    Breaking News: Quakes Strike Argentina and China

    6.4 Quake strikes Northern Argentina
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck northern Argentina early on Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

    The quake occurred at 2:07 a.m. local time (5.07 a.m. British time) and was centred 72 miles (116 km) east-southeast of Santiago del Estero, the USGS said.

    There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the quake, which was upgraded from an initial 6.3.

    4.7 Quake hits Northern China
    BEIJING – A moderate earthquake has sent ripples across the north China plain, shaking buildings in Beijing but leaving no reports of damage or injuries.

    The quake that struck at 10:22 a.m. Monday was centered 125 miles east of Beijing. It was listed at magnitude 4.7 by the U.S. Geological Survey and 4.8 by the Beijing Earthquake Bureau.

    At the epicenter in Luan county, operators at several hotels said guests staying on upper floors felt the buildings sway. People in Beijing took to Chinese versions of Twitter to say buildings shuddered.

    An earthquake in the same region in 1976 was one of China’s deadliest. Located near the city of Tangshan, the quake left more than 240,000 dead.

    5.8 Earthquake in D.C. A Sign of Things to Come

    5.8 Earthquake in D.C. A Sign of Things to Come

    Haggai 2:6-7 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come:

    A Magnitude 5.8 earthquake that struck Mineral, Virginia on Tuesday was the largest quake recorded in history for that region of the U.S. The quake was felt along the eastern seaboard from Florida to New York.

    The United States has over 1,400 earthquakes each year and that number is increasing in both frequency and severity.

    Could it be that this larger than normal quake is a sign of things to come as we approach the coming of Jesus for His Church?

  • The Last Days: Where Is The World Headed?

    The Last Days: Where Is The World Headed?

    For many people the 9.0 earthquake in Japan, the ensuing Tsunami, Nuclear Meltdown and spread of radioactive debris across the atmosphere, teamed with the Arab uprising in several countries, has caused a great pause in our questions for tomorrow.

    What is coming next? Where is all this leading? What does the Bible have to say about these events and are they an indication that we are living in the Last Days?

    In the last part of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus began to explain what the conditions of the world would be like in the final days.

    Matthew 24:3-8 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

    The disciples wanted to know when the last days would arrive and what would be the signs of Jesus’ return.

    Jesus said:

    The last days would be characterized by a great time of Deception.
    Many will come and claim to be the Christ.
    There will be many wars and rumors of wars.
    There will be Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes in various places.

    9.0 Quake Hits Japan, Signals Increase In Disasters

    9.0 Quake Hits Japan, Signals Increase In Disasters

    A massive 8.9 Earthquake has struck the east coast of Japan, near the city of Honshu. Reports are still coming in of the damage. Early eye witness accounts report a 33 foot Tsunami has already killed hundreds of people near Honshu as bodies are already being washed up on the shore of this city.

    This Monster earthquake in Japan is 3,000 more powerful than the devastating earthquake that hit San Francisco in 1989.

    The west coast of the United States is waiting for the Tsunami to hit. Estimated times and locations for the Tsunami to strike are as follows:

    Seattle: 11:44 am
    San Francisco: 11:16 am
    Santa Monica: 11:39 am
    New Port Beach: 11:45 am

  • Signs of Jesus Return: Earthquake Rocks Israel

    Signs of Jesus Return: Earthquake Rocks Israel

    The book of Zechariah describes the fact that when Jesus returns to earth at the end of the seven year Tribulation Period, it will be at the mount of Olives just outside Jerusalem.

    Zechariah 14:4 “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.”

    At the moment that Jesus feet touch the soil of the mount of olives, the earth will fracture and split into two pieces moving north and south.

    Scientists have discovered that one of the largest tectonic plate faults on the earth is in this area of the Jordan valley. Many years ago a large hotel had planned to build a resort on the mount of olives. After an extensive study of the site it was discovered that there was a large fracture in the earth running right through the middle of the mount of olives. Plans to build this new resort were discontinued indefinitely.

    On Saturday a moderate earthquake measuring 4.o on the Richter scale shook the northern portion of the Jordan valley causing many Israeli’s who live in that area to panic. It was only a mild earthquake and did little damage, this time. It is for certain that as the day of Jesus return for His church at the Rapture is to happen at any moment now, the early birth pains of the day Zechariah spoke of when the mount of olives will split, is also growing nearer.

    Signs of the Last Days: Historic Weather and Disasters

    Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 — the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

    “It just seemed like it was back-to-back and it came in waves,” said Craig Fugate, who heads the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency. It handled a record number of disasters in 2010.

    “The term `100-year event’ really lost its meaning this year.” And we have ourselves to blame most of the time, scientists and disaster experts say. Even though many catastrophes have the ring of random chance, the hand of man made this a particularly deadly, costly, extreme and weird year for everything from wild weather to earthquakes.

