North Dakotan evidence for Chicxulub impact

KP (or T) Impact Evidence in North Dakota

An informant has brought THIS to my attention.

The article describes what must have happened shortly after the impact event. 

Fossilised fish piled one atop the other as they were flung ashore.

When the asteroid impacted, billions of tons of molten rock was flung into the air. And some of it landed at Tanis, the site in North Dakota. Some is found in the gills of fish, some in amber - resin at the time.

The site shows signs of water inundation, possibly caused by a tsunami, more probably by a seiche - water displaced by a massive seismic shockwave.

I suspect we will be hearing more of this site in the future.
