Well, lately a lot of people have been alarmed by the thousands of birds and fish that have been suddenly dying in the region. But an alarming number of bird and fish deaths are being reported literally all over the globe. So it is hard to pin this phenomenon on the New Madrid fault zone alone.
But could all of these bird and fish deaths be an indication that major earth changes are now underway?
If the earth is "waking up", could the New Madrid fault zone soon "wake up" as well?
The have certainly been some increased signs of seismic activity in the region lately....
*According to the U.S. Geological Survey, more than 500 measurable earthquakes have been recorded in central Arkansas just since September.
*A magnitude-3.8 earthquake that shook north-central Indiana on December 30th is being called "unprecedented". It was strong enough to actually cause cracks along the ground and it was felt in portions of Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky.
Some residents of the area are reporting that things are becoming increasingly "unstable" around where they live. Just check out the following testimony that was posted on another website....
I live on the New Madrid fault. And I can tell you this. The surface rupture of the roads and highways is out of control. Also, everyday of the week, the structure of my moms home is "cracking" and shifting. You can hear the walls and the surface crack.
Nearby is a dollar general store. In that parking lot there are 3 flagpoles that "vibrate" violently. (not shaking from wind) Each and everyday, the roads "blow" up potholes. U.S. 41 is ruptured severely.
Interstate 65 is also badly damaged. They keep trying to repave them but it doesn't work. The Cline Ave bridge at points is closing. This bridge and off ramps leads right into Inland steel and LTV steel and BP Amoco. So far, I believe 5-7 bridges have been shut down or are scheduled for closing because they are unsafe.
I monitor the earthquakes daily. And as you know there are far too many happening too quickly.
I believe the general public has been misled. In my opinion, the 2012 shift is happening now, but everyone has been conditioned to believe that they still have time to prepare for the main event. Thats b.s. It doesn't happen all at once.
In Momence Illinois, some of the buildings are beginning to "sink". In Cedar Lake Indiana, the same is happening.
The bottom line is this; Buildings are cracking, parking lots can't be fixed, roads and bridges are closing every week, sidewalks are sinking and sinkholes are opening everywhere. At time day or night, you can literally feel the earth "vibrate" below your feet.
I'm in Northwest Indiana, and I believe we are about to get hit with a earthquake of biblical proportions. We are surrounded by propane, natural gas and BP Amoco refineries.
And, I'm more than concerned what will happen when the new madrid erupts.
So why should we be so concerned about all this?
Well, because the New Madrid fault has produced the biggest earthquakes in U.S. history. I recently wrote about this on The American Dream blog....
About 200 years ago, in 1811 and 1812, there were four earthquakes that were so powerful in the area of the New Madrid fault zone that they are still talked about today. All four of the quakes were estimated to have been magnitude-7.0 or greater. It is said that those earthquakes opened deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards and that they were felt as far away as Boston.
The last major earthquake to hit the region was a 5.4-magnitude quake that struck the town of Dale, Illinois in 1968. Things have been strangely quiet in the region since then until recently.
The video posted below goes over some more of the history of earthquakes along the New Madrid fault....
So as seismic activity increases all over the globe, could we see more activity along the New Madrid fault as well?
Unfortuantely, that is exactly what many scientists now fear. Just check out the following video news report from ABC News....
Are you disturbed yet?
Well, you may also be very disturbed by this next video. Recently, a big earthquake in the Michigan area actually opened up a huge crack in the earth. Check it out....
The reality is that the world has been seeing a lot more earthquakes over the past year. There have also been a lot more volcano eruptions.
Something seems to be happening to the planet.
Will things get even crazier this year?
We will just have to wait and see.
