The Daze Of NOAA: Experts Perplexed As Number Of Dead East Coast Dolphins Washing Ashore Rises Seven-Fold

Dead dolphins are washing ashore from New York to Maryland. In Virginia alone, more than 100 have been found so far, which is already more than twice as many as all of 2012 …

By Francesca Trianni, Reuters – “Federal scientists investigating an unusually high number of dead bottlenose dolphins washing up on the East Coast said on Thursday the carcasses are showing up at a rate that is seven times higher than usual.

More than 120 dead animals have been discovered since June from New Jersey to Virginia, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Fisheries Service said.

Federal scientists have declared it an ‘unusual mortality event’ and are investigating the cause, said Maggie Mooney-Seus of NOAA Fisheries.

A number of things can cause dolphins to strand, including harmful algal blooms, infectious viruses, injuries due to ship strikes, pollutants and human-made runoff, NOAA said.

Although the cause has not been determined, early tissue analysis showed that one suspect could be morbillivirus, an infectious pathogen, said Teri Rowles, national marine mammal stranding coordinator for NOAA Fisheries.

Marine stranding response centers are collecting information on the deaths and necropsies are being performed, but it could take several weeks to determine what led to the deaths, the NOAA said.

In this month alone, 28 dolphins were found dead along the shores of the East Coast.” Read more.

Perplexing Spike In Dolphin Deaths Hits Atlantic Coast – “Since the beginning of July, more than 100 dolphins have washed up dead along the U.S. East Coast, from New York to Virginia. No one knows why, or whether the deaths are connected. The number is a noticeable spike in mortality, about seven times the average for the month of July, according to stranding data collected by NOAA’s Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program. ‘It could take several months, if not longer, to determine what could be behind this,’ said Maggie Mooney-Seus, spokeperson for NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center.” Read more.

      Hi Arizona, thank you for your comment. There is no book of “Revelations” by the way, but much of Revelation has already happened and is in the process of happening, today. For your consideration, feel free to read through “Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’” for a detailed explanation.

      I would also like to say a brief word regarding Barack Hussein Obama. As I am sure you would agree, this man would not be President if it were not a part of the will and plan of God that he be elected. Our ways are not God’s ways, and “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). As much as you or I may dislike Obama and his devastating domestic and foreign policies, I believe that we will one day bear witness to the fact that his disastrous leadership, particularly on the world stage, will have served a purpose that only the end will be fully understood. Today we see through a glass darkly (1 Cor 13:12) and cannot always see the forest through the trees, but let us not lose sight of the fact that even evil men can, unbeknownst to them, be used to serve a purpose and a plan that only God sees fully.

      Daniel 2:21, 4:17b, “[The Lord] changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning … the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.”

      In all that is happening today, we must persevere, we must be patient, and in doing so will will not lose hope in knowing that when the world seems to be losing control, God isn’t.
