Former NASA & White House Advisor Warns of Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions & New Madrid Event!

Why Is Wal-Mart Preparing For A Major Earthquake On The New Madrid Fault?

TheSurvivalPlaceBlog

By Michael Snyder

Buried in a Wall Street Journal article from about a week ago was a startling piece of information.  According to a Wal-Mart executive, Wal-Mart “participated in an exercise to prepare for an earthquake on the New Madrid fault line” earlier this summer.  And officials at the U.S. Geological Survey have just released a report which indicates that they believe that the New Madrid fault zone has the “potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought“.  So should we be concerned?  Do they know something that we don’t?  The USGS also says that the frequency of earthquakes in the central and eastern portions of the United States has quintupled over the past 30 years, and that significant earthquakes have started popping up in areas of the country that were once extremely quiet.  Along with the new report, the USGS released the following…

Chaos Sweeps Away the World We Know! The Disaster, current events & Catastrophe Blog. Forecasts for 2014 to 2022. Read tomorrows news today! Plus current economic, commodities, stock indices and financial news.

April 22, 2014Locked, Cocked and Ready to Rock! Sunday (April 20) the “gun” was loaded with Jupiter square Uranus and Jupiter opposite Pluto; and Uranus square Pluto yesterday. Today the gun will be cocked with Mars square Jupiter. Tomorrow the gun will be fired when either PNG or the U.S. Pacific Northwest is struck by the strongest earthquake of the 21st or 20th Century. Mars will “pull the trigger” on April 23 at 12:09AM (Mars opposite Uranus) and 6:47AM (Mars square Pluto). I believe that the 6:47AM time will be the stronger of the two, i.e., this will set off the whole process.

On the map, the two regions are opposite each other. A 9.8 magnitude earthquake, in either of these locations, will be biblical and catastrophic on a scale not see in modern history. An event of this magnitude in the U.S. NW would through the…

Let the Games Begin!

Chaos Sweeps Away the World We Know! The Disaster, current events & Catastrophe Blog. Forecasts for 2014 to 2022. Read tomorrows news today! Plus current economic, commodities, stock indices and financial news.

April 21, 2014Let the Games Begin: The four days of terror have started. From April 20 to 24 will see a 9.8 magnitude earthquake near Paupa New Guinea (PNG) or a release of near the Cascadia Fault Zone of the U.S. Pacific Northwest from 8.9 to 9.4 magnitude.

The Island of New Guinea is the second largest in the world, after Greenland; and is divided into the Indonesian West and the PNG East. The series of large quakes that have occurred in PNG, and the Solomon Islands, are shown on the map above, just under the “24 Quakes in 23 Days” banner. If the Super-Quake sends the tsunami to the west, the Philippines are gone and Japan is severally damaged along with most of Southeast Asia. If the tsunami is to the east then North America, Mexico, Latin America, Peru and Chile are in serious trouble.

These three earthquakes in the South Atlantic Ocean signal the eruptions of the following…….

These three earthquakes in the South Atlantic Ocean signal the eruptions of Mount Etna in Italy, Mount Vesuvius in Sicily or Mount Pelee on the French Caribbean Island of Martinique in the Lesser Antilles. Three months after the eruptions, Japan will be struck by massive earthquakes and tsunamis and go into the sea, much as Atlantis did 12,000 years ago. Several months after this, the San Andreas Fault will rupture from the Salton Sea in Southern California, through San Francisco and off the north coast of California; destroying or severely damaging most major cities from San Diego to north of San Francisco. This will trigger the release of the Juan de Fuca plate system, off the coast of Oregon and Washington State and completely destroy Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia. The volcanoes of the Cascade Range will explode in fiery congruence with the end times.

After the west coast of North America is devastated, the obliteration of the east coast of the United States will begin. First to go will be the coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina, followed by the annihilation of New York City and the Tri-State Area. Subsequent to those events will see massive earthquakes in the New Madrid area of Missouri, in the central U.S.

