14 earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma since Friday

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes in diverse places

Swarms of earthquakes in the centre of America and in Northern Chile have geologists concerned. While the earthquakes in Oklahoma might be the result of oil exploration, there is no guarantee of that. There are plenty of fault lines running across America that could be the location for future large disastrous earthquakes. And then there is Chile where geologists are very concerned that the 300+ quakes in recent days is the harbinger of something far larger.  In fact Chile has been the epicentre of some of the largest earthquakes in recorded history.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

14 earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma since Friday
The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded 14 earthquakes in Oklahoma since about 9:30 p.m. Friday, the largest being a magnitude 4.0. The 4.0 magnitude quake was recorded at 10:05 p.m. Friday about seven miles south of Langston. Three other quakes of magnitude 2.9, 3.0 and 3.3 were recorded Saturday afternoon in the Medford area. The other quakes ranged from magnitude 2.4 to 2.9.  No injuries or damage are reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans. Scientists are studying why earthquake activity has increased in Oklahoma and whether it is connected to wastewater disposal related to oil and gas production -- but have found no answers.

Mysterious booms worry Osceola, Polk residents
It’s the bump in the night that has Osceola County residents asking each other “Did you hear that?” We’ve gotten email after email, not to mention Facebook posts, from people who say they're hearing a boom around the same time every night. Not even the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office has an answer. It was like a ‘BOOM!’ Then, the windows kinda shook,” said Kissimmee resident Daryl Mercado. “A loud BOOM sound…like they throwed a bomb,” explained young AJ. His mother, Lori Chezem, said, “Loud booms. It reminds me of when the space shuttle used to come in -- the Sonic Boom.” Kids and adults alike are talking about it. But what exactly is it?

Chileans worry over string of 300 quakes in north
More than 300 earthquakes have shaken Chile's far-northern coast the past week, keeping people on edge as scientists say there is no way to tell if the unusual string of tremors is a harbinger of an impending disaster. The unnerving activity began with a strong magnitude-6.7 quake on March 16 that caused more than 100,000 people to briefly evacuate low-lying areas, although no tsunami materialized and there was little physical damage from the shaking. But the land has not settled down. More than a dozen perceptible quakes were felt in the city of Iquique just on Monday.
