51 Degrees Farenheit

Here are some monster waves from Sandy Feet's SPI-Cam. This was Monday or Tuesday when the water was still in the 60's. By today the water temperature plunged to 51 degrees. The rapid drop cause about 20 sea turtle strandings, as reported in this link.

UPDATE: Nancy reports 8 more turtles rescued today by Scarlett. Very few dead fish were seen on the bayside of the Island, mostly 6-8 inch mullets. The air is warming but is still below 50 degrees, meaning that bay waters could still drop.
