4.2 magnitude earthquake strikes the Netherlands

September 8, 2011AmsterdamA 4.2 magnitude earthquake has struck about 96 km southeast of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The earthquake struck at the depth of 14.3 km (8.9 miles) and would have been strong enough to cause some buildings to tremble. The epicenter of the earthquake was 48 km (29 miles) S of Apeldoorn, The Netherlands and 96 km (59 miles) SE of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The last earthquake to strike the Netherlands was a 2.9 offshore earthquake that struck 55 km NW of Amsterdam on October 11, 2009. Clearly, this latest quake was large enough to rattle nerves across the country. –The Extinction Protocol

    I just felt the earthquake. I was on the couch reading this forum about eartquakes.
    I’m new into this. Earthquakes are extremely rare in the Netherlands. I’m shocked. So surreal. :O

    This afternoon i told my wife i felt something coming. There was somethhing in the air. I’m a muslim and earthquake are a sign of the end of days.

    Funny thing was: during the quake i was thinking: I’m reading about quackes to much. I’m imagining things. Then a turned on the tv to see of there was some disaster is going on in
    somewere in the world. A 4.6 struck my place. Unbelievable.

    About 12 km from the epicenter. Minor tremor but my couch moved a couple of inches. Earthquake’s are VERY rare in the Netherlands, especially in this region. My wall mounted tv survived tough ;-). Great blog by the way, Best updated earth change website I’ve seen until now. I check it daily. Keep up the good work!

    P.s Alvin to be honest I’m in doubt about buying your book for a while, since I’m secular/agnostic. I do know the scriptures but kinda skeptical about dogmatic interpretations. Is your book written from a specific religious standpoint or is it incorporated in a scientific whole?



    • Thanks for the report, TLTL —- Science and the Bible and it you feel led to purchase it do so if no; then by all means, follow your unction. I believe in God and write about Him extensively in the book. You’re welcome here anytime..no purchase required. I post any discount coupons I get so people can save as much money as they can on purchases as a lot of the buyers are international. Thanks for weighing in and best wishes always.

      The long time lurker:
      The book is a great investment for anyone interested in the events now unfolding. It has an unbelievable amount of knowledge to absorb.
      Keep in mind, most of the supposed non-fiction books we read contain things we are skeptical of. Noone has everything figured out yet, but some (like Alvin) seem to be more gifted.
      As events talked about in the books take place, you will be glad to have the book for reference and explanations. It will also enlighten you as what may unfold next. I highly recommend it.
      As far a the Bible references, I like them because for me it give more credibility to the prophecies. But for those that don’t care to read that, it’s easy to just skip over.

    I’m in Amsterdam, didn’t feel a thing here….we’re not really in a good position for earthquakes…. I wonder how the architecture will fare under such stresses…!!

    I live about 75km from the epicenter and i felt a light tremble, just like a heavy truck passing. Quakes in this area are not very common. Once every while we have a very small one. In 1992 we had a 5.8 in the same area.
    There are a few faults in the area: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/Roerdal_graben_map_NL.svg

    I believe this is the first time i have felt a quake in my life.
    However i’m not really concerned about the future.

    They say in the news here in the Netherlands ( I live in the Netherlands ) that it was a 4.5

    Now I’m just waiting on Russia’s earthquake….

    Wikipedia says: The netherlands is a geographically low-lying country, with about 25% of its area and 21% of its population located below sea level and 50% of its land lying less than one metre above sea level.
    Be careful and watchful please in the time we live.

    Long time lurker –

    Do yourself a favor and set your preconceived misconceptions aside and buy the book. Personally, I can honestly say my knowledge base has increased 100x over on about 100+ different topics. I’m diggin’ it…

    I have discovered a love for science no doubt.

    May God bless the people of the Netherlands, and may He use this recent quake activity to heighten the awareness levels of the people which might lead them to prepare accordingly for future shakings that are sure to come.


  10. I didn’t feel it in Amsterdam and just heard it… 🙂

      I’m with you strictlyhonest. I also have visions and dreams and a couple of days ago I saw the tsumai wave and was told. Like you, I know this will impact the world. But I don’t have any more information. Usually with earthquakes and volcanic disruptions, I have a general ideal of the area. This one I did not, at least not yet…..Robin

    I don’t know where to put this, so I’ll put it here. I am intuitive and I see many visions – all in metaphor. This morning about 8am EST I had a vision of a huge tsumami to the right of my vision field. As I looked to the right, the vision moved to the front of my vision field. I could see a large, large wave – tsumai-like sitting out on the ocean. What ocean I don’t know. What is important to pay attention to is that the vision moved from my right vision to in front of me. I’ve been told that visions to the right mean in the future, and visions to the front mean real time. As I saw the vision move to my front view, I asked “is this coming at me?” The answer was “not yet.” I’ve had many visions of ocean waves since the early 1990’s and they always mean change. Usually, it’s personal change for me. However, I think this one is different. From my point of view (and only my point of view), I believe this is a message to all of us that a major change is coming. What it is exactly I don’t know. I find it ironic that I would have this vision on the day Obama had his “pep rally” speech about how things will get better with the US. Correlation? I’m not sure. Just offering up what I’ve seen.

    “Nearly every nation is now overpopulated in terms of a perpetual balance with nature. We are like a fleet of overcrowded lifeboats confronted with an approaching tempest. In the United States of America we are seriously overtaxing our resources to maintain our present population in the existing state of prosperity. We are destroying our farmland and we have grown dangerously dependent upon external sources for oil, metals and other nonrenewable resources. Nations such as Japan, Holland and Haiti are even more seriously overpopulated and, therefore, in greater jeopardy.
    “In these circumstances, reproduction is no longer exclusively a personal matter. Society must have a voice and some power of direction in regulating this vital function. The wishes of human couples are important, but not paramount. The interests of present society and the welfare of future generations must be given increasing consideration as we develop mechanisms to bring rational control to our childbearing.”
    (From the Georgia Guidestones Guidebook)

    Well, we all know what happened to Japan and Haiti! If I lived in Holland, I would be looking to get out of there, pronto!
