‘Sea Serpents’ Or Harbingers? Oarfish Washed Up Year Before Japan Quake

Prophecy Sign:  Massive earthquakes during the coming Tribulation 

Can strange aquatic signs portend the soon occurrence of a major, (and devastating), earthquake? According to the fisherman of Japan, the answer is a deficient yes.  So if that is the case, the recent mass deaths of millions of Starfish off the British Columbia coast and the recent washing to shore of Oarfish in California may be harbingers of such a quake to come.  Given that the Cascadia fault line off the west coast of North America is long due for a major shaking, it should not come as a surprise to anyone when the big one strikes.

Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. Revelation 16:18 & 20 NIV

‘Sea Serpents’ Or Harbingers? Oarfish Washed Up Year Before Japan Quake
Could the appearance of rare “sea serpents” washing ashore beaches in Southern California portend disaster? The question comes following the discovery of the carcass of a rare 18-foot-long oarfish off the coast of Catalina Island on Oct. 13, followed by another snakelike 14-foot-long oarfish found on Oct. 18 in Oceanside. Fishermen in Japan reported a sharp uptick in oarfish sightings in March 2010 following the massive magnitude-8.8 earthquake in Chile that same month, which marked almost exactly one year before the country was devastated by its own magnitude-8.9 quake in northeast Japan.
According to traditional Japanese lore, oarfish rise to the water’s surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake, a notion that some scientists have speculated could be supported by the bottom-dwelling fish being more sensitive to seismic shifts.

Vancouver Aquarium 'alarmed' at mass die-off of starfish on B.C. ocean floor
Last month, a diver alerted Vancouver Aquarium staff that he had found a number of dead and decaying sunflower sea stars in the cold Pacific waters of a popular dive spot just off the shore of West Vancouver. Within weeks, the tentacled orange sea stars had all but disappeared in Howe Sound and Vancouver Harbour, disintegrating where they sat on the ocean floor. And aquarium staff don't know just how far-reaching the "alarming" epidemic has been, and whether this and other sea star species will recover. "They're gone. It's amazing," said Donna Gibbs, a research diver and taxonomist on the aquarium's Howe Sound Research and Conservation group. "Whatever hit them, it was like wildfire and just wiped them out."
