The Most Powerful NY Quake Before the Sixth Seal: Revelation 6

What’s the Most Powerful Earthquake to Ever Strike New York State?

When you think of natural disasters striking New York state, you may think of only blizzards, floods, or hurricanes. However, while the West Coast gets all the attention when it comes to powerful earthquakes, they do occur in New York as well. Most here are small and have little damaging effect on any surrounding areas. But every now and then the Earth will surprise us. According to the NESEC, around 551 earthquakes were recorded in New York state from 1737-2016.

The first earthquake to hit the state of New York in 2022 was a 2.3 magnitude tremor in Boonville on January 10. Most earthquakes that happen within the state are either far north towards Quebec, in western New York around Lake Ontario, or closer to the New York City area. The most well known fault line near our area is the Ramapo fault line. The 185 mile system of faults runs through parts of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and has been known to spawn smaller earthquakes.

But could something as strong as a magnitude 7.0  ever occur on this fault?

Some say this fault system is much more complex and extensive than originally thought. A 2008 study proposed that there may be an additional fault zone extending from the Ramapo Fault into southwestern Connecticut. There are also many smaller faults that criss-cross across New York City, and the city could be long overdue for a significant earthquake. 

There is also the Western Quebec Seismic Zone, which can produce larger quakes that can be felt up and down the eastern coast of the United States, particularly for their neighbors directly south in the Empire State. This is where the strongest quakes happen near us.

New York state’s all-time most powerful earthquake? 

According to the NESEC, the largest earthquake centered in New York state happened on September 5, 1944. The magnitude 5.9 quake, with an epicenter beneath the New York-Canada border, did major damage in the towns of Massena, NY, and Cornwall, Ontario. Heavy damage was recorded in the town of Massena (St. Lawrence County), with a number of chimneys, windows, housing foundations, and a high school gymnasium reported destroyed.

New York City has suffered two damaging quakes of note. The first was December 18, 1737, when a 5.2 struck in the Greater New York City area. However, since it was so long ago, little is known about the epicenter or the extent of the damage. Another 5.2 quake struck on August 10, 1884, in Brooklyn, which cracked houses, tossed objects off shelves and shook towns in New York and New Jersey.

An interesting note

When earthquakes hit states like California, they typically are felt across a smaller area. But when the slightly weaker quakes occasionally strike the eastern U.S. or Canada, they can be felt over a much wider area, extending hundreds of miles. Why is this? According to CBS, the Earth’s crust over this region is much older, colder, and more healed versus out west which is far more seismically active. But when a quake does occur here, the harder, smoother ground is more effective at conducting seismic waves. One Columbia University professor compares it to striking a bell. So, a strong quake in the middle of Quebec, or even New Jersey, can be felt across many portions of New York.

    BEIJING — A Chinese carrier strike group has been conducting drills that simulate attacks on Japan’s Nansei Islands since Dec. 16, Chinese government sources told The Yomiuri Shimbun.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping is said to have instructed the military to start the drills on the day the Japanese government unveiled three major defense-related documents.

    According to the sources, a unit operating in the western Pacific south of Okinawa Prefecture led by the Chinese Navy’s aircraft carrier Liaoning is involved in the drills, which are scheduled to end on Dec. 26.

    The sources said the exercises also involve type 055 missile destroyers — advanced vessels capable of ground attacks.

    China will reportedly conduct long-range strike drills from waters in the western Pacific, simulating missile launches targeting islands in the Nansei chain, on which Japan is considering deploying missiles. Ship-borne aircraft have already started night landing and takeoff drills.

    The Chinese military’s carrier strike group usually holds annual winter exercises around December. This year, Xi designated a start date.

    On Dec. 16, the Japanese government adopted three documents including the National Security Strategy. Xi ordered the Chinese military to conduct the drills on the same day. Strategic bombers will also simulate a pincer attack on Taiwan from the east and west during the drills, according to the sources.

    According to the Japanese Defense Ministry, the Liaoning and other vessels in the carrier strike group were confirmed to have passed between Okinawa and Miyako islands, entering the Pacific Ocean on Dec. 16. They sailed 260 kilometers west-southwest of Okidaito Island the following day, and on Tuesday this week, they were seen 450 kilometers east-northeast of Kitadaito Island.

    From that location, ship-borne aircraft can get to the Nansei chain in 5 to 10 minutes.

    About 130 takeoffs and landings by ship-borne aircraft and helicopters have reportedly been conducted.

