As Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded, rampaged through Florida, floodwaters from Harvey, the wettest tropical cyclone to hit the United States mainland, receded, sending trillions of gallons of freshwater into the Gulf of Mexico. That influx is altering the salinity of the Gulf, potentially triggering an algal bloom that could harm marine life, including valuable commercial species.
