‘Sea Serpents’ Or Harbingers?

6 posts in this topic

Could the appearance of rare “sea serpents” washing ashore beaches in Southern California portend disaster?

According to traditional Japanese lore, oarfish rise to the water’s surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake, a notion that some scientists have speculated could be supported by the bottom-dwelling fish being more sensitive to seismic shifts.

Well, this doesn't bode well for southern California.

Will see if other creatures of the deep start washing up.

"The silvery carcasses of two giant oarfish were discovered along the Southern California coast last week, baffling scientists and gaining a growing online following who gawked at the bony, snake-like creatures.

A 14-foot oarfish washed up on a beach in the San Diego County coastal city of Oceanside last Friday. Several days earlier, a snorkeler found the carcass of an 18-foot oarfish off Catalina Island and dragged it to shore with some help."

Wait would this mean San Andreas is going to go or maybe the Cascadia subduction zone?

Its interesting to think that the oarfish are earthquake news bearers. Its just sad they have to die.

They have beaching a lot lately, while only being rare before these past few years.. Hell, mother nature warns us all the time and we just sit back and scratch our heads like dumb chickens.
