Are We Entering The Worst Period For Natural Disasters In U.S. History?


Are We Entering The Worst Period For Natural Disasters In U.S. History?Weather patterns are becoming increasingly erratic and the ground under our feet is becoming extremely unstable.  So precisely what in the world is going on here?  Is this the beginning of a trend?  Could it be possible that we are entering the worst period for natural disasters in U.S. history?  The tornado that just hit the town of Moore, Oklahoma is already being called one of the most destructive tornadoes that America has ever seen.  That tornado came almost two years to the day after the deadliest tornado in U.S. history hit Joplin, Missouri.  But of course it is not just tornadoes that seem to be getting more powerful.  Giant sinkholes are appearing at an unprecedented rate,  earthquakes are becoming more frequent and more powerful, 6 of the 10 worst years for wildfires ever recorded in the United States have all come since the year 2000, and the western part of the country is experiencing the worst stretch of drought since the days of the Great Depression.  Is all of this just some sort of a giant coincidence?  If not, what is causing these changes?


The giant F4 tornado that absolutely devastated Moore, Oklahoma had winds of up to 200 mph.  It was estimated to be at least two miles wide at one point, and what made it especially destructive was the fact that it sat on the ground for 40 minutes.  Most tornadoes only reach the ground for a couple of minutes.  According to the latest reports, the tornado resulted in 24 deaths and hundreds of others were seriously injured.

It was far more powerful than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima, and it is being called “the worst tornado damage-wise in the history of the world” by a meteorologist at KFOR-TV.

You can see video of the tornado right here.  Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb compared the tornado to a “two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community.

Meanwhile, other parts of Oklahoma experienced very unusual weather as well.  In fact, hail the size of grapefruits was falling in one area near Oklahoma City.

Personally, I sure am glad that I don’t live in tornado alley.  I don’t know if I could handle hail the size of grapefruits and tornadoes that are two miles wide.

But despite the fact that we have seen such destructive tornadoes in recent years, constructing storm shelters has very much gone out of style.  This is very unfortunate, because as Mike Adams of Natural News has pointed out, even a very small storm shelter can save your life…

Storm shelters offer almost 100% survivability against tornados. Tornados cannot penetrate underground, after all. If YOU are underground, even in a small, cramped storm shelter that’s just two meters wide and two meters tall, you have an almost 100% chance of emerging from the storm completely unhurt.

Most fatalities in tornados happen because people are killed from flying debris. You might even call it “wind shrapnel.” Take a bunch of lumber, aluminum siding, bricks and roof trusses and accelerate them to 200 mph and you have a deadly weapon that will kill almost anyone it touches. But put your body just three feet underground — in a tornado shelter — and all that debris flies right past you, harmlessly above your shelter.

Another huge concern is the epidemic of sinkholes that we have seen all over the United States over the past few years.

Some cities are actually being eaten alive by these things.  For example, just check out what is happening to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania’s state capital is suffering from a rash of monster sinkholes, but city officials are too broke to do anything about it.

Loose soil and leaky, century-old underground water pipes are to blame for the municipal nightmare, which came to a head on the New Year’s Eve when a 50-foot sinkhole yawned open along Fourth Street, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The eight-foot deep crater — one of at least 41 in the city — is so large, locals made it a “check-in” site on the social media site Four Square.

Some cheeky residents and the media nicknamed the hole “Super Sinkhole Walter.”

And check out what is happening in one housing division out in California

Scott and Robin Spivey had a sinking feeling that something was wrong with their home when cracks began snaking across their walls in March.

The cracks soon turned into gaping fractures, and within two weeks their 600-square-foot garage broke from the house and the entire property — manicured lawn and all — dropped 10 feet below the street.

It wasn’t long before the houses on both sides collapsed as the ground gave way in the Spivey’s neighborhood in Lake County, about 100 miles north of San Francisco.

For much more on this phenomenon, please see my previous article entitled “Why Are Giant Sinkholes Appearing All Over America? Is Something Happening To The Earth’s Crust?

At the same time, we have seen the number and intensity of earthquakes increase all over the planet in recent years.

Thankfully, the U.S. has not seen “the big one” strike yet.

But everyone knows that it is going to happen at some point.

