Finally we know what all this stuff in the water is. I swim every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Cane Bay on St. Croix and had been off island for a month. I came back to this pea green ocean with all these horrible particulates. We couldn't see anything at all Monday, but it looked less severe this morning. At first we thought it was sewage, then we were told it was the coral spawning and now this.
I'm glad NOAA is in the area testing as it is really awful. I wonder how much longer it will last and also if it is harmful? We have been getting stung more frequently since it arrived and will be happy to see it leave.
