due to heavy rainfall.

The beaches are located in Nassau County.

They were closed Monday as a precautionary measure. Health officials say storm water runoff can negatively impact bacterial levels.

The beaches are: Laurel Hollow Beach, Morgan Beach, North Hempstead Beach Park, Sea Cliff Village Beach, Tappen Beach and Theodore Roosevelt Beach.

Updates on beach closings and openings are available at 516-227-9700.
