U.S. beach closings and safety advisories rose 75% in 1998 to a record 7,236, largely reflecting contamination caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon, an environmental group said Thursday. California accounted for 3,273 of the closings and advisories, due to heavy El Nino rains in Southern California, according to the annual report on the water quality of lakes and oceans by the independent Natural Resources Defense Council. California had 1,141 beach closings and advisories in 1997.
