The effects of Hurricane Ian are still very much evident on the beaches. Debris piles and trash are still evident near the entrances to Naples beaches. There’s caution signs up warning about the dangers evident in the sand and water. There was caution tape blocking the way in. Well. Someone ripped down the caution tape. New paths have been formed and people are going to the beach. Ok, maybe. If you can deal with the other things and you keep your flip flops on when you walk, maybe. But getting in the water? People are actually getting in the water. Did you not hear about this? She got a bacterial infection just from wading into the water scooping up shells.
One Naples woman said she received a bacterial infection from Tigertail Beach on Marco Island last week. Jessica Kirshenbaum and her friend decided to test the waters and finally go shelling again after Hurricane Ian. ⬇ https://t.co/c4zzgjryRp— NBC2 (@NBC2) November 1, 2022
Despite that, people are still going to Naples Beaches. And going into the water. One of our local Vloggers, Southern Life, went down to the beach this weekend to check out the scene. He seems to be just as dumbfounded as we are. I love his comments, he’s so ‘direct’ (human eating bacteria).
Why would you go in the water right now? And it’s not just swimming, I was on a Reddit board where someone was asking if it was ok to eat the fish they caught. Hell no. Just look at this.
