No Tsunamis After Two 8.2+ Earthquakes, But More Quakes, Part 2

 Tsunami alerts have been cancelled in the Indonesian / Indian Ocean region.  As we reported yesterday, the two huge earthquakes involved no casualties.  However, their shelf movements did cause other quakes around the world.

 According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico’s Pacific coast near Mexico City yesterday as well.  Reaching down into the ocean some 40 miles, that quake’s shaking sent thousands rushing out of offices onto the city’s streets.  Smaller quakes also hit other areas.

 The founder of theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com connects the two huge quakes in the Indian Ocean with the Mexico quakes: “As I warned in my book The Extinction Protocol, the power unleashed in these seismic events is growing. This is testament to the dangers and seriousness of the earth-changes facing us and how these events are unleashing more unbridled force with each successive eruption. The Indian Ocean strike-slip fault earthquakes are very unusual.”

 Other scientists agree with him that the strike-slip fault earthquakes in the Indian Ocean are “very unusual.” The Associated Press (AP) says:  “The massive earthquake off Indonesia surprised scientists: Usually this type of jolt isn’t this powerful.”  AP quotes Susan Hough USGS seismologist:  “It’s clear a bit of an odd duck.”  The Indian Ocean quake area is similar to California’s San Andreas Fault.

 Most powerful earthquakes result when in ‘subduction zones’ one plate pushes against another, which was the case in Japan’s massive quake last year.  But yesterday’s quakes are referred to as ‘strike-slip quakes’ because enormous sections of rocks slide “horizontally past each other.”

 Kevin Furlong, Geo-sciences professor at Penn State University, explains:  “A week ago, we wouldn’t have thought we could have a strike-slip earthquake of this size. This is very, very large.”

 In fact, USGS ranks yesterdays quakes as record setting, saying that it may well be the largest strike-ship quake in known history.  AP adds that this region has been rattled by three strong strike-slip quakes recently, but this was the largest.

 EP concludes:  “Just so we understand the significance of what transpired today; the Japanese March 11, 2011 earthquake move the ocean floor 79 feet sideways and 10 ft upwards, but today’s earthquakes happened in double 8.0+ magnitude sequence and moved the earth nearly as far. Worst, the seismic tension from the event ricocheted around the world and contributed to other earthquakes.”

 In Amos chapter 4, God tells Israel that He had sent them warning after warning that it was time to repent, but the nation would not listen.  Finally, He tells them:  “prepare to meet thy God (4: 12).”  In view of these earth shattering quakes, that message should blare on billboards and plus size Christian t-shirts everywhere!
