Million-Gallon Sewage Spill From Tijuana Closes San Diego Beaches

San Diego County officials are warning people to stay out of the water off Imperial Beach just north of the U.S.-Mexico border after more than a million gallons of sewage spilled off Tijuana.

The county's environmental health department issued the warning Tuesday and posted signs from the border to the north end of Imperial Beach.

A county statement says a pipe broke Monday night and on Tuesday was still spilling sewage into Playas de Tijuana about ¾ of a mile south of the border.
