NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Nassau County Health Department has closed 14 beaches to swimming.
The precautionary move came after Tuesday’s heavy storm.
The department said storm water runoff can have a negative impact by elevating bacterial levels and affecting bathing water quality.
The following beaches are closed:
Centre Island Sound
Laurel Hollow Beach
