More than 10,000 earthworms found dead in a parking lot of 250m2 North Japan

August 13, 2012 JAPAN In Komatsu city Ishikawa, more than 10,000 earthworms were found dead in a parking lot. Ishikawa prefecture is facing Japan / Korea Sea. Mr. Kobayashi is living near the parking lot. He comments he found earthworms dead in the evening of 8/5/2012. It kept increasing and now it’s scattered around in the 250 m2 of the area. There are about 500 dead worms in the space for one car. Because 16 cars can park there, more than 10,000 worms are dead in the whole area including the passageway. A former director of an insect’s museum visited the place to comment it is rare to see this many worms dead at once. It’s an ordinary type of earthworm. He assumes they came from the near greenery to the parking lot for water because of the intense heat and died there. Citizens nearby the area talks, “I haven’t seen such a thing. Is this because of the intense heat?” or “It may increase more.” –Fukushima Diary

    Bet something else is on the horizen. Maybe a forewarning of another massive Earthquake. Who Knows- but something is going on.


  2. Lela says:

    its can’t be the heat most earthworms can burrow deep down enough to cool off since its cooler underground…its either the radiation that is driving them up or they can sense something bigger is coming their way…only time will tell


  3. Brandon says:

    Wow. The planet’s stories just get more and more and more bizarre by the day.


  4. Desmond says:

    More like methane coming up from the ground or chemicals being sprayed on the adjacent block of land that has forced them out from their hiding.


  5. Carl says:

    Could be related to radiation?


  6. Irene C says:

    I agree Marybell. I’ve seen a lot of earthworms on the sidewalk after a good rain, but never when it’s been dry. I always figured they go deeper for water when it’s dry. I tend to think that maybe it could be a seismic reason – like another large earthquake.


  7. Jon says:

    Alvin, check out this video what are your thoughts…sounds somewhat credible


    • I think very few people are taking this guy seriously, including myself. There are a host of issues with the video presentation which I won’t even get into…Further, the Van Allen radiation Belts are already crashing over Brazil in the SAA (South Atlantic Anomaly).


      The South Atlantic Anomaly is growing in size

      Brazil is the bread-basket for most of the southern hemisphere and last time we checked; birth rates were undaunted.


  8. Benny says:

    Yes a major earthquake must be on the way. These are all signs.Be safe.


  9. denise says:

    i found at least a dozen earth worms under my kids swimming pool when i was cleaning it out. i think your theory ain’t far off. seems the earth is becoming too dry. and note. any disturbance even with lack of moisture in the earth can cause them to rise to the surface confusing and making them disorientated. but something is happening to the earth and dramatically.


  10. ningnomaningnong says:

    Well they wanted out of the ground….like the fish out of the sea etc.


  11. windsofchange says:

    They came from the greenery to the cement parking lot for water!? They couldn’t come up w/ something better than that? Sad thing is a lot of ppl w/not think and just say” Oh, that must be it”

    Last year this happened in several places in the US too. I am so thankful when I find worms in my potted plants as I live in the desert…not too many worms in the ground/sand here.


    • niebo says:

      Because the source story is in Japanese, I wonder if there is an error in translation: change the “for water” to “because of water” or “due to water” and it makes more sense. Also, weather archives from Kochi University show cloudcover (could not find actual precipitation archives) over Northern Japan from 04 Aug through 07 Aug:

      So maybe they came up to avoid drowning, then got dried out, or, if rainfall was really heavy, a parking lot would be the perfect place to drown, because earthworms are kinda flat, aside from being round. Low to the ground, I mean. A quarter inch, standing or draining, would probably do it.

      But, of course, it could be a combination of things to which earthworms are sensitive: a heavy downpour of radioactive acid rain. . .prior to another major earthquake.


  12. Bill K says:

    I would get the heck out of there. Just to be on the safe side.


  13. Colleen says:

    Our earth is in birth pains. I think we will see and hear things that will cause our mouths to drop! Things are very strange in and around our planet.


  14. semmie says:

    They came from under the ground where, i think, toxic gases are rising up to the surface. And sinds these gases are letal for the worms they came to the surface and died there. Toxic gases mean activity down there…prepare for someting, erathquake, vulcanic eruption…something!


