A central Kansas family hopes to learn what caused the deaths of dozens of birds that fell from trees outside their house. Elizabeth Stange says it started with one or two birds tumbling to the ground Thursday afternoon, followed by dozens more. The Sterling woman told KWCH-TV that the birds all died within minutes of each other. By evening, Stange says, she and her family collected about 50 birds from their driveway and yard. Stange says a local veterinarian told her the birds probably ate something poisonous. But a few were sent to Kansas State University for a closer look. At one point, Stange's family worried about leaving the house for fear of being hit by a falling bird. She calls the episode bizarre. - The Wichita Eagle

Planetary Tremors: Precursors To An Imminent Disaster In America - 4.2 Quake & Swarm In Arkansas, Seismic Tremors Across America!
Arkansas, since midnight. The majority of the epicenter of the quakes was located at 2 miles NNE of Greenbrier. At 11:46 CST, a magnitude 3.5 quake. The depth of the earthquake, 3.9 miles. On Wednesday, a 4.2 quake three miles northeast of Greenbrier, north-central Arkansas — the largest quake in the region since two natural gas companies agreed to close nearby injection wells last month. It’s one of 10 quakes the U.S.G.S has recorded in the region since the one on Wednesday. On February 28th, a 4.7 earthquake strike 4 miles northeast of Greenbrier at a depth of 2.4 miles.
As I have indicated before, the recent swarm of earthquakes are related to the earlier swarms, and can't be blamed only on the natural gas process called "fracking," or salt water disposal or "injection" wells, as is wrongly presented in the following piece.
The sudden swarm of earthquakes in Arkansas — including the largest quake to hit the state in 35 years — is very possibly an after effect of natural-gas drilling, experts warn. At issue is a practice called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” in which water is injected into the ground at high pressure to fracture rock and release natural gas trapped within it. Geologists don’t believe the fracking itself is a problem. But Steve Horton, an earthquake specialist at the University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI), is worried by a correlation between the Arkansas earthquake swarm and a side effect of the drilling: the disposal of wastewater in injection wells. - FOX News.
‘A study of seismic activity near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport by researchers from SMU and UT-Austin reveals that the operation of a saltwater injection disposal well in the area was a “plausible cause” for the series of small earthquakes that occurred in the area between October 30, 2008, and May 16, 2009.’ - Geology.com.
Moreover, they are definitely related to an imminent disaster event likely to hit America. These earthquakes are part of a swarm of earthquakes that began on Tuesday February 15, 2011 and is continuing. This area is slightly south of and most likely related to similar activity (known as the Guy earthquake swarm) of hundreds of small earthquakes near Guy, Arkansas from August 2010 to present. Central Arkansas has a history of earthquake activity with a swarm of thousands of earthquakes smaller than magnitude 4.5 to 4.7 in the early 1980s and another swarm in 2001 (known as the Enola earthquake swarms). Seismologists and geologists have already predicted that there is a 90% chance of 6.5 to 7.0 earthquake within the next 50 years on the dangerous New Madrid Earthquake Zone, the eastern edge of Arkansas. The New Madrid Zone, the location of 4 devastating 8.0 magnitude quakes that struck the region in late 1811-early 1812.
MASS ANIMAL DIE-OFF: Thousands Of Dead Starfish Wash Up On The Beaches Of South Carolina As Storm Throws Them Out From The Sea!
Across the Earth, the mysterious animal die-offs continue, with the latest reports of the death of thousands of starfish along the coast of South Carolina. The continuance of a trend that started earlier this year, when thousands of birds dropped suddenly from the sky in Arkansas and Louisiana, followed by several other species dying by the hundreds, thousands and millions worldwide as the new reality of the possibility of a global extinction is increasingly permeating into the mainstream consciousness.
Stretching along the shore as far as the eye can see, it is a galaxy of starfish. More than 10,000 were left high and dry on the sands after choppy seas washed them from their feeding grounds. And unfortunately, nearly all perished, unable to get back to the safety of the water. The graveyard of orange and pink extends more than a quarter of a mile along the golden sands of Holkham Beach in Norfolk. Margaret Perrott, 63, was distraught after seeing the devastation on her morning walk. 'It's a long stretch of beach and there were just thousands of them littering the shore line for as far as you could see,' she said. The starfish, which washed up early last week, may have been victims of dredgers scraping the seabeds for mussels, their favourite food. The process could have dislodged the feeding starfish and the currents carried them to the shore. But Nigel Croasdale, of the Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary, believes Mother Nature is the most likely culprit.He said: 'Strandings tend to occur once a year or once every two years. 'They are also most common between November and March - the time of the year when we experience bigger tides.' Mrs Perrott estimated that the carpet of orange and pink stretched for more than a quarter of mile. He said: 'Strandings tend to occur once a year or once every two years.

As we continue to monitor and track the monumental Earth changes, here is another weird story that is worthy of consideration, as the planet rapidly plunge towards a worldwide catastrophic geological upheaval.
