Strong 6 magnitude Iran quake near Strait of Hormuz kills child, causes damage

May 11, 2013IRAN A strong earthquake of 6.2 magnitude hit southern Iran early today, killing one child and injuring at least 20 others in remote, mountainous villages, state television reported. The US Geological Survey registered the quake at 0738 IST, measured at 85 kilometres (52 miles) southeast of the town of Minab, located in the southern Hormuzgan province and off the Strait of Hormuz. The quake was registered at a depth of 36.44 kilometres (22.64 miles), the USGS said. A local emergency official said a two-year-old died of serious injuries. “The child passed away on route to hospital,” Mohammad Shekari was quoted by the ISNA news agency. Iran’s top quake rescue operations official, Mahmoud Mozafar, said at least 20 people had been injured. Iran sits astride several major fault lines and is prone to frequent earthquakes, some of which have been devastating. Head of Iran’s National Institute for Oceanography Vahid Chegini said today’s quake was unlikely to spark a tsunami in the Gulf or the Sea of Oman. “The chances of a tsunami because of today’s quake are remote as the quake was inland,” Chegini told the Mehr news agency. Mozafar, who heads Iran’s Red Crescent rescue corps, said rescue teams were dispatched to Hormuzgan’s remote area hit by the quake. Provincial emergency chief Hossein Ranjbar told state television that some 70 villages had suffered severe damage in the quake, which according to Iran’s Seismological Centre was followed by a series of aftershocks, measuring between 4.1 and 5.2. Media reports said electricity and telephone connection had been cut, while rescue teams were attempting to open blocked roads to the quake-hit areas. Last month, the biggest earthquake to hit the country in 50 years, measuring 7.8 killed a woman and injured more than a dozen other people in the southeast. At least 40 people were killed across the border in Pakistan where hundreds of mud homes were leveled. Putting aside America’s longstanding enmity with Iran and its more recent strains in relations with Pakistan, US Secretary of State John Kerry had offered condolences and assistance with relief work for last month’s quake. Also in April, another quake struck near Iran’s Gulf port city of Bushehr, killing at least 30 people. The UN’s atomic agency said there was no damage to Iran’s only and Russian-built nuclear power plant at Bushehr. Iran said the plant continued its operations as normal. –Times of India
Coincidence? This is the second major earthquake to strike close to a region, when military tensions were high and U.S. military forces were conducting multinational exercises nearby. On April 5, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck near the border area between Russia, China and North Korea, when tensions were running high between Pyongyang and Washington. The 6.2 quake (downgraded by USGS) which struck Iran, near the Middle East stress choke-point of the Strait of Hormuz, comes at a time when 41 nations are conducting naval exercises in the Strait. Will anyone finally get the message that starting a major war, involving potential weapons of mass destruction, could result in something worst than a war? In Revelation 11:18, God said He would destroy those that destroy the earth.

    Maybe the message is if you start a war with america they have weapons of mass destruction that can wipe you out but make it look like a natural disaster. Ionospheric heating? Plasma weapons?

    Concerning earthquakes…..Today, for the 1st time in about 6 weeks, I also received an email alert from USGS site of the 6.5 Earthquake from the Tonga Region and I remember receiving consistent reports 2-3 years of daily temors it seemed in this area and this is the first time, can I recall a 6.0 plus in this area.

    It seems a very obvious point that these war tensions would bring our Creator to remind us that humans were made for the earth and the earth for humans (along with the wildlife kingdom). You would think that after a while these poor warmongers and controllers would think to themselves – “How nice it would be to love and be loved!” Earth “thinks” this all the time because it was created to be gardened by loving humans so that is its natural expectation. Ahh well, prayer and patience til we all get it!

    Hopefully they’ll get the message, the sings are obvious; but satan blinds ppl…. Let’s start or keep praying…

    Why blame God for earthquakes? Twice the U.S. has been threatened and twice a very conveniently placed earthquake strikes those who threatened. We (the US) probably have the technology. Just because you have it doesn’t mean you should use it. The process you initiate may have consequences beyond your ability to stop.

    That means there will be those that are destroying the earth. It is inevitable. Jeremiah 25:33 says “those slain will be like manure on the surface of the earth”.
