LA Times: Authorities were tallying damage from a magnitude 5.1 earthquake that struck Southern California on Friday night. Fullerton police said early Saturday that up to 50 people had been displaced because of home damage.

The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off walls and glass to break. Merchandise fell off store shelves, and there were reports of plate glass windows shattered.

In Brea, several people suffered minor injuries during a rock slide that overturned their car. Fullerton reported seven water main breaks. Carbon Canyon Road was closed.

Residents across Orange and Los Angeles counties and the Inland Empire reported swinging chandeliers, fireplaces dislodging from walls and lots of rattled nerves. The shake caused a rock slide in Carbon Canyon, causing a car to overturn, according to the Brea Police Department. Fullerton police received reports of water main breaks and windows shattering, but primarily had residents calling about burglar alarms being set off by the quake.

Third-grade teacher Barbara Castillo and her 7-year-old son had just calmed their nerves after an earlier 3.6 temblor and sat down in their La Habra home when their dogs started barking and the second, larger quake struck, causing cabinet doors to swing open, objects to fall off shelves and lights to flicker.

“It just would not stop, it was like an eternity,” said Castillo, an 18-year La Habra resident.

At Disneyland in Anaheim, all rides were halted as a precaution but no damage or injuries were reported — other than ceiling tiles falling in the police station, Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

The first of a swarm of earthquakes hit the border of La Habra and Brea shortly after 8 p.m. with the 3.6 temblor. About an hour later, at 9:09 p.m., the 5.1 shock hit, followed by at least two more aftershocks in the magnitude-3 range in the next half hour. At least 20 aftershocks had been recorded by late Friday.

U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones said the 5.1 quake has a 5% chance of being a foreshock of a larger temblor.

“There could be even a larger earthquake in the next few hours or the next few days,” Jones said during a media briefing at Caltech.

Experts said that based on preliminary data, the series of earthquakes appeared to have occurred on the Puente Hills thrust fault, which stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles. The fault also caused the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake.

Friday night’s 5.1 quake was relatively shallow, which “means the shaking is very concentrated in a small area,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson. Hauksson said the quake sequence was unusual in that the 5.1 quake was preceded by the weaker foreshock.

Scientists are particularly concerned about the Puente Hills thrust fault because it goes directly underneath downtown Los Angeles. “This is the fault that could eat L.A.,” seismologist Sue Hough told The Times in 2003.

On Friday, though, police and fire departments in Los Angeles reported no damage. “Tonight’s earthquake is the second in two weeks, and reminds us to be prepared,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement.

Although the shaking was felt throughout the region, it didn’t rattle the professionalism at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Microphones above the stage swung back and forth and the hall shook, but the orchestra continued playing.

“The L.A. Philharmonic should get combat pay,” said audience member Michael Healy of Studio City. source – LA Times

Witnesses To The Massive 7.8 Earthquake In Turkey Remarked That ‘It Was Like The Apocalypse’ As Death Toll Now Passes 3,700 Souls And Rising

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A huge earthquake in Turkey and Syria registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale has already killed 3,700 souls, injuring countless thousands more, was like ‘watching the apocalypse’.

This week is off to a gangbusters start from a prophecy perspective, with a once in a generation earthquake rocking Turkey and Syria, open worship of Satan at the Grammys sponsored by Pfizer, as well as minor earthquakes in New York and Georgia. Russia is preparing to unleash a 500,000 soldier contingent on Ukraine, and Chinese spy balloons fly over America with impunity. Things get much hotter and it might be time for a little ’23 skidoo’, and wouldn’t that be great? In the meantime, here we are at the beginning of sorrows.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 (KJB)

One of the missionaries on our prayer list is LuAnn from Sarasota who ministers to the Muslims in Turkey. She reported this morning that “Yes thank God I’m all right.  I’m living in Istanbul and this horrendous earthquake happened in the southeast of Turkey a few hours away from me. But it is turning into quite a disaster for the nation.  Thank you for your prayers and your concern. We have been told to restock our “earthquake bag” in case we too become affected. We just learned Pastor Hakan and his wife in Anitoch went to be with the Lord , leaving behind a young son. We have so few Turkish Pastors. Tragic” Please continue to pray for LuAnn and her efforts in Turkey, that the Lord would continue to keep her safe and give her and her team much fruit for His Kingdom. And pray for the untold tens of thousands of souls devastated by this earthquake.

