Cascadia’s Locked Fault Means Massive Earthquake Is Due in Pacific Northwest

12/17/2014 09:24
The Cascadia fault in the Pacific Northwest is locked up, meaning that a massive megathrust earthquake could occur at any time, seismologists are warning. “It’s impossible to know exactly when the next Cascadia earthquake will occur,” said Evelyn Roeloffs of the U.S. Geological Survey, speaking...

Oklahoma now leads nation in earthquakes

Geologists discover widespread seismic activity

11/30/2014 19:07
Using a 140-station seismic network, geologists with Indiana University have discovered widespread seismic activity along the Ste.

Giant sinkhole swallows up old mine in Russia's Urals

11/21/2014 07:44
A sinkhole 20 by 30 meters (65 by 98 feet) in size has been found near a Uralkali mine in Russia's Perm region.

Gateway to Hell: Sinkholes open across the Earth

11/13/2014 07:34
People visit “The Gateway to Hell,” a huge burning gas crater in the heart of Turkmenistan’s Karakum desert, on May 3, 2014. The fiery pit was the result of a simple miscalculation by Soviet scientists in 1971 after their boring equipment suddenly drilled through into an underground cavern and a...

A swarm of earthquakes buzzes underground in Nevada

11/10/2014 07:24

4 California Faults Are Ready to Rupture

10/14/2014 21:55
With several faults slicing through the San Francisco Bay Area, forecasting the next deadly earthquake becomes a question of when and where, not if. Now researchers propose that four faults have built up enough seismic strain (stored energy) to unleash destructive earthquakes, according to a study...

California overdue for major earthquake that could cripple water supply system

10/14/2014 07:38
Three fault segments running beneath Northern California and its roughly 15 million people are overdue for a major earthquake, including one that lies northeast of San Francisco and near the dams and canals that supply much of the state’s water, according to a geological study published...

Calm Before the Quake? Turkey May Be Due for the Big One

09/18/2014 21:18
 A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7 or greater may be building up along a now-quiet fault on the coast of Istanbul, a new study finds. Different segments of the North Anatolian Fault, one of the most energetic and longest earthquake faults in the world, have fallen silent. This silence may...

Earthquakes

We aren't promised to know the exact day or time for when the end will come, but just as we know the signs for seasonal changes, we can "read" certain signs that help us to know that we are entering the season for the rapture of the church, the tribulation, and His return to earth. In Jesus' discourse about the endtimes in Matthew 24, one of those signs are earthquakes. For some of Prophecy Dude's teaching on earthquakes, go to the "Tags" section on the News and Tweets page and click on earthquakes. There you will find a list of blogs that treat that subject.

On this page you will find updated feeds on earthquakes over the previous seven days with magnitudes of 5 and greater. A map feed is also provided to assist with identifying the location of these earthquakes. The picture below illustrates the concentration of earthquakes along fault lines and continental plate borders. Often Volcanoes are associated with tectonic plates especially in areas where they "rub' one another.
