Red Tide in Sanibel

We are headed to Sanibel on March 28th. I have been hearing about the red ride, and wondering if it has reached Sanibel yet and if we should change our plans. My teenage daughter has a chronic illness and we chose to get away from the cold so she could rest. Respiratory complications would be a disaster.

There's no dead fish or respiratory issues currently being reported -- but do keep in mind that this can change quickly with wind direction and tides...and that just because one beach is questionable, the next beach may be completely clear.
