Hello, Listers,

I dove Saturday, Oct. 1, on the North shore of St.
Croix.  The stony corals have nearly all become
stressed.  They are white or 'dayglow' yellow  or
'dayglow' orange.  At least 90% of nearly all stony
corals are affected.  The various species called
"Cactus" corals are showing stress.

There is one small area where the corals are not
bleached, and that is in less than a meter of water
right along the shoreline where I enter the water.
