About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Another 4.5 earthquake shakes southern Illinois - CNN.com

Another quake shakes southern Illinois - CNN.com
A 4.5-magnitude earthquake shook southern Illinois early Monday, the latest in a string of quakes that have rattled the region since last week, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake -- the 18th since a magnitude 5.2 hit the area Friday morning -- was centered about six miles below ground and about 37 miles (60 km) north-northwest of Evansville, Indiana, or about 131 miles (211 km) east of St. Louis.

"I thought, 'Here we go again,'" said Potter, who also felt Friday's initial earthquake and many of those that have followed. "The big concern is ... is this just the beginning of the 'big one?'"

The 18 quakes that followed Friday's moderate temblor have predominantly been minor earthquakes -- magnitude 3.9 and below.

Friday's quake was the strongest to hit in the region in 40 years.

There were reports of minor damage in the region.

Video from Louisville, Kentucky showed debris from the ornamental facade of a building's roofline that fell onto a sidewalk and shattered.

People as far north as Chicago and as far west as St. Louis reported feeling the initial quake, the USGS reported.

"The largest historical earthquake in the region -- magnitude 5.4 -- damaged southern Illinois in 1968," the USGS said.
