I believe that animals can sense impending earthquakes and tsunamis. Maybe it’s because they are attuned to different frequencies or changes in air pressure, temperature or sounds.
When I’m swimming in the ocean I can feel when a storm is coming. The currents are different and the swell changes. The water moving around my body is more powerful and sweeping. The fish go deep, and still beneath rocks and kelp.
If you listen carefully, you will see and feel change coming.
