There is a whole lot of shaking going on in America right now, and many people are concerned about what that could potentially mean. Could it be possible that the U.S. is entering a more seismically active time? Jesus told his disciples in the Olivet Discourse that in the end times, just before His return to earth, there would be an increase in earthquakes. This week alone, we have seen earthquake swarms in Texas, Oklahoma, San Francisco and the New Madrid fault zone.
In just over 12 hours, Texas experienced not one earthquake, but four, experts say. Three quakes were centred near the town of Snyder — just south of the Texas panhandle — with a fourth centred near the Fort Worth area, according to the United States Geological Survey. The first and strongest of the cluster hit just after 4:45 p.m. Monday about 12 miles north of Snyder and measured magnitude 4.0.
That was the strongest earthquake in Texas so far this year. Over the past 24 hours, the state has experienced nine earthquakes of at least magnitude 1.5, and over the past seven days there have been 40 such earthquakes.
Meanwhile, we have been witnessing unusual earthquake activity in Oklahoma as well. Decades ago, Oklahoma was very quiet geologically, but things sure have changed over the past few years. If you can believe it, there have already been more than 1,000 earthquakes of at least magnitude 1.5 in Oklahoma so far in 2019.
Unusual seismic activity is also occurring along the California coast. This week, a swarm of five moderate earthquakes in the San Francisco area made headlines all over the nation.
A swarm of tiny temblors shook up California’s East Bay over the past 24 hours, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.
The agency reported at least five quakes registering from 2.0 to 2.9 magnitude, along with a slew of even smaller temblors registering below 2.0 magnitude. The swarm centred on Dublin and San Ramon on the east side of San Francisco Bay.
Those earthquakes didn’t really cause any significant damage, but the concern is that all of this shaking could be leading up to something. Moreover, scientists assure us that “the Big One” is way overdue and that at some point our time will run out.
Last but certainly not least, an earthquake swarm just hit the New Madrid fault zone as well.
In less than an hour on Monday morning, southeastern Missouri was hit by five significant earthquakes. It started with a 2.6 magnitude temblor around 11:18 a.m. near Lilbourn, a small city just north of Missouri’s boot heel, according to the United States Geological Survey. A mere three minutes later, a 1.1 magnitude quake rumbled nearby. Just before 11:30 a.m., a 2.7 magnitude quake rattled southwest of Lilbourn followed by a 1.8 magnitude quake only five minutes later, the USGS says. It would be 23 minutes before the next quake, another magnitude 2.7, shook an area just west of Lilbourn, the USGS says.
