As the flood waters recede after Hurricane Ike battered Orange, Texas, thousands of fish have been marooned on drying pools beside streets on September 15, 2008.
As if calling for help, some fish, in apocalyptic horror, were stuck on fences and died with their mouths and eyes open. This can be similar to the “cadaveric spasms” seen in humans prior to a stressful death.
Destruction in Texas is substantial. Help and rehabilitation are on-going for people who suffered the catastrophic effects of the wicked weather. As of this time, at least 20 are known to have died from the hurricane.(Photo Credits: AP/Eric Gay)
