Debby storm surge impacts sea turtle nests

By

Tropical Storm Debby has brought a high risk of rip tides throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast, localized beach erosion, and may have a devastating impact on sea turtle nests.  Experts say the nesting season was one of the best ever in Southwest Florida before Debby, which may have drowned or washed away 50% of the eggs from nests in Collier County.  (Video courtesy WBBH-TV)