  15. sarah says:

    i use to see this all the time where i live in nz. after rain they got stranded on the tenise courts and died in the sun


  16. krystal says:

    Animals have keener sense of urgency, changes in environment. So, I would not be surprise if this has to do with possible future event or changes in environment due to radiation. Worms usually dig further under ground to seek more moisture, so why would they flee the moisture of ground to hard and hot surface?


    • good questions. since this is the first time they have seen this and since earthquakes are an almost daily occurance in Japan, I am leaning towards the radiation explaination…..but we will have to see.


  17. ron says:

    There sense of direction is off. Perhaps the geomagnetic poles are getting even more weak.


  18. radiogirl says:

    There is a Japanese scientist that specifically studied the movements of earthworms in relation to seismic activity.His opinion was there was a direct correlation between the two events.Quite interesting.God Bless All,R


  19. SilverFox says:

    When I mow, I watch the robins swoop down and follow the lawn tractor. I laughed and thought to myself, it’s like plowing a field…the birds gather to get the worms and bugs. Later, someone told me that it is the vibration of the tractor that brings the worms to the surface. If that is the case, I have to go along with earth tremors as some of you have said.


  20. nanoduck says:

    It is a fact that vibrations will cause worm to emerge. I have seen people who collect worms for bait “call” the worms to surface by using a rasp and piece of wood stuck into ground. So there may be vibrations from semsic activity too low to be felt by humans…so my bet is on an earthquake. That, or water is seeping upwards and Japan is sinking.


  21. Carolyn says:

    We are to have an electomagnetic pole shift and I am wondering if it could be earth’s magnetic fields? If you electrocute the ground, the worms will surface wouldn’t they?


  22. SoSo says:

    I just think soon Japan is gone, New Zealand is gone, many places will be just GONE.


    • Sophie Carlson says:

      I live in Nz and don’t believe from the dreams and visions I have had over the last 20 yrs that NZ is gone. Certainly parts of NZ will be gone but I have seen the maps from the Hopi Indians who visited a great many yrs ago and I have total faith in Spirit that parts of NZ will survive and that new land will come out of the sea on the West Coast. Some of us will survive and we will be in the right place at the right time God willing. Blessings, Love and Light


  23. jondy says:

    here is an article of a study done after the Japan quake. Earthworms were found to surface and swarm with vibration. Drought wouldn’t bring them to the surface, it would make them burrow deeper. Very interesting.


  24. Not to sure if any of you have seen these pictures but they certainly are touching to say the least.

        I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.-Zephaniah 1:3,  How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.- Jeremiah 12:4


  26. Syn Strykiir says:

    I know when I’m in the mood to catch a bunch of worms for fishing/etc. i get a knotted piece of wood and drive it into the ground then take another stick and rub up and down on it causing vibration like a mini earth quake.if you drive the knotted stick at least a foot into the dirt you can get worms coming out of the ground from up to 10ft away. the longer you do it the more come up. my reason for saying this is I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say I bet there is seismic activity driving the worms to the top.


    • Sylvia says:

      Bingo! Though I have never personally done this, it is how many bring up worms for bait. Soon it will shake, rattle & roll and it won’t just be Japan. I’m in Southern Calif foothills so I know my time is soon. Enjoy your life, walk in truth & spread the love is how I am living.
      Thank you Alvin again for thallis site ❤ !


  27. Joseph t. Repas says:

    Earthworms do tend to go deeper into the soil when it is overly hot and dry otherwise they will melt or evaporate to death. When we wanted to get earthworms for fishing when I was young my Dad would water the lawn heavilly to bring them up and also banging the surface of the ground will bring them to the surface, so I wonder if there is some kind of harmonic vibration there that the locals are not hearing but what that could be? I don’t know.


  28. Wes says:

    Well Its been very, very hot here 100 or so for weeks and not a drop of rain, yet we don’t have earth worms coming out of the ground in our state, there is surly another reason so lets all believe the water theory. And if you think that’s true then I have a pound of gold I will sell to you at 10 cents a pound.


  29. Nicholas says:

    Animals move before large earthmovements….maybe their holes are being moved about or they hear or sense ground movement. I dont know, I am not a worm.
