Hurricane Irma stirs up sand and more over the Florida Keys
Storms can be both helpful and harmful to a reef. We all know the benefit of good circulation in your reef aquarium - but too much of a good thing can be devastating. While the strong waves and currents which break off branches may aid in some relocation of corals and their eggs, it often leads to piles of dead branches and partially buried colonies. The two photos above (NOAA/NASA) show the gulfstream on September 7th (top) and September 11th (bottom). This storm not only altered our planet above the water-line; it has drastically changed the landscape below the water-line. Only time and our friends from the keys will tell us how our nations reefs and all of it's marine life weathered this barrage of storms so far.
