Concerns over algae blooms

Five conservation organizations petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency to set limits on algae bloom toxins. WMNF’s Chris Young reports the blooms threaten the health of Floridians and wildlife.

Several Tampa Bay area cities have raised LGBTQ Pride flags over their buildings this month. WMNF’s Sean Kinane reports that this would have been illegal if a bill that died in this year’s Florida Legislature had instead become law.

New data shows the extent of heat-related deaths in 2023, and experts say that 2024 could be even deadlier.
