Swarm Of Quakes In Nevada Have Experts Concerned

By Brooke Boone – “Nevada Seismologists are keeping a close eye on an area southwest of Hawthorne, Nevada where hundreds of earthquakes have been detected since Sunday.

‘It’s a little bit concerning in a sense.. The largest earthquakes in these sequences are pretty large in size.’ Graham Kent is Director of Nevada Seismological Laboratory at the University of Nevada Reno. He says there have been hundreds of earthquakes southwest of Hawthorne over the past few days. The largest– recorded at a 4.4 in size.

‘These are the biggest in a sequence we’ve seen at least in the last couple of years.’ Kent says unlike the 2008 quakes in Somersett that damaged so many homes, these earthquakes are fortunately not underneath a community.

Size is not the only reason Kent says they are watching the swarm of quakes closely. The location of these quakes is on top of a fault that has until now remained unknown or has not been active. Kent then made an eerie comparison, ‘Whats really interesting about most of these earthquakes we’ve experienced. Short of the Chilean and Japanese; Haiti, Baha, even Christchurch.. Were on unknown faults.'”  Read more.

    I think God is talking louder and louder and noone wants to listen the nations simply ignore all of these warning signs to repent. I wonder with all f the marine life, animal life being found dead around the planet that there is not a connection. There was just another quake in NZ which shook buildings in Austrailia – these quakes and volcanoes have almost become a weekly concern – I think many of the judgments we read about in prophecy about fire will be fire from the eruptions of dorment and active volcanoes – crete in Greece has been showing a lot of activity and historically this area of the world has seen some of the most massive earthquakes and Tsnaumi’s in history – surrounding Damascus there is a very large vocanic field and there are four dorment volcanoes that if they were to erupt could be another Pompei (Google Earth) I wonder if these are not there to fulfill Is 17 ??? Just a question – thinking out loud here
