Luke 21:11 "There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things (that which strikes terror), and great miraculous signs in the heavens."
Editor’s Note: Prophet Rick Joyner warns that when you see strange and extreme weather (record breaking highs, lows, floods, droughts, tornadoes, storms), it is a prophetic sign that the Revelation Days are upon us.
An April 2013 avalanche near Salt Lake City that registered a 5.0 on the Richter Scale has been confirmed to be the largest in recorded history.
Researchers with the University of Utah said the slide, which was large enough to bury New York’s Central Park under 66 feet of debris, sent 165 million tons of materials into a large open-pit copper mine.
“We don’t know of any case until now where landslides have been shown to trigger earthquakes,” Jeff Moore, assistant professor of geology and geophysics, told Fox News.
The blessing in the natural disaster is that the mining company that ran the copper mine noticed the shifting of the Earth and evacuated their workers. However, 14 giant trucks were buried by the slide and the company was forced to layoff a large part of their work force.
The force of the slide was strong enough to crack the bedrock under the mine resulting in 16 smaller earthquakes in the region.
