The terrifying ‘ice tsunami’ driven by 100mph winds that buried alive an ENTIRE herd of mysterious musk oxen in Alaska

The terrifying ‘ice tsunami’ driven by 100mph winds that buried alive an ENTIRE herd of mysterious musk oxen in Alaska

A savage ‘ice tsunami’ in Alaska buried alive a whole herd of musk oxen leaving all but one ‘wholly submerged’, researchers have found.

 

With blizzards raging at between 60 to 100mph (128 – 160km/h), the pack of more than 50 were buried alive, leaving only a few tufts of hair poking out.

 

During the violent storm, these hardy creatures – whose ancestors managed to survive the last Ice Age – descended to the water but were quickly trapped and frozen by the rising tide.

Japan lifts tsunami advisories issued after 7.4 magnitude earthquake

Japan lifts tsunami advisories issued after 7.4 magnitude earthquake

Japan has lifted the tsunami advisories issued after a 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit its eastern coast.

The quake struck near Fukushima at about 06:00 local time (21:00 GMT Monday), triggering initial warnings of 3m (9.8ft) high waves. The waves which eventually hit the coast were much smaller.

Thousands were asked to evacuate the area and minor injuries were reported.

An earthquake and tsunami struck the area in 2011 killing 18,000 people.

That quake, one of the most powerful ever recorded, also caused a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, where a massive clean-up operation is still going on.

Officials have said there is no sign of damage to the plant this time.

The US Geological Survey initially put the magnitude at 7.3 but later downgraded this to 6.9, lower than the number given by the Japanese authorities.

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said in its latest update that no tsunami damage is expected, although there may be slight changes to the sea level.
