Sewage spill prompts partial Ocean Beach closure


Barricades block off access to the beach along the Great Highway between Fulton and Balboa streets. Pedestrians can still walk along the promenade or go near the water's edge.

The spill was likely caused by heavy rains and the high tide which caused the sewage to overflow into the streets.

The water is gone now, but the smell still remains.

No word yet on when the area will be declared safe for visitors.
