Toxic Algae?

Any beach closings due to toxic algae? I read some Florida beaches had closings but am not clear on the areas.

Beaches are open here - the toxic algae is more likely in the central and southern part of the state.

Follow Mote Marine Lab daily postings: visitbeaches.org

There are currently no beach closings or warnings in the Panhandle, south to St. Pete Beach. It is very unusual for the red algae blooms to occur in the north Florida Gulf beaches.

Barbara. No need to post your email. Responses are made right here on the forum by hitting the reply button.

There are two other threads called red tide. Both are being updated continuously. It has been reported in Miramar Beach and Destin is just next door.
