The Ring Of Fire Is Roaring To Life And There Will Be Earthquakes Of Historic Importance On The West Coast Of The United States

Does it seem to you like there has been an unusual amount of seismic activity around the world lately?  Well, it isn’t just your imagination.  The Ring of Fire is roaring to life and that is really bad news for the west coast of the United States.  Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire.  Considering the fact that the entire west coast of the United States lies along the Ring of Fire, we should be very concerned that the Ring of Fire is becoming more active.  On Wednesday, the most powerful strike-slip earthquake ever recorded happened along the Ring of Fire.  If that earthquake had happened in a major U.S. city along the west coast, the city would have been entirely destroyed.  Scientists tell us that there is nearly a 100% certainty that the “Big One” will hit California at some point.  In recent years we have seen Japan, Chile, Indonesia and New Zealand all get hit by historic earthquakes.  It is inevitable that there will be earthquakes of historic importance on the west coast of the United States as well.  So far we have been very fortunate, but that good fortune will not last indefinitely.

In a previous article, I showed that earthquakes are becoming more frequent around the globe.  In 2001, there were 137 earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or greater and in 2011 there were 205.  The charts and data that I presented in that previous article show a clear upward trend in large global earthquakes over the past decade, and that is why what happened this week is so alarming.

On Wednesday, a magnitude 8.6 earthquake struck off the coast of Indonesia and that was rapidly followed by a magnitude 8.2 earthquake off the coast of Indonesia.  Fortunately those gigantic earthquakes did not produce a devastating tsunami, but that doesn’t mean that those earthquakes were not immensely powerful.

Normally we only see about one earthquake of magnitude 8.0 or greater per year.  The magnitude 8.6 earthquake was the most powerful strike-slip earthquake in recorded history.  If that earthquake had happened in the United States, it would have probably been the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.  The following is from an article posted on The Extinction Protocol….

I’ve never heard of a strike-slip lateral earthquake of this great a magnitude; especially under water. Preliminary assessment of the Indonesian quakes by U.S. geologists suggests one plate lurched past each other as much as 70 feet. San Andreas is a strike-slip, lateral- can we even imagine two sections of ground moving 70 feet near San Francisco? Had the force of the Sumatra quakes been unleashed upon San Andreas, the city would have been completely destroyed.

And earthquake activity along the west coast has definitely been heating up in recent days.

On Wednesday, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck approximately 160 miles off of the coast of Oregon.

Early on Thursday, there were two major earthquakes (magnitude 6.9 and magnitude 6.2) in the Gulf of California.

It is only a matter of time before the “Big One” hits California.

Sadly, most Americans (especially young Americans) can’t even tell you what the Ring of Fire is.  The following is how Wikipedia defines the “Ring of Fire”….

The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements.

The entire west coast of the United States falls along the Ring of Fire and a massive network of faults runs underneath California, Oregon and Washington.

At this point, scientists tell us that the west coast is long overdue for a major earthquake.  An article in Time Magazine a few years ago stated the following….

California has more than 300 faults running beneath its surface, including the massive San Andreas Fault, yet the quake to end all quakes has yet to occur. In 1980, a federal report declared the likelihood of a major earthquake striking California within the next 30 years to be “well in excess of 50%.”

Unfortunately, the truth is that is a very, very conservative estimate.  The west coast has always been extremely unstable and it always will be.  At some point there is going to be a tragedy of unimaginable proportions on the west coast.

Just hope that you are not there when it happens.

But it isn’t just California, Oregon and Washington that should be concerned.

According to the Arizona Geological Survey, there were 131 earthquakes in the state of Arizona in 2011.  That was a huge increase from just 53 in 2010.

And of course an absolutely nightmarish earthquake could occur along the New Madrid fault at any time, but that is a topic for another article.

As far as the Ring of Fire is concerned, another major threat is volcanic activity.

One of these days, one or more of the major volcanoes on the west coast is going to experience a major eruption again.  There have been signs that Mt. Rainier has been becoming more active, and a major eruption of Mt. Rainier could potentially be absolutely devastating for much of the northwest United States.

Of even greater concern along the Ring of Fire is Mt. Fuji.  As I wrote about the other day, Mt. Fuji has been dormant for about 300 years but is now rapidly roaring to life.  New craters have appeared and these new craters are venting gas.  There has been a swarm of earthquakes under Mt. Fuji this year, including a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on March 15th.

If Mt. Fuji were to experience a full-blown eruption, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic.  Mt. Fuji is not too far from Tokyo – one of the most densely populated cities on the entire planet.  The loss of life resulting from a full-blown eruption of Mt. Fuji would be almost unimaginable.

But it is not just along the Ring of Fire that we are seeing a rise in volcanic activity.  The truth is that we are seeing a rise in volcanic activity all over the globe.  The following are just a couple of recent examples which have been in the news….

*The volcanoes in Iceland that caused such huge problems a few years ago are becoming very active once again.

*Authorities in Colombia have declared a “red alert” and believe that an eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano is imminent.

*Ash is venting at the world famous Anak Krakatau volcano in Indonesia.

Something really strange is going on.

Most scientists will deny it or will attempt to downplay it until they are blue in the face, but the truth is that the trembling of our planet is getting worse.

If this shaking continues to get worse, there are going to be some absolutely horrific tragedies in the years ahead.

So do you have a theory for why there is so much seismic activity happening along the Ring of Fire?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below….

    Just when I thought the economy, terrorism, devaluing currency, race riots, solar storms and big brother were the worries we now have this.

  • Gay Veteran

    what is your basis for this?

    “…Most scientists will deny it or will attempt to downplay it until they are blue in the face, but the truth is that the trembling of our planet is getting worse….”

    • http://stevequayle vic

      most information is kept from the public, media outlets are not giving us all the truth and being censored, if the scientists know the world is coming to end they will not be able to tells us due to big brother.

