Florida’s Lake Buchanan kicks up a stink

18 November 2012

If you are one of the many apartment dwellers around Orlando’s Lake Buchanan, you might want to keep your windows closed for a day or two!  An algal bloom (must have gone unnoticed for a while if it’s as bad as the reports suggest) appears to be the cause.  Samples have been sent for toxin analysis – which will be back next week. I am always amazed at these delays, as for quite some time it has been possible to do on site “dip-stick” tests and get a result in minutes.

Nice video!  First one I have seen with night-time news reporting!
