Seawater At Tip of Florida Hits Hot Tub Level

From an AP story by Seth Borenstein headlined “Water at the tip of Florida hits hot tub level, may have set world record for warmest seawater”:

The water temperature on the tip of Florida hit hot tub levels, exceeding 100 degrees two days in a row. And meteorologists say that could potentially be the hottest seawater ever measured, although there are some issues with the reading.

Just 26 miles away, scientists saw effects from prolonged hot water surrounding Florida — devastating coral bleaching and even some death in what had been one of the Florida Keys’ most resilient reefs. Climate change has been setting temperature records across the globe this month.
