    The manatee mob was attracted to the Three Sisters Springs during the high tide and cold temperatures.

    By 1:30 p.m., more than 300 manatees filled the central pool at the park, which serves as a refuge for them, WTSP reported.

    Officials will monitor the pools to see whether the waterway can be opened again soon, according to the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
