I have just found that an intense bleaching event was occurring in some 
Venezuelan reefs (Morrocoy National Park) on the western coast of the 
country. This observation was made on Sep. 16 while colleagues went out to 
watch coral  spawing in the park reefs. Water temperatures of up to 32 
Celsius were registered  down to 8 m deep. Water temperatures were 28 
Celcius at 12 m deep.
