An Utterly Terrifying Risk Assessment of California's Next Big Earthquake

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes/Volcanoes in diverse places

All across the Pacific Ring of Fire seismic and volcanic activity is on the rise.  The West Coast of North America will be no exception and it can be expected that great earthquakes and volcanic explosions will rock the region during the coming Tribulation period.

"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. Haggai 2:6 NIV

An Utterly Terrifying Risk Assessment of California's Next Big Earthquake
"When we have the San Andreas earthquake, that earth fault will probably be about 20 to 30 times larger than the fault that produced the Northridge earthquake," she said. (That quake killed 57 people and caused roughly $20 billion in damages.) But San Andreas is a much longer fault, and that means it can release a ton more energy. “And then instead of having a half-million people receiving a strong shaking, we're going to have 10 million people receiving the same level of strong shaking." An event of this magnitude will likely trigger a catastrophic situation for emergency responders. "When you have that many fires starting—because the fires are proportional to the number of houses receiving strong shaking—we run out of fire engines," Jones said. "We know we will not have enough fire engines to handle the fires. And mutual aid is going to have to cross that broken San Andreas to get to us.

Where a Volcano Eruption Like Japan's Mount Ontake Is Mostly Likely in the US
Could a deadly volcano eruption like Mount Ontake's in Japan happen here in the United States? It's possible, U.S. Geological Survey scientist John Ewert told ABC News today. Luckily, most of the active volcanoes in America aren't near homes, businesses or schools, he said. "When you look at the Cascade Volcanoes, which are most like Ontake, you find that these are all on federally managed lands, national parks or national forests and wilderness areas. We don't have much in the way of built environment nearby. An exception to that might be a place like Mt. Hood, which has ski lodges on the side, but these are not up by the crater."
But he suspects the most dangerous volcano in the country is Mount Rainier in Washington, based on the number of people in the surrounding area, "areas we know could be hazardous when that volcano is coming active," Ewert said.
