East Coast Quakes: What to Know About the Tremors Below

People across the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic were shaken, literally, on a Sunday morning as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck in North Carolina on August 9, 2020.

Centered in Sparta, NC, the tremor knocked groceries off shelves and left many wondering just when the next big one could strike.

Fault Lines

Compared to the West Coast, there are far fewer fault lines in the East. This is why earthquakes in the East are relatively uncommon and weaker in magnitude.

That said, earthquakes still occur in the East.

According to Spectrum News Meteorologist Matthew East, “Earthquakes have occurred in every eastern U.S. state, and a majority of states have recorded damaging earthquakes. However, they are pretty rare. For instance, the Sparta earthquake Sunday was the strongest in North Carolina in over 100 years.”

While nowhere near to the extent of the West Coast, damaging earthquakes can and do affect much of the eastern half of the country.

For example, across the Tennesse River Valley lies the New Madrid Fault Line. While much smaller in size than those found farther west, the fault has managed to produce several earthquakes over magnitude 7.0 in the last couple hundred years.

In 1886, an estimated magnitude 7.0 struck Charleston, South Carolina along a previously unknown seismic zone. Nearly the entire town had to be rebuilt.


The eastern half of the U.S. has its own set of vulnerabilities from earthquakes.

Seismic waves actually travel farther in the East as opposed to the West Coast. This is because the rocks that make up the East are tens, if not hundreds, of millions of years older than in the West.

These older rocks have had much more time to bond together with other rocks under the tremendous pressure of Earth’s crust. This allows seismic energy to transfer between rocks more efficiently during an earthquake, causing the shaking to be felt much further.

This is why, during the latest quake in North Carolina, impacts were felt not just across the state, but reports of shaking came as far as Atlanta, Georgia, nearly 300 miles away.

Reports of shaking from different earthquakes of similar magnitude.

Quakes in the East can also be more damaging to infrastructure than in the West. This is generally due to the older buildings found east. Architects in the early-to-mid 1900s simply were not accounting for earthquakes in their designs for cities along the East Coast.

When a magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck Virginia in 2011, not only were numerous historical monuments in Washington, D.C. damaged, shaking was reported up and down the East Coast with tremors even reported in Canada.


There is no way to accurately predict when or where an earthquake may strike.

Some quakes will have a smaller earthquake precede the primary one. This is called a foreshock.

The problem is though, it’s difficult to say whether the foreshock is in fact a foreshock and not the primary earthquake. Only time will tell the difference.

The United State Geological Survey (USGS) is experimenting with early warning detection systems in the West Coast.

While this system cannot predict earthquakes before they occur, they can provide warning up to tens of seconds in advance that shaking is imminent. This could provide just enough time to find a secure location before the tremors begin.

Much like hurricanes, tornadoes, or snowstorms, earthquakes are a natural occuring phenomenon that we can prepare for.

The USGS provides an abundance of resources on how to best stay safe when the earth starts to quake.

Russia Prepares for Nuclear War: Revelation 16

Russia’s strategic nuclear force conducting exercise

Against the background of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, the Russian defense ministry has announced that the country’s nuclear forces are undergoing exercises in Ivanovo region.

This was reported on the ministry’s website, Ukrinform reports.

“In Ivanovo region, autonomous launchers of the Yars mobile ground-based missile system manned by the Teikovsky group of the Strategic Missile Forces are carrying out intensive maneuvering on combat patrol routes as part of the exercises,” the statement said.

According to the Ministry of Defense, about 1,000 servicemen are involved in the exercises, along with over 100 units of equipment. “Strategic missiles are working on deploying missile systems in field positions, moving up to 100 km, dispersing units with changing field positions, the latter’s engineering fortification, camouflaging, and combat protection,” the ministry said.

The Strategic Missile Force is a major component of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces, designed to ensure nuclear deterrence to possible aggression. They are based on Yars complexes, capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 11,000 kilometers. They are equipped with a detachable main part with the individual targeting maneuvering units.

On February 24, Russia launched a new phase of its war against Ukraine – a full-scale offensive. The enemy has been massively shelling and bombing peaceful Ukrainian towns and villages.