    • callmedodge

      I live in Tokyo and climbed Mt Fuji earlier this year. There are no new craters and it is not venting gas. It`s the most heavily monitored volcano in the world and yes, there has been a slight increase in chamber pressure and scientists are wary but there is no signs of an immenent eruption beyond “it`s been a while”.

      Stop manipulating facts.

  • i’vegivenup

    We have entered the beginning of “End of Days”. The destruction…suffering and deaths will be mind numbing. There is no way to stop it because we have past the threshold or the point of no return. Only God will make things right and if you aren’t with Him you will perish….

    • David9

      Yep…..the signs are clear. No one, not even the angels in Heaven know the day nor the hour, but we are to know when that time is near. Don’t gamble with eternity. Salvation is free to all people. All one has to do is ask.

      That’s right mumble to an imaginary friend. All these issues/challenges are natural or human created.

  • Ken

    Over stated Alamrmism with subtle sensationalist driven key words and phrases such as “The Ring of Fire is ROARING to life”…then later stating that they are concerned it might be becomimg more active…other various sensationalist words such as “absolutely catastrophic” and “unimaginable”
    and “Something really strange is going on”…as if nothing like this has ever happened in the history of the World. Yet, these things have been happening since the beginning of creation. Sure such earthquakes etc are powerful and can cause devastation around the globe….but this article seems to coincide with the same spirit of “Hysteria” and “Conspiracy” thinking that seems to be more prevalent and rampant these days with misinformation and half truths spreading like virus on the internet these days than what is going on with the Ring of fire. On the one hand this article says “Scientists” are saying this or that….then on the other hand…after using such colorful words as “catastrophic” etc….the article then says Scientists will deny or play down the facts!

    I prefer to stick with actual scientific facts and I tend to reject hysteria and conspiracy theories.

      Ken:

      If you look at the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii you’re in the center of the “Circle of Fire.”

      In counter-clockwise there have been earthquakes of great magnitude to the north (Aleutian), Japan (West), Indonesia (to the hills – West), New Zealand (South), Chile (Southeast), Peru and Mexico (East) .

      It’s about time that the Northeast quadrant (from Hawaii – California) to suffer the same.

      This is not a game speculation.

      The Earth is like a boiled egg cracked, all parts move when you move from one place.

      There are other factors that do not fit here to give you a decent lesson on how this works (eg closeness of the moon, flows of magma inside the Earth, and especially about the consistency of the Earth’s core (which no one knows, know both the Sun and the Earth’s core – nothing, nihil).

      So dude, if its start whinnying horses for no reason, start granhir pigs, geese begin their grasnir, your dog is barking for no reason to prepare, ************** next.

      Men know when something happens to the animals they sense.

      OK, the fact is we are now at the End Of This Age! Proof>
      The Exact Date Israel Became A Nation Is Easily Calculated From The Scriptures Using Ezekiel 4:4-8 & Leviticus 26:18,21,24+28. Take The Penalty(390>Israel’s Punishment + 40>Judah’s Punishment=430 Years, Subtract 70 Years, Since These Were The Years Already Served By Israel While In Babylonian Captivity. Total Then = 360 Years. Multiply 360 Times Seven (As We Are Instructed To Do Repeatedly Here In Leviticus since 90% of the Jews rebelled against God failing to return to Jerusalem). Remember Our Total Is Now 2,520 Years Of Punishment Remaining For Israel. Now Add The 2,520 Years To The Year & The Month Of Nisan In Which Israel’s Babylonian Captivity By King Cyrus Ended(Nehemiah 2:1), Which Is Our Point Of Reference From The Bible. Wow, This Will Bring Us To Hebrew Year 5708 & The Exact Date Israel Became A Nation! But This Means Little To Westerners Who Go By The Gregorian Calendar. Hey. This Date Is May 14th 1948! The G-d of Is-rael=Is-real !!!

    There is nothing that I can do besides move from south west oregon and I am not going anywhere. This is one of the best places on earth as far as beauty and a mild climate. We have a low population and plenty of water which I keep reading that will be scarce in many places in the future. At least I don’t have to shovel rain like you do with snow and the ground does not freeze hard in the winter. It get pretty cold in Idaho and eastward. In the midwest and the south those tornados are bad. I suppose that there is a risk anywhere you live from something or other. Remember that the earths crust is floating on molten rock heated by the earth’s core. There is a vent from that hot liquid rock about 50 miles from here and the earth could hack up a boulder or two. Heck I guess we need a super hero like Studabaker Hawk that Frank Zappa described in the song Billy the Mountain. At least if there is a volcano, earthquake, fire, tidal wave, rad. fallout, floods, or whatever, there are very few people in our neck of the woods which is a darn site better that living in a city when all heck breaks loose.

    We are long overdue for the Cascadia Subduction Zone to rupture- but this time it will be north to south and then that will put strain on the San Andreas fault to rupture.

    I can say with -absolutely- 100% certainty that the big one will stike California at some point in time…do we really need scientists to tell us that they are nearly sure?

    Jesus is coming, as He predicted /Mathew 24:7

  • InArizona

    Well as a geology student, I can tell you that this is all pretty normal. Maybe not in our lifetime normal but in the history of the earth-normal.

    Michael, you are right (even thou some would like to attack you here) there is an increase in activity both earthquakes and volcanics. There is more to this, but the reality is: does the USGS publish a warning and destroy the housing market and economy even more (Think Mammoth CA) and panic all Americans? Or do they just let it all go, knowing they cannot predict exactly WHAT will happen next and WHERE?

    There is a cycle to increased plate techtonics, earthquakes, and volcanic activity… so the fact that the earth has been relatively quiet in our past, just means it is time for it to wake up!

    There are always warning signs if anyone dares to look, the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, well the waking up of some volcanos in Hawaii should have made some of the geologists take notice.. and they probably did, but like I said before, not being able to know when and where, causes them to keep their mouths shut.

