Scientists tell us that someday the “Big One” will strike California and large portions of the coastline will plunge into the ocean “almost instantly”. Could it be possible that we are a lot closer to that day than many had anticipated? Over the past several days, there has been a lot of shaking along the North American portion of the Ring of Fire. In particular, during a 24 hour period over the weekend one area of the California coastline was hit by 10 earthquakes of at least magnitude 3.0, and this created such a stir that it made the front page of the Drudge Report. The following comes from a local California newspaper…
Could you imagine the immense devastation that would take place if a giant wall of water 80 feet high slammed into the west coast of the United States? It may not happen today or tomorrow, but scientists assure us that it will definitely happen one day, and at this point we are completely and utterly unprepared for such a disaster. The “Ring of Fire” is becoming increasingly active in 2018, and the death toll from the earthquake and tsunami that just struck Indonesia is now above 1,300. And we all remember the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people. Now we are being told that something like that could happen on our side of the Pacific Ocean, and the mainstream media is even warning us that a giant tsunami could slam into the west coast “without warning”. Should we take such a statement seriously?
Over the years, many people have been shown that someday a giant earthquake will cause significant portions of California to fall into the ocean. But up until now, most scientists have disputed the idea that this could ever actually happen. Well, now all of that has changed. According to a brand new study, a megaquake along the west coast “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”. In fact, the researchers that conducted this study say that it is almost certain to happen eventually. Of course they probably don’t believe that such an event is imminent or else they would be moving out of the state like so many other people are.
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.
Why would anyone want to live in the state of California at this point? Not only do you have to deal with unbearable traffic, insane politicians and unchecked illegal immigration, but now the weather itself seems to be going crazy. A very strong El Nino has been sending destructive storm after destructive storm barreling into the west coast, and this is causing tremendous flooding, dangerous landslides and unprecedented erosion in coastal communities all over the state. As I mentioned the other day, a state of emergency has just been declared in the coastal city of Pacifica due to the incredible amount of erosion that is happening there. Now, incredible footage has been released that actually shows the coastline crumbling. Small parts of California really are falling into the ocean, and meteorologists are warning that the worst may be yet to come.
