Dog Senses Earthquake

[YouTube - Link]
This amazing footage is from an Arcata, California news station. We don't know why a dog was in the news room, but the canine knew something was up several seconds before any humans could feel the earthquake that shook northern California on Saturday.

Mark, what do the P-waves feel like if we weren't ignoring them? And is it any different than, say, the rumbling caused by a train passing, a diesel truck idling outside or a dozen other sensations that we routinely ignore?

This video is showing up in Norwegian news media now, with the caption "from the French embassy in Haiti".

Hey everyone, I am "Beardy", the guy in the video. And yes, I am a pretty fun guy and no I am not a convicted rapist. Babycakes, your brother must be very handsome. The dog is owned by a co-worker of mine. The only reason she was sitting behind me was the rest of my lunch (insert fat guy joke here) in my trash can I caught her trying get a couple minutes before the quake hit. We are in the Times-Standard newsroom in Humboldt County and if it happens again the only thing I'm doing differently is running faster.

Earthquakes produce Infrasound waves that precede the earthquake by several seconds. Lots of animals can sense this and know it means trouble. Dogs have very keen sensory abilities.
