Hidden fault could trigger cataclysmic "megaquake" in Asia

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Earthquake and Volcanic activity



New fault lines are being discovered all across the globe with some of those new faults having the potential to produce massive earthquakes which would result in millions of deaths. If that sounds like something you might read about in the book of Revelation, you're right.  In addition, bible prophecy records an event where a major city will be destroyed by some sort of cataclysmic event during the latter days of the Tribulation.  

This city has been identified as everything from New York to rebuilt Babylon, and is destroyed by everything from a nuclear blast to fiery hail from the heavens. Perhaps it's non other than present day Rome destroyed by a massive volcanic eruption?

"When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: "'Woe! Woe to you, great city, you mighty city of Babylon! In one hour your doom has come!' Revelation 18:9-10 NIV

Hidden fault could trigger cataclysmic "megaquake" in Asia

A massive fault could trigger a cataclysmic earthquake beneath Bangladesh, parts of east India and Myanmar, new research suggests. The hidden fault, which has been buried under miles of river sediment, could release an earthquake of magnitude 8.2 to 9.0 in one of the most densely populated regions of the world, the study found. And because researchers discovered the system relatively recently, they have no estimates for when such a megaquake could occur. "We don't know if it's tomorrow or if it's not going to be for another 500 years," said study co-author Michael Steckler, a geophysicist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University in New York City.

'Extinct' volcano near Rome is waking up and entering a new eruptive cycle
A volcano near Rome thought to be extinct appears to be waking up and entering a new eruptive cycle, geologists have said. While Colli Albani is not expected to erupt for at least another 1,000 years, when it does it could be as destructive as Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii in 79 AD. The team, led by Fabrizio Marra, from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Rome, analysed the risk of an eruption posed by the volcano after noticing the land around the volcano had been rising over recent years. This indicates there has been an injection of magma "within the youngest plumbing system" of the volcano – suggesting the volcano is waking up after a long period of dormancy.
