School of Sharks Spotted Off Port Everglades

    A school of at least 50 sharks was seen congregating around Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale Tuesday morning.

    While shark schools are not uncommon in South Florida, sightings so close to shore often prompt beach closures.

    Researchers at the Nova Southeastern University Guy Harvey Research Institute, however, say migrating sharks are not a threat to humans.

    Another giant school of sharks was spotted off the Florida coast last April.
