CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Officials at the Padre Island National Seashore reported Friday that they have seen a decrease in Red Tide levels on their beach.

Earlier this week, a small concentration of Red Tide was discovered in the waters off the National Seashore after some dead fish washed ashore. Officials said the latest tests show that the Red Tide concentration has decreased a significant amount.

Red Tide can cause respiratory issues for some and has a strong smell associated with it.
