COLLIER COUNTY, Fla - Results from a new red tide test are in and good news for beach goers. The samples show the algae bloom is not present along Naples' beaches.
Still, signs, warning red tide is still present, greeted sunbathers near Park Shore Beach. Snowbirds say they saw dead giant grouper wash up on shore last week. The Collier County Natural Resources Department removed them and says there have not been any reports of red tide symptoms since March 1.
Meanwhile, experts warn the county still has high levels of red tide lurking off shore and with an onshore wind expected in the next few days, the toxic algae could cause people to cough and sneeze.
The next red tide sample will be taken on Thursday.
