By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream
On September 28th, we will witness the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015. This blood moon will be a “supermoon” and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem. According to Google, a supermoon is “the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.” In recent years, there have been some that have suggested that there is a link between supermoons and increased seismic activity on our planet. But others have written articles that claim to debunk this theory. Personally, I have read what both sides of the argument have to say, and I do not know which side of the argument is correct. But what I do know is that seismic activity along the Ring of Fire has picked up dramatically in recent years.
According to Volcano Discovery, there are 32 volcanoes on or near the Ring of Fire that are erupting right now. If that sounds like an unusually high number to you, that is because it is an unusually high number.
We have seen earthquake activity increase along the Ring of Fire as well. Just a few days ago, a massive 8.3-magnitude earthquake hit Chile. It produced a tsunami that was approximately 16 feet tall, and tsunami advisories were issued as far away as New Zealand…
A tsunami advisory was issued for the coastal areas of Southern California, which means strong currents are likely and residents should stay away from the shore.
Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties warned residents to stay away from beaches and harbors due to the chances of strong currents. But authorities in the three counties said land inundation is not expected.
“Widespread hazardous tsunami waves are possible” along the coast of Chile and Peru, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said, and a tsunami watch is in effect for Hawaii.
A tsunami watch is issued “to alert emergency management officials and the public of an event which may later impact the watch area,” the center says. A warning is issued when a “potential tsunami with significant widespread inundation is imminent or expected.”
Even New Zealand, which is 6,000 miles away from the quake’s epicenter, issued a tsunami warning.
You can see some video footage of the immense damage that the tsunami caused in Chile right here.
Approximately 80 percent of all large earthquakes each year happen along the Ring of Fire, and at some point we are going to see natural disasters occur in this “danger zone” that are going to absolutely shock the entire planet.
