The Ring Of Fire Is Roaring To Life And There Will Be Earthquakes Of Historic Importance On The West Coast Of The United States

Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

Does it seem to you like there has been an unusual amount of seismic activity around the world lately?  Well, it isn't just your imagination.  The Ring of Fire is roaring to life and that is really bad news for the west coast of the United States.

Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire.

Considering the fact that the entire west coast of the United States lies along the Ring of Fire, we should be very concerned that the Ring of Fire is becoming more active.  On Wednesday, the most powerful strike-slip earthquake ever recorded happened along the Ring of Fire.  If that earthquake had happened in a major U.S. city along the west coast, the city would have been entirely destroyed.

Scientists tell us that there is nearly a 100% certainty that the "Big One" will hit California at some point.  In recent years we have seen Japan, Chile, Indonesia and New Zealand all get hit by historic earthquakes.  It is inevitable that there will be earthquakes of historic importance on the west coast of the United States as well.  So far we have been very fortunate, but that good fortune will not last indefinitely.

In a previous article, I showed that earthquakes are becoming more frequent around the globe.  In 2001, there were 137 earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or greater and in 2011 there were 205.  The charts and data that I presented in that previous article show a clear upward trend in large global earthquakes over the past decade, and that is why what happened this week is so alarming.

On Wednesday, a magnitude 8.6 earthquake struck off the coast of Indonesia and that was rapidly followed by a magnitude 8.2 earthquake off the coast of Indonesia.  Fortunately those gigantic earthquakes did not produce a devastating tsunami, but that doesn't mean that those earthquakes were not immensely powerful.

Normally we only see about one earthquake of magnitude 8.0 or greater per year.  The magnitude 8.6 earthquake was the most powerful strike-slip earthquake in recorded history.  If that earthquake had happened in the United States, it would have probably been the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.

The following is from an article posted on The Extinction Protocol....
I’ve never heard of a strike-slip lateral earthquake of this great a magnitude; especially under water. Preliminary assessment of the Indonesian quakes by U.S. geologists suggests one plate lurched past each other as much as 70 feet. San Andreas is a strike-slip, lateral -- can we even imagine two sections of ground moving 70 feet near San Francisco? Had the force of the Sumatra quakes been unleashed upon San Andreas, the city would have been completely destroyed.
And earthquake activity along the west coast has definitely been heating up in recent days. On Wednesday, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck approximately 160 miles off of the coast of Oregon.

Early on Thursday, there were two major earthquakes (magnitude 6.9 and magnitude 6.2) in the Gulf of California.

It is only a matter of time before the "Big One" hits California.

Sadly, most Americans (especially young Americans) can't even tell you what the Ring of Fire is.

The following is how Wikipedia defines the "Ring of Fire"....
The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements.
The entire west coast of the United States falls along the Ring of Fire and a massive network of faults runs underneath California, Oregon and Washington.

At this point, scientists tell us that the west coast is long overdue for a major earthquake.  An article in Time Magazine a few years ago stated the following....
California has more than 300 faults running beneath its surface, including the massive San Andreas Fault, yet the quake to end all quakes has yet to occur. In 1980, a federal report declared the likelihood of a major earthquake striking California within the next 30 years to be 'well in excess of 50%.'
Unfortunately, the truth is that is a very, very conservative estimate.  The west coast has always been extremely unstable and it always will be.  At some point there is going to be a tragedy of unimaginable proportions on the west coast.

Just hope that you are not there when it happens.

But it isn't just California, Oregon and Washington that should be concerned.

According to the Arizona Geological Survey, there were 131 earthquakes in the state of Arizona in 2011.  That was a huge increase from just 53 in 2010.

And of course an absolutely nightmarish earthquake could occur along the New Madrid fault at any time, but that is a topic for another article.

As far as the Ring of Fire is concerned, another major threat is volcanic activity.

One of these days, one or more of the major volcanoes on the west coast is going to experience a major eruption again.  There have been signs that Mt. Rainier has been becoming more active, and a major eruption of Mt. Rainier could potentially be absolutely devastating for much of the northwest United States.

Of even greater concern along the Ring of Fire is Mt. Fuji.  As I wrote about the other day, Mt. Fuji has been dormant for about 300 years but is now rapidly roaring to life.  New craters have appeared and these new craters are venting gas.  There has been a swarm of earthquakes under Mt. Fuji this year, including a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on March 15th.

