Gabz Laurel was just having her usual break when she and her officemates saw something unusual and unexpected when they looked out the window. Hundreds of bees were swarming in the Ortigas skyline!
She did not waste time and took a video of the unusual sight, and uploaded it on social media. There it was met with shock and fear from netizens quickly connecting it to the bad omen of oarfish and other weird sea creatures washing up on shore before the strong earthquake hit Surigao City.
The shares it gained from social media mostly told warnings of another impending disaster to hit the country again.
Some netizens claim it is one of the signs the world is ending, while some say it could be that the bees are sensing a change in the environment or a coming calamity.
According to Wikipedia, swarming is a natural process by which a new colony is being formed. The swarm can contain thousands to ten thousands of bees usually within a two or three week period depending on the location. Furthermore, they are known to stay in an area for a few hours.
In contrary to bad luck sign netizens fear about the incident, a swarm of bees is actually considered a good omen of prosperity in some Western cultures.
