In the midst of a heat wave you'd think that at the very least it would be safe to cool off at some of local beaches and ponds however that warm weather makes it a perfect breeding ground for dangerous bacteria causing several Rhode Island Beaches to close for the next couple days.

According to NBC 10 WJAR, "Four Rhode Island beaches are off limits to swimming because of high bacteria. The Rhode Island Department of Health said Wednesday it recommends no swimming at Grinnell's Beach and Fogland Beach in Tiverton, Bonnet Shores Beach in Narragansett, and Kent County YMCA Lower Pond in Warwick."

The Department Of Public Health will continue to monitor the water quality for harmful bacteria. Learn more about the story here.