    Alaska is due for a big earthquake
    Anak Krakatau is due for an eruption
    One or more of the Cascades are due for an eruption
    A mega thrust and mega tsunami is waiting in the wings off the coast of Oregon… the list can go on and on…

    I’ll tell you what, I am headed off on a geology field trip in a few weeks, we are going to check out some “dormant” volcanos.. I’ll let you know what I find!

    I have visited almost every volcano in North America (except a few in Alaska, although I did witness first-hand 3 major eruptions in my lifetime!) and after my trip next week that pretty much covers all of it, so we shall see.

    But other than sheer fascination, there is no reason to panic, I can assure you, there is no place to hide/run etc if you live anywhere near them!

    Thanks Michael… I love it when you put out an article that is my passion! And never mind the nay-sayers!

    I have tracked the daily # earthquakes worldwide since October. You will see by the link that the # of earthquakes has increased steadily every month since, and has almost doubled the rate as of end of March. This is not even counting April, which may be much higher due to the high number in one day (the Indonesian quake).

    BTW, the figures used on the chart “Monthly Earthquakes since October”, are from the USGS website at USGS Latest Earthquakes so they are based on FACTS (Ken!)

    Everybody has to die of something, sometime: Earthquake, AIDS, old age, accidents — whether you believe in God or not, you will meet him when you die, and have to make an accounting for your life: how selfish and how selfless you were every day. How much you cared for other people. What use, selfless or selfish, you made of your talents. If you don’t believe in God, the most prudent thing to do is to live as if He did: for one day you will meet him whether you are expecting it or not.

    Do you know about Post Glacial Rebound Effect? If not then check out Pastor/Scientist Scott Owen’s Youtube channels: believersunderground & undergroundbelievers because he is an expert on the subject of PGRE which he says is causing most of the earthquakes & volcanoes. Scott also has a radio show on Liberty Broadcasting Network from 9-11AM-CST M-F. Scott is so dedicated about warning people that he has hiked around the country many times staying at YT subscribers homes. He is not in it for profit & nor am I. Aristotle said: “All earthquakes & disasters are warnings; there is too much corruption in the world”. Mother Earth bats last!

  • JC

    I wonder if your calculations took into account that in late 2003, they changed the numerical scale for reporting earthquake intensity. That is, they downgraded the larger ones by 1 entire step (a factor of 10)…for instance, what they before September 2003 they would have called a 6, they now called a 5; what would have been a 7, they now called a 6, and so forth.

    This is a reply to Ken, with all the “scientific facts’ one has 2 choices, 1:realize what is going on in the world and accept that it wasall predicted 4000 years ago and get right with God or 2; deny it and get ready to spend eternity in hell…your choice.

  • Ainos

    It is true that Earthquakes have always happened since the beginning of human history and all others catastrophes but let’s not be blind and deaf, now you hear more about these things . If you look at the statistics of disaster events, you may draw your own conclusions. Catastrophes are increasing in numbers, everyone knows that. It is true that the media use these stories to alarm people, but it is true also those catastrophes are coming more intense. It is a fact that we cannot deny. As a Christian person, I can say the same than others; the wrath of God is upon us. Come to Jesus today before is too late. He is the only way.

    APRIL 23, 2012. Watch the Atlantic side too, there have a lot of EQs in Europe the pressure also is building up on that side of the world. A volcanic eruption of El Hierro can produce a tsunami that has a potential disastrously affecting the Eastern United States.

    We are in the end times the Lord has just about had it with all the sin in the world, people no longer know right from wrong and if they do they are afraid to say anything for fear of not being politically correct, All this, that is happening is in the bible, whole cities will be destroyed, more earthquakes, volcanos, ect ect will increase the closer it gets to Jesus coming back to judge all of us.It does not even matter if you believe me or not, the fact remains that it’s going to happen because everything in the bible will come to pass no matter what period.God has sent prophets into the world to warn of what is to come even before he sent his son Jesus to earth to die for our sins on the cross.The newest prophet has been receiving messages for only over a year she has been given messages to share with the world a few have been regarding the fact that we ARE in the end times,and that Jesus will be coming back in our life time and that GOD will send one last warning to prove to us that he does exist before he starts dividing the sheep from the goats or wolves i guess is a better way of putting it.The messages from this prophet have been already translated into 55 languages they are on twitter and facebook under Jesus to mankind and the website to be able to read all of the messages is http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com she is also now backed by many clergy of different christian and catholic denominations and more than 90 prayer groups have been establishes as well. GOD told her he loves all his children on earth and wants us all to be saved and to be in heaven with him someday, heaven being our one true home.

  • Billsocal

    These so called experts have tunnel vision. They think the mega quake is going to happen in California. My bet is it is going to happen in the Pacific Northwest. You have people in Seattle having dreams of a mega quake and a giant tidal wave, It so happens that one of plates is underneath the North American Plate. This is putting pressure on the North American plate. The pressure is going to have be released. There has a 5.6 quake off the coast of Oregon on the same day as the Baja quakes. Since Baja is closer to Southern California it got more attention. There was also 6.0 quake off the coast of Oregon earlier this year. No one is also talking about the under water volcano about 300 miles of the Oregon Coast. It seems with volcanic activity around the world it could becoming active.
    Then there is the Crater Lake volcano the could be becoming active. Only famous and wonderful places such as the Yellowstone Super volcano and Southern California get the attention. While places just as danerous or more so go unnoticed. Example Longs Valley Caldera, the other super volcano in the US> There has been a lot of earthquake close to Long Valley over that last few years. But the so called experts aren’t worried even though it is long over due for a major eruption like Yellowstone. Just like the east coast isn’t prepared for the 1000ft tidal wave that will hit it. The tidal wave will be caused by part of a volcano in the Canary Island falling off into the Atlantic Ocean. There is a lot of things that going to happen. Maybe Edgar Cayce dream about what will happen to US is coming true.

