Some of you may have noticed we have not posted an article in a few weeks. We wanted to let you know we did not forget about you all and we are ok. 6 months ago, we posted an article How do you unwind after a hard day? (Real conspiracy theorist play gamez) and that is where we have been. Our favorite game released a patch and the next thing we knew we have not posted an article in weeks. Some of you have expressed to us that you come to us to find out what is going on in the United States so here is what we thought you might want to know about. Please note most of this did not make headlines.
Black Water in Mississippi?
In Mendenhall MS the water that is coming out of faucets is black back in June. There is no boil water notice for the residents there, in fact they have been told the water is safe to drink. The Poplar Springs Water District claims that the water is fine and the only reason that has turned black is because there is too much iron in it. Residents have stated that the water leaves stains and have tried using everything (even bleach) but the discolored water will not go away. This lasted roughly a week and we are happy to report that the water is finally back to normal though we couldn’t help but think about Flint Michigan when we read this. Are they playing with our water supply?
More marine life dying off in Florida
Fish, sea turtles, eels, goliath groupers and even manatees washed ashore dead on Boca Grande beach in Florida at the beginning of July. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation went on record say that “Red Tide” is likely the cause. According to the National Ocean Service
“A Red Tide, formally known as a harmful algal bloom (HAB), occurs when “colonies of algae — simple plants that live in the sea and freshwater — grow out of control while producing toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals, and birds.”
They went on record also saying
“This bloom, like many HABs, is caused by microscopic algae that produce toxins that kill fish and make shellfish dangerous to eat. The toxins may also make surrounding air difficult to breathe. As the name suggests, the bloom of algae often turns the water red,” according to the service.”
More marine life dies and we get told that it is red tide? Let’s recall back to when various bodies of water all over the world were turning red and they blamed it on red tide… that was the first time we ever heard about red tide.
Yellowstone National Park
With the volcano eruption in Hawaii still causing issues we thought that what is going on in Yellowstone is worth mentioning. On July 6th,2018 the Steamboat Geyser erupted for the eleventh time in 2018. This time it lasted 32 minutes. US Geological Survey Department said the geyser has decided to follow a semi-regular pattern of erupting every 6-8 days over the past two months; however, it had been 20 days 20 hours 42 minutes since the last eruption on June 15. Here is a list of the eruptions:
Another water ‘issue’ but this time in Tennessee?
This time it happened in Gatlinburg TN. E. coli was found in the water at a zipline attraction and nearly 550 visitors reported illness. This happened from mid-June to early July. Climb Works Zip Line Canopy Tour did shut down the attraction to sanitize everything and added more filtration to water wells after July 4th when the health department did an investigation.
We are beginning to notice that more and more issues with water are being reported… just like wildlife and marine life dying off… What does it all mean? That is what we are asking ourselves.
Exotic Ticks in the US?
An invasive species of “exotic” tick native to east Asia has been discovered in North Carolina called the Longhorned tick. They are aggressive biters and are capable of spreading disease. The females reproduce without a male so a single female can create a colony anywhere in the state. Longhorned ticks are believed to have been introduced into the country via New Jersey and have recently been found in Arkansas, Virginia, West Virginia and now North Carolina… looks like they are spreading.
