Something’s Not Right in Southern Oregon

Not will it, but when will it?
“Something’s Not Right in Southern Oregon”

Earthfiles has been receiving worried emails from viewers and listeners who sense that something is significantly wrong in a number of American communities — ranging from absence of insects and pollinators to missing birds. This morning I received the following email from a man who has lived in southwestern Oregon’s Rogue Valley eleven miles north of Medford for 30 years. What he describes in his email are such striking changes around him that he now wonders if a large seismic event is about to happen and the birds at least know in advance.

“I live on twenty acres on the tip of a mountain that overlooks the entire Rogue Valley. I live among a vast array of wildlife, and I pay particular attention to the avian population.

Normally, the Vultures arrive back in the Rogue Valley around the first week in March, but this year the Vultures started returning the first week in February in small numbers, but it was still significant because I’d never seen that before in the nearly 30 years I’ve lived here.

My hummingbirds are legion and I feed them with up to four large feeders. The Anna Hummingbirds stay all through the winter, while their smaller brethren return from the south arrive about the same time as the Vultures. Not only have the smaller Hummingbirds not returned yet, but all of a sudden, my huge population of Anna Hummingbirds have vanished completely and I haven’t had to fill a single feeder in at least a full week.

But what has really got my attention is the fact the Swallows have not yet returned, and that, more than any other barometer, tells me something is very, very wrong. The Swallows always return the first week of March too, but this is March 18th, and they are nowhere to be seen.

This winter has been relatively mild, with very low precipitation. It has gotten cold, but not as cold as previous years. California got a lot of rain due to El Nino, but again, not enough to disrupt a natural cycle.

Are we about to experience a severe natural disaster? While science has never recognized proof of strange animal behavior prior to a major natural disaster, there has been ample anecdotal input from observers like myself that animals can detect a major natural disaster about to happen.”

“The Pacific Northwest hasn’t been rocked by a major earthquake from the Cascadia Subduction Zone in about 330 years, yet science has established that the Cascadia Subduction Zone blows on average every 300 years, so we’re overdue. But what makes the CSZ so dangerous is that it can hit 9.0 or more on the Seismograph, which would absolutely decimate the Oregon coastal communities from shaking, fires and tsunamis, but would also isolate most of Oregon, Northern California and parts of Southern Washington due to collapsed highway and other travel infrastructure on a massive scale that will make rescue and recovery efforts very difficult. Many people will die, especially if Portland is hit hard, because the population of Oregon 330 years ago was minuscule compared to what it is today.

My instincts are literally screaming at me. Maybe it’s because I lived only 6 miles from the epicenter of the Loma Prieta earthquake that hit Northern California in 1989. That was a 7.2, and it did a lot of damage to structures and roadways to the point only helicopters could initially get in to help and feed people — and in Santa Cruz County we were only 40 minutes drive from the Silicon Valley! But when the roads to Santa Cruz County were all blocked due to slides and damage, we might as well have been living on Saturn. The cutoff was that complete! Imagine that kind of complete cutoff, but one which affects the entire State of Oregon and not just one relatively small region in California.”

I find it very disheartening how far the way many view science has come so far from nature. To say that the "animals don't know" is silly. This is the first i have heard of this and very disturbing especially if there is more to collaborate it.

Thanks IT

Yeah, good post. The New Yorker did an execellent article on this three years ago.

When that happens, nothing else will be news for awhile.

Did you visit the Earthfiles site? It's safe. Lots more examples. It was the first I'd heard of it too, and I can't find anything else on it.

Howe is eccentric, but so am I. She's not a whacko, imo. Her stories often can be verified by quick scans of the names/times/places on the local media. Also, sometimes she breaks stories, and later on the authorities catch up.

She's done the best reporting on the booms heard all over the planet. Sampler: https://youtu.be/3KHvcmx2xIA

The "spirit" cannot be excised depending on the content. They are inseparably married. The spirit can overcome all the stains. The stains can't overcome the spirit.

There's shit going down, "what it is ain't exactly clear."
