Beach Open In Biloxi But Still Closed In Gulfport

It's now safe to swim at the beach in Biloxi. Three sections of the beach were closed in Biloxi earlier this week because tests revealed high levels of bacteria.

Tests done Saturday and Sunday morning both showed the water is now safe. Officials still don't know what caused the contamination.

Residents should continue to avoid a section of beach in Gulfport, however. The Sand Beach Department put up signs on Saturday after tests showed high levels of bacteria near Cowan Road.
