River In China Mysteriously Turns Bloody Red Overnight

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.

Are being blood and being polluted with chemicals the same thing?

Whatever chemicals turned the river red. Or are you saying it’s red because an angel has poured out his vial?

I’m not saying anything other than what the article says.

“Upon inspection, investigators with the Wenzhou Environmental Protection Bureau were unable to find any specific causes for the bloody incident.”

“Locals said the river appeared perfectly fine around 5 a.m. local time, but less than one hour later, people suddenly noticed the blood-red metamorphosis.”

It’s almost as if the author added “bloody” to get hits...

Nah, it must be a supernatural occurrence without an explanation.

This was two years ago:

Yangtze River Runs Mysteriously Red

A stretch of China’s longest river has abruptly turned the color of tomato juice, and officials say they don’t know why.

Residents of the southwestern city of Chongqing first noticed that the Yangtze River, called the “golden waterway,” had a spreading stain on its reputation yesterday (Sept. 6).

Though the bright-red water was concentrated around Chongqing, Southwest China’s largest industrial center, it was also reported at several other points along the river, according to ABC News.

I’m sure it’s caused by global warming.

Reporters: “Chinese Officials, why would the rivers suddenly run red one day?”

Chinese Officials: “I’m sure we don’t know. Perhaps we could investigate. We’ll get back to you.”

It’s official! It’s a mystery! What could it be? Mankind may never know!!! (cue Theremin)

Hey, wait, didn’t this happen a couple of years ago?

Some other river, but I’m sure this isn’t the first time in recent history.

I posted an article about other times it has happened. It isn’t that uncommon but it is still very weird.

I didn't get where I am today without knowing that "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin" was one of the funniest shows ever made.

“Red tide. put your tin foil hats away”

Fish would all be dead from the toxins in the water and people that got near it and breathed in the toxins would also get sick.

That has to be a dye of some kind.

A food coloring dye factory is upriver?

There couldn’t possibly be a connection.
