Large white shark looks straight into the camera. Captured in the clear blue waters of South Australia.

Yikes! I know Shark Week is over, but this story got my attention quickly. Every year, around shark week and during the busy summer months, reports come out about sharks. Whether it’s what to do if you see a shark, reports of shark attacks, and where the sharks most likely are. When the summer comes and the beaches get a bit busier, patrol spikes more and everyone is on alert for sharks. I am not a big beach water fan, I will go to enjoy the scenery and layout but actually getting into the water, it’s a no for me.

CNN is reporting some of the most shark-filled waters across the world. Just last year, over 50 unprovoked shark attacks were reported, according to CNN. So, what does this all mean? Using data on reported shark attacks, we’re looking at what areas had the most shark attacks over some years. Unfortunately, both North and South Carolina made the list with quite a bit of shark attacks over the last few years. Below will only show what US states made the list, but to check out the full report click here.
