Is anyone else as freaked out by this as I am right now? I feel like I'm watching a movie or reading a Sci-Fi novel. WTF is going on??

This sort of thing literally does happen all the time, especially in periods of such extreme weather as we have been having (both great cold in the north and considerable heat in the south). There are a series of logical causes to each incident, mostly separate and discrete (the great cold and shocks to nesting colonies from New Year fireworks have been related in a couple of cases), and it is just that the media has been reporting on them as something inexplicable and unprecedented.

In short, and I say this as a media professional of 20 years standing, we're shit at science in journalism ;-)
