Prophecy Sign: Earthquakes/Volcanoes in diverse places
The bible warns that earth changes of such magnitude will occur during the Tribulation that mountains will be flattened and islands will disappear. Seems Hollywood may have some knowledge of this as they have yet another apocalyptic movie ready to grace the theaters with this theme in mind.
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
How Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga will plunge Europe into the dark ages
It’s a question of when not if! The eruption of Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga will have sweeping repercussions for the whole of Europe, and has been pencilled in as an "outrageous" risk for 2015 by Saxo Bank. It is on our door step and is a constant threat but for some reason it is almost never mentioned in the media. Yet again, an Icelandic volcano threatens to fracture the political landscape of Europe. An explosion of Bardarbunga could wreak agricultural havoc, shifting weather patterns, and leading to a doubling of grain prices. As the volcano Bardarbunga has been “quietly” erupting for more than 100 days, it could now enter “a far more intense eruption phase”, said John Hardy, head of FX strategy at Saxo Bank. This would result in “potentially climate altering consequences for the next year or more”, he added. The forecast is one of a series of “outrageous predictions” made by Denmark’s Saxo Bank for 2015, events that could represent under-appreciated risks over the next 12 months. This event would be far larger than the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull, which the International Air Transport Association said cost more than 1 billion euro's

Fault zone off NW coast silent: 'It's storing energy'
The fault off the Northwest coast where geologists predict a massive quake will someday shake is eerily quiet, scientists say. A University of Oregon seismic expert said that could signal problems down the road. Geophysics professor Doug Toomey said he has been watching this for many years, and recent measurements confirm it: The dangerous Cascadia Subduction Zone is in the middle of a seismic snooze. The zone lies underwater between 40 to 80 miles offshore of the Northwest coastline. Researchers say Cascadia should be grinding and slipping every so often as one tectonic plate dives under another. “So if you have a magnitude 8 or a 9, there should be 7s, 6s and 5s going down that scale,” said Toomey. Toomey said this puzzling trend means the dangerous fault is most likely stuck - or "fully-locked," to use the correct scientific lingo.
