-This river was just like any other before this happened
-It turned blood red and locals are terrified of its transformation
-People believe that it was a work of God and the end of the world is coming.
KAMI stumbled across a very interesting story of viral4real.com about this river that turned blood red.
Is it really a sign that the end of the world is near?
If we look thoroughly on some of the Bible's scriptures, The first plague that happened was when Moses turned the Nile River of Egypt into blood.
In Exodus 7:17–18, it’s written: “With the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water of the Nile, and it will be changed into blood. The fish in the Nile will die, and the river will stink and the Egyptians will not be able to drink its water.”
Is this really a doomsday sign? We think not.
Norilisk is a big industrial city. It is very polluted because of the metal factories and plants that uses a lot of chemicals. These chemicals are ones causing the river to turn red.
Oxidized iron contained in the waste is suspected to be the culprit of the blood-looking water. “That’s a very typical color for a mine waste,” said David Chambers, mining expert and president of the Center for Science in Public Participation.
