WOODBURY - Two Nassau beaches were still closed to bathers Sunday afternoon because of what might be in the water.

The Nassau Health Department says there are elevated bacteria levels at Laurel Hollow and Biltmore beaches.

Swimming was off-limits Saturday at 19 Nassau beaches because of storm water runoff from Friday's heavy rain, but 17 of those have since reopened.