One of the areas that I am most concerned about is the New Madrid fault zone.  A massive earthquake along that fault zone would deeply affect millions of lives.  The following is from a recent article by Michael Fitzgerald of the CNHI News Service

It’s a bleak scenario. A massive earthquake along the New Madrid fault kills or injures 60,000 people in Tennessee. A quarter of a million people are homeless. The Memphis airport – the country’s biggest air terminal for packages – goes off-line. Major oil and gas pipelines across Tennessee rupture, causing shortages in the Northeast. In Missouri, another 15,000 people are hurt or dead. Cities and towns throughout the central U.S. lose power and water for months. Losses stack up to hundreds of billions of dollars.

Fortunately, this magnitude 7.7 temblor is not real but rather a scenario imagined by the Mid-America Earthquake Center and the Institute for Crisis, Disaster and Risk Management at George Washington University. The goal of their 2008 analysis was to plan for a modern recurrence of quakes that happened along the New Madrid fault more than 200 years ago, in 1811 and 1812.

And remember, the scenario discussed above is just for a 7.7 earthquake.  Much more powerful earthquakes have happened in the New Madrid fault zone in the past, and that is exactly what many are expecting to happen in the years ahead.

Meanwhile, the “Ring of Fire” continues to heat up.  Over the past few years, there have been major earthquakes in almost every area along the Pacific rim except for the west coast of the United States.  We should be very thankful for that, but that good fortune will not last indefinitely.

Personally, I would not want to be living anywhere along the Pacific coast in the coming years.

And it is not just earthquakes that we need to be concerned about along the Ring of Fire.  We are also seeing a significant increase in volcanic activity.

Most Americans don’t realize it, but a major volcanic eruption is going on up in Alaska right now.  The following is from Yahoo News

One of Alaska’s most active volcanoes, which has been belching ash and spewing lava since last week, has forced regional flight cancellations and dusted some nearby communities with ash, scientists and local officials said on Monday.

Pavlof Volcano has sent up ash as high as 22,000 feet, with the cloud blowing eastward and the eruption showing no signs of abating, according to the federal-state Alaska Volcano Observatory.

The lava from its 8,261-foot (2,518-metre) peak has also created huge steam clouds on meeting the mountain’s snow.

And there are several volcanoes along the west coast of the United States that people should be keeping their eyes on as well.  One of them is Mt. Saint Helens.  The following is what one scientist recently said about Mt. Saint Helens…

We know magma is forming, we see little earthquakes, and we know it is reloading. We know it will erupt again and we know we may have as little as a week’s notice.

Personally, I am even more concerned about Mt. Rainier.  That is one of the reasons why I included an eruption of Mt. Rainier in my new novel.  Mt. Rainier has started to become unstable, and a full-blown eruption would be absolutely catastrophic.

In addition to everything else that I have discussed above, we have also been witnessing an increase in the intensity of hurricanes, wildfires, drought and dust storms over the past decade.

So what is causing all of this?

Do you have any idea?

  1. Basically it’s all related to water. The water has been used extensively from the Ogallala Aquifer for irrigation and the population explosion.
    Water has also been drained from other aquifers. And the on-going drought has complicated the situation.

  2. According to what I saw reported on the Weather Channel, earlier today ( Tuesday ) the tornado in Moore, OK was upgraded to F5, This was done after weather experts had more time to study available data and examine the devastation on location. Actually, the correct designation is EF5 – any fellow bloggers who are weather geeks please correct me if the ” E ” is another letter. It was reported … that winds in Moore exceeded 200mph!
    One would think that since Moore has had similar devastating tornadoes over the past several years that folks there would RELOCATE to an area that’s NOT in ” Tornado Alley “! Rather, they rebuild – apparently NOT learning any lessons from their repeating tradgedies!!? Seems quite foolish to me!

  3. Not the natural disasters have intensified – but the media coverage of them has!

    • Wrong. Take a little time and do some research. For instance the incidence and intensity of volcanoes and earthquakes has skyrocketed over the last decade. Floods and draughts too. In fact, the media has NOT covered the rise in natural disasters. Get your head out of the sand, and wake up before it is too late.

  4. Yes. Check out Clif High + Global Coastal Event on Youtube. Also, listen to his postings (called Wujos) on his website
    You’ll learn everything you need to know about what’s happening and why, and what’s to come.

