“I think it’s a little bit better now, I feel safe walking my dogs but still there’s an odor in the air and I know that it’s not completely gone yet,” Keith Nunnink, a Matlacha resident, said. “As recently as yesterday I had brain fog still, it kind of comes and goes.”

Lee County officials said they are continuing to monitor the algae situation in Matlacha.
