In Fort Myers on the West Coast they are protesting the Lake Okeechobee water releases. John Heim of Southwest Florida Clean Water Movement said:
"People here today realize that we're 100 percent tourism-based as a community and an economy, and they're up here basically voicing their opinions and fighting for their lives, quite honestly. They know without clean water, we'll lose our billion dollar tourism industry,"
Meanwhile in Stuart on the East Coast, The Martin County Board of County Commissioners has called an emergency meeting to discuss water conditions in the St. Lucie River and other local water bodies. The meeting is today.
Later: There was a packed house at the Stuart Meeting, with people standing outside the chambers. Thank you Ken and Adam for the photos.

My girlfriend in Port St. Lucie County said her daughters were signed up for Surf Camp but it was cancelled due to the ocean beaches ALSO now being covered in toxic slime, miles from the inlet where Lake Okeechobee is dumping. Her husband Adam Locke is running for St. Lucie County Property Appraiser. We need a good Property Appraiser there, what do you think is going to happen to property values?
