6.5 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Guatemala

November 12, 2012GUATEMALAA 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck this afternoon in the Pacific off the western coast of Guatemala, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. Striking about 17 miles (27 kilometers) below sea level, the tremor was centered about 19 miles west-southwest of Champerico, Guatemala, and 115 miles from the capital, Guatemala City. The quake was not far from southern Mexico, with the USGS reporting it was 27 miles south-southeast of the border community of Suchiate, Mexico. Earlier Sunday, the U.S. agency had said it was a 6.2-magnitude tremor, but later revised the report with the higher magnitude. It was followed by a number of significant aftershocks with magnitudes as strong as 5.0. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that “based on all available data, a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected.” Sunday’s earthquake is the second major one in four days to strike the region. The quake triggered at least four strong aftershocks. Last Wednesday morning, a powerful 7.4-magnitude tremor struck in the same area – about 22 miles from the coastal town of Champerico – at a depth of 15 miles. At least 52 people were killed in its aftermath, according to President Otto Perez Molina. Hundreds more were injured, while more than 2,200 homes were damaged. That earthquake was the strongest to hit Guatemala since 1976, when one with a magnitude of 7.5 killed about 23,000 people, Molina said. -CNN

  2. Alvin, my heart and prayers go out to these people first and foremost, the media is not giving it much coverage, there have been several 5.0 and above quakes today, there and in Burma, and even new Guinea. It seems to be escalating. I hope and pray that more are preparing, physically and mentally and spiritually. .

    • Unfortunately, as the incidents are increasing; so is apathy and denial. Greater and greather grows the pools of darkess around those, whose eyes have fastened onto the light.

        But why is that Alvin? What more proof do they need? What has to happen for them to get it? The earthquake of Revelation 6???

        We have to realize the majority of the world will be lost and most won’t survive the changes that are shortly set to befall the earth. This message of warning is almost concluded. A period of probationary time, before calamity, is given to all to set their houses in order and amend their lives to the urgency of the message. To those who seek the light now, more light will shine in the darkness, in regard to these messages. To those who refuse the light now; greater darkness will follow the course of their own actions. As the Bible warned us what will happen to those who continue to reject light and mercies: “If they hear not Moses and the prophets; neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.” “Then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth (snatches) away that which was sown in their hearts.” Matthew 13: 19 “The wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 12:10 Their last state is worst than the first. The ground is parched and dry and the rain will no longer fall to bring relief from the searing heat of distress that will gnaw away at the quietude of nations. In great distress and anguish, a great cry shall echo throughout the land: “The harvest is past: the summer is ended and we are not saved.” Jeremiah 8:20
