The Attorney General for the Environment (PMA) closed some beaches from Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, due to the presence of a marine foam, whose origin or cause has not yet been identified.

The presence of this foam on some beaches became a tourist attraction, because dozens of people came to take pictures with it.

Municipal Civil Protection Personnel traveled just over a kilometer of beach, located at the height of the Plaza de las Culturas, between the Puerto México, Petroquímica and Playa Sol colonies, belonging to Coatzacoalcos.

Given the ignorance of the origin of the phenomenon (same that mobilized various state and federal agencies), water samples were taken, where it was found that It did not have an unpleasant smell, neither of chemicals or detergents, in addition to verifying that it was a completely white foam.

After the minutes, the winds that were registered in the municipality they carried the foam almost to the shores of the city’s coastal jetty.

The The Attorney General’s Office for the Environment initiated the investigation of this strange phenomenon to find out its origin, cause and composition.
