Please Note: This is an experimental forecast of potential respiratory irritation that may occur because of airborne toxins produced by the Gulf of Mexico red tide organism Karenia brevis. It indicates a greater or lesser likelihood of negative conditions based on predicted wind and ocean currents.


The location and time of respiratory irritation can change due to unpredicted bloom movements or unexpected changes in actual wind or ocean currents. Health officials advise that people with underlying chronic respiratory problems should avoid red tide areas and take all medications as prescribed, including having access to rescue inhalers.


This experimental forecast is currently being tested for efficacy and is not yet an official forecast. Daily availability of the product cannot be assured.
