Gulf Coast Jellyfish Increase


Jellyfish are common along the Gulf Coast, but people in Orange Beach say they are seeing more than usual this year.

Urgent Care Centers in the area reported an increase in jellyfish stings over the Labor Day weekend. However, locals say people visiting the area should not be concerned.

Jellyfish stings are not typically deadly, but they can cause allergic reactions in some people. Officials are cautioning beach-goers to be on the lookout.
