PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — Around-the-clock cleanup efforts continue to fight a devastating resurgence of red tide in Tampa Bay.

“People are going to suffer, the businesses are going to suffer,” said Vince Stegura, owner of Skinny Water Culture, a Florida-based clothing store.

Stegura says ongoing fish kills are dealing a major blow to local businesses.

“If the bay is destroyed, they’re destroyed,” said Stegura. “Their livelihood is destroyed.”
