Boiling River Near Yellowstone National Park Heats Worries
A river near Yellowstone National Park suddenly changed colors and began to boil and emit yellowish noxious gases. Some witnesses wondered if “we’re all about to die.” Is this just another volcanic vent or a sign of bad things to come?
“. . . . this particular event ended after four days, [biologist] Burkhardt says recent other activity has released enough hydrogen sulfide into the river that there’s a 1.5 mile sulfur-smelling dead zone that is completely void of fish. Burkhardt calls it a “chemical barrier” blocking live fish from entering. That can’t be a good sign.”
Thanks, Barbara F., for the big tip! 😉
