This is pretty scary that they meantion that unseen matter in water can harm people. This shows that a new can of worms is open.

With all that is going on with two more storms set to hit that side of the state, there is sure to be contamination on more than just the beach, and it is clear that there is much more of a threat to human health than we are being told.

Explanation: S&F!

I saw something about the turtles, dolphins and SHARKS! being forced up to the beach line as they try to escape the oil slick etc. I'd be more concerned about the sharks and their numbers and them being distressed [who knows how they'll really respond???
] AND my close proximity to them in their environment, than I would the oil sludge!


Personal Disclosure: I remember the good old days when throwing oil on turbulent waters used to calms things down!
