Coming Soon? This Is What Would Happen If A 9.0 Earthquake Hit The Cascadia Subduction Zone…

Prophecy Sign:  Great earthquakes in diverse places



A couple major fault lines off the coast of North America should have every West Coaster just a little bit worried.  Should one or both of these faults finally give way under the immense pressure now building, it will likely cause both an earthquake and accompanying tsunami on biblical proportions.

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

Coming Soon? This Is What Would Happen If A 9.0 Earthquake Hit The Cascadia Subduction Zone…
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you have probably already heard of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.  It is where the Juan de Fuca plate meets the North American plate, and it stretches approximately 700 miles from northern Vancouver Island all the way down to northern California.  This subduction zone is capable of producing far more powerful earthquakes than the much more famous San Andreas fault in southern California, and scientists tell us that it is only a matter of time before another continent-killing earthquake hits this area.  And when it does hit, it will be far worse than any other natural disaster that the United States has ever seen up to this point. According to CNN, “the largest earthquake in the continental United States” took place along the Cascadia Subduction Zone on January 26th, 1700, and one of the reasons why it is considered to be far more dangerous than other west coast faults is because it is also capable of producing massive tsunamis…

Earthquake possible along new fault zone near Victoria B.C. say scientists
Seismologists in B.C. have confirmed the existence of a fault only five kilometres south of Victoria, giving South Coast residents one more thing to worry about when preparing for earthquakes. It’s called the Devil’s Mountain Fault Zone and it’s actually made up of a series of faults that run from Washington state to Victoria, running much closer to the B.C. capital than the point where the Juan de Fuca plate meets the North American plate, which scientists have predicted for decades will result in the ‘Big One.’
“This fault is about 125 km long from Washington to Victoria, which would be an earthquake, potentially, in the magnitude of 6.5, 7 perhaps even 7.5 if the entire fault zone ruptured at once,” said John Cassidy, head of Earthquake Seismology at Natural Resources Canada.
