Powerful Earthquakes Shake Alaska and Papua New Guinea

A powerful 6.7 earthquake shook the Aleutian Island region of Alaska Saturday evening, setting off a swarm of powerful earthquakes in what is known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. Two more powerful earthquakes struck Papua New Guinea on Sunday evening, one a 7.2, striking at a depth of 36 miles below the ocean floor, and the second quake, a 7.1 located in the same area at a depth of 31 miles beneath the ocean floor.

Meanwhile, unrelated to the Papua New Guinea earthquakes, Taiwan also suffered a 5.3 earthquake on Sunday evening, around 9 p.m. local time with no reports of damage or casualties. The earthquake was centered in the ocean, about 47 miles east of Hualien City at a depth of 10 miles.

These are some pretty strong earthquakes occurring more frequently, and we should all take notice to what the Lord is saying in Matthew's Gospel Chapter 24.
