  1. Yes, absolutely! Gulf waters have huge bacteria bloom clouds of resistant flesh eater and the early heat this year made it worse. After the “spill” and several deaths, how is the gulf even considered to wade in? A fellow died the same way, was never in above his knees.

    • if you look in the (hard to see) SEARCH BOX on the left sidebar for “flesh-eating bacteria” you will see lots of older reports.
