Purple waves start washing ashore along Oregon’s coast and baffle officials.
And that could be a sign of purple sulfur bacteria… A really bad sign of the ever increasing extinction event storming ahead!
This strange purple phenomenon has been observed already for over a month and no one seems to know what it is.
Witnesses describe large segments of the tideline – 100 feet in length on a mile or so – colored by a vivid and weird shade of purple.
Purple waters have already been reported in Neskowin as well as at Fort Stevens State Park near Astoria, in Lincoln City, Newportand in Seaside. In Neskowin, the perplexing purple water were accompanied by “a funky smell“.
According to Beach Connection, “After sending word to a host of scientists, naturalists, volunteers from CoastWatch and even state officials from the Oregon Health Authority (which sends out beach bacteria alerts), no one could come up with a positive answer. All were quite mystified and admitted they hadn’t seen anything like it. There is no evidence it’s harmful in anyway, just a big enigma.“
Now water samples have to be taken to firmly determine what turns the water purple. But what about a harmful bloom of purple sulfur bacteria?
Guesses from specialists include phytoplankton which when it consumes certain nutrients can turn purple or other similar colors. Probably not Fukushima.
Well I just hope it is not purple sulfur bacteria, as suggested by Jumping Jack Flash Hypothesis because : “that is a very bad sign indeed that this extinction event is storming ahead with ever-increasing strength. Purple sulfur bacteria consume hydrogen sulfide and they only exist in waters where there is already hydrogen sulfide present. So as the waters of the Earth become more contaminated with hydrogen sulfide, produced by sulfate reducing bacteria, there will be more outbreaks of purple sulfur bacteria. That appears to be happening now.”
For now, the Oregon coast has a purple mystery on its hands.
[…] Moreover a mudslide put three homes at risk, pushed a barn off its foundation terrifying the baffled homeowners. Like this purple water along the coast? […]
