Dark Cloud in Corpus Christi Bay Not Caused by a Spill

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

There were concerns tonight over what some people thought was some kind of spill in Corpus Christi Bay. We received several calls about a dark circle in the water near Shoreline and the Omni Hotel. It's something that we could see from our Exclusive Lex Cam.  Marina Police went to check on it. Turns out, it was nothing to be alarmed about, rather the dark circle was caused naturally.

There is a concrete slab that goes out about 150 feet. The slab is barely covered by the water.  When the waves pick up, it washes off the mud from the concrete.

Experts say this is natures way of cleaning it up.
