Health advisories lifted for 2 Ore. beaches


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Oregon Health Authority says public health advisories for contact with ocean water at two Oregon beaches have been lifted.

The agency said Friday that the latest tests show fecal bacteria contamination has subsided and the water no longer poses a higher than normal risk.

The advisory was issued Thursday for D River Beach in Lincoln County and Heceta Beach in Lane County.
