Prophecy Sign: Increasing earthquake and volcanic activity
June is only a week and a half old, but already we have had an average of at least one 6.0 magnitude or greater earthquake each day this month. Scientists are concerned enough about the proverbial 'big one' that government agencies on both sides of the 49th parallel are preparing for an earthquake of over 9.0 in scale. With the discovery that the earths mantle is moving 10 times the rate previously thought, this may explain the proliferation of seismic and volcanic events. Is God now ratcheting up events in preparation for the coming Wrath of God, (Tribulation)?
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
Scientists shocked to discover that Earth's mantle is moving at TEN TIMES the rate we all thought... Massive changes in tectonic plates can happen 'chaotically'
A shocking discovery by scientists shows that the Earth's mantle is moving ten times faster than originally thought, as reported by the Daily Mail. The revelation, which has taken researchers by complete surprise, came after the first comprehensive survey of the Earth's mantle. In fact, it seems that the surface of the planet is literally "bobbing" up and down "like a yo-yo" on a million year scale. This bizarre and dynamic concept means ten times more activity than geologists originally predicted. So what does it actually mean?
Given that the movements within the mantle are the source of volcanoes and earthquakes, the latest discovery is very important, as noted by the Daily Mail. Geologists from the University of Cambridge have now found that these movements are occurring much more often than first thought. And while movements in the mantle are responsible for the motion of tectonic plates and the creation of mountains and volcanoes at plate boundaries, the convection currents within are also the source of volcanoes and earthquakes in the middle of tectonic plates.
BIG ONE COMING? US on red alert for devastating earthquake and tsunami to strike
Today major rehearsals by disaster officials, the emergency services, and military, are continuing, in a bid to test how they will tackle with an overdue major earthquake that could strike anytime. The massive earthquake and tsunami readiness drill, which started on Tuesday, has been developed by the US government, military, and state and local emergency managers over several years to test if they are ready for what is expected to be the country’s worst ever natural disaster when it comes. And it is a case of when, not if. The exercise from yesterday, June 7, to 10 is called Cascadia Rising or even the “Doomsday Drill”. This is in reference to the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a 600-mile-long fault line off the west coast from Northern California to British Columbia. Scientists agree that the area is due major seismic activity and that a “big one” magnitude eight or greater earthquake is overdue by about 80 years.
