Florida woman, 85, killed by large alligator in St. Lucie County, FWC says

An 85-year-old woman was attacked and killed by a large alligator on Monday in St. Lucie County, Florida, Florida wildlife officials said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call about an alligator attack at a home on Picante Circle in St. Lucie County.

Officials with FWC said an 85-year-old woman – identified the next day as Gloria Serge – was killed in the attack, and that trappers had captured the alligator believed to be involved.

Florida beaches could see record-breaking seaweed bloom

Researchers are watching a record amount of smelly seaweed called sargassum build up in the Atlantic. It will most likely end up on Florida beaches.

Last July, heaps of brown seaweed inundated beaches in Brevard County. "It stinks," said Brian Barnes, a researcher at USF's Optical Oceanography Laboratory. "As it starts to decompose, it releases hydrogen sulfite." 

Throughout the year, seaweed makes its way across the ocean. Researchers have noticed huge amounts of it gathering in the Caribbean this year. "We’re really looking at the biggest, probably the biggest event that we’ve ever seen," Barnes said.
