Portuguese Men o’ War disperse

PD*6598457 (Agencies) The 500 Portuguese Men o’War (Physalia Physalis) sighted last Tuesday in the Straits of Gibraltar have dispersed without reaching the coasts of Ceuta or Andalucía, according to the Sighting Network of Ceuta. The closest they came is 700 metres from the coastline, say the same sources. There were no incidents involving swimmers. The Portuguese Man o’ War is highly poisonous and travels principally with the wind, rather than with the currents. (See JimenaPulse warning here.)
