"It doesn't taste great."

WNYW-TV:

MYFOXNY.COM - A local news reporter from Washington, D.C. ended up getting covered in what is probably the remnants of raw sewage as he delivered live hurricane reports from Ocean City, Md.

WTTG-TV reporter Tucker Barnes was providing live updates for stations around the country as a wall of what he described as sea foam poured over him.

He noted that he had immersed himself in organic material.  That "organic material" was most likely the effects of raw sewage pouring into the water during the storm.

"It doesn't taste great," he said.

Gawker:

The mystery "sea foam" was mostly likely made up of raw sewage that had poured into the water during the storm and then mixed with cyanobacteria, causing it to foam up. You know, kind of like the nasty top layer that forms on your Frappuccino after you neglect it for a few minutes and the whipped cream starts to melt into the icy brown part. Except toxic.
