A tsunami bulletin was issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center at 0022z on October 15, 2013.

146 major to great (6.0+) earthquakes hit various places over the last 260 days. Among these were 18 7.0+ and 2 8.1+ magnitude quakes. (Sources: CSEM-EMSC, Geoscience Australia, USGS, Pacific Tsunami Warning Center).

Major to great magnitude earthquakes have increased to more than one quake every two days on average during the last eight months. This is unprecedented and fulfills last days Bible prophecy.

Jesus said,
"Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, famines and pestilences and there shall be fearful sights and great signs from heaven" Luke 21:11. 

During the previous 34 months, there have been at least 365 major to great (6.0+) earthquakes reported on this site.

Recent earthquakes have occurred in New Zealand, Mexico, Greece and today in the Philippines. Jesus said there will be great earthquakes in diverse places. The last four major to great earthquakes have all occurred in various places, none close in proximity to one another. This pattern too is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Jesus said these signs would appear before He returns,
"Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places" Matthew 24:7.

Jesus also said,
"Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching" Luke 12:37.

The Lord instructed us to watch, so we will not be caught unaware.
