7.7 magnitude earthquake creates new island off the coast of Pakistan- death toll likely to rise

Earthchange event: The 7.7 magnitude oblique-strike-slip earthquake was so powerful, it raised new land out of the Arabian sea.
September 24, 2013 PAKISTAN A massive, 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck south-central Pakistan on Tuesday afternoon local time. The USGS warns that there will high casualties and economic losses, requiring international response. Seismologists have also confirmed that the quake raised a new island, about 30-40 feet high, off the coast. The island is about half a mile off the coast of Gwadar, in the Arabian Sea. Already, reports the International Herald Tribune, crowds have gathered to see the mountainous, rocky island. Some are claiming it is 100 feet high. It’s not unusual for earthquakes of this magnitude to change the coastline, or even deform the shape of the planet. In 2010, an 8.8 magnitude quake in Chile created new coastlines in that country and changed the shape of the Earth enough to shorten our days by a fraction of a second. Today in Pakistan, estimates of damages are still coming in, and it may be days before we know the full extent of the losses because the quake struck in many regions that are remote. The nearest city to the epicenter is Arawan, where damage is said to be extensive, with houses collapsing and people trapped inside. So far, death tolls hover around 40, but that number is expected to rise as emergency services reach more of the affected areas. The populations near the epicenter may be sparse, but according to the USGS, the problem is that they are extremely vulnerable.
Most homes are made of materials like unreinforced brick masonry, which crumble quickly in quakes and can be deadly. Karachi is another nearby city, with millions of residents, whose homes may have also been affected. People as far away as New Delhi report feeling the quake. The USGS also offers a quick scientific summary of the nature of the quake: The September 24, 2013 M7.7 earthquake in south-central Pakistan occurred as the result of oblique-strike-slip type motion at shallow crustal depths. The location and mechanism of the earthquake are consistent with rupture within the Eurasia plate above the Makran subduction zone. The event occurred within the transition zone between northward subduction of the Arabia plate beneath the Eurasia plate and northward collision of the India plate with the Eurasia plate. The epicenter of the event is 69km north of Awaran, Pakistan, and 270km north of Karachi, Pakistan (population 11.6 million). Right now, as emergency groups gather more information, the best thing we can do is wait to find out more. But it’s very likely that humanitarian aid will be needed, and as soon as we know more we’ll offer an update. –I09

    Wow…I was meditating on how the Christians are being persecuted in Pakistan, then an earthquake, now this. And the song We Won’t Be Shaken by Building 429 ended as I pulled up this posting…

    In the texts hidden by Nostradamus – Bahre will “become as Nepal”
    There is an entire pdf forum titled BAHRE at the web site, even mentioned the volcanic island newly formed recently in the Red sea, but then Saudi Arabia becomes the north pole, thus making Bahre a snowy mountain area

    Reminds me of the January 2013 report of a new island having emerged from North Sea waters off the German coast . which was said to have formed over just 10 year period … and that the island’s rapid appearance had surprised scientists who were familiar with Germany’s North Sea coast … and reported that such an island formed in just a few years was very impressive,” and further stated such an occurrence was anything but ordinary.”…also stated that despite the youthful age of the sickle-shaped island, it was already home to around 50 different plant species and popular with sea birds such as herring gulls and oyster catchers,

    As for me I tend to view both these new appearances of islands from a possible celestial side of understanding .. and the possibility of such a new island like the one in Pakistan and in Germany waters, to actually be underwater structure which has always been part of the ocean floor, just cloaked or shifted outside our frequency viewing range … and now that some force has shaken them a-loose they set topside … and appearances could simply be camouflaged hiding their true forms … as either could be some sort of a disabled celestial craft depleted of life support … (it’s more than one way the sea can give up it’s dead) …

    Now in time … if by chance their appearances seem to be destroyed or vanishes during a seemingly serious storm as suggested in the Germany island report … I would then consider that an ion acceleration process and quantum leap would have taken the structures to Higher celestial grounds …

    Interesting how this happened a day after so many Christians are killed by suicide bombers in Pakistan. Makes one wonder.

      We’ve turned the corner…onto a one-way street. A few weeks ago, I warned the next thing we would start seeing is massive movements among tectonic plates. Such scenes will soon play out repeatedly across the breadth of the earth with more dire and dire consequences.

    It begs me to ask the question…why have we not heard this on our news? I’ve read several times on Facebook, nothing on my news. Are the residents of Pakistan not people who are as deserving of aid as any other? One may argue the people are terrorists, but I say not all, in fact a ver small percentage of the population are what we call terrorists, the bulk of the people are just like you and I, trying to get by, to raise their kids to be good human beings. Where is the aid? Where are the news reports? Has anyone given though to the simple fact if the outside world comes in and assists them, without reservation, the kids may just decide becoming a member of a terrorist cell just isn’t a great idea? Why hurt those who helped us? Someone needs to hold out the olive branch to help and create trust towards the west. Just where is the help?!

  11. Many prophecies from Edgar Cayce, Mitar Tarabic, Nostradamus etc. have all said that where there is land now, there will be water, and those places which are now water, will suddenly have land. The Earth is NOT static and we’re just another species like ants or grasshoppers, she’s doing us all a favor by allowing us to live on her. You can’t expect that to always be a constant guarantee forever.
