6/27/2015 — Rare M5.2 Earthquake strikes Egypt / Israel — “Dead Sea Fault” system

A very rare (and rather large) magnitude 5.2 earthquake has struck Northern Egypt near the Jordan / Israel border along the Dead Sea Fault zone.

In an ironic twist of fate, the earthquake occurred at the exact reported location where Moses crossed in Exodus from Egypt when God parted the waters of the sea.

The actual location of the earthquake falls in the Gulf of Aqaba, in the South Sinai Negev Deserts.

Worthy to note the very large volcanic fields to the Southeast, and also (unmarked volcanic buttes) across the Gulf of Aqaba to the West , which are interlaced with the mountain range.

There is not much earthquake activity in this region normally, thus to see a 5.2 strike this area in particular, leads to a supposition on my part that this may be related to the large volcanic complex to the South, and runs along the fault line seen in the Gulf of Aqaba, North through Israel / Jordan.

The earthquake occurred along the “Dead Sea Fault”.  Also known as the “Dead Sea Transform”.

UPDATE June 27, 2015 535pm CDT:

Ironically, several viewers reported this is the historically known location of where Moses supposedly crossed the Red Sea after God parted the waters.

I just checked, and indeed it is the EXACT spot that historical legend reports!