IAEA accuses Iran of enriching Nukes: Daniel 8

IAEA accuses Iran of enriching uranium over ‘deal limit’

AFP Published May 31, 2022 –  Updated 2 days ago

VIENNA: The UN nuclear watchdog said on Monday that it estimated Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium had grown to more than 18 times the limit laid down in Tehran’s 2015 deal with world powers.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said in its latest report on Iran’s nuclear programme that it “estimated that, as of May 15, 2022, Iran’s total enriched stockpile was 3,809.3 kilograms.” The limit in the 2015 deal was set at 300 kg (660 pounds) of a specific compound, the equivalent of 202.8 kg of uranium.

The report also says that Iran is continuing its enrichment of uranium to levels higher than the 3.67 percent limit in the deal.

The stockpile of uranium enriched up to 20 percent is now estimated to be 238.4 kg, up 56.3 kg since the last report in March, while the amount enriched to 60 percent stands at 43.1 kg, an increase of 9.9 kg.

Enrichment levels of around 90 percent are required for use in a nuclear weapon. Iran has always insisted its nuclear programme is peaceful.

A diplomatic source said the amount of uranium enriched to 60 percent now exceeded the IAEA’s threshold of a “significant quantity”, defined by the agency as an approximate amount above which “the possibility of manufacturing a nuclear explosive cannot be excluded”.

However, the same source pointed out that some uranium would be lost during the process of further enrichment, meaning that in reality “you would need more than 55 kilograms” for that purpose.

In a separate report also issued on Monday, the IAEA reiterated that it still had questions which were “not clarified” regarding previous undeclared nuclear material at three sites named as Marivan, Varamin and Turquzabad.

This is despite a long-running series of attempts by the IAEA to get Iranian officials to explain the presence of this material.

The report said Iran has offered the explanation of an “act of sabotage by a third party to contaminate” the sites, but added no proof had been provided to corroborate this.

The diplomatic source said that an act of sabotage was “not easy to believe” given “the distribution of the material” that had led to the IAEA’s questions.

The latest reports come as talks to revive the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers remain deadlocked after stalling in March.

Antichrist Backs Dissolving Parliament, Holding Early Elections

Report: Iraq’s Sadr Backs Dissolving Parliament, Holding Early Elections

October 10 vote remains unresolvedby Jason Ditz Posted onCategoriesNewsTagsIraq

After months of recounts and speculation, and more months of failed deal-making, Iraq’s current parliament looks like it may end in outright failure, with reports that Moqtada al-Sadr now supports dissolving parliament and holding an early election.

Sadr’s party has the biggest plurality in the parliament, but has been unable to get together a president, speaker, and premier. He has ruled out a unity coalition with rival State of Law, and seems to prefer trying his luck with another vote.

In parliamentary systems that’s always an option, and its not uncommon after a failure to build a coalition to just try again with a new vote. Despite this, it would be Iraq’s first time down that road.

That’s not accidental. Elections have been expensive and risked violence since the US occupation, so doing a re-run has basically been seen as no option. Security isn’t perfect now, but it’s at a point where a re-vote is at least plausible.

Several nations have gone down this road, and the real risk is that the next result looks concerningly similar to the last vote, and no one is any closer to forming a government.

This can go on for months or even years with several votes leading to nothing. That’s a danger that scares many off the fresh vote path, though it is a testament to how determined Sadr is that the next Iraqi government won’t include a unity coalition of Shi’ite factions with wildly different agendas.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said that the Palestinian struggle against Israel will continue as long as occupation is still there, stressing that the Palestinian resistance will continue defending the holy sites until their final liberation.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said that the Palestinian struggle against Israel will continue as long as occupation is still there, stressing that the Palestinian resistance will continue defending the holy sites until their final liberation.

Spokesman Barhoum said in a press statement on Monday that the Hamas Movement received several calls from various parties in an attempt to prevent war following the Jewish settlers’ provocative flag march.

“The flag march is an inseparable part of the Israeli persisting plans to control and to Judaize al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Barhoum underlined, hailing the Palestinian people who marched en masse in defense of the Al-Aqsa Mosque against the flag march.

Barhoum underlined that the Palestinian resistance has fought four decisive battles and is ready and willing to fight other battles until the liberation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israeli desecration.

He called on the Palestinian people to unite in resisting the Israeli occupation, stressing the importance of preserving the identity of Jerusalem and the Islamic holy sites.

On Sunday, thousands of Jewish settlers stormed the old city of al-Quds through Bab al-Amud area to participate in the flag march and assaulted Palestinian citizens and property. In addition, 2,626 Jewish settlers raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque and provocatively performed Talmudic rituals in its courtyards.
