Hurricane Dorian's Unexpected Side Effect: Bricks Of Cocaine


Hurricane Dorian has devastated the Bahamas and is currently beginning its stay in North and South Carolina. There is however another effect of the storm: Bricks of cocaine are washing up on Florida's beaches. No, seriously. A report from NBC has the details on this unexpected consequence.

A bag containing fifteen bricks of cocaine weighing a kilo each washed up on Cocoa Beach. And that wasn't the only one! It also happened at Paradise Beach and Park in Melbourne, Florida.

If you need an idea of how much that is in dollars, then check this out: "One kilogram of cocaine, on average, is estimated to be worth $28,000 in the United States, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime."

That's an expensive problem, eh?
