Prophecy Sign: Increasing Earthquake and volcanic activity
Massive earthquakes and powerful volcanic eruptions are one of the major judgments to occur during the coming Tribulation period.
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. Revelation NIV
Mega-quake: The 'big one' could happen soon, but probably not where you think
If you believe what you see in the movies, you probably think that "the big one" — a mega-earthquake in a major North American city — will inevitably hit Los Angeles or San Francisco along the San Andreas Fault. But while these cities are certainly prone to devastating earthquakes, many experts now suspect that the site of the next really, really big one will be somewhere else entirely. It may happen in the
home to coffee lovers, hipsters, grunge rock and rain. And also, possibly, the
most ruinous, destructive earthquake to hit North America
in modern times, reports The New Yorker. The characterization might seem
unlikely to current residents — the Pacific Northwest rarely experiences large
tremors — but the region sits at the crux of a major fault line called the
Cascadia subduction zone, a tectonic plate boundary that stretches from
northern Vancouver Island to northern California.
