Follow us: - We have seen on a couple of occasions how lakes and seas have suddenly turned red.

In August a lake in Southern France unexpectedly changed color and shortly before that the strange appearance of Azov Sea stunned residents who saw how the water had turned red....

Next on the list is the Yangtze, the longest and largest river in China and the third longest river in the world.

Earlier this week, the Yangtsze River, near the city of Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River surprised residents by becoming orange-red. Some people were so amazed that they collected samples in water bottles.

Others like a fisherman ignored the phenomena went about his daily business as if nothing had happened.

The cause is currently unknown, but it not the first time a river has turned red in China. Last December, the Jian River in the city of Luoyang, in the north Henan province, turned red after becoming polluted by a powerful dye.

The dye was being dumped into the city's storm drain network by two illegal dye workshops.

Officials raided the factories to shut them down, and then disassembled their machinery.

According to chapter 16, verse 4 of the Bible's book of Revelations, one of the signs that Armageddon is near will be an angel pouring a bowl into the rivers, turning them into blood.

"And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood." (Book of Revelation2, 16:4)

This and other similar events have frightened many people who consider the change of color as a sign of the end days and fulfillment of the Biblical prophecy.

Officials are reportedly investigating the cause.
