Hundreds of swarming sharks close beaches in southeast Florida
There's something lurking in the water at some South Florida beaches. Hundreds of swarming sharks, some as close as 20 feet offshore, have closed down some beaches in Broward and Palm Beach counties. The sharks have been repeatedly spotted near shore over the past two weeks in those areas. One expert with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the big fish are migrating north this time of year. He says they'll travel as far as North Carolina, where the females will have "pups."
Although these sharks aren't considered "man-eaters," they have been known to bite swimmers.
