Florida Governor Declares State of Emergency Over Red Tide

Florida’s southern Gulf Coast is filling up with dead marine life, but there may be a solution.

Countless dead fish along with dolphins, sea turtles and even a whale shark have washed ashore as a result of Red Tide.
Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency earlier this week for seven counties dealing with the effects of the harmful algae bloom.
While Red Tide typically occurs every year between the fall and winter, this year’s tide has continued for 10 months.
However, the CBS station in Miami reports that researchers are testing a system near Fort Myers which can process 300 gallons of water a minute. And while they’re not sure how it will work in a natural environment, it could be a possible solution for the Sunshine State.