    God created this earth and mankind. He gave us a personal letter (Bible) on how to live and obey. The pre-flood society did the same thing people are doing now. They said no to God and did what was right in their own eyes, Genesis ch. 6-7 tells you how that worked out. God is not mocked! The bible tells us that near the end time their will be an increase in earthquakes (Mat. 24) tells you all about it.God gave Noah a 120 yrs. to preach and warn people judgement is coming. God has given us about 2000 Yrs. since his SON died for our sin warning every generation. GOD is very loving and long suffering but if I were you I wouldn’t bet my eternity that this is all a fairy tale. Christ died for everyone if you will repent and trust Him you don’t need to worry about the earth quaking under you if you are standing on THE ROCK.

    Insightful, thought provoking feature article American Dream.

    Historical records reveal that Ring of Fire activity surges are cyclic.

    The most formidable enemy isn’t earthquakes, natural or manmade disasters. The enemy is the cowardly public’s denial and repression of real threats and failing to prepare.

    It is impossible to underestimate the depth to which the American public burying their heads in the sand.

    Observe that some of your commenters go out of their way to mock and disparage your articles.

    I am curious why wasn’t yellow stone included in this?
    If there is an increase in earthquakes and volcanic activity I though there would be some information on yellowstone. Does anyone know anything about it as if there has been increased earthquakes or what?

  • Jeff

    One also needs to consider the fact that there are nuclear power plants either on or near many of these faults. If the quake or volcanoes don’t get you, the radiation eventually will (see Fukushima). And by the way scienctific community and the MSM are not reporting significant increases in radiation along the West Coast of the US. All they do is increase the ‘acceptable’ levels of prolonged exposure. If you haven’t figured it out by now, the US Corp / Fascist Govt is illegitimate.

  • robert ramirez

    The reason that there’s beginning to be more earthquakes and volcano activitiy is due to the fact that the earth wobble is getting a lot worse due to the perturbation of unknown force putting tremendous stress on the inner core,I hate to say this people but I believe its a precursor to a pole shift so be adviced,be prepared! All the ancient civilizations that foresaw and predicted these events couldve been right on.peace !!!!

  • Tatiana Covington

    People have no control over volcanoes. The Earth does not respond to human behavior. It doesn’t even know we’re here.

    It’s all just geology: blind, impersonal, inanimate natural phenomena.

  • John L Meiler

    I have been watching all of this for the last 6 years, and it does not take a rocket scientist to see the vast up change in earthquakes and volcanic activity. You can say this is all due to end times prophecy and you would be right. If you do not believe in that the earth itself changes itself every so many thousands of years by itself,and we are starting in to one of those change cycles.

    Michael:

    You forgot the Aleutian Islands, there have been earthquakes there.

    Also forgot the Indian Ocean.

    Violent earthquakes above 7 in the last three years, were not told in the newspapers, Ocean does not shed blood.

    Signs of the Biblical times my friends. You can believe that true or not. Jesus loves you and wants to have a relationship with you so don’t wait. We are not talking about a relgion but a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ. Big difference. That is what true Christianity is about. God bless.

  • Just Saying

    Rev 6:12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

    Rev 11:13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    Rev 16:18 And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth

  • Benjik

    Micheal, here is a link to an excellent compilation video that our neighbors shared with us this evening. It highlights ALL the things you have been talking about, earthquakes, mass animal deaths, solar activity, severe weather, etc. in mostly local news clips. I actually thought maybe you put it together! (It even has a shot with the artwork depicting God’s hand, the hourglass and the earth you recently used at the end of an article!) It is about 20 mins long but WELL worth the time.

    Here’s the scary part: This video only covers the last couple of months, Jan to about mid-March, and we all have seen the increase in activity in the last few weeks……

    Throughout history God has punished wicked societies. Examples:society in Noah’s days,Sodom,Gomorra,Samaria,Jerusalem,Ninive narrowly escaped,Pompeii,Rome,New Orleans,Japan,Indonesia,ect.

  • I am John

    “My patience has died, and the children are far away. Time to gather the grapes for the winepress; time is up. I will not tarry much longer!”, thus saith the LORD. I am John, messenger of the LORD, and born of a Gentile Elizabeth. Those who know Him and His Word will understand the meaning. Tornadoes, supercell storms, and earthquakes are NOTHING compared to His judgment to come in a few years. Repent! O’America, you are filled with the spirit of Babylon. O’Church, you are filled with the spirit of the Laodecians. O’Children, turn back to the Father. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. You would not be nor would you have without Him who created you. Behold, the Lord Jesus stands at the door and knocks!

  • Maxx

    It is interesting;

    That the rise in this activity coincides with the whole global warming craze. Whether you buy into this or not, one thing is certain: the climate is in fact, changing. To try to draw a causal conclusion at this point in terms of a correlation would be far too presumptuous. Still, it would be interesting to know if the two phenomenon are related either by causality, or the two serving as effects from a yet undetermined separate cause. Course, this would just give us something else awful to worry about.

    Good evening.

    I can not believe how many people just want to stick their heads in the sand. Wake UP and look UP!

  • http://prophecyupdate David

    In the last days:
    In Luke 21:11, Jesus mentioned earthquakes as a sign of the last days along with famines, pestilences and “great signs” from heaven….

    There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

    In the book of Revelation, it tells us that the greatest earthquake of all time will occur just before the end of the Great Tribulation. Revelation 16:18 says the following….

    Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.

    There is no scientific fact. Science has nothing to do with what the word of God says WILL and is happening. Those among us may choose to reject hysteria, but rejecting the word of God is unequivocally the very worst action possible. The time is not near, it is upon us. You may not have tomorrow, so stop acting as if you do. The day and the hour, no man knows, not even the angels in heaven. But we do know when that time is near, and that time is right now. If you have not been saved, the you have no hope. Thats not hype, or hysteria, thats a fact. If you died tonight, would you spend eternity in Heaven or Hell? Eternal life has been given to everyone. All one has to do is receive it.

