Why is there so much broken coral on the beach lately?

Why is there so much broken coral on the beach lately?

Recently, many people have been asking  why there is so much broken coral on our usually smooth sandy beaches here in Maui.  The answer comes from a domino effect of ocean conditions that includes weather, water temperature, and waves. Perhaps you’ve read or heard about  coral bleaching in many parts of the world.
