Beaches at Florida Keys still under watch

NEW YORK--The water at five Florida Keys beaches remains under a health advisory because of excessive bacteria, and an information notice has been posted on a sixth at Fort Zachary Taylor, where there were conflicting test results.

Keys tourism officials stressed that except for these, other beaches in the Keys are open for swimming and that offshore diving operations are normal everywhere.
