Frogs Flood Greece -- Precursor To Major Quake?
Macedonian International News Agency ^ | Friday, May 28, 2010 | unattributed

Posted on 05/28/2010 5:05:00 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

There was a flood of frogs on a highway in Greece, which has managed to close down the highway for hours. Greek officials confirmed that one of the critical northern highways was closed for a couple of hours, due to the unexpected swarm of frogs.

Solun traffic police chief of the town, Giorgos Thanoglou, said that, there were millions of frogs that had thoroughly carpeted the highway. This happened on Wednesday, near the village of Langadas, which is located around 12 miles east of Solun. Giorgos Thanoglou said that, "There was a carpet of frogs."

According to reports, the traffic on the highway was affected due to the 'flood of the frogs' and three car drivers also skidded away from the road, when they tried to swerve their car in order to avoid hitting the frogs present on the road. However fortunately no causalities were reported, due to the invasion of the road by the frogs.

It is still not clear, as to why there was a flood of millions of frogs on the road, but the traffic police chief Giorgos is speculating that one of the reasons could be the lack of food at their place of inhabitation. However, according to Chinese mythology, millions of frogs running away from a region is an indication of an impending disastrous earthquake.

Nah, they invested heavily in Greek bonds, and are headed to the capitol to riot. It just takes a while to hop that far. It ain't easy being green.

I’m guessing prime weather for a big hatch or something.

Explosive eruptions shook two huge volcanos in Central and South America on Friday, forcing thousands of people to flee their homes and disrupting air traffic as ash drifted over major cities.

I guess this is why the Greeks are saying that the frogs are coming.

All I can think of is the play by Aristophanes - remarkably enough, another Greek comedy, too.

Have you looked at the Gulf of Mexico lately?

Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.

Impending earth quake sounds good to me...animals feel the earth moving before people do and the smaller the animal is to the ground the more they feel it...but snakes would also be included..along with toads...

Years aback we had a small earthquake in Michigan...I was working on the 3rd floor of the hospital and felt the table move, then I realized the table was bolted to the floor...those on the 6th floor actually felt the building move slightly

I was also going to send you an article about the volcanos in Guatemala and Ecuador. Last night I saw a full moon, and I said to my housemate, “YOu know, I’ll bet we will have a major earthquake or volcano in the next couple of days. Darn, I hate being right. This may be the same article, but if not, feel free to make it a separate post, SC. Meanwhile I hope the Greek frogs are wrong, poor Greece has enough problems.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100529/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/lt_guatemala_volcano OK, it is the same article.

In the early ‘80’s we had a cricket mess in Bakersfield. The local college had to close for a couple of days because the halls were, literally (the REAL “literally”), wall to wall crickets. Crickets were EVERYWHERE (the ALMOST literal, “everywhere”)!

Every once in a great while, when conditions are just right, we get frogs coming out in droves. They start crossing the streets and backroads in the country and what a mess. You simply can’t avoid driving over them and there are smushed frogs all over the roads.

It’s absolutely disgusting.
