If You See This Fish, Find Shelter Fast (and Other Natural Disaster Warnings)



Can animals sense earthquakes? Nobody can reliably predict when and where an earthquake will occur. But there are animals that can be used to predict earthquakes! For example, oarfish can feel the electromagnetic changes happening when underwater earthquakes shake the bottom of the ocean. Plus, oarfish, the longest bony fish in the world, are really bad swimmers and can’t withstand strong currents. That’s why they drift to the shore before tsunamis.

But this isn’t the only way to predict earthquakes. Have you ever heard of earthquake lights? They don’t come out before every earthquake and take different colors and shapes. From short blue sparks to huge forks of light, they look as though some interstellar visitors decided to see how things are down on Earth. They can look like ball lightning that stays up from tens of seconds to minutes. Quake lights have been spotted all across the world over the centuries, from Italy to San Francisco and Japan. Powerful earthquakes followed them… What natural disasters can people predict? And how do we do it?
