Trust the animals, they know!
In China, before a big quake, snakes came out of the ground in the winter!
Watch them so they don't get out of the house though.
A lot of animals will run off before a quake.
Our cats act scared or like they are feeling pain before bigger ones world wide.
My husband developed seizures a few years ago that they can't find a reason for.
Ever since, he gets achy, has pain & feels a lot of pressure on his chest before bigger quakes.
We both get ringing in our ears too.
Since I started paying attention, I notice I get really hungry,
even though I might have just eaten!
And lately very sleepy like I was given a sleeping pill.
Other times I get a burst of energy out of nowhere,
& sometimes a very 'antsy' feeling.
Some people get migraines.
There's a thread that some of us have been keeping track of our symptoms on:
Is it something electrical that's given off before a quake?
That would explain why hubby says it sometimes feels like he's going to have a seizure.
I know how unpleasant the ear ringing is for us,
I can imagine what it must be like for animals that have more sensitive hearing!
Hubby says sometimes it feels like he's being held under water & can't breathe.
Other times it feels like a truck is squeezing him up against a wall!
Imagine being an animal & not understanding where the noise or hurt is coming from!
Keep your eyes open & watch them very closely.
Especially if they start acting desperate to get away.
I don't remember how far in advance of a quake,
people have noticed the behavior though!
With our cats it's usually only a few hours.
Let us know if you notice anything else.
Maybe keep a glass of water on the table,
& see if you can see any ripples in it when the animals act up!!!
