SWFL RED TIDE BLOOM-TRX-SS-VO IN PLASMA


RIGHT NOW NBC-2 IS following A RED TIDE BLOOM ABOUT THE SIZE OF HAWAII. AND IT IS DRIFTING TOWARD SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

RIGHT NOW, IT'S 50 MILES OFFSHORE. AND JUST NORTH OF TAMPA.

RESEARCHERS WENT INTO THE GULF JUST YESTERDAY TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

THEY'RE TRYING TO GET A BETTER IDEA OF EXACTLY WHERE IT'S GOING- AND WHEN IT WILL GET THERE.

NBC-2 GOT A LOOK AT SATELLITE IMAGES OF THE DANGEROUS ALGAE BLOOM THAT'S 80 MILES LONG.

IF RED TIDE MOVES ON SHORE, IT CAN MAKE IT HARDER FOR PEOPLE TO BREATH.

SO FAR IN THE GULF, THIS BLOOM HAS KILLED THOUSANDS OF FISH.

RESEARCHERS WITH MOTE MARINE LAB IN SARASOTA ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT IF IT'S GOING TO BE HARMFUL TO HUMANS. Return to index of stories...


SWFL RED TIDE BLOOM-SOTVO, PLASMA


Lovao "We want to get in front of the bloom so we can see what's happening beneath the surface on this side of the bloom so that might help tell us where it's going."

Eric Milbrandt, Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation "It overgrows everything and causes what we're experiencing now."

AND RIGHT NOW, ANOTHER A RARE ALGAE BLOOM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE RED TIDE.

IT'S ALREADY LINGERING ON THE SHORES OF SANIBEL, FORT MYERS BEACH AND PINE ISLAND.

AND EVEN THOUGH RESEARCHERS CAN'T PINPOINT EXACTLY WHAT'S CAUSING BOTH BLOOMS, WHAT THEY DO IN THEIR LABS COULD GET THEM CLOSER TO AN ANSWER.

RESEARCHERS TELL NBC-2 A STORM COULD REALLY HELP OUT.

THE RAIN COULD BREAK UP THE RED TIDE AND CAUSE THE BLOOM TO SHRINK. Return to index of stories...

DRUG DRIVING-PLASMA-CG-PLASMA


THIS MORNING, AS STATES CONTINUE TO RELAX MARIJUANA LAWS,

CONGRESS HAS TURNED ITS ATTENTION TO THE TRICKY QUESTION OF HOW TO HANDLE "DRUG DRIVING."

AT A HEARING TITLED "PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES: OPERATING WHILE STONED," MEMBERS DEBATED HOW TO BEST REGULATE DRIVERS WHO HIT THE ROAD AFTER GETTING "HIGH."

UNLIKE ALCOHOL, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO QUICKLY TEST DRIVERS TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE TOO IMPAIRED TO DRIVE.

THE HEARING ENDED WITH NO REAL SOLUTION TO TEST DRIVERS FOR MARIJUANA.

POT ADVOCATES SAY MOST STATES ALREADY HAVE LAWS THAT DIRECTLY ADDRESS DRIVING WHILE IMPAIRED UNDER ANY SUBSTANCE, INCLUDING MARIJUANA.

AND THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED IN MARIJUANA POLICY AT ALL. Return to index of stories...

Francine Donnorummo,

Asst. State Attorney

:32:50 Is there anything else we can do.

I dont know! I think making people aware over and over again and

making the community almost accountable. If you see a kid in a car,YOU take action.

IN 2007- IT BECAME A CRIME IN FLORIDA TO LEAVE A CHILD, SIX AND YOUNGER IN A CAR FOR 15 MINUTES OR LONGER.

EXPERTS SUGGEST LEAVING SOMETHING LIKE A PURSE OR PHONE IN THE BACKSEAT AS A REMINDER. Return to index of stories...
