Red tide spreads to Florida’s east coast, shuttering some Miami-Dade beaches

The red tide bloom that’s been in the waters off Florida’s Gulf coast for months is now choking the Atlantic Ocean waters from Miami Beach to Palm Beach, Florida.

Three generations of the Claus family have been fishing the Atlantic waters in southeastern Florida. Trey Claus, 30, has never seen anything like this; he said neither has anyone else he knows.
“This might put a halt to our season, which is not a good thing,” he said.
