Large amounts of sargassum continue to invade beaches in northern Yucatan, and on the morning of Thursday November 14th, the beaches of San Benito, municipality of Telchac Puerto, are literally covered with the algae, which gives a brown tone to the waters in a wide area off the shore.
According to residents of San Benito, the sargassum spot is about 40 meters wide and several kilometers long.
As we previously published, a big problem of algae invasion has been recorded for the last three weeks in the Progreso Malecón, where workers from the City Council and the Federal Terrestrial Maritime Zone (Zofemat) are given the task of cleaning beaches in the tourist area.
The problem has also been reported in Chicxulub, which locals say that the situation has intensified due to bad weather.
