The public is advised to be careful of swimming, surfing and playing in ocean waters around discharging storm drains, creeks, and rivers in the affected areas.

Avalon Beach at Catalina Island, which is 50 feet east of the pier, remains under an advisory.

Recorded information on beach conditions is available 24 hours a day on the county's beach closure hotline, 800-525-5662.