Major earthquake kills 3,700 in Turkey and Syria, weather hits survivors

FROM YAHOO NEWS: A huge earthquake killed more than 3,700 people across a swathe of Turkey and northwest Syria on Monday, with freezing winter weather adding to the plight of the thousands left injured or homeless and hampering efforts to find survivors.

The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians displaced by years of war. It struck before sunrise in harsh weather and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake.

In Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey, a woman speaking next to the wreckage of the seven-storey block where she lived said: “We were shaken like a cradle. There were nine of us at home. Two sons of mine are still in the rubble, I’m waiting for them.” She was nursing a broken arm and had injuries to her face.

“It was like the apocalypse,” said Abdul Salam al-Mahmoud, a Syrian in the northern town of Atareb. “It’s bitterly cold and there’s heavy rain, and people need saving.”

The earthquake was the biggest recorded worldwide by the U.S. Geological Survey since a tremor in the remote South Atlantic in August 2021.

In Turkey, the death toll stood at 2,316, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said, making it the country’s deadliest earthquake since a tremor of similar magnitude in 1999 devastated the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 2,300 people in Turkey and Syria early Monday morning. The ‘apocalypse’ quake occurred early in the morning when most people were sleeping or indoors.

GLOBAL SHAKING: Dramatic Increase In Earthquakes As 6.5 Magnitude Quake Rocks Nevada Near Area 51 And Felt All The Way From California To Utah

A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck in remote western Nevada early Friday near Area 51, according to the U.S.Geological Service, shaking people from Utah to California.

6.5 magnitude earthquake hits Nevada near Area 51; quake felt from Utah to California
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck in remote western Nevada early Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Service, shaking people from Utah to California — and some pointing out it happened near Area 51.

With the COVID-19 hysteria sucking all the oxygen out of the news cycle each and every day, stories that we would normally be paying close attention to have been largely ignored. Stories like the unexplained and massive rise in earthquakes both in America and around the world since 2020 began 4 and one half months ago.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:3-8 (KJB)

Not only are earthquakes increasing, they are appearing in very odd and out of the way places like Utah and Idaho, places not historically known for sizable earthquake activity. Globally over the past 24 hours, there have been sizable earthquakes in the Samoa Islands, Indonesia, and the Vanuatu Islands, as well as in Nevada as our main story today shows you. All told, there have been 612 earthquakes since this time yesterday around the world.

“And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” Isaiah 13:11-13 (KJB)

6.5 magnitude earthquake hits Nevada near Area 51; quake felt from Utah to California

FROM FOX NEWS: The temblor was reported at 4:03 a.m. about 35 miles outside Tonopah, just east of the Sierra Nevada range. First recorded as a 6.4 earthquake, the USGS later upgraded it to a 6.5 magnitude. The initial quake struck about 4.7 miles deep, the USGS said, and at least six sizable aftershocks were recorded shortly thereafter, including two with estimated magnitudes of 5.4. The USGS has advised that Nevada will continue to experience more earthquakes than usual as aftershocks continue throughout the day.

Initial reactions to the earthquake were largely humorous. Most people in the area were still asleep, meaning the earthquake woke them up.

A good number of reactions, though, noted the earthquake originated around the infamous Area 51, spurring a number of jokes that the earthquake was caused by aliens. In a year that has already included a pandemic, the threat of murder hornets and heightened hurricane activity, an Area 51 earthquake seemed to be fitting. READ MORE

Nevada highway damaged by largest area quake in 65 years

 FROM THE AP: The cracked main highway between Las Vegas and Reno reopened Friday, 10 hours after a predawn magnitude 6.5 earthquake that a researcher called the largest to strike the remote area of western Nevada in 65 years.

No injuries were reported, but officials said goods tumbled from market shelves, sidewalks heaved and storefront windows cracked shortly after 4 a.m. People from Salt Lake City to California’s Central Valley tweeted that they felt shaking.

Lights swayed at the governor’s mansion in Carson City, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak told reporters. “It woke me up, so it definitely had an impact,” he said.

Nevada Highway Patrol photos showed cracks on U.S. 95 before crews repaired them about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Tonopah. A detour to State Route 360 had added more than 20 miles (32 kilometers) to motorists’ trips.

