A U.S. Midwest Megaquake: many say ‘It can’t happen here.’ But it can, and it will. It’s happened many times in the past and the odds are increasing that it’s about to happen again soon—much sooner than most people think. The last New Madrid Megaquake caused the Mississippi River to run backward, destroyed whole towns and villages in seconds, and killed an unknown number of people. And that was when most of the Midwest was sparsely populated. The next Megaquake would affect up to 160 million people, severely damage or destroy most of the supporting infrastructure, topple one or more major cities, potentially kill tens of thousands, and make a million or more homeless within a matter of mere minutes.
Now, ominous evidence points to an imminent Megaquake: volcanic venting, spewing acrid plumes miles high into the atmosphere, has been observed and photographed. Worse, the many ancient Midwestern volcanoes are re-activating—and farther west the grandaddy of Utah’s volcanoes is waking from its long, restless slumber…
New Madrid Doomsday: Volcanic Venting Detected In Arkansas, Missouri
Scientists at the United States Geological Survey are probably biting their nails…and if they’re not, they better start.
The New Madrid fault is giving every indication of an approaching major slip and significant volcanic venting in three states is providing plenty of warning.
A remarkable satellite video of the New Madrid fault region, posted by researcher Michael Janitch, captures multiple plumes from volcanic vents along the fault area. Much of the region is honeycombed with cracks and fractures. Much more of it has roiling magma under immense pressure deep underground.
Anyone who’s visited the famous hot springs in Arkansas, or walked the terrain where diamonds can be found on the ground knows that the area is volcanically active.
While relatively dormant, the pressure is always there. As it builds it creates greater pressure on the subterranean strata. Some of that pressure is relieved by small temblors measuring anywhere from 2.5 to 4.0 in strength.
But the small quakes are not enough to offset the rising pressure and eventually the fault sheers and slips. How much it slips determines how big the earthquake is that accompanies the slippage.
And most geologists agree that the next significant shift will be great—so great that a Megaquake will occur that equals or surpasses the historic quake of 1811-12.
ALERT: Dormant volcanoes activating in Utah, Oklahoma, Missouri
Beyond the upsurge in magma and steam venting, disturbing evidence has emerged that indicates three long dormant volcanoes in the Midwest may be returning to life. And if volcanoes return to life—in what are now densely populated areas—their life could mean the death of many humans.
Janitch has identified the volcanoes and documented their stirrings. One of the most dangerous—and surprising—volcanoes is the one located in southeast Missouri.
According to Janitch”…there resides a dormant volcano—not marked on any map… but you can see the county (I have done this already myself)… go look up that county on Google Earth… and look for the only stand alone mountain in the area… zoom in… and you will see it… clearly an unmarked or unknown dormant volcano… (for sure unnamed).”
Yes, there are volcanoes in Missouri, also in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Utah.
The initial venting seen in the video (three separate regions) took place in Arkansas within the New Madrid seismic zone at previously dormant volcano sites at or near the Murfeesboro Crater of the Diamonds state park. The diamonds are located in the ancient calderas of a dormant volcano chain that’s now venting.
The entire region is becoming active. As can be seen in the video taken by satellite, even parts of central Oklahoma are venting. Oklahoma also has a chain of very ancient volcanoes that gradually were eroded almost flat by wind and rain.
The problem with “dormant” volcanoes is they don’t stay dormant forever.
The gigantic rivers of flowing magma are being pushed upwards at tremendous pressure from deep within the Earth. The river ebbs and flows winding its way three-dimensionally and crosses many Southern and Midwest states all the way out to Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.
As the magama increases it places more and more pressure on the strata containing it. The magma cuts new channels and vastly increases the pressure on fault lines until they buckle and shift.
Adding to the woes the Midwest may soon experience, is the now turbulent sun. It’s known that significantly increased and violent solar storms exacerbate the geomagnetic field. The permutations radiate all the way to the Earth’s core. That in turn increases the rate and intensity of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
So, three forces are simultaneously at work leading to the high probability of a catastrophic Midwest Megaquake: the fact that a major quake on the New Madrid faultline is overdue; the intense build-up of volcanic magma pressures adding to the existing stress upon the fault; and the peak solar activity which space experts forecast to be the worst and most violent since 1859.
The hell that a Megaquake could bring to 12 or more states in the Midwest is fully revealed in this article: Alert: Devastating Megaquake May Destroy Midwest Soon.
The potential amount of death and destruction is beyond most peoples ability to imagine, let alone cope with. Emergency services would be strained beyond their breaking point and the state and federal governments would be impotent for weeks following the event.
Food and drinkable water would be rationed, medical help scarce, and power out.
The Midwest Megaquake can easily be the most devastating and deadly natural disaster to ever occur in U.S. history. The economic cost can barely be imagined. It could run into the trillions. The cost in lives is unimaginable.
Yes, the New Madrid is restless and growing more so every day. The vents are venting, the pressure building, the pent up fury almost ready to explode… The New Madrid fault is awakening. It’s not in a very good mood.
