On Fox 8: Tests of rainwater showed “aluminum, magnesium, chloride, copper, nickel… things you shouldn’t find” (VIDEO)


People question whether coast really is clear, Fox 8 New Orleans, October 11, 2010 at 12:29 a.m. EDT:

On top of the economic impacts, coastal residents fear that the health effects are uncertain.  "On June 16th I walked out of my front door and hit the ground.  The smell was so strong I could not breathe.  It literally took my breathe away.  I didn't think I would ever smell anything like that ever.. and we smell it every now and again," said [Vicki Perrin with the Coastal Heritage Society of LA] .  It's because of those strong odors that Perrin said she began testing rainwater.

"Aluminum, magnesium, chloride, copper, nickel.. these are things you shouldn't find in your rainwater," said Perrin.
