A Pool Of Water Near The Dead Sea Turns Blood Red, Authorities Investigating

Geologists believe the red color of the pool near the Dead Sea may be caused by algae, iron oxide or added chemicals.

It may not be Revelation 16, but it gives us a good look into what that time may be look like.

Although water turning red may conjure up thoughts of the biblical plague of blood in the Exodus, scientists believe the cause is much more down to earth.

Sakhr Al-Nusour, the head of the Jordanian Geologists Syndicate, telling the Jordanian Al Ghad news that the red color could have been caused by algae, iron oxide or the addition of substances by humans to change the water's color to red.

A spokesman for the ministry, Omar Salama, told the Jordanian Petra News Agency that the pond is small and isolated from the waters of the Dead Sea. The results of the examinations of the pond will reportedly be released within the coming days.
