South Carolina Flood Includes Alligators, Snakes, Fire Ant Islands

A floating island of thousands of fire ants in the
South Carolina flood. Definitely scary.  
The terrible flooding that is finally receding in South Carolina brought some other scary problems other than water.

Residents were warned to be alert for displaced alligators and snakes lurking around their ruined homes, businesses and neighborhoods.

Plus there's another problem. Fire ants, which are horrible insects that can really attack and bite and bite and BITE, have formed floating islands.

They were kicked out of their nests by the floods, and now have formed floating islands of thousands of ants that you DON'T want to tangle with.

Here's a video of the menace, taken by WSAV photojournalist Chris Murray:
