Alarming reports are coming out of Africa that a 50-foot-deep crack that has developed in the earth across many miles actually could end up – eventually – splitting the continent into two parts.
The crack has appeared along Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, and runs from Somalia, in the northeast part of the continent, hundreds of miles down to South Africa, they say.
CBS explained it opened “suddenly” and “many scientists believe it could end up breaking Africa’s continent apart.
The Washington Examiner say scientists suggest it is an indication of tectonic plate movement.
CBS quoted Smithsonian geologist Ben Andrews with the comment, “We’re seeing a crack that in all likelihood formed over many thousands of years or hundreds of thousands of years.”… more
We do not know when or if this will take place but it is very interesting. We can tell you that during the tribulation a lot is going to occur that no one will be prepared for.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A military helicopter carrying officials assessing damage from a powerful earthquake crashed Friday in southern Mexico, killing 13 people and injuring 15, all of them on the ground.
The Oaxaca state prosecutor’s office said in a statement that five women, four men, and three children were killed at the crash site and another person died later at the hospital.
A state government official who was not authorized to be quoted by name said the chopper crashed into a group of people who had been spending the night in an open field after a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the area. Aftershocks had caused people to flee their homes for fear they would collapse…. more
CALIFORNIA is on a major earthquake alert after the San Andreas fault was rocked by 134 tremors in the space of a week.
The US state sits on top of the potentially catastrophic fault, a chasm between two massive plates of the Earth’s crust that extends hundreds of miles across the country.
Recently, there have been signs the fault is building pressure beneath the surface and could rupture.
In the last week, a three mile stretch of the San Andreas Fault around Monterey County, just south of San Jose, has been hit by 134 earthquakes, with the largest registering at 4.6 on the Richter scale – strong enough to be felt 90 miles away in San Francisco – at 11.31 AM local time on Last Monday.
Of the rest, 17 were of a magnitude 2.5 or higher, and six above 3.0…. read more
PM confirms Israel offered direct assistance to Iran and Iraq following earthquake; Red Cross in Iraq and Iran refuse assistance; Netanyahu: Our humanity is greater than their hatred. Israel continues to be a light unto the nations, Nov. 15, 2017.
Israel offered humanitarian aid and support following the earthquake that killed over 500 and injured close to 8,000 Saturday, Iran and Iraq refusing the assistance.
Israel, as with all global natural disasters, attempted to act as a first responder to Iran and Iraq crisis contacting the Red Cross in both countries, both states refusing any assistance from the Jewish State. Prime Minister Netanyahu offered direct assistance and supplies, with the IDF Homefront Command preparing medical and search and rescue teams…. read more
Rescuers dug with their bare hands Monday through the debris of buildings brought down by a powerful earthquake that killed more than 400 people in the once-contested mountainous border region between Iraq and Iran, with nearly all of the victims in an area rebuilt since the end of the ruinous 1980s war.
Sunday night’s magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck about 19 miles outside the eastern Iraqi city of Halabja, according to the most recent measurements from the U.S. Geological Survey. It hit at 9:48 p.m. Iran time, just as people were going to bed.
The worst damage appeared to be in the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e-Zahab in the western Iranian province of Kermanshah, which sits in the Zagros Mountains that divide Iran and Iraq…. read more
Events in September 2017, including but not limited to the 8.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Mexico in early September, followed by a 7.1 magnitude on the 19th, along with the evacuations happening now where 50,000 are being forced to flee their homes amid fears Mount Agung, in Bali, could erupt at any moment, and a state of emergency that has been declared on the Vanuatu island of Ambae as the Monaro volcano continues to erupt, show that we are seeing a level of earth activity that is increasingly concerning.
Over the past weekend, Mexico was again shaken up by another 6.2 magnitude earthquake and no less than 26 smaller earthquakes have rattled California in a 24 hour period, and 176 earthquakes in a seven day period, causing some serious alarm over the much-talked about “big one” hitting along the 800-mile fissure that runs almost the length of California, called the San Andreas Fault.
“It’s a different system,” says Matthew Blackett, Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography and Natural Hazards at Britain’s Coventry University, “But the system that is causing these quakes in Mexico is by and large similar to what’s happening in California.” In both locations, tectonic plates are sliding past one another…. read more
A strong new earthquake shook Mexico on Saturday, causing new alarm in a country reeling from two yet-more-powerful quakes this month that have killed nearly 400 people.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the new, magnitude 6.1 temblor was centered about 11 miles (18 kilometers) south-southeast of Matias Romero in the state of Oaxaca, which was the region most battered by a magnitude 8.1 quake on Sept. 7.
It was among thousands of aftershocks recorded in the wake of that earlier quake, the most powerful to hit Mexico in 32 years, which killed at least 90 people.
There were some early reports of damage in Oaxaca. Milenio TV broadcast images of a bridge that partially collapsed…. read more
Oh my Lord Jesus, We pray for Mexico!
At least 21 children and five adults died at a primary school which collapsed in Mexico City during Tuesday’s quake, the government says. The shallow, 7.1 magnitude quake killed at least 230 people in total and caused major damage across states in the centre of the country.
Desperate searches for survivors under the rubble are continuing. Hopes rose at the school when a girl was located alive and a delicate operation to rescue her is under way. Dozens of buildings collapsed across the country, including several churches where worshippers were killed.
Families with young children could be seen sleeping outside their homes in the street in the capital…. read more
