Alaska Hit By 45 Significant Earthquakes Within 24 Hours As The West Coast Wonders If ‘The Big One’ Is Imminent

Within the last 24 hours, 45 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater have struck Alaska, and 25 of them were of magnitude 4.0 or greater. The worst one had a magnitude of 6.2, but none of the earthquakes did much damage because none of them hit heavily populated areas. But the reason why all of this shaking is causing so much concern is because the “Ring of Fire” runs right along the southern Alaska coastline, and all of the earthquakes except for one were along the southern coast.

 

After running along the southern Alaska coastline, the Ring of Fire goes south along the west coast of Canada, the United States and Mexico. What affects one part of a fault network will often trigger something along another portion of the same fault network, and so many living on the west coast are watching the shaking in Alaska with deep concern.

For a long time scientists have acknowledged that a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake is way overdue, and when one finally strikes the devastation that we could see in the Pacific northwest is likely to be off the charts. In fact, some scientists believe that the coming Cascadia subduction zone earthquake could potentially be as high as magnitude 9.0

That 9.0-magnitude quake could trigger a 500 mph wave and put 70,000 people in the “inundation zone” in serious risk. Depending on their location within that zone, Kathryn Schulz writes in her article, people will have between 10 and 30 minutes to evacuate.

If a giant earthquake along the Cascadia subduction zone ever did cause a tsunami of that size, the death and destruction would be unimaginable. Just consider what physicist Michio Kaku told CBS News about such an event…

“In Japan, they practice this. Children know exactly what to do, and there’s an early warning system that we don’t have in Seattle that we do have in Japan,” Kaku said. “There are building codes that are not being enforced. Realize that many buildings are just going to be toppled when this gigantic earthquake, a 9.0, and a tsunami hits the Seattle, Tacoma and Portland area.”

According to the FEMA director responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska, the operating assumption is that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

Further south, scientists are expecting “the Big One” to hit California at literally any time. The experts that have studied these things are warning that the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”, and one recent study claims that a big enough earthquake “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”

The Big One may be overdue to hit California, but scientists near LA have found a new risk for the area during a major earthquake.

They claim that if a major tremor hits the area, it could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly.

The discovery was made after studying the Newport-Inglewood fault, which has long been believed to be one of Southern California’s danger zones.

Let us certainly hope that nothing like that happens any time soon.

But without a doubt the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and we are living at a time when the number of earthquakes just continues to rise.

As I was writing this piece, I came across an article in a major British news source about a researcher that is warning that the gravitational pull caused by certain planets aligning will create ideal conditions for major seismic activity this week…

Frank Hoogerbeets has issued an online “major earthquake warning” amid fears a “big one” is on its way, claiming it could also cause a tsunami.

Mr Hoogerbeets, who is based in the Netherlands, uses a non-scientifically recognised way of predicting earthquakes based on planetary alignments with Earth.

He wrote on his website ditrianum.org: “On May 9 2017, three planetary alignments converge, one of which is Earth-Mercury-Uranus.

“It will be the third time this year that these three planets align; the previous two caused a 6.6 and a 6.9 magnitude earthquake respectively.

“The other alignments around the 9th are Mars-Venus-Saturn and Mars-Sun-Mercury.

“This convergence is also close to Full Moon (May 10).”

Of course we have already seen major seismic activity in Alaska, and we shall see if anything else happens over the next few days.

Another item that caught my attention was a CBS News report that talked about the fact that shark attacks are increasing along the west coast…

Shark attacks are on the rise along the California coast.

“Beach access to the water is closed today because we had a girl get bit by a shark,” said one park official.

Beachgoers were greeted by scary warning after 35-year-old Leeanne Ericson was attacked in knee-deep water north of San Diego last week.

Many believe that sharks become more aggressive when major seismic activity is imminent.

I don’t know if there is any truth to that, but considering everything else that is happening I found that to be quite interesting.

And I was also reminded of a prophecy that indicated that “shark attacks” would be a sign to watch for right before “the Big One” hits California…

I have seen in a vision about six years ago, the plates shifting under the coastline by California. God showed me it was going to massive. The entire coastline from Alaska down to Mexico was going to be destroyed, and a part of California that juts out to the West on the ocean will be completely swept away. God gave me a sign to look for before this happens: shark attacks. Sounds strange, I know, but sharks hunt by vibration, and they will actually be sending the plates shifting, and not their pray. This is what will cause shark attacks to occur in greater frequency.

Once again, let’s hope that nothing like this happens any time soon.

But we shouldn’t stick our heads in the sand either.

As I discuss in my book about the end times, Jesus told us that an increase in seismic activity would be a sign that His return was getting close.

Clearly that is happening, and I am entirely convinced that in the not too distant future we will start seeing natural disasters on a scale that we have never experienced before.

    Do you / anyone know if it would send a wave toward Arizona?
    Is there any kind of alert system I could get so I can hop in the car & leave?

      It would have to be an asteroid, and a big one at that, to cause a tsunami that would hit AZ. I wouldn’t worry about that at all.

    We are still waiting for the 7 year Tribulation period. This will come when Israel signs a 7 year peace treaty, or contract with the Palestinians. I don’t see that happening anytime soon, as every president has tried, for the past…how many years? Let’s see if Trump can do it….but Jesus isn’t coming back until the horrifying Tribulation period is over….

  • Jim Davis

    Lord, please call coastal Mexifornia home — to the bottom of the Pacific. Thanks!
    p.s. take DC and Manhattan next!

    • There’s that good ol’ Christlike™ attitude!

      Oh, wait… was it Jesus who prayed (preyed?) for the murder of people who thought differently than He did… or was that $atan? I forget. It’s so easy to confuse the two when listening to His so-called followers.

      • Jim Davis

        Well I thought that wouldn’t really require a sarcasm tag.

    Don’t scare the people statewide Alaska has over 100 earthquakes a day. Many are small 1.0 quakes. For us that live here it’s a fact of life.

    • jaxon64

      I always feel like all of these small quakes are the norm and actually good—the earth relieving the pressure of its plates in small, little increments and less likely to get a big one since most of the stress is released gradually.

  • Oldalaskan

    WOW I just re-read the headline and it is FALSE. The whole state in a 24 hour period last week was hit by 4 that is 4 earthquakes in a Magnitude of 4.1 – 5.2..

  • nano

    Hopefully no quake happens for awhile because Uncharted the lost legacy is coming out soon and I wouldn’t want that interrupted lol!

  • Ray S.

    Arizona could soon become beach front property. Might want to invest right now if you can.

  • Funny, in a sad way, is how so many Alaskans have been forced to relocate away from the coast for years now because of the rising waters eating up the land. Despite “Good Christians™” praying (preying?) for G-d to murder Californians, He instead opted to smite His Alaskans instead.

    It’s quite Biblical if you think about it… so maybe be more careful about asking G-d to murder His children for you simply because they do not share all of your petty political beliefs.

    You actually make your money off of negative news. Makes me wonder how you sleep well at night.

  • Cathy Scott

    If the Pacific plate is going under the American Plate, how is any part of CA going to fall into the ocean. The cliffs will crumble, but people talk as if CA is going to go the way of Atlantis.

    “The experts that have studied these things are warning that the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”, and one recent study claims that a big enough earthquake “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”.” What just desserts that would be for the previously great state of California
