California earthquake causes thousands of bees to drop dead.

A California earthquake with a 7.1 magnitude has caused thousands of bees to drop dead. Last Friday a huge earthquake shook the city of Ridgecrest causing
widespread fires and gas line ruptures. While no casualties have been reported, a video surfaced of another strange event the earthquake caused.YouTube star Khalil Underwood was left horrified to discover thousands of bees lying dead on the ground outside his house. In a video posted to Twitter on Saturday, he said: “Last night when I said there were a million bees on the floor, nobody believed me and you couldn’t see it in the dark.“This is what I f***ing meant, look how many bees are on the floor after the f***ing earthquake.”He later wrote: “I wasn’t exaggerating or joking... after the earthquake thousands of bees were vibrating on the floor and dying... this shit was so crazy to me.”Viewers of the video commented their suspicions on what caused the bees to drop dead. Some viewers of the video suggest that the quake had distorted the magnetic fields that the bees’ brains relied upon. Others believed they had evacuated their hive in a panic. Scientists have often noted how animals and insects can act strangely in the lead-up to an earthquake. One study in Northern Taiwan that monitored insect populations over a period when a 7.3 and 6.8 earthquake hit, noted 'large declines' in the number of individual insects and also individual species. The 7.1-magnitude quake struck just a day after a 6.4 magnitude quake hit the same area on Thursday.