If Mt. Fuji were to experience a full-blown eruption, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic.  Mt. Fuji is not too far from Tokyo -- one of the most densely populated cities on the entire planet.  The loss of life resulting from a full-blown eruption of Mt. Fuji would be almost unimaginable.

But it is not just along the Ring of Fire that we are seeing a rise in volcanic activity.  The truth is that we are seeing a rise in volcanic activity all over the globe.  The following are just a couple of recent examples which have been in the news....

*The volcanoes in Iceland that caused such huge problems a few years ago are becoming very active once again.

*Authorities in Colombia have declared a "red alert" and believe that an eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano is imminent.

*Ash is venting at the world famous Anak Krakatau volcano in Indonesia.

Something really strange is going on.

Most scientists will deny it or will attempt to downplay it until they are blue in the face, but the truth is that the trembling of our planet is getting worse.

If this shaking continues to get worse, there are going to be some absolutely horrific tragedies in the years ahead.

So do you have a theory for why there is so much seismic activity happening along the Ring of Fire?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below....

The theory I have seen discussed and also makes sense is that global temperatures are below average and continue to lower based off of NCEP monitoring. Artic and Antartic ice extent is higher than say 10 year ago. A cooling globe would contribute to more surface rigidness and this can be seen/felt along the plates.

Eritrea and Italy had volcanoe eruptions as well within just this week as well. They are also gearing up for another eruption in Iceland because of increased activity beneath iceland.

So, its not just the ring of fire. It's global just like the article says. The earth is definately active right now.

I have a theory what is causing this increase in volcanic activity, a neutron star and planet x.

Anonymous said...

I do believe that it is magnetics and cosmic rays contributing to the larger earthquakes. Considering we are heading into an increased solar activity period, I fear this will only increase.

Hmmm..I will be up in West Yellowstone, Montana this spring for a seasonal job (yippee a job at last!) and considering there is a super volcano right next door..well if it happens at least it will be quick! :D

I apologise if I am being pessimistic. For those who believe in God, He is the Creator while all others are the Creations only. Nothing is immortal except The Creator. We are living in an age whereby the end times are nearing. The world is getting old and it is now suffering from chronic illnesses that nothing can cure. We have to brave ourselves for the worst and get prepared to meet our Creator in the near future.

May God save us all.

It is because of the weakening and shifting of the earths magnetic field. We are due for a magnetic reversal and all the indicators are happening.

END TIMES? I have news for you, the world ended and you missed it TWICE! See 2 Peter 3:6 "The world that then was, perished in the flood." and Hebrews 9:26 tells us Jesus was crucified "in the end of the world" but "The earth abideth forever." Ec.1:4. Far too many believe preachers and not enough believe the Bible!

All the above, but the source of all the sources can be gleaned from this: Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.

The Earth is in a 33 year Volcanism that is causing the incresae in quakes and weather patterns. We are half way into what will be unpresidented. Everyone must get prepared no one I repeat no one is safe!

Anonymous said...

..Winsmith...What version of the Bible are you using? The KJV version is the best translation. You are not interpreting the verses right.

2Peter 3:6-7
6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

26For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

4One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

The earth will be destroyed 3 times. 2Peter 3:6-7 is referring to what the world was like before the flood and after the flood, and the second time will be by fire, not when Jesus was crucified on the cross.

The Bible says there shall be earthquakes...He did not say He would be the causingbthe earthquakes. I believe the earthquakes were created by man in the ring of fire by means of HAARP. These areas have the fault lines and are weak and they are using haarp to create the instabilities to cause the big one. They are creating these "unusual" amount of tornados all across the country with haarp. Go to youtube and watch Dutchsince videos on all these haarp rings and the earthquakes and tornados it is creating.

I spoke to USGS scientist Jim Berkland about this very thing just last week. He's extremely concerned about a west coast EQ.

Yes. But I differ slightly:

If the quakes/volcanoes are serious, and they are, there won't be any history about it. We'll be back like the pre-civilizations of very ancient times..where we vaguely know abot them. We'll be like the Greek Dark Ages apprx 8000 B.C.

Global environmental warfare is real.
This means that earthquakes, droughts and floods can be used as weapons. The atmosphere over the USA, Canada, Australia, Japan and Europe is continually saturated with aerosols containing barium and other toxic substances utilized by the new geophysical arsenal.

Chemtrails = Aerosol spraying to change the atmosphere.

Well, its always needed to distinguish between unsupported alarm and a good reasoning based on data analysis and available knowledge. An increase in seismic activity, as it seems is being registered, is an unexpected change that deserves research, but on the other hand it shows the stress that is apparently building up in rocks is releasing itself in a slow, 'soft' way at the same time. One can say it would be worse if that stress was building up without significant release.

It is easy - Sol and its planets are about to cross the galatic plane. As it crosses this geometry, it is also crossing a field of increased energy including magnetism. This effects our star and our planet. To what degree earthquakes, volcanism on Earth will increase or other events for our star, Sol, no one can say, but it doesn't look good does it? D. Peed, W.

Just a thought, we seem to be draining the lubricant(oil, life blood) out of the earth causing more friction to build up leading to larger earthquakes. Just a thought.

D. Koss Uber said...

Recently news was reported that "A team of scientists from Purdue and Stanford universities has found that the decay of radioactive isotopes fluctuates in synch with the rotation of the sun's core."

So in my opinion the sun is causing the huge amount of radioactive elements in the earth’s interior to decay faster, producing more heat, causing the thermal expansion of the molten mass, causing pressure to build up, causing earthquakes.

WHAPIS = What Happens If??? = WHAPIS

I did weather modeling for many years starting in the 1970s. On big computers, what one can say is that the weather changes. And there are 4 seasons in the places with 4 seasons.

One would have to see at least 1000 years of data.

Pretty interesting isn't it?
The Gulf is still being spayed with Corexit killing the ocean. Fukushima is a danger to all life on the planet. The nuclear weapons used and being used in the MidEast will be wiping out lives for generations. Monsanto is destroying our ability to grow healthy food. The senseless waste of aquifers world wide is eliminating the source of life giving water. The magnetic pulse of the Earth is the lowest in recorded history heading for a pole reversal. So what/who is causing the EQs?? Why are the Volcanos active...perhaps the Earth is really pissed at us and letting the consequence of our behavior roll on to its conclusion.

The quakes and turmoil are because God's word said it would happen. These things are the beginning of sorrows, the beginning of the birth pains for the 2nd coming. This is not the end of the world, but is the harbinger of a terrible time coming onto the world. A time of disaster heaped upon disaster.
The world will choose the anti-christ who will torture and kill anyone who does not worship him.

The Bible says that if the real God of Heaven doesn't put a stop to the evil and shorten its duration, there would be no flesh left upon the earth.

Pray, and turn your faith to Jesus. Do what he calls you to do, which is to love God (only one) with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.

There will always be secular non-religious reasons which appear to be the cause, but remember it stems from spiritual things. Just as Judas appeared motivated by 30 pieces of silver in the natural world, the real prime mover was that Judas was influenced by evil.

I have been closely following earthquakes for 20 years. This is a significant uptick and the USGS is silent. What the heck is going on at the USGS?
They are worthless as dirt. You can bet that if there is ever a natural disaster looming we will get no help from any of these government agencies. Groups of citizen militias should be allowed to control these agencies and run out all the fat hogs eating all our tax dollars.

JTD said...

I am perplexed why the news medias aren't encouraging people to prepare for natural disasters. Clearly earthquakes, tornados, and other natural disasters are increasing in amplitude and magnitude. April 12 Amarilla, Texas experienced 4 feet of hail...!

Necessary provisions should be stored up by every family and individuals. The governments of the world have ineffective during natural disasters and if the severity of the swarm of recent increases governments aids will be nonexistent. Be prepared!

The Bible foretells a time when 100 pound hail stones fall to earth and they are on fire!!! Frozen methane? Perhaps the earth is running its course. May I suggest hang on to your hat its going to be quite a ride.

The Earth is a living, physical, spiritual entity and we are the fruit of Her. We are an extension of Gaia and bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth much like a tree does. When we heal ourselves, we heal the Earth and so on. Gaia is shaking off some leftover karma that we have not been able to transmute for Her. This is in preparation for the coming Golden Age where the Earth will shift from 3rd density to 5th density and we ( who so wish), with Her. It is normal, so to speak, and nothing to freak out about, in fact freaking out is the big danger here. We've been preparing for this shift for a long time and now it is here, so just hold on, have faith, and say things like " isn't this interesting" ... enjoy the ride, you are privileged to be here.

You ask why preparedness is not stressed more on the news. Yet when I personally began to purchase some camping gear and dried food, both online and in local stores, to keep at my house for hurricane seasons in Florida, I was questioned by the stores why I was buying things like light sticks, waterproof matches, dried food, and first aid supplies, and a water purifier, like I was doing something wrong. Strange world we live in nowadays.

