My family has a trip planned to Fort Myers Beach in early September. We are hoping & praying the beach conditions improve before we go....seeing people on the beach on the beach cams is somewhat encouraging. Reading on this forum that the smell has gotten better and hearing that people have been able to enjoy the beach makes me feel a little better. Not sure if we will get in the water in September but we want to be able to walk the beach and enjoy the beach and not get sick. Has anyone that's been there in the past few days experienced any respiratory issues? After reading and seeing the pictures, we are concerned and worried that the water and beach will stay unsafe/unhealthy. Can anyone who has been on Fort Myers Beach in the past few days tell us what the current conditions are?
I vacation in Ft. Myers Beach a couple times a year, and was there in April and there were some dead fish and red tide issues during that time as well, however this seems a lot worse. It is very sad on what is going on with all the dead sea life, dolphins, manatees, etc and praying something will be done for the contributions to this problem that are not just "natural occurring". I know beach conditions won't be as beautiful and awesome as we are used to, but my love for Fort Myers Beach is still calling me....however, if we can't enjoy the beach and be on the beach, not sure what else I would do. Just need to know if things are getting better and people can be on the beach without getting sick.
