A seething tangle of floating trouble is massing for a potential summer assault on Florida beaches as a vast forest of sargassum grows in record amounts in the Atlantic Ocean.

University of South Florida scientists said January was the second consecutive month that the amount of seaweed doubled, reaching 8.7 million tons, which is enough to fill about 3,000 Olympic size pools.

It also broke the previous January record set in 2018.

“This is very rare in history,” said USF oceanography professor Chuanmin Hu, about the rapid growth. "All we can do now is keep a close eye on what's going on."
