NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Wind currents are pushing large numbers of jellyfish into beaches along the Volusia County coastline.
More than 200 people were treated for jellyfish stings over the weekend.
Officials are asking beachgoers to use caution and go to the nearest lifeguard tower if stung.
Jellyfish stings can cause burning, itching and leave red marks where the tentacles make contact with skin. They can usually be treated with home remedies but in severe cases require emergency medical attention.
The jellyfish are expected to linger along Volusia County beaches until the winds shift direction.
