    3 years ago I was in Gulf Shores for an invasion of stinging nettles and let me tell you it was terrible! My family has already said if we get warning that they're bad we would cancel versus dealing with them.

    Sooner or later they WILL be coming to our coast.
    It's an annual occurrence, some years there are even two outbreaks of stinging jellies!
    The article doesn't name the species, but "sea nettles" is the most likely to cause issues here...

    If you are waist deep or so they are hard to see, usually you're stung before you ever see them. Even little kids in the edge of the water get nailed sometimes.
    Thank goodness its usually a short term even when it happens.
