    Swarms of jellyfish sting people on Atlantic beaches

    Hundreds of people trying to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend on Atlantic beaches in central Florida encountered an unwelcome surprise: swarms of purplish, stinging jellyfish.
    More than 800 people at beaches from Cocoa Beach to Cape Canaveral have been stung, Brevard County Ocean Rescue officials said.
    Assistant Chief Eisen Witcher said the reports began coming in Friday, but as the Memorial Day weekend got into full swing, the numbers increased dramatically.
    "Saturday, we got about 200 reports. Sunday, we got another 250," he said.
    All weekend long, countless numbers of jellyfish washed up on shores, standing out against the sand due to their distinctive hue.
