African Earthquakes Shift Into Middle East

Two large earthquakes in Africa create movement in the Indian Ocean and in the Middle East.

Two days ago, I posted a blog about two large earthquakes in Uganda, Africa, and I wrote:

Keep an eye out for more quakes in this region because they may be a signal that large movements are setting up in the Indian Ocean, east of Africa, in the Middle Eastern regions, and north of Africa in the Mediterranean Sea.

Well, it happened two days later on July 5, 2013 – three quakes hit east and north of Africa.

  1. 4.7 – Mid-Indian Ridge
  2. 4.8 – Yemen
  3. 4.5  – Yemen

Now, keep an eye on Greece.

Uncommon Quakes

Even though Uganda’s East African Rift Valley is one of the most active earthquake zones in East Africa, it is not common for Uganda to experience large earthquakes. When I saw two large quakes occurring within hours of one another on July 3, 2013, I figured that this signaled movement yet to come east and north of Africa.

And, it did.

The Indian Ocean is an area that experiences many strong earthquakes, and in 2004, the Sumatra megaquake spawned the devastating tsunami that slammed into Sri Lanka and southern India. When I see movement in Africa, I watch for movement in the Indian Ocean and in the Middle East.

The Middle East

Two earthquakes strike in Yemen two days after the Ugandan quakes.

Frequent and large earthquakes are also unusual in the Middle East, but they are beginning to occur more often these days, and this is something we need to watch carefully.

A Biblical scholar once told me that the End Times were near when a tsunami hits the Middle East. I am not one for apocalyptic predictions, but a Middle East tsunami is a possibility in the near future. Especially as more quakes strike in countries along the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea, like Yemen.

All we can do is wait and see.



Natural Disasters Ramping Up Around Mediterranean Sea and Saudi Arabia

When the Earth’s mantle shifts, the poles follow. – Albert Einstein, 1955

Earthquakes, volcanoes, and storms are increasing in and around the Mediterranean Sea, but according to an article by ABC News, many scientists are oddly puzzled by this.

It’s No Mystery

Throughout history, Mt. Etna has been one of the most fascinating volcanoes in the world. The volcano towers 3,329 meters (10,922 feet) above the Sicilian city of Catania.

The volcano is located at the precise spot where the African and European tectonic plates rub against each other. At this boundary location, lava continuously flows into the base of Mt. Etna, and today, Etna is releasing lava more violently than it has in many years.

What’s happening to cause this sudden eruption and increase in volcanic activity? The Earth’s axis is shifting, and this causes a shift in the crust all over the planet.

THIS shift causes:

  1. large earthquakes to occur globally (as we are witnessing today),
  2. a shift in the global wind patterns (which we are witnessing today),
  3. larger and more unpredictable storm patterns (that we are witnessing today),
  4. global warming (as we are witnessing today),
  5. an increase in extraterrestrial objects hitting the Earth (that we are witnessing today),
  6. an increase in volcanic eruptions (which we are witnessing today).

Watching Etna

German geophysicist Rolf Schick stated in the ABC article: “The stream of magma doesn’t move uniformly, but in spurts, vibrating as if it were in a hydraulic pump. This makes Etna so unpredictable.”

Using seismic sensors, Schick discovered that the stream of magma from Etna has a “pulse rate” of sorts, which is forced through the volcano’s vents at a rate of about 72 beats per minute —  a rate similar to that of the human heartbeat.

Hum, this proves that all life on Earth resonates WITH the Earth. When the Earth shifts, we shift. When the Earth heats up, we heat up … This comes as no surprise.

5.7 Quake in Yemen

On May 27, 2013, a 5.7 earthquake struck off the coast of Yemen, south of Saudi Arabia. The increase in earthquake activity in this area is occurring at the same time volcanic eruptions are increasing in the Mediterranean Sea.

Coincidence? Of course not.

Earthquakes will continue to strike around the Arabian Plate as the African Plate continues to push against the European Plate.  The Arabian and Indian Plates will respond with an increase in volcanic and earthquake activity.

Look for more volcanic eruptions, more earthquakes, and a tsunami or two in this region.

Mount Etna is a barometer … this comes as no surprise.



Earthquakes Increase In Middle East Amid Political Tension

While political tension in the Middle East increases, no one is paying attention to the fact that the Earth is building up pressure off their borders. Many people do not understand that the Earth is much more powerful than humans, and this may soon become evident as earthquakes increase in the Middle East. The chance that a tsunami could flood this area is very real. No one is paying attention to this possibility.

Earthquakes Continue In The Middle East

Eathquakes continue to rattle Iran along the Persian Gulf and along the Iran- Pakistan border. On May 5, 2103, the tension increased along the Arabian Plate when a 4.9 magnitude quake shook the Gulf of Aden, south of the Red Sea.

The Arabian Plate

The Arabian Plate and the Eurasia plate are colliding, and over time, many cities and oil refineries will be in danger of destruction from earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes. The Arabian Plate was part of the African Plate about 500 million years ago. As the plates spread apart, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Persian Gulf formed. As more earthquakes occur in these areas today, it is a reminder to us all that this area is unstable, geologically, and countries should rethink where they concentrate their populations, how they construct their cities, and where they position power plants and nuclear facilities.

Maybe if we focus more on upcoming Earth changes, we might reconsider how we handle the present “human conflicts” this area faces today.
