MADISON, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health said it found no toxins in water from Lake Francis after a blue green algae bloom was seen on Wednesday. Residents should still use caution and avoid algae blooms when they see them, FDOH said.

If future tests show blue green algae toxins are present, FDOH will notify WCTV.

The City of Madison said on Facebook Thursday an algal bloom was reported on the lake to the Department of Environmental Protection and a test was started to see if the water was toxic.

The City of Madison said it will post caution signs warning residents about the potential toxins and informing them about Blue Green Algae.