    Understand that the references in the Bible come from a much earlier time when the ancient Sumerians wrote about the dwarf star which is a binary companion to the Sun which passes by every 3,600 years. It is believed that 80 percent of the stars in the milky way galaxy have a dwarf star companion.

  • Robert

    Maybe the French nuke tests in the middle of the southern half of the Pacific plate back when Jacques Chirac was the French president destabilized the plate? I may recall mistakenly, but I remember them being at fairly regular intervals. Remember how Tesla said he could shake the Earth apart with well-timed 1 kiloton explosions in the same place over and over?

    “Most scientists will deny it or will attempt to downplay it until they are blue in the face, but the truth is that the trembling of our planet is getting worse.”

    Please show a trend graph, supported by scientific data. You have nothing but “*********** is happening!!!!”

    You do yourselves a complete disservice by alarming popluations unnecessarily. Come on guys – if you are really on about uncovering coverups then this is real shoddy. Please provide real geophysical trend data, interview a bona-fide scientist, interview another bona-fide scientist with a different conclusion to give balance, then you might have the beginnings of a story.

    Sure, we’ve seen a few earthquakes – hell, I have lived through one recently. But to illustrate your alarmist headline (“roaring to life”) you need to show historical data compared with contemporary data, supported by credible scientific review. Come on!

    • Shirl

      Don, I don’t live in fear at all! God has provided for me and protected me all my life, sometimes miraculously. This increase in activity is only one sign of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Add to that the countries aligning like described in Revelation, the growing anti-semitism around the world and the scientific ability to carry out the prophecies in the Bible. I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but there is no doubt that the prophecies will come to pass. If you doubt the reality of the Bible, read The Harbinger. It is astonishing how God is replaying a part of Israel’s history in the US. God will be victorious in Christ!

  • patricia

    Well! either you believe what Jesus said in Matthew or you dont. What i think is misunderstood is that when Jesus says ‘you will know the time when the end of this age is near as there will be famine, earthquakes, wars and rumours of war’ This has been misinterpreted. It certainly is not scaremongering and people should heed the warning
    from all perspectives scientific and biblical….

    I understand that Jesus was not saying these events had ever occured before but there will be an increase in these events which is happening today.

  • applescence

    What is happening isn’t all that complicated and happens every few million years or so. Our solar system is crossing the galactic (Milky Way) equator, so, like a ship crossing earth’s equator, becomes subject to coreolis effect of opposite “hemisphere”, and this is just change in the electromagnetic field, which wracks our planets electromagnetic field. Probably fairly common for our magnetic pole to flip upsidde down (say, to always point at galactic equator, for example), so our iron core may be shifting inside the mantel, which would account for the increase in activity we experience as earthquakes and volcanoes. I am pretty sure we can’t fix this politically, either. Ancient civilizations refer to the pole shift, when it actually occurs, as “3 days of darkness”. E ticket ride, I am guessing.

  • NotAsleep

    If you are wondering why all these things are happening globally, you might want to research H.A.A.R.P (High Frequency Active Auroral Project). Might answer some questions…

  • patricia

    Jesus was not saying these events had not happened before since the beginning of creation there have always been earthquakes and the rest etc since the fall.

    He was also saying you will hear of these things going on in different places and of course without technology and the media we would not know what happening throughout the world.

    It wont be facts or scientists that dig you out when your buried alive

    So from all perspectives and angles ‘stay awake’

  • kim

    Whether the world wants to believe it or not, the bible talks of the ring of fire. I read about it in about 1980 or before. Mockers will come in that day and G-d said be careful of so called sience. it is better to believe G-d than man. for those who think this is just a scare as they all get worse. It is still true just the same.G-d also says HE is in the Whirlwind. tornado’s are getting worse. These are all signs HE is coming. Matthew 24 and Luke 21 tells us much and is more up to date than media. Any nations going against Israel will be destroyed..your choice…from the beginning in Genesis 12 , G-d tells us who is cursed..

  • LuLu

    The reason for the increased volcanic activity is due to the Photon Belt that is approaching. Its proximity — it is supposed to reach us towards the end of the first half of this decade — is “exciting” the volcanic activity. It is a natural process that happens every 11,000 to 12,000 years. The number of volcanos keeps increasing.

    THREE MILLION Underwater Volcanoes
    9 Jul 07 – Researchers estimate that in total there could be about 3 million submarine volcanoes, 39,000 of which rise more than 1000 meters over the sea bed.
    See Three Million Underwater Volcanoes
    Check it out: Web http://www.iceagenow.com

    The reason the average person is not aware of this is because the news media does not publish it.

  • Andy Jacobson

    I suppose some of this is sensationalized however the increase of earthquakes and natural disasters is well documented. For me I think it is better to prepare and if nothing happens that is okay. If something does happen and one is not prepared then what does one do? I think that Katrina taught us the valuable lesson that it is better to take care of yourself than to rely on someone else taking care of you.

    Friends!

    I have the answer to all these phenomena that are occurring around the world. Below is a message sent on 11/04/2012 by Our Lady to a confidant, mentioning about these phenomena of nature:

    LAST MESSAGE TODAY, 11TH, THROUGH THE DAY.

    Little children loved, now everyone expects a great sign.

    Get ready, everything will happen as scheduled and planned by the sky. The plans of the Father, as you well know, do not change, change, do not change.

    I ask you at three o’clock in the evening, pray three Hail Mary, and say an Our Father. “Father, have pity and mercy of your whole creation that lives on earth.”

    There may be no great show as everyone expects, because the Almighty does not like big shows, but it fulfills its promise.

    Prepare yourselves all of you, because starting today the land definitely changed his whole demeanor. This show, you all will see him and will suffer even the elect and faithful to the Father

    Take care of your health and make use of the oil of St. Raphael and the sacred handkerchief. Pray more, beg for mercy to the Father.

    Wait the news that I say to those who do not believe. But those who believe, be supported and comforted the suffering. I promise you, and ye sure of this, I’ll be with you!