  5. Yes indeed! Birthpangs that will continue to intensify. We are entering a “Time of Trouble” like the world has never known before.

    • The Blessed Virgin Mary (Rev. 12) has been appearing all over the world at an increasing rate. She says that natural and man-made disasters will escalate to the point of a world wide chastisement of fire. This will happen in our lifetime. Check out Akita Japan (approved), Betania Venezuela approved, Kibeho AFrica approved and where she predicted the genocide there in 1994. Garabandal Spain, and Medjugorje Yugoslavia. God can no longer allow the killing of the unborn and the sanctioning of homosexual unions.

  6. Years ago, Xenia, OH had a triple event. Three tornadoes combined into one and literally destroyed the Arrowhead Plat of homes! Xenia is 15 miles from downtown Dayton.

    The same tornado destroyed parts of downtown Xenia.

    The highways leading into Xenia were part of the problem.

    Route 35 went from being a two lane small highway to being a four lane highway just a couple of years before this. It was not an interstate highway. But a lot of trees came down to make this highway.

    Those trees block high winds from forming! So now we have high trees everywhere along the route.

    Oklahoma is part of a vast flat land. It needs to break up those winds naturally with a lot of trees. That probably won’t stop a tornado. But it will lessen its effect.

    I also suggest building the homes different. I mean cement block walls. I am no engineer. Only the engineers can design homes for this area. This has to be done with good design people.

    My own choice would be homes built into the ground itself. That is not a cheap choice. However it minimizes the damage from high winds. It has the side benefit of keeping the homes at a solid temperature year round.

    The Earth itself is at a surface temp of about 52 degrees. Anyone with a basement knows this and also knows it is probably going to be damp.

    That is where good engineering can come in with better insulation.

    The cost goes down if everyone does it. But it is still cheaper than rebuilding your home every few years and it is a lot safer.

    The only real help is to determine the cause of the tornado alley and soften the effect with good natural engineering. That means a whole bunch of trees.

  7. The second sun is coming back around causing all this chaos, particularly affecting the earth’s crust and causing stress on fault lines. Do your own research and discover the reality of the our sun’s binary twin.

  8. Side note on Xenia: A lot of the destruction was at Kennedy Shopping center. It was a known crime active area with a lot of arrests for prostitution and other things.

  9. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage (sways like a hut); and the transgression thereof shall be heavy on it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth on the earth. Isaiah 24:20
    The judgements are beginning.

  10. These things are all just impersonal, inanimate, natural phenomena which have always been occurring ever since Earth cooled off more than 4 billion years ago. Guess what: there are tornadoes on Mars.

    • The Blessed Virgin Mary (Rev. 12) has been appearing all over the world at an increasing rate. She says that natural and man-made disasters will escalate to the point of a world wide chastisement of fire. This will happen in our lifetime.

      • Yes vdmt55, The Blessed Mother told us that “because of the sins of abortion, homosexual behavior and materialism the natural and man-made disasters will increase in number and intensity”. “The US will come to know the poverty of the third world”.

          • No Gay Veteran. I have not had the honor of a visit from the Blessed Mother but Jesus has sent her to us throughout the centuries. She has been appearing in Medjugorje, Bosnia for the last 30 years, begging us to return to Jesus before it is too late. She also says that once she no longer appears there, she will never appear in this world again as it will no longer be necessary.

          • Here you are again Gay Veteran spreading your intolerance and hate. The same things you whine about when they are directed toward you. I will say this. If you continue to dishonor the Blessed Mother, your life will turn into a bigger pile of manure than it already has. I repeat, do not dishonor the Blessed Mother again, or there won’t be enough kleenex in the world to soak up the tears you will shed when the things and people you love disappear.

          • you’re free to believe whatever myths you want to believe
            BTW, you do understand that “Christian” fundamentalists consider the Catholic Church to be a cult?

          • I couldn’t care less what the fundamentalists, or you for that matter, think of Roman Catholicism.

      • Another religious nut certain of something but obviously not the source. Both of these things have been going on for millenia. You don’t have an understanding of God, reincarnation, or the soul and are preaching empty platitudes.

