Florida, Mexico and Caribbean brace for incoming 8,000-km-wide seaweed blanket

An over 8,000 kilometre-wide brown glob of seaweed, known as the Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt, is on the move and could potentially wreak havoc on beaches in Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean this summer. "It's been like this more and more and sometimes you can't even get into the water because it's all in the border," Miami resident Kano Mirth said.
