A Million Dead Sardines

In Redondo Beach, California what appeared to be an environmental disaster may turn out to be nothing more than a natural occurrence according to Andrew Hughan, spokesman for the California Department of Fish and Game, saying "It looks like Armageddon, but it really isn't. It's a sad, unfortunate event."

It's believed ocean storm conditions forced large schools of sardines inshore where overcrowding depleted oxygen levels causing the small silvery fish to die.
