    Quake rocks Washington area, felt on East Coast


    WASHINGTON (AP) — A 5.9 magnitude earthquake centered in Virginia forced evacuations of all the monuments in Washington and rattled nerves from the southern state of Georgia to Martha's Vineyard, the Massachusetts island in the northeast where President Barack Obama is vacationing. No injuries were immediately reported.

    The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was half a mile (800 meters) deep and centered about 40 miles (64 kilometers) northwest of Richmond, the state capital of Virginia. Shaking was felt at the White House and all over the East Coast, as far south as Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Parts of the Pentagon, White House and Capitol were evacuated.

    Brutha, could this be viewed as the beginning of the end? Look at all what is going on in the world.I will not insult you by quoting Bible verse That I know you are aware of. I remember as a child, my mother watching the news about a weather catastrophe, or some world conflict would always say, "Just goes to show you that the end times are here". People have been saying that the world is going to end for centuries. As you can see, it hasn't ended yet.But the Bible do speak of the signs that will lead to the end of the world,signs I admit we are seeing now. I don't mean to get off point,But I've just been thinking about the increase in recent event that seem to reek havoc on the world. I see you as being the best to address this.

    Peace!

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Brother Enki,

    First, you cannot get off topic in this thread with me, your candid thoughts are well respected and on point. More than anything else, our Bible is a book of prophecy, a little known fact seldom discussed. With global focus throughout the media, nearly 6 billion are keenly aware, as you plainly state, of world-wide events pointing to chaos and catastrophes, one after another, indisputable.

    From my viewpoint, knowing America is the fall before Rome and that the earth is showing signs of a eschatological longing and return of its Creator, its safe to say, as your parents and many others, we are getting closer to some major event of divine intervention.

    Peace In,

    When ever a quake happens,I always think about if they have a nuclear power plant to generate power. I know those things are built to take a certain amount of damage. But when the earth want to move,it moves. You don't want to have a cooling water leak and have that seep into the water table.I know they lost power which creates it's own set of problems.

    Peace!

    .......This reminds me of the recent nuclear power plant problems in Japan.

    The UW had certain departments set up monitoring equipment to monitor our exposure.

    This thing that bothers me is a quotes I learned from a book called 1984. The line is "today's truth is tomorrows lie". the was proven with 3 Mile Island. Lets just hope this is the last quake they get. I just read where they said that they normally get quakes every 2 to 3 years. That's fine,but what makes the difference is the magnitude.

    Peace!
