Floyd's Lingering Effects

Record #:
An increased load of nutrients and decreased levels of salt and oxygen in the estuaries were short-term effects of Hurricane Floyd's floods. Estuaries also began to recover more quickly than has been expected. The flood did kill a number of slower moving aquatic animals and affect the food supply of fish. What still remains unknown is the flood's lasting effect.
