Odd News - Annual Salamandar Migration?

I just read on the website of my local newspaper that a road nearby would be closed tonight due to the "anticipation of the annual salamander migration". This is definitely the first time I've heard of such a thing.

East Brunswick Environmental Commission Vice Chairman Richard Wolfert said the drop in temperature to below 40 degrees Tuesday night and about a half-inch of rain today are creating ideal conditions for the migration.

Wolfert said that with the proper weather, it's also possible that a number of frogs will be crossing the street to the vernal pools as well.

Here's here to read the full article.
