Scuba divers don't wear "oxygen tanks". They breath air like the rest of us.
As for the red tides, they have been happening less often in recent years if you look at the historical record. That trend is probably back to normal for some reason (upwelling most likely) and magnified by the nutrients (lawn fertilizer, dog waste, etc) that runs off during winter rains.
I don't think this is an unusual situation at all. Redondo has historically been hit hard by these blooms because it sits ashore at the end of a deep underwater canyon. Upwellings tend to hit there first and hit there in full force.
