Red Tide Worsens
Red Tide blooms are back in the danger zone. Madeira’s conditions worsened over the weekend, leading the Gulf beaches with the highest amount of algal blooms. Breathability on the beach is difficult for those with respiratory issues due to the high levels of bacteria and dead fish. Although the beach is open, caution is advised.
Prepare for a Storm Now
Hurricane Ida reminds us all that storm preparation is necessary. Supplies and sandbags are a must. Always make an emergency kit with necessities such as food, water, batteries, flashlights and hand-crank radios. Take medications, IDs and insurance information as well as pet information, food, water and toys. Evacuation plans should be made in advance, however only evacuate if need be. Evacuate if you live near the shore, or water, live low to the ground, in a mobile home or are in a danger zone for flooding. Try to evacuate closer to home to avoid being stuck on the road in a storm. Look into flood insurance to make sure your belongings and property will be covered if affected.
