Mass whale beaching fuels japan quake fears
MetadataShow full item record
The mass beaching more than 150 melon-headed whales on japan's shore has fuelled fears of a repeat of a seemingly unrelated event in the country - the devastating 2011 undersea earthquake that killed around 19,000 people. Despite a lack of scientific evidence linking the two events, a flurry of online commentators have pointed to the appearance of around 50 melon-headed whales - a species that is a member of the dolphin family - on Japan's beaches six days prior to the monster quake, which unleashed a towering tsunami and triggered a nuclear disaster.
