Manatees gather in warmer Florida waters to get out of cold

Three Sisters Springs in Florida had to be closed to the public after a large group of manatees gathered in the area.

Officials estimated around 300 of the marine mammals flocked to the springs in search of the warmer water.

As the temperature drops in the early part of the year the manatees often travel to Florida's Citrus County.
