OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA -- A loud ‘boom’ was heard by Oklahomans on Thursday morning, January 27, 2011m but officials confirmed that it was not an earthquake. Eyewitness News 5 began reporting a possible earthquake around 10:30 a.m. The United States Geological Survey said no such earthquake had occurred. The last earthquake in Oklahoma was at 9:53 a.m. on Jan. 19. It was a magnitude of 2.8, according to the USGS. So what was the January 27th morning boom?
January 29, 2011 Albuquerque, New Mexico - On January 27 to 28, 2011, at Earthfiles and Coast to Coast AM radio, I reported news about the many animal die-offs around the world since December 2010 to date. In Beebe, Arkansas, at 11 PM on New Year's Eve December 31, 2010, at least 5,000 red-wing blackbirds and starlings were found dead in a mile stretch of rural countryside. Authorities tried to blame the deaths on fireworks scaring all the birds from trees in the dark and right after a thunderstorm. What local residents did report was seeing birds flying into car windows and houses low to the ground, but not necessarily linked to fireworks.
