Top 10 messages from nature that can save you
Today the world moves too fast and modern technology sometimes makes us forget that we are able to feel something coming, we just have to relearn it. Other warning signs can be perceived by animals. Here are some signs of nature that can save your life.
Lakes are calm, unlike the sea and its sometimes dangerous waves. But it is often said “Beware of sleeping water” and this is indeed the case of lakes near a volcano. They are warm and pleasant, but they produce a deadly substance: carbon dioxide coming directly from the bottom of the lakes where the magma is passing underneath. You may remember the movie Volcano, where we see a young couple who decide to enjoy the warm waters near a volcano… Unfortunately, they are found lifeless: It is the carbon dioxide that killed them. So even if the water doesn’t seem too hot, it is dangerous to swim in it!
# 8 : Cracked snow is a sign of avalanche
There are several warning signs that indicate the arrival of an avalanche. If you are walking on hard snow but hear thumping noises or if the snow cracks. There is also a chance of an avalanche if there has been a snowstorm a few days before. It is advisable not to ski in the same area where an avalanche has recently occurred, as it may happen again. Another way to know when there will be a deluge is to pay attention to the change in temperature: If the air is suddenly warmer, it may turn the hard snow into powder and create a snowfall.
# 7 : Square waves
Square waves are beautiful, but from a distance! The only thing you can do in this case is to photograph them because this phenomenon does not happen every day. That said, don’t swim in them because the water can absorb you in the ocean bottom, or propel you. It is also dangerous to go there by boat. When the waves look like this, it means that they collide with each other, and will create a very powerful current, which can even make a ship turn around! This phenomenon is also called “crossed sea” and happens often on the West coast of France.
# 6 : If animals are running in your direction, there is a fire
When you see an animal running in your direction, you may think that it is running away from a zoo, a place where it was mistreated and this is quite possible. But if you see them running without stopping once, to graze a little for example, it means that it is panic and that there is a fire a few kilometers away. You can also observe the air and if you see smoke, be sure that there is a fire nearby. So turn around as quickly as possible.
# 5 : Lifeless fish on the beach
# 4 : During the full moon, avoid taking shelter in caves
It is not a legend when we say that the moon influences the tides, and it is possible that there are still phenomena to which the moon would be linked, we still have many to discover! If you venture into the wilderness, you can visit caves, but it is better to check the moon period before! Because if the cave is near the sea and it is the full moon, or the new moon, the tide may rise and the danger will be imminent.
If, while walking in the forest, you see trees whose lower trunks are bent, it is a sign that there will be a landslide. It looks a bit like an earth avalanche, which is very dangerous for anyone who is near it. Sometimes there can be two landslides in the same place. There are already rescuers who have been trapped in the earth and others who have died saving lives. So beware of J-shaped trees.
