Thanks to all who responded to my questions regarding thermograph data 
in the Florida Keys. It seems apparent that we will soon be seeing an 
abundance of data from hobos throughout the Keys. Ken Nedimyer also 
provided me with an abundance of keen observations. In short it appears 
most of the bleaching damage is occurring off the lower keys, especially 
in the Key West region where reefs are more subject to waters emanating 
in the Shallows on the Gulf of Mexico side of the Keys. Thanks to all 
who responded. It appears we may see a repeat of the El Nino related 
events of 1983-84 as the current El Nino intensifies.  Gene
