–State officials informed Miami-Dade County leaders late Wednesday that the bacteria that causes red tide has been discovered in the waters off Haulover Beach.
-As a result, Haulover and all other beaches north of the Haulover inlet have been closed until further notice.
-Miami may get more bad news today: samples taken from other beaches like South Beach and Crandon Park will be released later today.
-Red tide can kill fish and other marine life and can be dangerous to humans.
We are taking this proactive step to ensure our residents and visitors are not affected as we collect samples in other areas for state testing. We will continue to seek guidance from the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and take precautionary measures as needed. https://t.co/ZasZwQbPqP