    I bless you in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Amen? Mary …

    I believe as the polar ice caps melt, the excess water, and water is very heavy, is migrating toward the equator. This changes the pressures on the teutonic plates, causing them to move. The more ice that melts, the greater the change of the weights of the oceans and the more earthquakes—–and the strength of the shaking is propertional to the weight of the water displaced.

    My theory is, the escalation in Earthquakes, Volcanic activity, magnetic disturbances in the earth are due to the extraction of oil from the earth. I have been following all this activity for several years, have done mega research and that is what I believe. Logic will tell you that something has to give somewhere with all the voids left inside the earth. And, this has been a process over many many years…..

    i wonder if its got any thing to do highly charged gas cloud we are entering in conjuren with the alignment with the centre of the milky way,,,,the discovery probes sent in the seventies are leaving the solar system and have picked up massive magnetic feilds just out side of the solar system,,,which would have an impact with this planet and the rest,,,,,they beleive that all the planets are being effected,,,,with changes to their atmosphres and their rotation,,,,well like they say time will tell

  • southerngirl

    I believe we are looking at a combination of solar activity, magnetic field affects and the earth reaching its maximum in the precessional cycle. The earth goes through periodic highly active cycles. The Mediterranean is due for another highly active period as well. The West Coast has been spared thus far from the Ring of Fire quakes, but it is only a matter of time before LA and SF are hammered and the PNW is hit by a major tsunami from the Juan de Fuca fault system. We are probably entering that window.

If there is some light in this regard, it is related to the Sun, but not with this short cycle of 11 years.

    repent of your sins and return to Jesus Christ! This is the way it has always been. Jesus Christ is God and He created the earth. Sin abounds like never before: abortion, fornication, homosexuality, apostasy, schism, heresy, impurity, licentiousness, paganism, idolatry, witchcraft, satanic everything, tattos piercings you name it. He would stop the shaking and the volcanoes if we convert. Will we? Sadly many will not and we will pay. Get on your knees and start praying if you haven’t, if you have ramp it up a lot. God is Merciful but He is also Just. Accept His Mercy, right now, Divine Mercy Sunday. PLEASE!

    Earth”s Last Crisis

    Widespread Apprehension About the Future

    The present is a time of overwhelming interest to all living. Rulers and statesmen, men who occupy positions of trust and authority, thinking men and women of all classes, have their attention fixed upon the events taking place about us. They are watching the relations that exist among the nations. They observe the intensity that is taking possession of every earthly element and they recognise that something great and decisive is about to take place–that the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis.–PK 537 (c. 1914).

    The tempest is coming and we must get ready for its fury by having repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord will arise to shake terribly the earth.
    In the last scenes of this earth”s history war will rage. There will be pestilence, plague and famine. The waters of the deep will overflow their boundaries. Property and life will be destroyed by fire and flood. We should be preparing for the mansions that Christ has gone to prepare for them that love Him.–Mar 174 (1897).

    Great Balls of Fire

    Last Friday morning, just before I awoke, a very impressive scene was presented before me. I seemed to awake from sleep but was not in my home. From the windows I could behold a terrible conflagration. Great
    balls of fire were falling upon houses, and from these balls fiery arrows were flying in every direction. It was impossible to check the fires that were kindled, and many places were being destroyed. The terror of the people was indescribable. After a time I awoke and found myself at home.–Ev 29 (1906).
    I saw an immense ball of fire fall among some beautiful mansions, causing their instant destruction. I heard someone say: “We knew that the judgements of God were coming upon the earth, but we did not know that they would come so soon.” Others, with agonised voices, said: “You knew! Why then did you not tell us? We did not know.”–9T 28 (1909).

    Earthquakes and Floods

    The earth”s crust will be rent by the outbursts of the elements concealed in the bowels of the earth. These elements, once broken loose, will sweep away the treasures of those who for years have been adding to their wealth by securing large possessions at starvation prices from those in their employ. And the religious world, too, is to be terribly shaken, for the end of all things is at hand.–3MR 208 (1891).
    The time is now come when one moment we may be on solid earth, the next the earth may be heaving beneath our feet. Earthquakes will take place when least expected.–TM 421 (1896).
    In fires, in floods, in earthquakes, in the fury of the great deep, in calamities by sea and by land, the warning is given that God”s Spirit will not always strive with men.–3MR 315 (1897).
    Before the Son of man appears in the clouds of heaven everything in nature will be convulsed. Lightning from heaven uniting with the fire in the earth will cause the mountains to burn like a furnace and pour out their floods of lava over villages and cities. Molten masses of rock thrown into the water by the upheaval of things hidden in the earth will cause the water to boil and send forth rocks and earth. There will be mighty earthquakes and great destruction of human life.–7BC 946 (1907).

    Coming Events Are in the Hands of the Lord

    The world is not without a ruler. The program of coming events is in the hands of the Lord. The Majesty of heaven has the destiny of nations as well as the concerns of His church in His own charge.–5T 753 (1889).

    Abraço,

    Final Events

    A National Sunday Law Means National Apostasy

    To secure popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for a Sunday law….By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. . . .

    As the approach of the Roman armies was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy be a sign to us that the limit of God”s forbearance is reached.–5T 451 (1885).

    We must take a firm stand that we will not reverence the first day of the week as the Sabbath, for it is not the day that was blessed and sanctified by Jehovah, and in reverencing Sunday we should place ourselves on the side of the great deceiver….

    When the law of God has been made void and apostasy becomes a national sin, the Lord will work in behalf of His people.–3SM 388 (1889).

    The people of the United States have been a favoured people, but when they restrict religious liberty, surrender Protestantism, and give countenance to popery, the measure of their guilt will be full, and “national apostasy” will be registered in the books of heaven.–RH May 2, 1893.

    National Apostasy Will Be Followed by National Ruin

    When our nation, in its legislative councils, shall enact laws to bind the consciences of men in regard to their religious privileges, enforcing Sunday observance, and bringing oppressive power to bear against those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath, the law of God will, to all intents and purposes, be made void in our land, and national apostasy will be followed by national ruin.–7BC 977 (1888).

