7.0 earthquake strikes near Vanuatu in South Pacific

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck Sunday morning off the southern tip of the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake struck about 75 miles (122 km) southeast of Isangel, the administrative capital of the island of Tanna, and 134 miles (217 km) northeast of New Caledonia's Loyalty Islands.

A tsunami alert has not been issued for the South Pacific or the U.S. western coast.

  2. the bible

    If you believe in the bible, why do you believe that God is making these EQ's increase? For according to the bible, God has never executed anyone without providing them with ample warning. Jonah warned warned people God was going to execute them if they didn't change their ways. Noah, a "preacher of righteousness" according to the Apostle Paul, spent about 50 years building that ark that was bigger than Yankee Stadium when complete, warning his neighbors the whole time that God was going to make it rain on them 'till they all drowned...they laughed at him and called him crazy. even Jesus himself warned the Jewish people, and invited them to become his followers. Why? Because he knew that Rome was set to destroy Jerusalem, and they did some 30 years later. an historical FACT...

  3. the bible

    ...So why do believer's in God's word the bible believe that God caused EQ's to decimate Haiti? Because some phony preacher man told you so. These EQ's are NOT God's judgements against us. They are warnings for us all that God's wrath is coming "like a thief in the night", and it's time to straighten-up our ways. And really, there will never be Peace on Earth before there is peace between mankind and God, who offered his very own Son to become your leader here on earth and even now, and forever more as the rightful ruler of this earth he made special just for us. Thank you for reading this, and pls., if you have any questions...I'm all ears.
