NBC10 video: Jellyfish invasion at the Jersey shore

    Swimmers on the Jersey Shore are being threatened by an invasion of jellyfish that are stinging a with a vengeance this summer.

    For the past few years, swimmers in the northern sections of Barnegat Bay have dealt with large numbers of the creatures which have translucent bodies and tentacles that can be more than 6 feet long, but this summer more and more are being seen in southern portions.

    People who have lived in the area for decades say they’ve never seen so many of the creatures.
