This is my very first post and it’s a beauty. Please know that I tried my very best to make this as short as I could to get a helpful answer to my question. This is a serious question and some real and frightened people are depending on this answer.
I am a 55 year old woman who lives in Western Maryland. Last night I received an alarming phone call from my youngest brother who is 49 years old and lives in Waveland, Mississipi with his 7 year old son. For this purpose I will call him George.
George is a dyed in the wool southern man who dearly loves and is very loyal to Missisippi having lived in in this area of Mississipi for 40 years. It would not be an understatement to say George would rather die than leave Mississipi. George lives on and cares for the land that our older brother (who I will call Frank) has owned for about 20 years. Prior to that time my parents owned and lived on this land. Our brother Frank lives in California with his wife and is very busy with 7 children and 3 grandchildren. All but 2 children still living at home. Frank visits his brother and the land on the average of once or twice a year depending on his budget.
This land is a conservationist dream having been kept in it’s natural state. There has never been any construction on this land. My parents and George always lived in trailers and have a well. This land has been blessed with fresh water lakes that has been home in the past to aligators, turtles, fish and crawfish or all the typical water life of the area. Then there was the Hurricane Katrina and the land was under a great deal of water for a period of time. Like so many people in that area, my brother George and his young son lost everything. F.E.M.A. gave my youngest brother George and his son the temporary use of a trailer.
Recently my brother George became ill and was diagnosed with a brain tumor along with additional, and multiple symptoms that the doctors have yet to find the causes of. This is a blow since now George can no longer work.
Now this story gets scary:
My youngest brother started noticing changes on the property.
My youngest brother began noticing that the fish are now a not normal huge as are the crawfish. These and other changes has been really troubling him. At first he thought perhaps it was because his brother’s land was under flood waters for a time and that the mixing of salt water from the bay mixed with the fresh water of the lakes and caused the many changes to the life with-in the lakes. but the situation got even more scarier…
My youngest brother took his young son fishing on one of the lakes as has been his custom most of his life. As the day came to an end and it started to get dark he noticed a very strange thing. The water glowed! When he threw something into the water it the ripples glowed with a blue and green color. As he explained it to me, the water glowed like it was liquid metal plugged into an electrical current! This experience so shook my brother and not knowing what to do, he called the local police. They sent a police car and soon there were 3 additonal police cars parked on the property with the occupants staring out over the glowing lakes.
We are suspecting the placement of Mercury poisening during the flood of Hurricane Katrina but we are aware we know very little to nothing about the cause of these disturbing signs. George also tells me that his neighbors, a large family with several children are also having un-explained illnesses. I am online searching for answers/help for my brothers especially George who is having a very tough time of this.
Our question for here is: What could be causing these symptoms to the lakes?/Where can we find more information and advice on this?
Thank you for your valuable time,