  • A Shift in Earth’s Axis Causes Global Weather Changes

    A Shift in Earth’s Axis Causes Global Weather Changes

    If you listen to Al Gore and the other so called experts on the theory of global warming, you would probrably be convinced that global warming is the cause of earth’s sudden changes in weather patterns. What many people do not know is that something far more important has most likely caused these radical changes in weather.

    In February of 2010, a massive 8.8 Earthquake in Chile was confirmed to have shifted the earth’s axis permanently, according to scientists at NASA. Although the shift in the earth’s axis caused only a 1.26 microsecond loss of each earth day, the cumulative effect of massive earthquakes and Tsunamis such as the one that occurred in Chile, can cause global changes in weather as each progressively occur.

    A very large quake such as the one that occurred in Chile this year, moves massive amounts of rock that changes the distribution of the mass of the planet. As Earth’s mass changes, so also does the shift of the axis, which in turn changes global weather.

    Indonesia Hit Again with Massive 7.7 Earthquake and Tsunami

    Indonesia Hit Again with Massive 7.7 Earthquake and Tsunami

    Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN) — At least 112 people were killed and 502 others were missing after a 7.7-magnitude earthquake struck off Sumatra on Monday and triggered a tsunami, Indonesian officials said Tuesday. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quake generated a “significant” tsunami. Some of the missing may include people who are unaccounted for after fleeing to higher ground, said Henri Dori Satoko, the head of the Mentawai Islands parliament.

    Although communication with remote areas was difficult, some witnesses in West Sumatra reported seeing a wave 6 meters (nearly 20 feet) high. Other reports described the tsunami as being about 3 meters (almost 10 feet) high. Satoko said at least one village with a population of about 200 people was swept away, with only 40 people recovered. Eight to 10 Australians on board a tourist vessel who had been feared missing were reported to be safe, Satoko said. “All foreign tourists are safe.”.

    The numbers of dead and injured were in flux because information was trickling in from remote parts of Indonesia, a country made up of myriad islands. The area believed hardest-hit was the Mentawai Islands, a popular surfing destination. In particular, Pagai Island was thought to have been affected, said Ita Balanda, a program manager for World Vision in Padang.

    Earthquake, Tsunami and Volcanic Eruption Strikes Indonesia

    Earthquake, Tsunami and Volcanic Eruption Strikes Indonesia

    PADANG, Indonesia — Rescuers battled rough seas Tuesday to reach remote Indonesian islands pounded by a 10-foot tsunami that swept away homes, killing at least 113 people. Scores more were missing and information was only beginning to trickle in from the sparsely populated surfing destination, so casualties were expected to rise.

    The fault that ruptured Monday on Sumatra island’s coast also caused the 2004 quake and monster Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries. Though hundreds of disaster officials were unable to get to many of the villages on the Mentawai islands — reachable only by a 12-hour boat ride — they were preparing for the worst. “We have 200 body bags on the way, just in case,” said Mujiharto, who heads the Health Ministry’s crisis center, shortly before announcing a five-fold increase in the death toll.

    Signs on the Earth: Global Changes in Weather

    A “Super Typhoon” with winds over 160 miles per hour struck the northern part of Luzon in the Philippines yesterday. The soil in large parts of the southern hemisphere of the world have been drying for nearly ten years. Marked increases in global tectonic plate shifts causing massive earthquakes around the world have increased by over 500 percent in the last 50 years.

    In Los Angeles California, a new study has shown that an earthquake in Haiti could mean that similar coastal cities such as Los Angeles are at high risk of deadly Tsunami’s or a Mega Tsunami. When geologists studied the magnitude 7 earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, they discovered the increased risk for Los Angeles and other cities such as Kingston Jamaica and Istanbul Turkey.

    An undersea earthquake just off shore in Southern California could trigger a massive underwater landslide, which could in turn cause a massive tsunami to slam into the low lying around Los Angels within just one minute.

    What is a Mega Tsunami?

    What is a Mega Tsunami?

    A mega-tsunami is simply a gigantic wave, one big enough to cross oceans and destroy cities. They can be thousands of feet high moving at supersonic speeds. They can be caused by huge meteors crashing into the ocean, or by massive landslides. No boat or building hit by a mega tsunami could survive. But now scientists believe that we could be sitting on a time bomb, that sooner or later one will destroy New York, Boston and Miami, and that nothing could stop it.

    When was the biggest tsunami?

    The largest tsunami in recorded history was in Lituya Bay, Canada, 1958. An earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale caused 40 million cubic metres of rock to fall into the sea. A wave more than half a kilometre high was created that surged through the bay devastating all in its path. This was not even a mega-tsunami, by these standards it was tiny, but it did show scientists what sort of wave a small landslide could cause. But what would be the effect of a big one?

    Two Powerful Earthquakes Rock Indonesia

    Two Powerful Earthquakes Rock Indonesia

    JAKARTA, Indonesia — Two powerful earthquakes hit waters off eastern Indonesia in rapid succession Thursday, prompting officials to briefly trigger a tsunami warning. The U.S. Geological Survey said a 7.2 magnitude quake off Papua province, centered just 7 miles (12 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor, struck less than a minute after a 6.6 temblor in the same location.

