California state in the United States last week experienced the strongest earthquake in the last 20 years, causing roads to be cut in half, homes damaged, and causing thousands of bees to become victims.
According to The Sun, social networking account Khalil Underwood posted a video of countless bees lying motionless everywhere, from roads to homes. 'I'm not exaggerating . after the California earthquake, thousands of bees fell to the ground,' said Khalil.
Some experts say earthquakes may have changed the Earth's magnetic field, causing bees to be disoriented . This disturbs the bee population, causing them to be paralyzed and dead.
Animals have abnormal signs when an earthquake occurs.
Khalil initially counted 70 bees, but the number quickly rose to thousands.
Scientists are not sure if the earthquake is the direct cause of bee deaths. But animals have an unusual sign when an earthquake occurs .
Research results in Taiwan from 1999 to 2002, showed that earthquakes have a great impact on insect life. But more research is still needed to know exactly what happens.
The 7.1-magnitude earthquake that struck last week shook the city of Ridgecrest in the desert region of southern California. A giant crack appeared in the desert area.
Earlier, Southern California also suffered two earthquakes of 6.4 and 7.1 degrees in two consecutive days respectively on July 4 and 5.
