According to the Christian Post, Puerto Ricans have been praying under a massive cloud of uncertainty about the future since earthquakes began to affect the island. On Tuesday, January 7, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake left one person dead and significant damage to buildings. On one occasion as the people of Puerto Rico formed a massive prayer circle in Ponce and prayed, there was a rainbow in the skies above them. Earthquake aftershocks are causing damage and fear. Thousands are sleeping outdoors to avoid calamity. But there is a refusal by many to be mentally defeated and they possess a faith fuelled belief that this too will pass.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has highlighted the likely scenarios that could play out for the island over the next three weeks. According to the agency, there is a 3% chance of an earthquake significantly larger than the Magnitude 6.4 that occurred on January 7. But it is felt that this is a very small probability. If such an earthquake were to occur anyhow, it would have serious impacts on communities nearby. This size earthquake would also trigger its own aftershock sequence, so the rate of small and moderate earthquakes would increase again.
The USGS noted that the most likely scenario they expect to unfold, based on the current seismic activity, is that aftershocks will continue to decrease in frequency and will be significantly lower in magnitude than the Magnitude 6.4. It was also noted that an earthquake occurring of similar size as the magnitude 6.4, could also occur in an event called a “doublet.” A doublet emerges when two large earthquakes of similar size occur closely in time and location. If this happens, additional damage as well as increased aftershocks would be likely.
“The earthquakes in these scenarios would occur in the areas where aftershocks are happening now. Earthquakes in this sequence will continue to occur for days, months, or potentially years to come. It is very unlikely the aftershocks will cease completely within the next month,” the USGS said.
us remember to pray for Puerto Rico that in the midst of this situation, the
voice of God will be heard in the lives of the residents and that they will
respond positively to His call. God uses these situations to get our attention.
The Bible says,” And there will be great earthquakes in various
places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great
signs from heaven.”(Luke 21:11). We are living in the last days.