    There have been comments made about the increase of earthquakes and volcanic activity. These have definitely increased. There have always been wars but these have increased in violence.
    There are wars and the possibility of wars in the Middle East and Eastern Asia. Domestic violence is on the rise. Respect for al kinds of authority is gone. The economy of the world is at its worst. The debt the United States owes can never be paid by the taxpayers. And still we print worthless money. Morality is rare, indeed.

    Read the second chapter of the Book of Daniel in the Bible. There it is prophecies that there would be four empires down through history That was fulfilled and as was prophesied, the Roman empire was divided. Then it says that the God of heaven would set up a kingdom that would never be destroyed. That is the next part of the prophecy to be fulfilled. Jesus is coming soon. No, we don’t know “the day or the hour”, but Jesus said when we see these things happening, we could know His coming is “near, even at the door”. For those who have made Him their Friend there is nothing to fear. Dust of your Bibles and get to Know my Friend Jesus.

    For the unenlightened, as the evil twin to our sun, Nibiru comes closer into the core of our inner solar system, the pertubations in each planets orbit, inner structure, spin rate, and magnetic allignment will be altered. Earth will be on the side of the sun with Nibiru this time, ( last happened in Noah’s time )and as it gets closer, we will shake and rattle a lot, and eventually come apart at the seams. Nibiru crossed the orbital boundry zone of Uranus last september, and crossed into the orbital boundry zone of Jupiter in Feb 2012. By July the vibrations and shaking of the plates will become really pronounced. By September basic breakup will begin as the ocean tides assume collossal proportions, sloshing about, this will also sharply affect the earth’s rotation. Not to worry, all the good people will assend to heaven, and the bad ones get to stay here forever with their master Satan, no matter what shape the planet is in. Get close to God.

    Hey Don
    You don’t know what fear is.
    The Bible says “Fear of God is the beginning of knowledge.”
    God is trying to wake us up with these “calamities”
    Don’t be one of the ones shaking their fist at God when the real calamities start,

    where have u been? Is your head in the sand.

    The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred at 00:58:53 UTC on Sunday, 26 December 2004, with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The quake itself is known by the scientific community as the Sumatra–Andaman earthquake The resulting tsunami is given various names, including the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, South Asian tsunami, Indonesian tsunami, and Boxing Day tsunami.
    The earthquake was caused by subduction and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing over 230,000 people in fourteen countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 meters (98 ft) high.
    It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand.
    With a magnitude of Mw 9.1–9.3, it is the third largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismograph. The earthquake had the longest duration of faulting ever observed, between 8.3 and 10 minutes. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 1 centimetre (0.4 inches) and triggered other earthquakes as far away as Alaska. Its epicentre was between Simeulue and mainland Indonesia.[8] The plight of the affected people and countries prompted a worldwide humanitarian response. In all, the worldwide community donated more than $14 billion (2004 US$) in humanitarian aid.

    Massive earthquake hits Japan
    An 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit off the east coast of Japan early today. The quake — one of the largest in recorded history — triggered a 23-foot tsunami that battered Japan’s coast, killing hundreds and sweeping away cars, homes, buildings, and boats.
    Destroyed nuclear plants.

    Two weeks before the earthquake off the coast of Sumatra I was telling a person that an earthquake is due off the most westerly coast of Indonesia but could not remember the particular Island of that nation. It occured the exact distance from the Island in the ocean as I have seen it beforehand. There is in the future two really large earthquakes (worldwide) yet in the future. The worldwide earthquakes (although all of the small ones add up to the total they do not occure in the same hours but perhaps over days)The largest one is to occure in the south china sea. Woe to them who lives on the coastlines (low areas near the oceans) and those who give suck in those days. These earthquakes also causes vulcanic activy spuing toxic materials into the air which does not negatively affect the woman but causes breast milk to become contaminated.

    For those interested in Prophecy, did you know that the word defined in Matthew 24:7 as ‘earthquake’ is not limited to just ‘a shaking of the earth’ but is also the word for ‘commotions of the air’? This prophecy is about an increase in ALL CATACLYSMIC, GLOBAL EVENTS pertaining to the ENVIRONMENT… whether they be in the ground (earthquakes, volcanoes), water (tsunamis, floods) or atmosphere (gales, hurricanes, tornadoes). The teachings given in Matthew 24 were not spoken to a crowd of people, but to just a few disciples, this is because it was meant to be ‘passed down’ to other believers. It was meant to be understood as more than ‘a casual visit amongst friends’, and even more than prophecy, it was specifically spoken as a warning, an actual ‘timeline of events’ that we were to be warned of, and to watch for… I invite all to check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPA49HojW6E&feature=BFa&list=UUbnGjvq8QIoMVkjBSnoDlvg&lf=plcp

    Thanks to the Internet, anybody can be an expert and a prophet (until the day of the prophecy becomes ‘today,’ that is). I believe I’ll cling to God, to my Bible, and to my guns (don’t be bitter). Best regards in Christ Jesus

    And…where is the science, the scientists, the dissenting opinions, anything at all that would make this piece begin to approach a real article? Name names. Name sources. Cite your breathless horror-stricken warnings, otherwise, it’s just prose. Fiction. Opinion. And it feeds into fears and hopes that the nasty, godless, hedonistic, left-wing paradise called Cali-Ori-Washaville will, oh, crack in two and all those godless infidels will just…die, leaving the rest of America clean, fresh-smelling and virginal once again. Ah…why not explore that rather grim Grimm’s fairy tale of beliefs and dreams for any other who is not like you? [ Dare to look into the mirror, as it were. ]

    That orgasmic death wish for California is very strange and contradictory, cause it doesn’t seem…very Christian. It seems much more…Luciferian.

