March 31, 2020 – 6.5 mag quake Boise, Id: An earthquake struck north of Boise Tuesday evening, with people across a large area reporting shaking. The U.S. Geological Survey reports the magnitude 6.5 temblor struck just before 6 p.m. It was centered 73 miles (118 kilometers) northeast of Meridian, near the rural mountain town of Stanley. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. More than 2 million live in the region that could feel the Idaho quake, according to the USGS, with reports of shaking coming in from as far away as Helena, Montana, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Marcus Smith, an emergency room health unit coordinator at St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center, said the hospital, about 65 miles (104 kilometers) south of the epicenter, shook but the quake didn’t interfere with the treatment of any patients. The hospital in Blaine County is on the front line of Idaho’s coronavirus outbreak, in a region with the nation’s highest per-capita rates of known COVID-19 cases outside of New York City and its surrounding counties. “It felt like a wave going through the ground, so I knew right away what it was. It just felt like waves going through the ground,” he said. –AP
March 26, 2020 – Israel: Adi Moskowitz took to Facebook to post what he called “lots of dead bats” he discovered near the Gan Leumi Park in Ramat Gan on Saturday. The ‘dead bat plague’ was also corroborated several miles away by a resident in the Pardes Katz neighborhood of Bnei Brak who caught the lifeless creature on video. Many of the bats are young and show no signs of trauma. “The phenomenon is extremely rare” explains Nora Lifshitz, founder of the Israeli Bat Society in an exclusive interview with Breaking Israel News.
The only explanation Lifshitz can offer is that it was the result of the cold weather of the weekend storm. However; she did admit that it was just a theory and that it’s a phenomenon she’s never heard of before. Others are blaming recently installed 5-G technology. This recent occurrence is a small example of a much larger phenomenon that is prophesied to appear as part of the all-encompassing experience at the end-of-days. –Breaking Israel News

March 22, 2020 – Croatia: The Croatian capital Zagreb experienced its strongest earthquake in 140 years Sunday March 22, 2020, when a 5.3-magnitude tremor was felt in the city and across the Western Balkans. Buildings were damaged, fires broke out, and multiple people were injured, including a teenager who is reportedly in critical condition, Al Jazeera reports. While the challenge of an earthquake on its own is difficult enough, Zagreb is also dealing — like the rest of the world — with the coronavirus pandemic, which left its citizens in a state of confusion and highlighted the fact that the outbreak doesn’t prevent other crises from arising and could indeed exacerbate seemingly unrelated problems. Initially, Croatia’s Interior Minister Davor Božinović told people to remain on the streets out of concern for any aftershocks.
