We saw this coming about a month ago. Algae blooms first appeared south of Tampa in May. Whenevr that happens, it almost always moves to the north over the next few months. A few weeks ago, red tide was found in small concentrations close to Sarasota and Anna Maria Island. Now, the blooms have moved to Moody Point and Cockroach Island. Symptoms from red tide generally include respiratory issues, such as eye, nose and throat irritation. People with asthma or other respiratory problems should avoid the immediate beach area until the blooms ease up. If you want to avoid the red tide all together, stay away from beaches where it has been detected and try to stay in air conditioned places. Authorities say dead fish often accompnay red tide outbreaks. They also remind everyone not to eat fish or mollusks that are from affected areas. In addition, they remind you to not let animals drink from areas with red tide symptoms. Source: WFLA.com
Red Tide Found On Hillsborough Beaches
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