    Romans 8 : 22 – 25
    22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth , why doth he yet hope for ? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it

A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. 8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,

    I’m sick of hearing all this “prophecy” **********************, I think this activity is once again being blown WAAAYYYYY out of proportion by the media, trying to needlessly scare people. Don’t get me wrong, we should always be prepared for natural disasters, but there’s no reason to go into panic mode just yet.

  • seth

    The ring of fire is just the preasure release valve of our planet. Yes it is waking up along with the core of earth. Techtonic plates are begining to shift and move. It is how the planet evovles and will continue to do so long after were gone. The sad thing is that main stream media “refuses” to cover what is going on and warn people. God bless.

    Dear People,
    Please wake up America. We,as a nation,have excluded God out of our daily living in almost every area. Out of schools,relationships,government,
    market place and thought life. As a nation for 200 years plus we have been inpenetrable,then 9/11. Would we turn to God,NO. Seven years later,the stock market crash and the beginning of many hard economic times. If we keep on this path away from God,He will continue to take away the “Hedge”of protection with more awakening judgements. And as Creator of all things,HE HAS THE AURTHORITY!
    These earthquakes are just some of the many oppurtunities to turn to Jesus in love and ask Him for forgiveness for our many national and personal sins. He paid for yours and my sin(s). Please for Heavens sake,Turn to Him.”For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son,That he who believes in Him will not perish,but have eternal life” John 3:16.
    One of the Watchmen on the wall!

  • FreedomX

    Really? 0 Comments? This article is over half a year old, and not a single statement? This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. Some evacuations or something. Not much we can do about the agitated nature at this point, but we can at least try to prevent the deaths, or in THE LEAST, make this widespread knowledge so everyone can decide for their selves.

  • evillinda13

    I believe that population growth, and the shear weight of the people, all our personal belongings, the weight of homes, & the weight of all the garbage we leave has a good deal to do w/ the recent increase in seismic & volcanic activity! We are about to deplete this planet of every natural resource she has. As for evacuation over 20 million people live within a 19 mile radius of Mt Popo in Mexico. Where are they going to go, and what happens if there is a global eruption of the most active volcanoes within days or weeks of each other?

      If you will look up Haarp and chemtrails, you will find out who controls the weather including earthquakes and tornados and the jet stream.

  • Tonia H.

    I believe weather has more to do with earthquakes then anything.I live in So Cal and we have some of the weirdest weather,and we also have more earthquakes then any other state.one day its hot next day we’re wearing jackets.With weather constantly changing like that,hot cold hot cold,pressure builds.Take a piece of hot glass and run it under cold water,do that a few times and the glass with eventually crack and/or break.i feel the same thing goes on with our fault lines.

    • Jimmy B.

      um hey, it takes quite a bit more time to effect temperature wise, the underground. in fact permafrost is a year round thing, even though temps can be above 70 for moths, its still there. the reason you have more earthquakes is because you live around fault lines. lots of them. or very active ones, or you have a very large mother tht likes to jump, or you just need your crack high and are shaking. either way its not the changing temp causing it. for tht to happen it would have to go from like 90 degrees to -50 in a few hours and hold like tht on very damp soil ( as per one example) or you could live on a glacier. hmmm idk, im going to go back to chief’n and reading about how best to store my vodka underground when the Apocalypse comes.

      • Bill Naylor

        Jimmy back in Noahs day they didn’t know destruction was upon them until it was to late. Noah preached and warned them for 100 years but just like the people of today who reject Jesus they didn’t listen. And so doomed themselves to destruction. I hope you will accept Jesus and escape the destruction that’s coming on America.

    Iv’e been patiently waiting for 25 years for California to shake to the ground ! specificly Los Angeles , and the whole bay area ! They are Mega-Regions and need to end ! and if nature takes them out , so be it ! But hurry up mother nature ! those city freaks will think green !

  • khymmy1

    The atmosphere is warming, so stands to reason the earth crust warms also… when things are colder they condense and they stay together as temps. Increase they expand and are free to move more. Also the pacific plate is locked along the Oregon coast on an intrusive rock formation up by Newport Oregon, the mountain is actually rotating towards the northeast, because the plate is locked up in the subduction zone if it ever breaks free and all that pressure releases all hells gonna break lose for the Oregon Coast. There may be other points that I’m unaware of. Another thing I find interesting and am not sure if anyone is studying is the fact that we have no earthquakes on the land of the southwestern Oregon Coast only offshore… they occur to the north of us around the Portland area and northwards, to the east of us around Bend all the way to yellowstone, to the South of us in Cali. And offshore about 100 miles. It’s like we live in a dead spot relatively speaking. Have a look at the shakemaps sometime. Anyways just a few of my personal thoughts, the research about the plate lockup is available thru the Oregon university. I used it as part of my research while writing a geology term paper yrs. ago.

  • Netnie

    beacuse of the increasing movement of the magnetic poles to russia …

  • TeamHale

    The polar ice caps are melting witch means higher oceans which means more weight and pressure pushing through the fratures in the crust of the earth mixing with hot lava creating pressure from steam. In turn heating up the tetonic plates allowing them to move faster and more violent. Just a theory. : ) which will probably cause a massive volcanic eruption or eruptions which will cool the earth sending us back into another ice age and repeating another earth cycle.

    What I have to say about the Ring Of Fire Isaiah 29:6
    From the Lord of hosts you will be punished with thunder and earthquake and loud noise, With whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire.Isaiah 30:30
    And the Lord will cause His voice of authority to be heard, And the descending of His arm to be seen in fierce anger, And in the flame of a consuming fire In cloudburst, downpour and hailstones.Isaiah 33:12
    “The peoples will be burned to lime, Like cut thorns which are burned in the fire.Isaiah 66:15
    For behold, the Lord will come in fire And His chariots like the whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire.Isaiah 66:16
    For the Lord will execute judgment by fire And by His sword on all flesh, And those slain by the Lord will be many.Matthew 13:40
    So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.Luke 12:49
