BIG ONE COMING? Scientists say 9.3magnitude quake possible as California KEEPS rumbling

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing earthquake and volcanic activity

A frightening scenario has been posited by a leading seismologist, (article below), who has suggested that a major, (9.0), earthquake in California would likely trigger a series of similar sized quakes along the west coast.  Bible prophecy warns that the entire globe will be shaken during the coming wrath of God. 

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

BIG ONE COMING? Scientists say 9.3magnitude quake possible as California KEEPS rumbling
A devastating 9.3 magnitude earthquake powerful enough to unleash a tsunami could strike the west coast of America after a series of tremors on a major fault line. Emergency services are already preparing for how to deal with a terrible off-shore earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, off the west coast of America near California. They were just completing their four-day major emergency test run when a 5.2 magnitude quake hit Borrego Springs, San Diego County, in California on Friday. The mid-sized earthquake caused more than 200 aftershocks – some more than three on the richter scale - and could be felt from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border. Egill Hauksson, a research professor of geophysics at Caltech, said of the 5.2 quake: "It was the biggest one for a while.”

California’s ‘Big One’ could trigger super cycle of destructive quakes – study
A major earthquake – the Big One – is statistically almost certain in California in the coming decades, and there is even worse news below the ground: it is likely to be followed by a series of similar-sized temblors, according to a leading seismologist. The current relatively quiet seismic period – in which “far less” energy is being released in earthquakes than it is being stored from tectonic plate motions “cannot last forever,” said University of Southern California earth sciences professor James Dolan while delivering a new paper during the Seismological Society of America conference in Pasadena. “At some point, we will need to start releasing all of this pent-up energy stored in the rocks in a series of large earthquakes,” Dolan stressed.  The earthquake could spark a “super cycle,” meaning “a flurry of other Big Ones, as stresses related to the original San Andreas fault earthquake are redistributed on other faults throughout Southern California,” he said.
