Red tide is back in the gulf…and it’s bad this time. They are saying to stay out and keep pets out.
Man!!! Red Tide is back and its bad again. It’s been really really bad on the east coast near Miami and West Palm and it’s moved to south Florida near Boca…and now it’s reached Sarasota county.
Fish and turtles are turning up dead because of this. People are having a hard time breathing and dogs are getting sick playing in the water.
Officials are saying those with asthma or other respiratory health problems should avoid beaches where the red tide is present, and pet owners should monitor their animals on the beach. Inhaling the toxic algae blooms can cause eye irritation and respiratory issues.
I’m glad I took my dogs to Ft. DeSoto today – I’m staying out of the water this weekend for sure!
