HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - Health officials have issued advisories banning swimming in parts of South Florida's Atlantic Coast.
Water quality tests showed high levels of bacteria on stretches of Hollywood's beaches and a small section of Dania Beach, near a popular pier.
Health officials said Wednesday that swimmers who come into contact with the bacteria could contract a stomach flu.
The advisories were based on tests taken Monday. Further water samples taken Wednesday may return different results.
