We definitely have already seen quite a bit of “shaking” in 2017, and the new year has only just begun.  Since New Year’s Eve, there have been more than 250 earthquakes near the border between California and Mexico.  These quakes appear to be centered around the town of Brawley, which is only about 30 miles away from the San Andreas fault.  But even before the new year began there was a tremendous amount of shaking in the region. 

In fact, on December 28th the Daily Mail reported that almost 700 earthquakes had shaken California and Nevada over the previous week. 

Many experts are concerned that all of this shaking could be leading up to “the Big One”, and a lot of people living in southern California are deeply alarmed right at this moment.

The area where these latest earthquakes have been happening is known as “the Brawley Seismic Zone”.  It actually connects the San Andreas fault with the Imperial fault, and according to the Los Angeles Times, scientists tell us that this is a place where “the Earth’s crust is getting stretched out”…

The earthquakes struck in the southern end of the Brawley Seismic Zone, a seismically active region where tectonic plates are moving away from each other and the Earth’s crust is getting stretched out “and basically adding land,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson.

The Brawley Seismic Zone is particularly important to watch because it is the region that connects the San Andreas and Imperial faults, both of which can produce damaging earthquakes. The seismic zone extends for about 30 miles from the city of Brawley, across the Salton Sea’s southern half, and ends near Bombay Beach.

Fortunately this latest earthquake swarm occurred at the southern end of the Brawley Seismic Zone and not the northern end.  Because as the Los Angeles Times tells us, quakes on the northern end can potentially “trigger a major event on the San Andreas fault”…

Earthquake swarms that occur in the other end of the Brawley Seismic Zone — to the north — could trigger a major event on the San Andreas fault, one of California’s most dangerous, that could send catastrophic shaking into Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.

In late September, one such swarm began in the northern Brawley Seismic Zone, with three measuring above magnitude 4. That event led the U.S. Geological Survey to warn that chances of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake on the San Andreas fault had risen as a result of the swarm.

Hopefully this current surge in earthquake activity will not lead to a major catastrophic event.

But experts assure us that it is inevitable that a major catastrophic event will hit the region someday.  For example, just consider what Thomas Jordan recently told a stunned audience at one conference

Experts have warned that the fault line has been quiet for far too long and is due to erupt at any time.

Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Centre, told a conference in Long Beach: “The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go.”

Seismologists have said that over the past 1,400 to 1,500 monster earthquakes have ruptured at 150-year intervals.

And scientists are discovering that the great earthquake that is coming to southern California could ultimately end up being far more devastating than they had originally been anticipating.  In a previous piece, I quoted a Fox News article which talked about a major study that came to the conclusion that the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”…

For years, scientists believed the mighty San Andreas—the 800-mile-long fault running the length of California where the Pacific and North American plates meet—could only rupture in isolated sections.

But a recent study by federal, state and academic researchers showed that much of the fault could unzip all at once, unleashing a rare, singular catastrophe. Now, insurers have used that research to come up with a new analysis of the damage that could be caused by statewide break of the San Andreas.

I don’t what is going to happen next, but just as I have been writing this article there have been more earthquakes in California and Nevada.

Throughout 2016 our planet showed that it is becoming increasingly unstable, and 2017 is already starting off with a whole lot of shaking going on.

At some point a catastrophic earthquake is going to occur, and it may happen when we least expect it.

Michael T. Snyder One of the most common questions I get asked is this: “Who are you?” Well, I would rather let the issues take center stage, but I don’t mind telling you a little bit about myself. My name is Michael and I am just a regular guy who is married to one of the most wonderful women in the world. I have an undergraduate degree in Commerce from the University of Virginia and I have a law degree from the University of Florida law school. I also have an LLM from the University of Florida law school. I once worked for some of the largest law firms in Washington D.C., but now I mostly focus on trying to make a difference in the world. I am the author of all of the articles on the Economic Collapse Blog, and End of The American Dream Blog. I put a lot of work into these articles, and it means a lot that so many people out there enjoy them. I do not belong to a political party. In fact, I rip both the Democrats and the Republicans pretty good. I am a very strong Christian, but I believe that most of the churches in America have gotten way off track. I believe that God is raising up Christians that will do things the way that the first Christians did things. I am also a writer, a speaker and an activist. Someone once told me that life is like a coin – you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once. I believe that this is going to be one of the most dramatic eras in all of human history and I want my life to have meaning and purpose. Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, one of the most important things to me is love. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another. The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.

Well, I am a Bible-believing Christian. Unfortunately, most people do not know what Biblical Christianity is these days. For a detailed explanation of what I believe, please see my statement of faith. Some of you may not even know about the God of the Bible or that He sent his Son to die on the cross for your sins. The truth is that the God of the universe loves you very much and He wants to have a relationship with you. Unfortunately, humanity has rebelled against God. The Scriptures tell us that we all have violated God’s laws and that we all have sinned against Him. We stand guilty before the judge of the universe. God could not ignore our sins, but He still wanted to have a relationship with us. So God sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay the price for the sins of all humanity. If you will repent of your sins and invite Jesus Christ into your life right now, your sins will be forgiven and you will be given eternal life.