    According to the U.S. Defense Department, the Chinese military has adopted a strategy of active defense, which could lead to a preemptive strike on an adversary if Beijing believes it is about to be attacked.

    The acquisition of counterattack capabilities is stated in Japan’s security documents and the Xi administration is wary of a large Japanese deployment of missiles on the Nansei Islands.

    The Chinese government sources said the aim of the exercises is to undermine Japan’s security strategy against China.

    According to the Chinese Defense Ministry, the Chinese Navy also began joint exercises with the Russian Navy off Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province, on Wednesday. The ministry said the exercises will include anti-submarine and maritime blockade drills.

    Russia Prepares Satan for Nuclear War: Daniel 7

    Putin readies world’s ‘most powerful’ Satan II nuclear missile for ‘combat duty’

    Russian President Vladimir Putin looks to overhaul war effort in Ukraine as forces flag on front lines

    By Caitlin McFall | Fox News

    ‘Putin’s Playbook’ author Rebekah Koffler breaks down Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s historic speech to a joint session of Congress.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the Kremlin is working to ready what he previously described as the world’s “most powerful” warhead, the intercontinental ballistic Satan II missile, for “combat duty” as the war in Ukraine rages on. 

    The Kremlin chief acknowledged this week for the first time since the war began that his forces in Ukraine face tough times ahead, as the 10-month-long war shows no sign of ending. 

    Putin said military officials are now reviewing the state of the war — in which Russia has lost ground in recent months — along with its previous experience in international conflicts, like the war in Syria, when analyzing how to advance its “special military operation.”

    “We are well aware of all the NATO forces and resources that they have been using against us over the course of the special military operation,” he said Wednesday in an address to Russia’s Defense Military Board.

    Putin laid out a series of plans he is looking to implement to overhaul his war effort, which includes bolstering “the combat readiness of [Russia’s] nuclear triad.” 

    “It is the main guarantee that our sovereignty and territorial integrity, strategic parity and the general balance of forces in the world are preserved,” he said in an announcement that comes as the U.S. looks to pledge another $44 billion in aid for Ukraine.

    The Russian president championed Moscow’s stockpiles of Avangard hypersonic warheads and said Russia will continue to develop its hypersonic missiles with “unique characteristics, unmatched in the world.”

    Putin also said Russia would soon ready its RS-28 Sarmat, dubbed Satan II by Western officials, for “combat duty for the first time” — though he did not specify when this would occur.

    “In early January of next year, the Admiral of the Soviet Fleet Gorshkov frigate will start combat duty,” he added, noting it will carry sea-based hypersonic missiles “without equal in the world.”

    Reports of communication failures among the ranks will also be addressed, Putin said while calling on engineers and weapons designers to regularly visit the front lines to address troop demands. 

    Top Ministry of Defense officials will also be expected to coordinate with regional heads in Ukraine as Putin looks to secure the regions he claimed to have annexed earlier this year. 

    Reports have long suggested that Russia has taken heavy losses on the battlefield. On Thursday, Ukraine asserted that Russia has lost over 100,000 troops in the war. 

    Putin looked to mitigate his losses by conscripting 300,000 men into Russia’s ranks in September. However, reports of insufficient training and inadequate arms has allegedly led to high death tolls among those drafted. 

    “We know that there are no small things on the battlefield, so you need to pay special attention,” he said addressing his defense officials. “I want to emphasize it once again: medical kits, food, dry rations, uniforms, footwear, protective helmets, body armour — everything should be at the most up-to-date and highest level.”

    “Everything that a fighter uses should be cutting-edge, convenient and reliable, and the supply should correspond to their actual needs,” Putin continued. “If some ministry standards are outdated, they need to be changed — and quickly.”

    Putin compared the war in Ukraine to other top wars involving Russia, including when Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Russia in 1812, as well as both World Wars. 

    Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also announced Wednesday that Russia would be increasing its military by 30%, bringing its fighting force up from just over 1 million personnel to 1.5 million, reported Reuters.

    Shoigu did not specify when this expansion would occur.

