US: South Florida ocean temps reach hot-tub levels

US: Deadly ocean temperatures threaten marine life & ecosystems, impact humans. Florida Keys’ waters hit hot tub levels – dangerous climate change effects intensify globally. NOAA data shows alarming rise in water temps, affecting fishing & livelihoods. Experts warn of supercharged storms & stressed coral reefs.

Ocean temperatures in and around the Florida Keys have surged to levels reminiscent of a cozy hot-tub experience, prompting grave concerns from experts regarding the potential deadly impact on marine life and ocean ecosystems.

This occurrence comes amid recent warnings from global weather monitors about the dangerous consequences of warming waters, leading to extreme weather events and ecosystem disruptions.

Notably, a water temperature buoy located inside the Everglades National Park, specifically in the waters of Manatee Bay, recorded an alarming high of 38.44ºC late on a Monday afternoon, as revealed by U.S. government data. Other nearby buoys also registered temperatures exceeding 38°C and even reaching the upper 90s (32ºC).photocomposition: a turtle swimming in the ocean

These readings stand in stark contrast to the normal water temperatures expected for this time of year in the region, which should typically fall between 23ºC and 31ºC, according to data published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) through the National Data Buoy Center.

Such findings add to the ongoing warnings concerning the warming waters of Florida in the southeastern United States, as prolonged heat continues to scorch other parts of the country.
