In Japan, there’s a scary sight on a port in Isumi City of Chiba Prefecture. The ground has been covered by 200 tons of dead, rotting sardines and the ocean has been stained red with their blood. It looks like a beach from hell.
The scariest thing is that no one is sure why this is happening, some are saying it’s a lack of oxygen, others are pointing to it as an omen for another disaster.
