BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston and Cambridge public health officials are warning people to stay out of the water, for now. Torrential rain on Saturday caused local sewer systems to overflow, triggering alerts from local officials.

In Boston, the overflows happened between around midnight and 3:30 a.m. on Sunday in three separate areas. The affected spots were the Fort Point Channel at Albany Street, the area near the North Washington Street Bridge in the North End, and in the Inner Harbor near the Skyline Monument and the Logan Airport Ferry.

Officials warned people to stay out of the water and not fish or boat in those areas. The alerts remain in effect for 48 hours and will end early Tuesday.

Cambridge also had its own sewer outflows, both at Alewife Brook Reservation. Cambridge officials said to avoid the waters of Alewife Brook and the Mystic River until Tuesday at about 3:00 a.m.
