6.6 magnitude quake strikes Guatemala: planet reeling from series of powerful earthquakes

Guatemala 9 6
September 7, 2013 GUATEMALAA 6.6-magnitude earthquake has hit Guatemala’s Pacific coastline, US seismologists say. The US Geological Survey said the quake struck around three miles (6km) south of Pajapita, at a depth of 42 miles (68km). Guatemala’s fire department issued a statement saying a few poorly-built homes were destroyed in the town of Patzicia, located between the epicenter and the capital. The quake was felt strongly in Guatemala City, the capital, and caused blackouts in some areas, but authorities have not reported any immediate injuries or damage. “People living in Guatemala City’s tall buildings were panicked,” said Eddy Sanchez, director of Guatemala’s National Institute of Seismology.  The Central American nation’s natural disaster agency said a major highway was blocked by a landslide. The quake was also reportedly felt in neighboring Mexico and El Salvador, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in both countries. The tremor was one of the strongest in Guatemala since a 7.4-magnitude earthquake last November killed 44 people in the west of the country. It was the strongest in 36 years and left thousands of people homeless and without electricity or water. –KLFM

      Yes, a person has a sight with a list of the earthquakes every year, since the 1950s. These last 4 years have made up for the last 100 plus. Now, the big question is why? And why is every planet in our solar system having the same situation, weather change, earthquakes, etc. Does Marshall Masters have the answer?

    It seems likely the war in Syria serves only as a distraction from an imminent planetary level extinction event……

    I am going to Guatemala at the end of this month. This is my first international mission. Pray that if God allows any earth changing events while I am there that I will not let it distract me from showing Jesus to the people around me.
