Toxic green algae invades Florida beaches

Tourists are dismayed, and governor calls for state of emergency.

July 6, 2016

"this summer, many tourists are being greeted by thick layers of green rancid sludge on the water. These are blooms of blue-green algae, technically cyanobacteria, that have affected the water for miles along the Atlantic Coast near Palm Beach and parts of the Gulf Coast near Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. The infestation is so bad that Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for Martin, St. Lucie, Lee and Palm Beach counties"

"Coming in direct contact with toxic algae through boating, swimming or water skiing may cause rashes, itchy eyes or sore throat. Ingesting contaminated water can cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. Animals can become extremely sick and may even die after ingesting the toxins in the algae."