    The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

    BY TUFAYEL AHMED ON 9/27/17 AT 9:28 AM
    Updated | An earthquake is long overdue to hit New York and America isn’t prepared, author and environmental theorist Kathryn Miles told Trevor Noah on Tuesday’s Daily Show.
    Miles is the author of a new book, Quakeland, which investigates how imminently an earthquake is expected in the U.S. and how well-prepared the country is to handle it. The answer to those questions: Very soon and not very well.
    “We know it will, that’s inevitable, but we don’t know when,” said Miles when asked when to expect another earthquake in the U.S.
    She warned that New York is in serious danger of being the site of the next one, surprising considering that the West Coast sits along the San Andreas fault line.
    “New York is 40 years overdue for a significant earthquake…Memphis, Seattle, Washington D.C.—it’s a national problem,” said Miles.
    Miles told Noah that though the U.S. is “really good at responding to natural disasters,” like the rapid response to the hurricanes in Texas and Florida, the country and its government is, in fact, lagging behind in its ability to safeguard citizens before an earthquake hits.
    “We’re really bad at the preparedness side,” Miles responded when Noah asked how the infrastructure in the U.S. compares to Mexico’s national warning system, for example.
    “Whether it’s the literal infrastructure, like our roads and bridges, or the metaphoric infrastructure, like forecasting, prediction, early warning systems. Historically, we’ve underfunded those and as a result we’re way behind even developing nations on those fronts.”
    Part of the problem, Miles says, is that President Donald Trump and his White House are not concerned with warning systems that could prevent the devastation of natural disasters.
    “We can invest in an early warning system. That’s one thing we can definitely do. We can invest in better infrastructures, so that when the quake happens, the damage is less,” said the author.
    “The scientists, the emergency managers, they have great plans in place. We have the technology for an early warning system, we have the technology for tsunami monitoring. But we don’t have a president that is currently interested in funding that, and that’s a problem.”
    This article has been updated to reflect that Miles said New York is the possible site of an upcoming earthquake, and not the likeliest place to be next hit by one.

    What is ‘Satan II,’ Russia’s new nuclear missile? ‘Superweapon’ reportedly almost ready for combat


    Evan Simko-Bednarski

    December 22, 2022 3:13pm 

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has a new saber to rattle — a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile designed to update the Kremlin’s nuclear quiver, and reportedly almost ready for deployment.

    The missile — called the RS-28 Sarmat by Russia and ominously dubbed the “Satan II” by NATO — is designed to carry up to 15 nuclear warheads, five more than the outgoing Soviet-era R-36M “Satan.”

    The missile is liquid-fueled, and categorized as a “super-heavy” ICBM — one with enough lifting capacity to deliver multiple warheads arranged in a so-called multiple independently targeted re-entry vehicle. In other words, one missile can theoretically hit as many as 15 nearby targets.

    The missile is designed to be fired from the existing R-36M silos with minimal modification.

    When the missile was put through its paces during a test in April — striking mock targets at a range of 3,000 miles — Dmitry Rogozin, head of the state Roscosmos agency overseeing the missile’s construction, called the Sarmat a “superweapon.”

    The Kremlin claims its design — which includes a shorter “boost phase” during the rocket’s launch and supposedly novel trajectories — will make it harder for US missile defenses to intercept the Sarmat in the event of a thermonuclear war.

    The missile is also equipped to carry hypersonic munitions in its warhead, according to Russian reports — effectively making the ICBM a cruise-missile launch platform.

    Putin claimed in April that the Sarmat “is capable of overcoming all modern means of anti-missile defense,” and that Russia’s enemies should “think twice” before issuing threats.

    Putin says the missile, which is already behind schedule, will be sent to Russian nuclear units soon.

    The R-36M “Satan” is set to be replaced by the Sarmat.

    But the Sarmat, which Putin claims is coming soon, is already years behind schedule.

    The missile was first announced in 2014 with a planned deployment date of 2020. But problems with the missile’s engines delayed proper testing, Russian news agency Interfax reported.33

    Testing began in earnest in 2018, and by 2020, the Kremlin announced the weapon would be deployed by 2022. After April’s test launch, Roscosmos claimed the missile would see service “no later than the fall of 2022,” according to Interfax.

    Israeli forces kill Palestinian militant outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

    Israeli forces kill Palestinian militant in West Bank clashes

    By AFP – Dec 22,2022 – Last updated at Dec 22,2022

    NABLUS, Palestinian Territories — Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian linked to Hamas during clashes in the West Bank city of Nablus early on Thursday, the Palestinian health ministry said.

    The exchange of fire came just hours after veteran Israeli hawk Benjamin Netanyahu announced he had formed a new government, returning to power as the head of the most right-wing coalition in Israel’s history.

