60 stung by jellyfish on Florida beach

Part of a UNESCO World Heritage area, the saltwater lake has long been a source of wonder for tourists, who have delighted in snorkeling among the millions of golden jellyfish which can fill the water as thick as corn chowder. But some tourists in recent weeks have struggled to find even a single jellyfish, prompting at least one tour operator to suspend its trips.(Kevin Davidson via AP) MANDATORY CREDIT, NO SALES

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (AP) — Dozens of beachgoers have been stung by jellyfish along a central Florida beach.

Volusia County beach safety officers said they treated around 60 people with a vinegar mixture on Saturday.

Hazardous rip current and lightning storms have made for dangerous beach conditions in the area.

Officials told the Orlando Sentinel they also rescued 27 people out of the water, including a man from Ohio.

Certain parts of the beach have been closed off and on this week, according to the Sentinel.