The vast open range east of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada is seismically active, said Graham Kent, director of the Nevada Seismological Lab at the University of Nevada, Reno. He ranked Friday’s event with twin December 1954 earthquakes at Fairview Peak and Dixie Valley. Kent said those temblors were magnitudes 7.1 and 6.8, respectively. READ MORE

People Flee Their Homes After Massive 6.8 Earthquake In Eastern Turkey, Felt As Far Away As Israel, Leaves 18+ Dead With Over 300 Injured

A 6.8-magnitude earthquake rocked a sparsely-populated part of eastern Turkey on Friday, and it was felt as far away as Israel.

The quake was felt as far away as Israel, where residents in Petah Tikva, Holon, Yavne and Beersheba reported feeling the temblor. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in Israel. An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 rocked eastern Turkey on Friday
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A 6.8-magnitude earthquake rocked a sparsely-populated part of eastern Turkey on Friday, killing at least 18 people, injuring more than 500 and leaving some 30 trapped in the wreckage of toppled buildings, Turkish officials said.

Eastern Turkey is reeling tonight after a devastating 6.8 earthquake hit outside of the capital city of Ankara, and was felt as far away as Israel, news reports said. Funny how everything in the Middle East is always related some how and in some way to Israel, isn’t it? Fun fact, the word ‘earthquakes’ appears only 3 times in your King James Bible, and it all refers to events that will be happening during the time of Jacob’s trouble. We won’t be in the time of Jacob’s trouble, but I thought it was a fun fact anyway.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.” Mark 13:8 (KJB)

It’s also fun to look at the 16 places in your King James Bible where the word ‘earthquake‘, singular, appears. In nearly every place the word ‘earthquake’ shows up, it is directly connected to something the Lord is bringing to pass, and mostly in the end times. It would appear after reading them that God uses earthquakes as one of the tools in His arsenal.

“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?” Job 38:22,23 (KJB)

Speaking of that, did you know that the weather, the same ‘weather’ that everyone makes small talk about, is part of the Lord’s end times military arsenal? It is. Funny how that dusty, old, archaic King James Bible is still ahead of everyone else. Pray for the people of Turkey hit so hard by this earthquake, and pray that the gospel will get in there with relief efforts, too.

Powerful quake rocks eastern Turkey, killing 18; tremors felt in Israel

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 rocked eastern Turkey on Friday, causing some buildings to collapse, killing at least 14 people, injuring more than 300 and leaving several trapped, Turkish officials said. The epicentre of the quake, which struck at 1755 GMT, was in Elazig province, about 340 miles east of the capital, Ankara.

The quake was felt as far away as Israel, where residents in Petah Tikva, Holon, Yavne and Beersheba reported feeling the temblor. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in Israel. Governor Cetin Oktay Kaldirim told NTV television that three people died in the province. State-run Anadolu Agency quoted Gov. Aydin Barus as saying five other people died in his nearby Malatya province. At least 225 people were injured in Elazig and 90 in Malatya.

Earlier, Soylu told NTV television that rescuers were trying to reach survivors after a four- or five-story building collapsed in the town of Maden in Elazig.  Around four or five buildings collapsed in Sivrice, where two people were hurt, he said.

‘We are hoping we will not have more casualties,’ he was quoted as saying by the official Anadolu news agency. Turkish television showed images of people stuck in apartments rushing outside in panic, as well as a fire on the roof of one building.

‘It was very scary, furniture fell on top of us. We rushed outside,’ 47-year-old Melahat Can, who lives in the city of Elazig, said. ‘We will spend the coming days in a farmhouse outside the city,’ she said.

‘Sivrice was shaken very seriously, we have directed our rescue teams to the region,’ he told reporters, adding that there were reports of some collapsed buildings in the region. Soylu was at a meeting on earthquake preparedness when the quake struck.

The tremor was felt in several parts of eastern Turkey including Tunceli, the Turkish broadcaster NTV reported, adding that neighbouring cities had mobilised rescue teams for the quake area.    It was followed by several aftershocks, the strongest with magnitudes 5.4 and 5.1. The US Geological Survey assessed the quake’s magnitude at 6.7, and said it struck at a depth of about six miles. READ MORE
