6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes near Solomon Islands

Solomon Is July 4
July 5, 2013SOLOMON ISLANDS A strong 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck off the Solomon Islands on Friday, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said, but there was no immediate tsunami warning issued. The tremor, at a depth of 72 kilometers (45 miles), hit at 4.16am local time (17:16 GMT Thursday) 81km south of the town of Panguna in Papua New Guinea. The USGS issued a “green alert,” to say there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. In February the remote town of Lata was hit by a devastating tsunami after an 8.0-magnitude earthquake. The tsunami left at least 10 people dead, destroyed hundreds of homes and left thousands of people homeless.  The Solomons are part of the “Ring of Fire,” a zone of tectonic activity around the Pacific that is subject to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. –Times of India

    Alvin,
    Have you seen the 4th Horseman has shown itself in Egypt. Caught on camera. I won’t give you links, best you search and see yourself without any help.
    The pre-tribulation has started to save some from the coming events.
    God bless.
