Bacteria Triggers Gulf Coast Water Warning
Several states along the Gulf Coast have issued warnings after testing in some states revealed harmful bacteria in the water that can result in disease, infection or rashes.
Officials said Alabama beaches were given the all clear after recent testing of beaches in Mobile and Baldwin counties but Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi didn't fare as well.
Al.com reports three beaches in the Florida Panhandle are under a swim advisory due to fecal indicator bacteria. Mississippi issued a water contact advisory for one beach but twelve beaches in Louisiana tested positive due to concerns of Enterococci or Boo Boo (gross) left behind by boaters and bathers.
