LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- We're getting an updated look at where red tide is currently worst in Southwest Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials put out this map. It shows red tide is present in high levels in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

There are also a few spots with a medium concentration of red tide. However, largest blooms are found just about everywhere in Southwest Florida and up the coast.
