A historic earthquake with monstrous destruction may be in the works near Mansfield, Ohio as residents and local TV report strange lights emanating from the ground.  While the local TV Weatherman claims all is well – saying it’s only ice crystals in the air – this phenomenon has been seen before in many places just days or hours before a massive earthquake. (This story is NOT intended to frighten or panic anyone, but it can’t hurt to make some emergency preparations with food, water, medications, flashlights, batteries, radios, blankets and such just in case.)   Rare flashes of light that are sometimes seen around earthquakes are not  caused by birds, or planes, or UFOs
—all of which had been previously used to explain the phenomena known as earthquake lights. Instead, the lights are caused by electrical properties of certain rocks in specific settings, report scientists in a new paper. Sometimes called earthquake lightning, the lights can take “many different shapes, forms, and colors,” says study coauthor Friedemann Freund, an adjunct professor of physics at San Jose State University and a senior researcher at NASA’s Ames Research Center. Freund says common forms of earthquake lights include bluish flames that appear to come out of the ground at ankle height; orbs of light called ball lightning that float in the air for tens of seconds or even minutes; and quick flashes of bright light that resemble regular lightning strikes, except they come out of the ground instead of the sky and can stretch up to 650 feet (200 meters).

    There’s a hill behind my house. This one guy told me it was a volcano!!!! OMG can u believe it! Oh I forgot to post a pic sorry. Apparently all u need is a random pic to get credibility on here

  4. missy says:

    I saw lights very similar to these over a factory off of st rt 33 by Marysville and it looked to me it was coming from lights on the ground I think its bs also

  5. Michael says:

    This is so stupid to come up with a prediction like this to scare people living in the area. These lights are called Ice Pillars. They are caused by ice crystals in the air when the temps are usually sub zero. They happened to city areas all over central and western Ohio. They happened in my city also. There isn’t even a earthquake fault line worth mentioning in the Mansfield area.

  6. lynn watkins says:

    ohio no but one day in New York It is on a major fault line

  7. Hate to tell everyone, but this is an atmospheric thing. Not the precursor of an earthquake. It was explained on the weather channel as well as several other weather related sites.

  8. Sherry says:

    Melissa…It is a word. Do your studies of knowledge. Irregardless is a word commonly used in place of regardless or irrespective, which has caused controversy since the early twentieth century, though the word appeared in print as early as 1795.[1] Most dictionaries[citation needed] list it as “nonstandard” or “incorrect”.

  10. Chris says:

    Too many gullible people. I’ve seen this plenty of times. It’s definitely a cool visual, but it’s just lights reflecting off of particles or crystals in the air. Get a grip people…

  11. Chad says:

    This is the type of babbling nonsense that serves no purpose except to try and push people into making sure that they live in fear of the end of the world.

    These were not “earthquake lights”. These were light pillars. How do I know? Because I LIVE IN MANSFIELD OHIO. I’m from here. I was out, and about that night. I tracked it down. It was any sort of uncovered light source, reflecting off the ice crystals that hung in the air. I traveled from SR 39 on the North end of town, all the way to my house near the Hospital. You could see them from Car Lots, Schools, Billboards, businesses, Parking Lot lights, Driveway Lights, and even a few city street lights.

    Before you try and start panic, get your facts straight. Don’t jump on the bandwagon of OH MY GOD IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD!

    It’s not. It’s not even close.

    And if you are a Christian, you of all people should know, that your bible’s fortold end of the world, is said to be shrouded in mystery. No man, is said to be able to divine when it will happen. Like a thief in the night, or some other such prose, depending on your translation / version of your choosing.

    Let’s be real here. The last “large” earthquake to hit Ohio was a 5.4 in 1937, near Youngstown Ohio. A far cry from Mansfield. The closest fault line to Mansfield is Approximately 70 miles to the west, meaning….. MANSFIELD WOULD NOT BE THE EPICENTER OF SUCH A QUAKE.

    But hey, let’s just engage in a little fear mongering, and distorting of the facts, because there was something that science can explain that happened.

  12. Hope says:

    Since when did naturally occurring light pillars mean an upcoming earthquake? Do the snow rollers we’ve been seeing also mean doom? …or just gusty winds after an Alberta Clipper.?

  13. Loretta Castor says:

    Cardington Ohio had one in the 80s

  14. smfed says:

    I’m not sure about believing in the light situation but Ohio does sit on a major fault line. Which means some day there will be a horrific earthquake its just when we don’t know.

  15. jerry myers says:

    We dont see any team’s of earthquake people around here shouldn’t someone be warning us door to door news paper somthing we should be getting reafy for now not when it hits it called help us out people

    • Kim says:

      This story is false! And there are no teams of people coming to yr door to warn u of an earthquake! They are the most unpredictable phenomenon ever! There are no warning signs when it comes to earthquakes. They just happen! I would know, lived in Cali long enough to know that much about earthquakes!

  16. tmoney says:

    I agree.. the beautiful Mansfield mountains outside of Shelby were formed januANY 26th 2014. Where do I get some oceanfront property here also?

  17. Tim Taylor says:

    The author of this article can’t even get their facts correct. Lightning originates from the clouds AND the ground. The VISIBLE flash we see is the part that comes from the ground. This is EVERY lightning strike. Here are two sources:

    • Scott Allman says:

      true, all voltage flows negative to positive. i have seen lightning from an airplane. ground up. happens so fast the illusion of lightning coming down is just that, illusion

    • Pam says:

      having witnessed the lights NOT coming from the ground but lights the facts in this article are way off base —

  18. sleicht1 says:

    I saw those at my house in Pa. A few nights ago. 2 lights shinning up in the air. Looked like a bright light shinning up in the sky.

  19. Jay says:

    Well we are on a fault line system honestly. My geology teacher talked ab this in class.

