Hundreds of dead fish found in a river in West Virginia, USA

Fish Kill Alert

A no swimming warning continues on the North Fork Catawba River in McDowell County as investigators try to figure out what killed hundreds of fish and other aquatic wildlife.
 
The fish kill was discovered Wednesday night on the river near Marion.
 
Health officials say scientists have taken samples from the river and hope to have results back by Monday.
 
The advisory affects about 7 miles of the river, which flows into Lake James and eventually becomes the Catawba River that flows west of Charlotte.
 
Experts say they don’t think ground water in the area was polluted by whatever might have killed the fish and other creatures in the river.
