'Big One' is due, quake experts say

Prophecy Sign:  Massive earthquakes during the Tribulation


Can you image a global earthquake so massive as to flatten the mountains and sink the islands of the oceans?  Unimaginable as it seems, the bible warns of such a cataclysmic event occurring during the Tribulation period.  There are many regions of the planet now either showing ominous signs of impending major seismic activity, or are long due for the proverbial 'big one'.

Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. Revelation 16:18 & 20 NIV

'Big One' is due, quake experts say
Sitting on a major fault line, Oregon is "like an eight-and-a-half-month pregnancy, due any time now" for a major earthquake, a geologist with the Oregon Office of Emergency Management told an overflow crowd Friday in Medford. "We're in the zone, and we'd darn well better get ourselves ready for it," said Althea Rizzo, geology hazard coordinator for OEM. "A lot of you may have moved here from California to escape them, but the fact is, Oregon is earthquake country." About half the hands went up when Rizzo asked how many had been through a California earthquake. Rizzo said there's a 37 percent chance the Big One will happen in the next 50 years. A major earthquake would cripple transportation on Interstate 5 as bridges and overpasses collapse from two to four minutes of ground shaking, possible very severe, with stressful aftershocks for weeks.

Triple swarm of earthquakes shakes Yellowstone
Until recently, Bob Smith had never witnessed two simultaneous earthquake swarms in his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity in and around the Yellowstone Caldera. Now, Smith, a University of Utah geophysics professor, has seen three swarms at once. "It's very remarkable," Smith said. "How does one swarm relate to another? Can one swarm trigger another and vice versa?" Because concurrent swarms have never been detected in the past, the answers aren't in yet, Smith said. The geophysicist said he "wouldn't doubt" if at least two of the events were related. Temblors from the three quake swarms mostly hit in three areas: Lewis Lake, the Lower Geyser Basin and the northwest part of Norris Geyser Basin. The largest earthquake shook the ground near Old Faithful Geyser on Sept. 15.
