Imagine waking up one morning in the not so distant future to a deep rumbling noise that permeates your entire home with the bed you are laying upon shaking, pictures falling off your walls and your home cracking and creaking. Thinking at first in your just awakened daze it to be your washer/dryer on high spin cycle, you suddenly realize it's also not a freight train speeding by that has gotten your dogs barking, your cats looking like they've seen a ghost and your fish going crazy but a massive earthquake shaking your home, shocking you out of your slumber even before you've had your first cup of coffee.
Whether you are black, white, red, green or purple, earthquakes are the 'great equalizer' and as we learn below, more experts are warning of possible 'Biblical quakes' on our horizon. We're told not 'if' but 'sooner or later' with one expert offering his compelling reasons why we're well overdue for quakes of 'apocalyptic proportions'.
Back on August 24th, Susan Duclos asked in a story on ANP if 'the megaquakes were coming' after government's around the world had begun warning their citizens to prepare for disaster and soon after a deadly 6.2 magnitude quake struck Italy and a massive 7.4 magnitude quake struck in the middle of the southern Atlantic Ocean. We were asked then if government's around the world knew something that we don't know. Because government's prepare, so should we.
Only two weeks after the conclusion of a massive exercise centered upon a deadly New Madrid fault earthquake called "Show Me Mass Care" was concluded featuring disaster relief agencies from 8 different US states including Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Arkansas, the nearby state of Oklahoma was struck Saturday with what tied their biggest earthquake ever, a 5.6 magnitude quake. Felt nearly 1,300 miles away according to this story from Strange Sounds as also seen in the map photograph below taken from NBC5's Brian James Twitter account, we're asked if the massive quake so close to the New Madrid that was felt halfway across America was the beginning of something big.
We also take a look below at several recent stories that prove we may be closing in on the 'Biblical quakes' warned of including a recent warning given by an earthquake expert that "a series of high magnitude quakes are well overdue to strike along the world's major fault lines" with his dire warning emphasized with this sentence.:
"No one in the world is safe" from the looming natural disasters of potentially apocalyptic proportions.
While YouTube videographer Dutchsinse nearly immediately put out a video after the Oklahoma quake proving to us that it was likely set off by fracking with a series of fracking wells found within several hundred feet of the epicenter of the quake as seen and heard in the 3rd video below, we learned this morning that Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission have ordered 35 fracking disposal wells to be shut down in the aftermath. "This is a mandatory directive" governor Fallin stated.
How could fracking have caused the quake that was felt as far away from the epicenter as Arizona and Chicago, up to 1255 miles away? Was this latest quake another sign that something massive is coming to Earth as it seemingly goes through massive 'birth pangs' across the planet? The Oklahoma quake so close to the New Madrid has also been followed by a massive series of aftershocks and is causing great concern. According to Wikipedia, between 1974 and 2011 there were more than 4,000 quakes in the New Madrid area. A ticking time bomb waiting to explode.
According to Dr. Behzad Fatahi with the UTS Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering in recent interviews, "a series of overdue, high magnitude quakes is expected to strike along the world fault lines at any moment". "No one in the world is safe" from the looming natural disasters of potentially apocalyptic proportions we are told. We hear directly from Dr. Fatahi in the new first two videos below in which he tells us why he and other experts strongly believe a series of major quakes may be in our future. Sharing that our planet is going through a series of 'bad vibrations,' we're told that the longer these major faults go without a major quake, the worse it will be when they finally release their energy.
The new story from the Kansas City Star asks "What If?" a massive New Madrid earthquake struck a highly populated area in their region. During the deadly New Madrid quake all the way back in 1811 and 1812, the population and building density in the region were absolutely minimal compared to 2016, more than 200 years later. As we see in the map below, the 6.7 New Madrid quake of 1895 was felt all across the United States, not just in the states directly surrounding the 150-mile long fault system. Imagine the damage such a quake would inflict upon a much more populated America today.
Will we soon witness the devastating series of earthquakes that Dr. Fatahi warns us of? With fracking now proven to cause earthquakes, how long will it be allowed to continue? While Oklahoma's plan to shut down more than 30 fracking wells is a start, there are still a countless number more around the country. Could fracking help 'kick off the big one'?
According to a NASA scientist interviewed in a recent story at The Express, there's a 99.9% certainty that the Los Angeles area will be struck by a huge earthquake within the next two years. According to Earthquake Track, a 5.6 magnitude quake also struck off of the coast of California the same day the 5.6 struck Oklahoma near the New Madrid. Both of the quakes were very shallow and as we learn from this story from Business Insider, shallow quakes such as the one in Italy recently can cause a tremendous amount of damage. As this story from the LA Times also tells us, Italy's quake should be looked at as a grave warning to Los Angeles and all of their old brick buildings.
As we told you back in June of 2016, the Obama administration had recently unveiled a 'FEMA Camp App' to help people find their way to a FEMA camp in case of a disaster in their communities while warning Americans to 'be prepared', telling us that we can't depend upon government for everything. While most ANP readers have been taking the necessary steps to get them through disaster striking, to hear Obama tell Americans back then what ANP readers have long known came to us as a bit of a surprise and another warning that something very bad might be ahead, so, prepare for it now rather than waiting for when it's too late. From Obama back in June.:
"It is every citizen's responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. That means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit."
"If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, we've got an app for everything now." Obama said.
"We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster. I would encourage every American, no matter where you live, to stay vigilant, to check Ready.gov regularly to make sure your family is prepared for severe weather."
Has government suddenly become 'the ultimate prepper', urging Americans to get ready for something that we pray never comes, because they know something huge is ahead? What do they know that we don't know? As we hear in the final video below, it's quite concerning that this recent quake happened so close to the New Madrid while the New Madrid is warned to be 'overdue'.
Dr. Fatahi tells us since experts can only tell when a quake is going to hit moments before it actually strikes, there is no immediate time to be able to prepare before one hits so we should be prepared long before disaster strikes. If disaster is ahead, there is no more important time than now. Being prepared now means allowing us to face any such future possibility without fear and a clear-cut plan to survive. The results we'll see from such preparation for a possibility we pray never comes will be well worth the effort that we put into it now. As Fatahi warns us, whether today, tomorrow or 5 years from now, many of the world's major fault lines are overdue to rupture, it's just a matter of time. "Sooner or later" we're once again warned.
“There are some fault lines that have not released their energy for a while.
“There are at least 5-10 that are overdue, but we don’t know when they’re going to happen.
“The question is not will they be activated. The question is when.”
Dr Fatahi said there was a “return period” for earthquakes and those that didn’t strike within the expected time frame only came back stronger. He said an example of this was the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal that left more than 8000 people dead in April last year.
“You expect a particular fault line will be activated every 100 years or 500 years,” he said.
“If the period is longer we expect higher magnitude earthquakes ... looking at the history of some of those major fault lines, some are very overdue.
“The return period has passed but the earthquakes haven’t happened. “
So we are just waiting for them to happen.”
