Thousands of fish and animals die in floods

Jan 20th 2011 -

FLOODS have killed thousands of fish, birds and other animals at Geelong's Reedy Lake.

Recent heavy rains have filled the normally shallow freshwater lake at Moolap, dumping dead animals from other nearby waterways into it and sucking away the water's oxygen.

Thousands of dead creatures are now floating on the lake's surface after having drowned or suffocated in the water, which has turned black.

Geelong Field and Game member Ray Agg discovered the grisly scene yesterday morning while monitoring his group's bird conservation work at the lake.

"We've got a lot of bird nesting boxes set up at Reedy Lake, and a lot of those went underwater with the floods, so lots of eggs and young duck and ibis chicks have been lost," Mr Agg said. "There are thousands of dead fish and eels all over the place too."

"It's amazing, I've been here since the '70s and I've not seen this before, it's really a shame." Read More...

Interesting Note: One of the most fascinating set of prophecies comes out of the Hopi nation located in the Southwestern United States. Many prophecies foretold by the Hopi appear to have come true.
