Earthquakes in the News

It has been a year of mega-earthquakes. From today’s US Geological Survey home page:

Sumatra Earthquake—Largest in 2007
The magnitude-8.4 earthquake that struck Sumatra, Indonesia, on Sept. 12, 2007, was the largest of four magnitude~8 earthquakes that have occurred worldwide since January. It is also the largest earthquake in Indonesia since the magnitude-8.6 “Nias” earthquake of March 2005. On average, the Earth produces about one magnitude-8 or larger earthquake per year, and about 15 to 20 magnitude-7 earthquakes per year.

No, I didn’t put this in because of end-times prophecies of earthquakes — I addressed that a while back in my post Earthquakes and the End Times.

Grace and Peace
