Bulgaria. Black Sea jellyfish attack


22.08.11.Kak reports "Monitor", entire colonies of jellyfish attack the Black Sea beaches. Dozens of tourists complain that they were stung.
This invasion is unusual for late August. Scientists from the Institute of Oceanology, Varna explain that the Black Sea jellyfish not cause paralysis or death, but dangerous for people with allergies. Very dangerous if toxic mucus gets into the eye, so it is recommended to swim in the sea in waterproof glasses.

If you are stung by a jellyfish, urgently needs to rinse salt water and remove from the surface mucus. You can then process the skin with lemon juice or vinegar. The biggest mistake — this skin treatment with fresh water, because it causes swelling, which leads to more negative consequences.
