Mississippi Beaches Closed Due To Toxic Algae Bloom

Quite recently, all of Mississippi’s 21 beaches have been closed to swimming due to a rapidly growing bloom of blue-green toxic algae. These restrictions don’t affect vacationer’s ability to sunbathe or walk the beach, but it’s highly recommended that no human or their pets go swimming in the currently dangerous water. It’s also recommended that anyone that comes into contact with this toxic algae wash with soap as soon as possible, and to avoid eating any seafood that may have come from the affected areas.
