When water turned red

A rare occurrence meets all who visit the popular Bondi Beach in Australia, which has acquired a red color, like a set for a new Jaws sequel.

The popular beach in the region of Sydney has been closed, as a rare species of algae appeared in the area, literally painting the water red, and in fact some of the people who were there, reported it looked like tomato juice.

Known by the name of “Nocturnal Scintillans”, this weird algae, besides coloring water, seems to have killed a large number of fish. As a spokesperson for the local council said, this red water, though lacking toxic effects, can cause skin rash and eye irritation, due to high concentration in ammonia.

In any case, experts believe that water will turn back to normal this weekend, when, according to forecast, local temperature is expected to reach 40 degrees Celsius.
