Entire ecosystem at risk from south Georgia drought- hunderds of fish found dead

June 30, 2011 – ALBANY, Ga. (AP) – Drought conditions are being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of fish at Radium Springs in south Georgia. Authorities say the creek that normally connects Radium Springs to the Flint River is dry, and the water level is so low that fish don’t have enough oxygen to survive. WALB-TV reports that the natural spring is usually 24 feet deep. Authorities say levels have dropped at least four feet, and all the fish have been pushed into one small area. Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Supervisor Rob Weller says hundreds of fish have died, including large-mouth bass, blue gill and gar. Radium Springs is one of 15 major springs around Albany. State officials say that without rain, more of them could see the same problems as Radium Springs. -11alive

    You are a shaman Alvin. I am beginning to read your book finally. To see the chronology of the 2010 disasters is like a slap in the face. Wake up!
