I found this site that lists current alerts and emergencies on a world map and this one showed up over the US as a Biological Hazard from just today.

It appears this event or whatever it is happened in Washington State.

I can't seem to find out anything else from this web site though.

Does anybody have any information on this?

Click on the event description.


Some beaches in South Kitsap have been closed because of "red tide," while warnings have been posted around Kitsap Lake because of toxic algae. Paralytic shellfish poison, or red tide, has resulted in a new closure affecting all species of shellfish from Manchester south to the county line. Already closed by the Kitsap County Health District were areas on the east side of the Kitsap Peninsula from Point Jefferson in North Kitsap to Blake Island in South Kitsap, including Port Madison Bay, Miller Bay, Agate Passage and the entire eastern shoreline of Bainbridge Island. The remaining areas on the east side of Kitsap County remain closed for butter clams only — except for Dyes Inlet, Sinclair Inlet, Rich Passage and Liberty Bay, which are not restricted by the shellfish poison, which can be life-threatening. Meanwhile, a bloom of toxic blue-green algae has triggered a health advisory for Kitsap Lake, according to Jim Zimny of the Kitsap County Health District. The algae are producing toxins that, if ingested, can cause sickness or death. In other places, the algae have been known to kill fish, pets and livestock. Health officials have posted signs at public access points around the lake warning people not to swim where the algae are concentrated and to limit access by pets and livestock. Boats and trailers should be rinsed before entering another lake.)

This is a great site. I use it often to see what is going on around the world. A little more digging around would have lead you to this:

Oh ok, sorry about that all. I thought I had read all of the information available. I will go back and poke around more. Next time I won't be so quick to panic, lol, sorry about that.

Thanks for the info!

everytime I see that map,I want to see a little yellow square with a dinosaur/big moth in it around China.

A yellow square with a cup of tea with a crack in it over Ol' Blighty.

not to make light of this biological happening,obviously I hope it's only something minor.

Very cool site, didn't know it even existed.


Will check it out from time to time, seems to cover all the bases.

I found it odd that it is based out of Budapest, Hungary though?

Would they be a centralized area for Emergency Relief information?