        • Like you have an understanding of God or the soul. Crawl back under that rock of yours you call home. Reprobate.

  11. If I had to sumerize how I feel about the growing instability of America’s weather system then I would sumerize it as this: This is all going to be the new normal and it is only going to get worse. There is a very good chance that 2013 will set a new record for droughts and wild fires in the mid-western US. Add in more floods and heavier rains farther east, along with a more powerful hurricane that will most likely hit the gulf coast either this hurricane season, or the next. Again, it is only going to get worse from this point on towards the future.

  12. You might want to take a look at the work of Scott Owen, who has
    several videos on YouTube on the topic of global weather disaster and
    related issues. This one, first out in 2010, accurately predicted the
    phenomena we are now experiencing on the basis of his theory, which he
    calls “post-glacial rebound.”

    it sounds a bit odd at first–and Owen, who appears to be a genius of
    sorts, is odd indeed–the theory makes sense. It certainly explores
    themes that the “global warmers” pass over without a second thought,
    such as nuclear catastrophes, meltdowns, and test explosions. Owen
    blames the nuclear madness for melting ice caps, which in turn leads to
    the earth’s tossing and turning the resultant displaced water.

    Worth a look and a listen. Get past Owen’s strangeness and hear what he is saying. A gem.

  13. Prov 1:22-33

    22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and
    the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

    23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit
    unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

    24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched
    out my hand, and no man regarded;

    25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none
    of my reproof:

    26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your
    fear cometh;

    27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction
    cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

    28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they
    shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

    29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the
    fear of the Lord:

    30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my

    31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way,
    and be filled with their own devices.

    32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and
    the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

    33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall
    be quiet from fear of evil.

  14. There were 3 days of heavy solar activity (M and X class flares) a couple days before the tornadic activity. That activity affects our weather and health conditions on Earth. The increase in heart/lung issues increases with the solar activity as well.

    • “there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars.” Just last week there were reported 4 fireballs in the sky near AZ and CA if I remember correctly.

  15. Maybe if the nations would stop putting pressure on Israel to divide His land up, all this would not be happening.

  16. I think that Moore, Oklahoma tornado was closer to an F5. They probably don’t have equipment to measure its verocity which was closer to 250-300 mph. When you compare it to an atomic bomb, it seems to be an appropriate comparison as it was the worst in the history of our country, it was much worse than Joplin and no one could have thought that possible. It’s just hard to watch it all on TV and those poor people are in total shock and disbelief. Storm cellars are fine but when the wind rips the doors off of them and the people get sucked out ….. We may not have military war on our soils but we have something just as powerful going on here when you consider natural disasters in the last few years. If this keeps up, the whole country will be in recovery mode in the next few years. Where do the insurance companies come up with all the dollars to fix these disasters. Why would the people of Moore want to stay? This is deja vu for them. They are talking of rebuilding. Sounds crazy to me. Between the national debt and the natural disasters, we are going to be in recovery mode for a long time, just picking up the pieces of our lives.

  17. Yes I do know, It’s pure science. The sun! I has changed over the last 15 years. It is now bright white light -luminous-very hot and is heating the surfce of the earth. Everyting you are talking about simply follows-one after the other. It’s not your SUV ( Global Warming) its your GOD. He controls the Sund the moon and the stars so they might be signs to you. God is simple-man is complicated.

  18. Edgar Cayce predicts tribulations will start after volcanic eruption in Iceland and heavy earthquakes in South America. After volcanic eruptions in Iceland watch more and more earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, one of the places the next volcanic activity will happen : Italy and Greece.

    “The so called endtime and earth changes will start with the great shaking of South America and the eruption of a volcano in Iceland. “If there are greater activities in (the volcanoes) on Iceland, Vesuvius or Pelee, then the southern coast of California and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following same, inundation by the earthquakes. But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere.” Americas westcoast will be destroyed. The widespread destruction in Los Angeles and San Francisco as well in many portions of the westcoast will occur. Earth changes will occur in the central portion of the United States as well.”

    Today we had the eruption of the Volcano in Iceland and Massive Chille Earthquake in South America last month.

