Manatees flock to FPL for safe winter haven during cold snap

RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - This plump pod of manatees have been flocking to the warm waters near the FPL power plant in Riviera Beach this week.

The endangered sea mammals are especially sensitive to the cold weather, and for nearly 50 years, the plant has provided a safe winter haven for the manatees.

There is no public viewing area, but you can watch the gentle sea cows here.