During this cataclysm, there will be rising and falling of large land masses in North America. In the end, The Great Lakes will empty into the Gulf of Mexico. Great tsunamis will inundate the large population centers around the world, killing billions!

The entire world will see massive earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and tsunamis; as God destroys those who follow the “darkness” of lust, greed, power and control and save those who follow the “light” of love and truth, joy and bliss and mercy and grace.

If the powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake that occurred today is a precursor to the end times, I have provided a road map to signs and signals to watch out for. The chain of global signals could very well countdown to April 2014, which is the month and year I have long feared.

It seems to me that a number of events are lining up that indicate a “significant global adjustment period” as Edgar Cayce would label it. This adjustment period involves global conflict, droughts and floods, food riots, pestilence and disease.

The events taking place in the Philippines are but a precursor to greater global problems yet to come.

I urge you all to prepare for the end times in the best way you can. At the very least I would stock up on canned food, flash lights, water and batteries

The New Madrid Seismic Zone is at Significant Risk for Damaging Earthquakes

 

October 20, 2013 – The New Madrid Seismic Zone is at Significant Risk for Damaging Earthquakes: This map shows earthquakes (circles) of the New Madrid and Wabash Valley seismic zones (orange patches). Red circles indicate earthquakes that occurred from 1974 to 2002 with magnitudes larger than 2.5 located using modern instruments (University of Memphis). Green circles denote earthquakes that occurred prior to 1974 (USGS Professional Paper 1527). Larger earthquakes are represented by larger circles.

A Sequence of Three Main Shocks in 1811-1812:

This sequence of three very large earthquakes is usually referred to as the New Madrid earthquakes, after the Missouri town that was the largest settlement on the Mississippi River between St. Louis, Missouri and Natchez, Mississippi. On the basis of the large area of damage (600,000 square kilometers), the widespread area of perceptibility (5,000,000 square kilometers), and the complex physiographic changes that occurred, the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 rank as some of the largest in the United States since its settlement by Europeans. They were by far the largest east of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. and Canada. The area of strong shaking associated with these shocks is two to three times as large as that of the 1964 Alaska earthquake and 10 times as large as that of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Because there were no seismographs in North America at that time, and very few people in the New Madrid region, the estimated magnitudes of this series of earthquakes vary considerably and depend on modern researchers’ interpretations of journals, newspaper reports, and other accounts of the ground shaking and damage.

1811, December 16, 08:15 UTC Northeast Arkansas – the first main shock – 2:15 am local time – Magnitude ~7.7 : 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, South Carolina. 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, Tennessee, and Louisville, Kentucky. 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 in great convulsion with sand and water ejected tens of feet into the air (liquefaction).

1811, December 16, 13:15 UTC Northeast Arkansas – the “Dawn” Aftershock – 7:15 am local time – Magnitude ~7.0: A large event felt on the East Coast that is sometimes regarded as the fourth principal earthquake of the 1811-1812 sequence. The event is described as “severe” at New Bourbon, Missouri, and was described by boatman John Bradbury, who was moored to a small island south of New Madrid, as “terrible, but not equal to the first”. Hough believes that this large aftershock occurred around dawn in the New Madrid region near the surface projection of the Reelfoot fault.

1812, January 23, 15:15 UTC, New Madrid, Missouri – 9:15 am local time – Magnitude ~7.5: The second principal shock of the 1811-1812 sequence. It is difficult to assign intensities to the principal shocks that occurred after 1811 because many of the published accounts describe the cumulative effects of all the earthquakes and because the Ohio River was iced over, so there was little river traffic and fewer human observers. Using the December 16 earthquake as a standard, however, there is a general consensus that this earthquake was the smallest of the three principals. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks.

1812, February 7, 09:45 UTC, New Madrid, Missouri – 3:45 am local time – Magnitude ~7.7: The third principal earthquake of the 1811-1812 series. Several destructive shocks occurred on February 7, the last of which equaled or surpassed the magnitude of any previous event. The town of New Madrid was destroyed. At St. Louis, many houses were damaged severely and their chimneys were thrown down. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks. (Credits – USGS).
