Section Of Beach In Gulfport Closed

Harrison County Sand Beach Authority shut down a section of beach in Gulfport.

Waters tests in the area of Pratt Avenue showed contamination so the beach is closed from Thorton Avenue to 19th Avenue. Signs went up in that area warning swimmers not to go into the water.

Pollution Control regularly tests the waters up and down the beach. The area won't re open until two future tests show no contamination.
