“And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.” Rev. 16:3
In 2012 there was a large number of bodies of water turning blood red, and interest in the phenomenon was high.
February 2012: Beirut River runs red. (a factory had illegally dumped red dye.)
August 2012: A lake in France turned red. (“Scientists say the blood red lakes in southern France are actually a natural phenomenon. Camargue, France is a river delta where the Rhône meets the sea. The picturesque area is home to numerous salt flats, and it is this concentration of salt that will occasionally stain red the region’s normally blue water.”)
September 2012: Yangze River in China runs red (“officials have no idea why, or officials say it may have been caused by recent floods stirring up silt upstream. The Environmental Protection Bureau is also looking into potential industrial pollution or sewage breaches.”)
The other day a river in China turned red and interest is again high. I can only guess this is because Revelation says that rivers shall run with blood.
The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. Revelation 16:4
The End Time
The water in a river in Xinmeizhou village in eastern China’s Zhejiang province turned red overnight, baffling locals, July 25, 2014.
A waterway in eastern China has mysteriously turned a blood red color.
Residents in Zhejiang province said the river looked normal at 5 a.m. Beijing time on Thursday morning. Within an hour, the entire river turned crimson. Residents also said a strange smell wafted through the air.
“The really weird thing is that we have been able to catch fish because the water is normally so clear,” one local villager commented on China’s microblogging site Weibo.
Inspectors from the Wenzhou Environmental Protection Bureau said they have not found the cause of the incident, although water samples seem to indicate the suspicious color was a result of illegal dumping in the river.
“We suspect that somebody dumped artificial coloring in the water because he thought the typhoon yesterday would cause heavy rain, and nobody would notice [the color],” Jianfeng Xiao, Chief of the bureau told China News.
“It turned out there wasn’t heavy rainfall yesterday, so the evidence is left behind,” Xiao said.
Xiao said there is a paper manufacturer, a food coloring company and clothing-maker a long the river. The bureau is still investigating the incident.Source: ABC News – Chinese River Mysteriously Turns Bloody Red Overnight _______________________________________________________________
The coastal plains of Florida are facing serious threat from a large Red Tide bloom which has not been seen for almost a decade.
The Red Tide is posing devastating infestation on the marine life of Florida. The incoming tide has already claimed lives of thousands of fish in the Gulf of Mexico and it is now reported to be closing in on the coast. The Red tide bloom is expected to wash ashore striking the mainland in around two weeks.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the bloom is spread about 80 miles in length and approx 50 miles in width in Gulf of Mexico but presently the tide is from 40 to 90 miles offshore.
“It could have large impacts if it were to move inshore. It has been killing a lot of marine species, especially fish, as it waits offshore,” Brandon Basino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), said. In order to monitor the growth of algae bloom, the researchers at the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium in Sarasota have deployed two underwater robots in the sea. The robots will provide important information about the slow-moving bloom.
The Red Tide or Algal bloom is a phenomenon that has been occurring in the sea water for centuries. It is result of the disturbance created by few species of a type of algae called dinoflagellates. Their massive population growth result in discoloring of water, most probably in colors like red or brown. The algae bloom becomes uncontrollable and production of toxic chemicals begins. The water turns toxic and result into death of marine creatures including fish, octopus and others.
Florida has so far received several reports of death of thousands of sea creatures including fish, octopus and bull sharks.
A similar red tide bloom had caused deaths of 276 endangered Florida manatees in 2013.
The algae bloom also poses health risk to the humans, Experts say people living near the coasts or in the coastal areas may develop symptoms like coughing, wheezing and other respiratory problem. The chemical responsible for these health problems is odorless and tasteless.
