Beach Is Closed Again

For the third time this summer, a section of the Harrison County beach has been shut down because of contamination. Officials say the area between Anniston and Laurel Avenues in Gulfport is now closed, and signs will be put up this morning. This includes the busy Cowan Road area.

Bacteria levels in the water are too high, but no reason for the contamination has been found. State and city officials will look over the area later this morning.

The beach will remain closed until two consecutive samples come back within safe levels.
