Hundreds of dead fish wash up in East Rockaway, New York, USA

Fish Kill Alert

Hundreds of dead rotting fish are washing up in East Rockaway.

According to Newsday, the dead fish started showing up Tuesday in the Talfor Boat Basin.

Town officials say heavy rain appears to have been filling the saltwater with lower-oxygen fresh water, and that caused the fish to suffocate.
