Florida Fish & Wildlife’s latest report came out Friday and shows high concentrations of red tide in five counties including Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee counties. A small portion of Northwest Florida is also affected. To track the levels of red tide, check the latest map from Florida Fish and Wildlife. 

 

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers make it two in a row with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles 27-21. Their next game is one on Monday Night Football against the Steelers on the 24th at Raymond James Stadium.

 

 

Tropical Depression Florence is weaker but there’s still plenty of rain falling. The storm will moved through the Carolinas, Virginia and into the Ohio Valley later this week. Many of the rivers are expected to crest Wednesday or Thursday with major flooding. Right now the city of Wilmington is virtually cut off from the rest of North Carolina.

If you want to make a donation to those affected by Florence, be careful. Give only to organizations you know and trust or directly to the person affected. We have a list of groups that are accepting donations. Blood donations are also need as well as volunteer hours. Some breweries have stopped beer production and are canning water to be distributed to storm victims.
