To say we are currently under a global state of unrest is putting things MILDLY.

This is the time to be on HIGH preparedness alert ! Two large 6.9M and 6.2M earthquakes have now struck southern california…

That is on TOP of the 8.9M, 8.7M, 8.2M, 6.0M in sumatra.. on TOP of the 7.0M in Mexico.. on TOP of the 6.0M off the coast of Oregon… on TOP of the 6.1M in Japan… on TOP of the 4.5 off the EAST COAST new england.. on TOP of the 4.8 in south Utah… all in less than 24 hours !

Not counting tornadoes in Puerto Rico, or FOUR FEET OF HAIL in texas !

needless to say.. be on the watch and be prepared… food, water, shelter, transportation, communications, and self defense — these basic needs MUST be met in order for anyone to survive for longer than a few days.

don’t be scared — BE PREPARED !  know the facts, share the information.. let loved ones know .

  1. Hey Dutch, first, thank you!

    Next, what is up with the ANSS seis graphs? Are they going bonkers? Or are the being coveredover? They are almost solid they are so marked up?

    Much love back!
