Earthquake Noticed by Animals First

Friday August 26, 2011, 6:48 pm Heard a woman on NPR describing this phenomenon well observed at the zoo or wildlife park where she works. Maybe the National Zoo. I was driving at the time and distractedly missed that detail. There's also a professional geologist named James Berkland who has been tracking missing pet ads in newspapers to predict near-term quakes for years. Claims if there's a spike in runaway pets, it indicates a probable quake within a few days, if other conditions are right. He also believes in syzygy, which is not generally accepted as an earthquake predictor by other scientists; but he seems thorough and sincere. send green star | flag as inappropriate Why is this inappropriate?
