The Lee County branch of the Florida Department of Health:
"a caution level of red tide was found near Lynn Hall Park (Fort Myers Beach). A cautionary notice indicates low levels (>10,000-100,000 Karenia brevis cells per liter) of red tide detected in sampling. This is in response to water samples taken on January 25, 2023."
The Department also re-issued a swim advisory for all beaches and waterways in Lee County on January 23 due to the amount of debris that remains in the water as a result of Hurricane Ian that hit our area on September 28, 2022.
