I Believe This Was Expected
Bacteria in Waters 10X Safe Levels

Not a big surprise that officials are saying the flood waters are contaminated. Gee, ya' think. Let's see dead bodies, urine, other scummy things like gas and oil.
"The results came as no surprise to health officials who have been warning about the toxicity of the floodwaters since Hurricane Katrina."
"Rescue workers and residents remaining in the city were urged to take precautions to avoid getting the water on their skin — especially into cuts or other open wounds — much less in their mouths."
Sounds like good advice to me. I think residents should be out of the city by now and all that should be left is rescue workers, but of course that is not the case. The evacuees planned for Sacramento destination, should be arriving here tomorrow.
