SALINAS, Calif. -

Monterey County health officials say all beaches in the county have been posted with a rain advisory in advance of Monday's anticipated storms.

Health officials advise the public not to have ocean water contact for three days after the last rain event.

Health officials recommend that people do not swim in or have contact with storm drain water. Bacteria, viruses, protozoa or chemicals may contaminate storm drain water, and contact with storm drain water may cause illness.