  19. If the government is going to take all of our food reserve, then why would we want to have one???

  20. I believe it is caused by the sin of the world. Somewhere in religious folklore there is a belief that even Nature is angry and shocked at the sins of people. Revelations and the Blessed Mother at Fatima have both warned that in end times God will remove His protection from the world and the earth will be punished with storms and natural disasters the likes of which the world has never seen. Looks like we’re there.

  21. We have damaged the earth with underground nuclear testing, drilled and fracked for oil and natural gas and sucked the core of the earth dry. That doesn’t even count the genetically modified plants. The earth I believe was a very sensitive and balanced affair. If we destroy the balance and the unpinnings what can we expect. I believe we are inend times for sure. But I think it is mostly because of our abuse of the earth.
    People have forgotten this is our home. Most people would not destrot the house they are currently living in – but we have ineffect done the same thing to the earth. We are destroying it. And all for the greed of big business’ thirst for profit and more profit – while the average person suffers.

  22. Weather Patterns! HAARP. See what are all those lines in the Sky! Chem trails…Google it. Its not being hidden anymore. People are just dead asleep! Electomagnetic weapons are being used in conjunction. This is the new way to do war and control the people…I know it sounds all so wierd but it is true. Drones coming to control terrorist next…BIG GIANT TOPPIC just getting started. Look who is on their Terrorist lists,,,and more being added everyday. Like T-party. ( who are just normal law-abiding Citizens) Soldiers on list. Patriots and constitutionalist all on the list and more added everyday!! but it is not real terrorists..its YOU!!!!! Old Americans who can remember the way it was!!!! 40 and up!! are Terrorist….

  23. The month of June is an opportune time for humankind to respond urgently to our Lord’s request to Sis. Lucia of Fatima in 1917: !Ask, Ask, again insistently for promulgation of the Communion of Reparation in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the First Saturdays. The time is coming when the rigor of my justice will punish the crimes of diverse nations. Some of them will be annihilated. At last the severity of my justice will fall severely on those who want to destroy My Reign in Souls.” (Lucia’s Memoirs -465)
    What’s happening now is exactly what our Blessed Mother told a visionary in Medjugorie “that the earth will tremble.”

  24. Visionary Christina Gallagher has said that Jesus told her the earths plasma is boiling and giant hailstones will come. Pedro Regis has been told about fire coming out of the earth’s crust all over the world and massive earthquakes & tsunamis. Other visionaries Darly Chagas, Ken Peters, Maria Divine Mercy and the Rwandan visionaries plus many others have been shown similar things.

  25. The hard fact is that earthquakes, floods, droughts, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, etc., are all impersonal, inanimate, natural phenomena. They have nothing to do with human behavior any more than do the tides.

    Tornadoes? Guess what: those occur on Mars.

    Volcanoes? Guess what: those occur on Venus and Io, one of Jupiter’s large moons.

    It’s all just physics which doesn’t even know we’re here… let alone care.

  26. The Ring of Fire is because of continental drift and that has been going on since there were continents to start with: about 4 billion years once the Earth cooled off.

  27. God is purposefully trying to wake people up from moral decay to repentance seeing that He has blessed America above all other nations due to the unconditional promise He affirmed with Jacob. The fact is, all “western nations” have been in recent times blessed unconditionally because they unknowingly are from the “lost 10 tribes of Israel”, and God has fulfilled that promise now. Notice that the Bible refers to the Great Tribulation as the time of Jacobs Trouble (Jer 30:7). So these weather events are warnings that will continue to get worse and worse until the G.T. which afterwards will usher in the happiest time that humanity has ever known. Scientifically there never fails to be something to blame things on but that is for a purpose. There will continue to be a perceived alternate scientific explanation until it is too late to repent and there is then no mistake whats going on and whose causing it.

    • Another American who thinks his country is above others… Go out and travel!!! It’ll open your mind without making you so ridiculous! You interpret the way YOU want what the Bible says!
      It’s written in the Bible that the earth belongs to the devil and not to God because it had been given by Adam to him and he offered to Jesus-Christ in Mattew 4.
      We’re not in the Great Tribulation now! It’ll only be when Jesus-Christ comes back to meet us in the sky.

      For those catholics : poor dears you’re into a devilish reliong that God calls the whore in Revelation. Fatima or the representation of Mary is only a Babylonian relgion… Yuck
