3.08.11.Tsvet the lake in the west of the U.S. state of Texas over the past week was a blood-red.
Because of the unprecedented drought lake (OC Fisher Reservoir), located in the National Park of San Angelo, is almost completely dried up, and therefore the loss of thousands of fish. Unusual color of water, which has become like blood, forced religious fanatics once again to talk about the coming end of the world.
Preacher Paul Begley in Indiana laid out on the YouTube video announced that the metamorphosis of the lake can be evidence of the apocalypse foretold in the New Testament, the Revelation of St. John the Divine.
"The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood, and died the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and a third of the ships were destroyed", — quotes the Bible cultists in the published video .
Experts soothe supporters near the apocalypse, that actually change color due entirely rational reasons. The red color is the result of bacteria of the genus Chromatiaceae, which actively proliferate in oxygen-free water, reports Live Science. According to the experts, so we can only speak about the end of the season of fishing in this popular vacation spot, but not the end of the world.
According to official data, the drought covered 75% of the territory of Texas. Last week, there was hope for rain showers, but it did not come true — in the state were reported only two cases of loss of small precipitation. Experts fear that even if the water level in the reservoirs of the state in the coming years will recover fish populations caused catastrophic damage.
Now the depth of the lake in the National Park of San Angelo is just over a meter. Previously, it was inhabited by fish species such as catfish, sole, and the moon-fish.
