The Atlantic Ocean looked crystal clear Wednesday, but the beach was lined with red "Danger" flags and swimming was banned along a 25-mile stretch because a broken pipe spewed more than 25 million gallons of raw sewage into Biscayne Bay. On a sunny 90-degree day, tourists sat on the shore, watching the flat ocean, while many locals headed farther north to avoid contaminated waters. Lifeguards patrolled the beach to try to keep people from entering the water.

A ruptured sewage pipe that spilled millions of gallons of raw waste into Miami's Biscayne Bay closed some of the city's beaches this weekend to swimming and fishing in an echo of a similar spill last summer. A rupture last June of a line at Miami Beach Marina resulted in a spillage that closed a strip of beaches in the area for more than a week. Beaches on Key Biscayne, along the causeway and on Virginia Key were closed after Thursday's incident near the Port of Miami.
