Central Kansas has experienced a shocking few days of increased seismic activity to where 11 earthquakes hit in five days.
The largest of them being a magnitude-4.2 that shook the area with more than 1,000 people reporting feeling the quake across Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri, according to the USGS.
It was not far off from the strongest measured earthquake in the state at 4.9 magnitude.
In the town of Hutchinson with a population of about 40,700 people, there was damage. Merchandise tumbled to the floor in stores, ceiling tiles and light fixtures fell to the floor from buildings including the Hutchinson Regional Medical Center.
And in neighboring Harvey County, Burrton school officials were relocating high school classes to the middle and elementary schools after cracks were discovered in the building.
The 11 earthquakes in five days is even more shocking in the context of it happening in Kansas. Earthquakes in Kansas are just not suppose to be likely, and certainly not this many this quickly.
In a study by the U.S. Geological Survey in 2014 which comes out every 6 years, it says that 42 states have a reasonable chance of experiencing damaging ground shaking from an earthquake, which typically happens starting at 4.0 magnitude.
The study says that 8 states did not have such an earthquake hazard level. Kansas is one of those 8. And prior to 2014 there had been fewer than one earthquake per year (basically zero) in Kansas.
But since then the largest recorded earthquake in state history, felt across 150,000 square miles of land and as far away as Memphis, was a 4.9 magnitude quake that struck in 2014.
And they have been increasing since, to where now they are even getting earthquake clusters as in the past few days.
As Dorothy said in the classic movie to her dog Toto, “I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” At least not in what had been normal for Kansas.
The Biblical Prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that there will be diverse earthquakes signaling we are nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all these things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy that comes upon the world of disobedience, as the born again Church is appointed instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
