A 2-meter long oarfish washed up on Oak Bay’s Rattenbury Beach on Thursday morning. Another one was found floating off Los Angeles in 8 feet water!
That 2 days after a series of powerful earthquakes rocked several locations along the Pacific one by one this week, all in a seismic region known as the ‘Ring of Fire’ within just 24 hours.
Now, after a M7.1 devastated Mexico City, M6.1 hit New Zealand and off Japan, an a M6.4 on Vanuatu experts admit the Pacific is experiencing ‘unusual’ seismic activity, leaving the West Coast on edge.
And now a dead oarfish found on a Oak Bay’s beach in BC along Cascadia:
And another one hanging under a boat in about 8′ of water at Little Scorpion Anchorage of Los Angeles:
For numbers of people, oarfish sightings are believed to be a sign for an imminent earthquake, as they usually live in the deep and cold waters of the ocean, thus being more sensitive to the movements of faults and capable of sensing tremors on the Earth’s crust.
Oarfish was known to be God’s messenger in the sea (from the deep sea). Long ago, before the 8.8 magnitude in Japan, 20 oarfishes were found stranded by the nearby beaches.
