הירדן יסוב לשחור - Massive Oil Spill Hits Jordan River
OK - maybe not the Jordan River you were thinking of, but the one in Utah.
Residents are advised to stay away from Red Butte Canyon and Liberty Park so crews can adequately manage the spill. All water access points along Red Butte Creek, Liberty Park and the Jordan River should be avoided by humans and animals at this time.
The Salt Lake Valley Health Department said the oil has leaked into the Jordan River in two areas on the Salt Lake City's west side.Officials say drinking water for residents has not been affected and will have no threat for residents surrounding the area.
But seriously, being that this is a river, this can further be Mekayeim the verse in Yehezkel and the gemara in Sanhedrin despite Josh's critique.