    • Pam says:

      The lights did not come from the ground

    • Kim says:

      There are a few fault lines in ohio. But they are dormant, for now anyhow.

      • CJ says:

        Actually the New Madrid fault line that is in the southern part of Ohio is still considered active with small seismic activity occurring several times a year. There are also active epicenters in the Northern region. I’ve felt activity once here in Ohio (very small) that originated from the Cleveland area. Was first time I’d ever felt a tremor.

  21. ken says:

    Yins want some kool-aid?

  22. Rich says:

    Ice crystals I do believe. I have seen the very same lights for my self 30 years ago near Mansfield and yet no earthquake!

    • Linda says:

      Exactly right! We get them ALL the time up here in Central Alberta (Canada)…and no earthquakes for us. I’ve seen them every winter for YEARS

  23. paul says:

    it’s called a lens filter

    • CJ says:

      Not a lens filter. My kids and I all went out to see them…they were very beautiful but we had no idea what they were so drove towards one to see what it was. The one we went to was coming off a single solitary street lamp and disappeared from your view as soon as you approached the light source. Moved away and you saw it again. Nothing more than trick of light produced by ice crystals in the air. Blog writer really should consider doing some actual research before posting stuff to scare people about these simple weather illusions.

  25. Audrey says:

    This can’t be true! I saw some of these beams in the sky in marysville ohio, i hunted them down and they were all coming from big spot lights or security lights at businesses. They lit the sky up because of all the light snow in the air. They were all coming from man made lights, not the ground.

  26. Jenn says:

    Our lights in Mansfield, did not look like earthquake lights.

  27. RYFYRMAN91 says:

    There’s no such word as irregardless. Look it up.

  28. Andy Kennedy says:

    dakwolf55 irregardless is not a real word. smh.

  29. You should be ashamed fire even paying this nonsense. These are”light pillars”, which are a common winter occurrence. They occur during “winter fog” and are a result of the way suspended ice crystals refract the light. Earthquake lights are a separate phenomenon and don’t even occur with the tire if rock strata that’s underneath this area. Before scaring people, try educating yourself first. You can observe these light pillars nightly during frigid weather at Niagara falls when the fine falls must freezes into suspended ice crystals.

    • jayrice says:

      exactly right…..i seen the lights and walked outside and it was just the pole lights from peoples houses.

  30. Blaize Edwards says:

    These lights are called light pillars. Sorry to burst your end times bubble.

  31. Sven says:

    Earthquake lights? What a load of BS. It’s ice crystals in the cold air reflecting lights from the city.

  32. Debbie says:

    I Googled HAARP rings and projections and no images were found. No choice but to ignore that comment. Doesn’t look like the earthquake lights I could find either. I did find several relevant images when I search Ice Crystals and light! Weather Man was telling the truth!

  33. Tristin says:

    I just saw something like this recently on a TV show. It was just showing natural amazing photos in the United States, and it showed this exact same thing (and they mentioned that they are known to be in Ohio.) Although, it never mentioned anything about earthquakes. I don’t think it has anything to do with earthquakes. Just enjoy it’s natural wonder! People like to turn things into something it’s not instead of just appreciating the beautiful things God created that we don’t always quite understand.

  34. Gabriel says:

    This is a perfect example of fear mongering. There is a phenomenon called light pillars, and there is a phenomenon called earthquake lightening, but they are in no way related. Websites like this prey on the naïveté of their readers. Pathetic!

    • Gabriel says:

      Furthermore, the lights in the picture from Mansfield aren’t “emanating from the ground”. They are street lights whose light beams are refracting oddly due to the atmospheric conditions. Is there no investigation or honesty behind what this site spews as truth?

      • CJ says:

        Here’s an amazing pic from our area that night as well as the graphic that explains how it happens.


        From the weather man who reported on them:
        I have to tell you I had never heard of “light pillars” until last night. They are more typical of cold weather climates like Minnesota or North Dakota. So I did some research and tried to explain what so many of you were seeing. I’ve got a much clearer picture to share with you today of how spectacular these light pillars can be and just how they form.

        Light pillars appear when artificial light (shown in diagram below) or natural light bounces off the facets of flat ice crystals wafting relatively close to the ground.

        When the light source is close to the ground, the light pillar appears above the floating crystals. When the light comes from the sun or moon, the light pillar can appear beneath them, too, as the light refracts through the crystals.

  35. Sharon says:


  36. Photographer56 says:

    That’s lights from the city, not from earthquakes. It’s the camera, although earthquake lights are a real thing.

  37. Irene C says:

    Not sure how accurate this information is, but I’m praying they’re wrong. I live here.

  38. Miryah says:

    I pulled up weather radar for around the time when these images of lights were taken. There were unmistakable HAARP rings directly over Mansfield, OH. This is a phenomenon I have been watching for years. There were also HAARP rings on radar one day before the massive earthquake in Haiti. These lights even look like the projections emitted from the HAARP machine when it is powered up.

  39. hairball says:

    hmmm mountains in Mansfield …LOL

    thanks, god job

  41. dakwolf55 says:

    Reblogged this on Dak's Bays and commented:
    While we find the likelihood of a major earthquake and/or other geological events to be remote, we have heard of the so called ‘earthquake lights’ before and feel that their relation to earthquakes to be intriguing.

    With that all said, and irregardless of your personal views on the subject,

    We strongly suggest a thorough review of your emergency preparations with an eye to earthquake and post-earthquake survival. Water and shelter (as sheltering in place may not be a viable option, requiring you to relocate anywhere from a few hundred yards to several hundred miles.) will be your primary concerns, plan appropriately.

      “IRRegardless”. Not a word. Regardless will do just fine.
      Stay safe Ohio!!

        Irregardless IS a word. Google it.