It’s no coincidence that there is a simultaneous increase in solar activity (CME’s, sunspots and such)and wild weather, earthquakes, volcanism, intense aurora, strange lights in the sky, and any number of other natural phenomenon. The Earth resides in the Sun’s radial electric field and many of the natural phenomenon we experience is the result of the electric energy completing the circuit to the leaky capacitor that is Earth.

It is simple for us. Get prepared with water, food, gasoline, medical supplies, batteries,fire arms etc. Have escape routes planned as well as meeting places in the event of separation. Even if we knew why this is happening, we are powerless to intervene in any way.
Those who live near the San Onofre and Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors need to be aware of these additional threats. In the meanwhile it would be a service to ourselves and all the future generations of earth to become actively opposed to these monster reactors and get them shut down.

Levi - A guy who can Predict Quakes

There is a psychic called Levi who has been chillingly accurate with predictions over the years.

Although I am skeptic about precognition, this man has me totally baffled and sends a shiver down my spine.

He even pinpointed the month and magnitude of the Japanese earthquake as well as the recent one that shook Tokyo and is expecting another big one.

He says California will get two big ones this year around September I think.

He was also bang on with the big one in Chile a few weeks ago. Brrrrr.

This guy is uncanny.

Check his website by googling

Levi tarot or Levi psychic.

He has some free preview predictions up there but you can access all Predictions he's made since 2007 for free. 2008 crash etc.

This boy is on top of his game but the MS Media ignores him like the plague.

Maybe he knows too much that they dont want us to know about plus he doesn't pull any punches.

Prepare to get prepared.

Everything is made of oil. Our population on this planet has increased to the size it is because of oil. When it is gone, so will everything that is made from it and transported by it. Too much talk and not enough actions by people. It's like everyone is in a dream, and we will one day wake up to a very horrible nightmare. And very few have done anything about it.

The Ring of Fire is much less a concern than the New Madrid. There is where the major changes will start. The USA will be split from the Great Lakes all the way to the Gulf and nothing will ever be the same again.

Sure earthquakes will happen, but there's NOTHING anyone here can do about them, except to be prepared for the worst. If people are so concerned about the ring of fire, then don't live there. I live in the ring of fire but am not worried because I am prepared. Where I live a serious earthquake may cut the power lines, and life will go on as usual.

the earth is relatively young if you compare it to the other members of our galaxy as well is our sun. the planet is long overdue for a major geological/geographical shift/change. the area that i honestly would be more concerned about is the areas along the juan de fuca plate and the australian plate..all this volcanic/seismic activity is just the beginning of a string of events that will eventually change life as we know it..

I wonder whether or not the same question was being asked 3567 years ago (or 3600, if you would prefer). The magnetic grid is weakening, suggesting an imminent pole reversal. There is an increased external gravitational pull due to the imminent arrival of planet NIBIRU. Oh, and to top it all off, we are about to cross over the central galactic plane.

Forget what the Mayans and the geologists say - just listen to what God's prophet William Branham said - the Anchorage earthquake was just the dragon moving its tail. wait until it moves its body (meaning the San Andreas fault.)

LA and SF are perfect modern types of Capernaum (= City of the Angels) and Sodom/Gomorrah, with their rampant homosexuality, porn industry, and decadence.

A naval minisub was sent under LA and it found much of the underground land was in fact honeycombed and absent in many places - just pillars of rock with many large caverns and cavities. The sub managed to travel 2 miles under the land...

So when the big one comes, whether you're having your party or not, the area will just slip into the ocean, the sharks will be swimming in May St, the tidal wave will traverse the globe, and the water will go inland to the Saltern Sea.

America is finished...

Repent, for God is not mocked.

I don't say this to condemn, but to warn. You who will listen, take heed: those who don't will never see it coming.

This is why all the earthquakes and volcanic activity are occurring, basic astrophysics.

Our sun, which is from a different galaxy, is being pulled into the milky way galaxy according to recent star survey data. At the plain of the galaxy, like the gravitational plain forming the rings of Saturn, is a force impacting our solar system as we pass through it. Much further activity is likely, the most dangerous being solar flares which could impact the US and world electric grids. This is the biggest danger as a grid down situation could and would likely cause numerous nuclear plant meltdowns as cooling would be unavailable. There is much to be concerned about environmentally. This alignment is what the Mayan's saw, how they predicted what would be a result of the alignment is anyone's guess but it wasn't a positive view of the future for current earth inhabitants.
