Sections Of Beach Closed

Two parts of the beach in Biloxi have been shut down after tests found high levels of bacteria in the water.

The beach is closed from Edgewater Drive east to Briarfield Drive and from St. Peter east to St. Francis.

The state department of environmental quality is advising people to stay away from those sections of the beach and the waster in those areas until further tests show that they are safe.
