Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah 13:13 NIV
earthquake a prelude to something bigger?
Last Monday, a 6.8-magnitude earthquake rattled northern
California, followed by 24
aftershocks. One week later, a much smaller tremor, with a magnitude of 4.4,
shook Los Angeles. That
quake was centered about six miles north-northwest of ,
reports Reuters. Some aftershocks followed, with the biggest one having a
magnitude of 2.7. Are these quakes a precursor to a big one? Well, there is “always
the possibility that it’s a foreshock,” Robert Graves, seismologist with US
Geological Survey, told LA Times. He added, "We’re continuing to analyze
the data, but at this point, this seems to be what I would call a rather
typical earthquake." Westwood, Calif.