    Several strong aftershocks followed. The quakes rocked the nearby islands of Tual and Dodo at around 2 a.m. local time as people were sleeping, police said, adding there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The region on Indonesia’s easternmost edge is remote and sparsely populated. Located 1,800 miles (2,900 kilometers) from the capital, Jakarta, the epicenter was closer to the northern Australian city of Darwin, which sits some 560 miles (900 kilometers) to the south

    7.0 Earthquake Hits New Guinea

    7.0 Earthquake Hits New Guinea

    PORT MORESBY — A major 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck a remote mountainous region of the Pacific nation of Papua New Guinea on Thursday, seismologists said, causing panic but no initial damage or injuries. The quake hit a sparsely populated area of the island of New Britain at 8:01 am (2201 GMT Wednesday) at a depth of 54 kilometres, the US Geological Survey (USGS) and the Papua New Guinea Earthquake Office said. “We are not aware of any damage at this point, but it was pretty strongly felt in the town of Kimbe and on other parts of the island, people are really shaken up,” seismologist Lawrence Anton of the PNG Earthquake Office told AFP. The quake hit about 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the centre of a 7.3-magnitude earthquake that hit the region in July. The epicentre of the latest quake was 145 kilometres east of Kandrian, on New Britain, and 570 kilometres east of Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea.

    6.7 Earthquake Rocks Alaska

    6.7 Earthquake Rocks Alaska

    A series of strong aftershocks in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands region Sunday followed a powerful earthquake that shook the remote area, but officials said there were no immediate reports of damage or injury. There also was no threat of a tsunami from any of the quakes. The U.S. Geological Survey said the initial 6.7-magnitude temblor struck at 9:56 p.m. Saturday and was centered in the Bering Sea about 155 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor. The quake hit about 21 miles beneath the seabed. USGS geophysicist Rafael Abreu said there were at least 11 aftershocks, including one occurring at 11:48 a.m. Sunday that had a 5.8 preliminary magnitude. He said that magnitude was still under review and could change.

    Inactive Fault May Trigger Giant California Quake

    Inactive Fault May Trigger Giant California Quake

    For a half-dozen years those who oversee the 57-year-old Isabella flood control dam above Bakersfield, as well as California Institute of Technology geologists, have been studying the fault closely. “It came as a surprise to see that a long-inactive fault can produce significant quakes,” said geologist Elisabeth Nadin of Caltech, who has hiked the sparsely populated rugged terrain and mapped where evidence showed the fault ruptured violently at least 3,300 years ago. Geologists working for the Army Corps of Engineers have also studied the fault’s potential for rupturing and are surveying the dam to determine whether it needs strengthening against future large quakes. The fault emerged some 86 million years ago when the immense granite mass of the Sierra was uplifting, said Nadin, who has found the evidence of past violence in the rocks around it.

    Earthquake Moved California City 31 Inches

    Earthquake Moved California City 31 Inches

    The powerful earthquake that struck Baja California and the southwestern United States in April actually moved an entire California border city, NASA radar images show. Calexico, Calif., near the U.S.-Mexico border, moved as much as 2 1/2 feet (80 cm) south and down into the ground due to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake on April 4. Called the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake, the temblor was centered 32 miles (52 km) south-southeast ofCalexico and was the strongest quake to strike the region in nearly 120 years. Two people were killed and hundreds more were injured.

    6.1 Quake Jolts Japan

    6.1 Quake Jolts Japan

    A second large earthquake was reported today in Tokyo Japan. Similar to the 7.5 quake that shook the Indian Islands, it is rare for two large quakes to happen at the same time. Jesus said when we see an increase in the severity and frequency of earthquakes, that we know His return is near. Luke 21:11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. Many hundreds of small quakes happen everyday around the world, but there is a marked increase in the number of severe quakes over 6 magnatude that have increased by more than 500 percent in the past 10 years. Watching for these types of events and realizing that the increase of natural dissasters readies us for Jesus return and causes our hearts to be reminded we are not long for this earth.

    7.5 Earthquake Shakes Indian Islands

    7.5 Earthquake Shakes Indian Islands

    A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck under the Indian Ocean near India’s Nicobar and Andaman Islands early Sunday, triggering panic on the archipelago and an initial regional tsunami alert. The quake shook people from their sleep and briefly disrupted power supplies, causing alarm on a string of islands which were hit by the massive 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, but there were no reports of casualties or damage. Tremors were also felt on mainland India, more than 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) from the epicentre near India’s most easterly territories.
    “It was very difficult to leave our home because the electricity went off and the entire Port Blair plunged into darkness during the earthquake,” tour operator M. Vinod said from the capital of the Andamans. The quake struck at 1:26 am (1926 GMT Saturday) at a depth of 35 kilometres (22 miles), with the epicentre around 160 kilometres west of the Nicobar Islands.
