Sarri's 'Spanish' Chelsea get off to flawless start
Despite dominating possession, Sarri's side looked uneasy early on and managed only two shots in the whole of the first half. The last time the sides met, Huddersfield earned an improbable draw at Stamford Bridge to secure Premier League survival.

But it's not happening just in Florida.

The "Red Tide" is now hitting Florida's coast and is spreading, causing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to warn coastal states of a rise in toxic algae. NOAA also said the current situation started nine months ago, making it the longest-lasting Gulf of Mexico bloom in over a decade.

In some cases, the algae can be harmful to people causing breathing issues, eye irritation or asthma.
