Is the US ready for the 'Big One'?

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and Volcanic activity

Nobody is ready for the 'big one' and never will be, no matter the preparations that have taken place. When a big one, (9.0 or greater), hits it will completely destroy cities and cause tidal waves of immense proportions, (just ask Japan).  And of course, no one can prepare for a major volcanic eruption.  This will be the fate of those unfortunate enough to be around during the terrible time of the Tribulation.  That's why its necessary now to be on the right side of your relationship with Jesus Christ, who has promised to remove his Bride, the Church from the coming Wrath of God Almighty.

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

Is the US ready for the 'Big One'?
The threat of a massive earthquake and tsunami have been looming over the Pacific Northwest for decades. Now, experts are taking it seriously. This summer the Federal Emergency Management Administration (Fema) is conducting a large-scale drill to see if it's ready for worst. The test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami that could create waves more than 50ft-high.  Researchers say such an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is overdue a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced. The last time the region faced a 'Big One' was in 1906 when San Andres unleashed an earthquake that killed roughly 3,000 people. This summer's drill, dubbed Cascadia Rising, will test to see how local and state emergency responders, Fema, and a number of military groups work together. The simulation will run from June 7-10, 2016, and will use past events to help plan the future response. 

Major Eruption Imminent? Earthquake Swarms Reported At Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier And Mt. St. Helens
Is an eruption of one or more of the major volcanoes in the northwest United States imminent?  In recent days, very large earthquake swarms have been reported at Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens.  It is certainly not unusual for each of these volcanoes to experience earthquake swarms from time to time, but right now we are seeing this happen at all three volcanoes simultaneously, and this comes at a time when seismic activity along the Ring of Fire is on the rise all over the planet.
