Within a few days an earthquake struck the city and it sank to the depths of the ocean. In Tokyo in 1923, catfish were seen jumping out of the water shortly before a big quake hit Japan that year. It is believed that the catfish might pick up tiny changes in the electrical currents. Many people have witnessed their pets behaving oddly before earthquakes. Prior to the earthquake in Sichuan China in 2008, zoo animals were acting unusual. Some species like dogs can hear sound frequencies that may be related to the shifting of the earth. In tropical storms, it has been noticed that even sharks swim into deeper waters, from a slight drop in the barometric pressure. On March 11, 2011, a Japanese doctor, named Kiyoshi Shimamura had noticed an increase in dog bites and other odd dog behavior just prior to major earthquakes in Japan. Scientists think some animals can see ultraviolet light and other sensations, we may not be aware of. Birds are known to be sensitive to air pressure changes, and often hunker down before a big storm. in Florida, researchers studying tagged sharks say they flee to deeper water just before a big hurricane arrives. within a week or so prior to an earthquake, there will be a very significant increase in the number of dogs and cats that have run away from their homes. Wildlife experts believe animals' more acute hearing and other senses might enable them to hear or feel the Earth's vibration, tipping them off to approaching disaster long before humans realize what's going on VS.
