Will The Coming New Madrid Earthquake Split The United States In Two?

The New Madrid fault zone is six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.

The U.S. government and large corporations are so concerned about the potential for a major New Madrid earthquake that they have held major exercises that simulate one.

“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 (KJV)

Yesterday, a friend wrote to me that the New Madrid Fault line had a small earthquake. It was 3.1 on the Richter Scale, and 7 miles deep. Now, I know that sounds insignificant. But I thought that the readers should know the history behind New Madrid fault zone.

I read this piece this morning from a Missouri website which tracks movement on the New Madrid:
“An updated USGS report says the New Madrid Seismic Zone has a larger range of potential earthquake magnitudes than previously imagined.

Emergency Management Agency director Jeff Shawan said the report and others like it paint a grim picture of life in Southeast Missouri if the New Madrid monster quake occurs.

“If we have a cataclysmic event in the New Madrid Fault, Butler County will be severely affected,” Shawan said. “Eastern Butler County is part of the liquefaction zone, and we know the destruction there will be extreme. However, destruction in western Butler County will be significant as well.”[1] – source

From Freedom Outpost:

Once upon a time, North America almost divided along a very deep subsurface rift. Today, that rift system and the faults associated with it are known as the New Madrid fault zone. This fault zone is six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Back in 1811 and 1812, four of the largest earthquakes in U.S. history struck that area of the country. The movement of the ground was so powerful that it changed the course of the Mississippi River and it rang church bells in Boston, Massachusetts.

Back in 1811 and 1812, there were four earthquakes along the New Madrid fault zone there were so immensely powerful that they are still talked about today.
Those earthquakes opened deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards, and were reportedly felt more than 1,000 miles away. It is said that the stench of fire and brimstone hung in the air for months afterwards. The most powerful of this series of quakes was on December 16th, 1811. The following is one description of what happened on that day…

This powerful earthquake was felt widely over the entire eastern United States. People were awakened by the shaking in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Charleston, S.C. Perceptible ground shaking was in the range of one to three minutes depending upon the observer’s location. The ground motions were described as “most alarming and frightening” in places like Nashville, Tenn., and Louisville, Ky. Reports also describe houses and other structures being severely shaken, with many chimneys knocked down. In the epicentral area the ground surface was described as being in great convulsion, with sand and water ejected tens of feet into the air — a process called liquefaction.

So could such an earthquake (or worse) strike today? Well, last year the U.S. Geological Survey released a report that warned that the New Madrid fault zone has the “potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought”, and the USGS also admits that the number of significant earthquakes in the middle part of the country has more than quintupled in recent years. We also know that the U.S. government and large corporations are so concerned about the potential for a major New Madrid earthquake that they have held major exercises that simulate one. Scientists tell us that it is just a matter of time until another superquake hits the region, and personally I am one of the millions of Americans that believe that we will eventually see a New Madrid earthquake that will divide the United States in half. That is one of the reasons why I included a New Madrid earthquake in my novel.

But others are skeptical. They point out that we have not seen a truly devastating earthquake in that region for more than 200 years. So why be concerned about one now?

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

Alaska Rocked By Back-To-Back Earthquakes Just Days After Seismologists Record Unexplained ‘Bell Ringing’ Sound In The Earth

Dramatic aerial images show devastated Alaska roads cracked by the two earthquakes that rocked the state and sparked a tsunami warning this weekend.

Shocking aerial images of shown the devastating impact the earthquakes in Alaska had on the roads and landscape. The tremors that struck the state on early Friday morning decimated stretches of road, and made them impassible

It was only a few weeks ago that seismologists recorded a very unusual bell-like ringing sound emanating from inside the Earth’s core. They had no idea what to make of it and still don’t understand where that uncanny sound originated from. Yesterday, devastating twin earthquakes rocked Alaska so hard a tsunami warning was issued.

While Alaska is still being hit with hundreds of tremors and aftershocks, significant earthquake activity is dramatically on the rise around the world. The question I would like answered is how is all this connected with that weird bell ringing sound? I have a feeling we’re about to find out sooner rather than later.

Dramatic aerial images show devastated Alaska roads cracked by the two earthquakes that rocked the state and sparked a tsunami warning

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: Back-to-back earthquakes measuring 7.0 and 5.7 also rocked buildings Friday in Anchorage and the surrounding area, sending people running into the streets and briefly triggering a tsunami warning for islands and coastal areas south of the city.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first and more powerful quake was centered about 7 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, with a population of about 300,000.

People ran from their offices or took cover under desks. The 5.7 aftershock arrived within minutes, followed by a series of smaller quakes. ‘We just hung onto each other. You couldn’t even stand,’ said Sheila Bailey, who was working at a high school cafeteria in Palmer when the quake struck. ‘It sounded and felt like the school was breaking apart.’

A large section of an off-ramp near the Anchorage airport collapsed, marooning a car on a narrow island of pavement surrounded by deep chasms in the concrete. Several cars crashed at a major intersection in Wasilla, north of Anchorage, during the shaking.

Anchorage Police Chief Justin Doll said he had been told that parts of Glenn Highway, a scenic route that runs northeast out of the city past farms, mountains and glaciers, had ‘completely disappeared.’

Traffic in the three lanes heading out of the city was bumper-to-bumper and all but stopped Friday afternoon as emergency vehicles passed on the shoulder.

The quake broke store windows, knocked items off shelves, opened cracks in a two-story, downtown building, disrupted electrical service and disabled traffic lights, snarling traffic. It also threw a full-grown man out of his bathtub.

Flights at the airport were suspended for hours after the quake knocked out telephones and forced the evacuation of the control tower. And the 800-mile Alaska oil pipeline was shut down while crews were sent to inspect it for damage.

Anchorage’s school system canceled classes and asked parents to pick up their children while it examined buildings for gas leaks or other damage.

Fifteen-year-old Sadie Blake and other members of the Homer High School wrestling team were at an Anchorage school gymnasium for a tournament when the bleachers started rocking and the lights went out. People started running down the bleachers in the dark, trying to get out. READ MORE
