20,000 earthquakes in one month

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and volcanoes in diverse places


In this past week alone there has been several major earthquakes along the Pacific Ring of Fire, with earthquakes rumbling to life.  Can you imagine a time when the earth will begin to literally tear itself apart?  Perhaps not, but prophecy warns of just that during the latter half of the Tribulation.

People will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. Isaiah 2:19 NIV

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

20,000 earthquakes in one month
Tuesday marks one month since a record wave of seismic activity started at and around the volcano of Bardarbunga. At least 20,000 earthquakes struck the area in that period, according to estimates from the Icelandic Met Office. 186 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0-3.9 were detected. 43 quakes were of magnitude 4.0-4.9, most of them at Bardarbunga's caldera. A total of 23 earthquakes were detected of magnitude 5.0 or greater, all at Bardarbunga. The largest earthquake, a magnitude 5.7, struck on 26 August. That's the largest earthquake in Iceland since a M6.3 struck east of Reykjavík in 2008.
Three scenarios of future development are still considered most likely. Firstly, that the subsidence of Bardarbunga's caldera will stop and the Holuhraun eruption slowly fades out.
Secondly, the subsidence could continue, along with the eruption in Holuhraun. Another eruption could start, possibly under glacier. In this scenario, the eruption(s) could last for a longer time, with lava volume possibly measured in cubic kilometres. Should a subglacial eruption occur, explosive action and glacial floods should be expected.
The third scenario is an eruption within the Bardarbunga caldera. Scientists say such an eruption could melt large volumes of ice, causing a powerful glacial flood. Another possibility is that the water would not immediately escape the caldera, because of the volcano's previous subsidence. That meltwater would later produce a large flood. When the eruption would reach through the glacial ice above, explosive eruption with ashfall would be expected.

Fukushima, Japan Rocked By Two Earthquakes in One Hour; Epicenter Near Nuclear Plants
A pair of moderate earthquakes struck just off the coast of Japan's Fukushima Prefecture Wednesday, close to the nuclear power plants crippled by the March 2011 tsunami. There were no early reports of damage, injuries, or new problems at the nuclear plants. The Japan Meteorological Agency says the first earthquake struck at 9:45 p.m. JST (8:45 a.m. EDT in the U.S.) and registered a magnitude of 5.0. The second quake, a slightly stronger magnitude-5.2 tremor, struck 46 minutes later. Both were centered just off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture, where the Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushimi Daini reactors were severely damaged in the March 11, 2011 tsunami that followed a magnitude-9.0 quake farther offshore. The damage spawned the worst crisis at a nuclear power plant since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, and prompted Japan to shut down most of its nuclear power plants.