    The Palestinian health ministry said Ahmed Atef Daraghmeh, 23, a footballer from the nearby town of Tulkarem, sustained bullet wounds to the back and foot.

    Islamist group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, said Daraghmeh was a member of its military wing who “was killed by occupation bullets during clashes at dawn on Thursday”.

    Hundreds of people took part in his funeral in the city of Tubas on Thursday, an AFP journalist reported. The man’s body was draped in a Hamas flag.

    The Israeli forces said its troops had entered Nablus to “secure the coordinated entrance of Israeli civilians to Joseph’s Tomb”, a contested religious site that Muslims believe houses the grave of a local sheikh, but many Jews revere as the burial place of the Biblical patriarch Joseph.

    ‘Explosive devices’ 

    “Armed Palestinians hurled explosive devices and fired toward the soldiers, endangering their lives,” the army said. “The soldiers responded with live fire. Hits were identified.”

    Joseph’s Tomb lies within the built up area of Nablus, and Jewish pilgrims can only visit in groups escorted by the Israeli forces. Their entry often sparks clashes with Palestinian residents.

    Nablus has seen frequent clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in recent months, as Israeli forces stepped up operations in Palestinian towns and cities in response to a wave of deadly attacks on Israeli targets earlier this year.

    The flare-up has seen the rise to prominence of a new armed group, dubbed the “Lions’ Den”, that has brought together fighters from established Palestinian factions united in their opposition to the longstanding security coordination between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli forces.

    Israeli forces killed some of the group’s top leaders in early October, but its fighters said on Telegram that they had taken part in Thursday’s clashes.

    Members of the new governing coalition announced by Netanyahu late Wednesday have called for an even tougher crackdown on Palestinians.

    The prospective national security minister in the new government, Itamar Ben Gvir of the far-right Jewish Power Party, has repeatedly urged Israeli security personnel to use more force when countering Palestinian unrest.

    At least 150 Palestinians and 26 Israelis have been killed this year across Israel and the occupied West Bank, including Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem.

    A further 49 Palestinians were killed during three days of fighting between Gaza and Israel in August.

    Video shows Biden saying Iran-Obama nuclear deal is ‘dead’

     Video shows Biden saying Iran nuclear deal is ‘dead’

    Video shows Biden saying Iran nuclear deal is ‘dead’

    An apparently genuine video from early November shows US President Joe Biden telling a woman that the 2015 deal to limit Iran’s nuclear weapons development is ‘dead’ after months of efforts to revive it

    Washington – US President Joe Biden said last month that the multi-state deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program was “dead,” but he would not announce that publicly, according to a video that surfaced Tuesday.

    The video, which appears genuine and was apparently taken on November 3 during Biden’s visit to California, shows him being asked by a woman to announce that the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)  is no longer in effect.

    “President Biden, could you please announce that the JCPOA is dead,” the woman, who appears to wear a hair ribbon in Iran’s flag colors, asks as Biden passes by shaking hands.

    “No,” Biden replies. 

    “Why not?” the woman retorts.

    “It is dead, but we are not going to announce it,” the US leader said. “Long story,” he adds.

    The woman, and others next to her, urge him to not make deals with the Tehran government. 

    “They don’t represent us,” she said. “They are not our government,” another added.

    “I know they don’t represent you. But they will have a nuclear weapon,” Biden says, as the video clip ends.

    Biden’s comments, which the White House did not deny, came as Iran has not bowed to months of pressure to accept the final stipulations of an agreement to revive the JCPOA, which was abandoned by his predecessor Donald Trump in 2018.

    Talks to revive the deal have been ongoing in Vienna since April 2021, and at one point early this year Iran and Washington appeared extremely close to a deal.

    Since then there has not been any progress, and the European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell warned in September that the parties were actually “diverging.”

    Asked about the video, White House national security spokesman John Kirby said nobody was questioning its authenticity.

    He said Washington still wants to restore the JCPOA, but that doing so is not priority, given the Ukraine war.

    “The president’s comments are very much in line with everything we’ve been saying about the JCPOA, which is just not our focus right now,” Kirby told reporters.

    “There is no progress happening with respect to the Iran deal now. We don’t anticipate any progress anytime in the near future,” he said.

    “We simply don’t see a deal coming together anytime soon, while Iran continues to kill its own citizens and is selling UAVs to Russia,” he said, making references to Tehran’s campaign to repress months-long demonstrations over its treatment of women, and to Tehran’s supplying attack drones to Russia for use in Ukraine.
