Alert! Michael Snyder breaks down recent Perry Stone prophecy

Tsunami-Coming

Important Takeaways:

  • Another Tsunami Prophecy – When Will The American People Start Listening To The Warnings?
  • We have been warned for decades that someday gigantic tsunamis will hit the United States. Unfortunately, most of the population is not interested in such warnings at all.
  • Perry Stone has had a number of “tsunami dreams” over the years, and on November 9th he had another one which greatly startled him.
    • …he reveals that he was shown that the tsunami threat is caused by a large earthquake…
  • Stone then transitioned into a series of dreams he has had over the years, specifically focusing on tsunami scenarios affecting various coastal areas of the United States. While clarifying that he does not actively seek such visions, Stone shared a recent dream from Nov. 9, in which he witnessed an earthquake and the subsequent threat of a tsunami.
  • “I do not go to bed thinking about tsunamis. I do not ask God to show me events concerning tsunamis. As a matter of fact, these dreams often come at a time when I least expect it,” Stone reveals.
  • According to Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger, the Cascadia Subduction Zone has the potential to cause an earthquake that is “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything that the San Andreas Fault is capable of producing…
  • Such a quake would have the ability to create a giant tsunami that could potentially destroy everything west of Interstate 5 in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Needless to say, we have never seen a disaster of that magnitude in the entire history of our country, and we are completely and utterly unprepared for it.
  • Goldfinger claims…The tsunami would bring water 20 to 80 – maybe even 100 – feet higher than today’s high tides. Most of the structures that have survived the killer quake but built too low will be smashed into by a devastating wall of water. And the next surge could be even higher, and the one after that higher still.
    • It won’t just be the water causing destruction, but everything it picks up.
  • A number of years ago, the former head of FEMA’s Region X was quoted by the New Yorker as saying that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast”…

Earthquake-damage-Philippines

Important Takeaways:

  • In Japan, authorities issued evacuation orders in various parts of Okinawa Prefecture affecting thousands of people. Okinawa is more than 1,200 miles from Mindanao.

Based on the quake’s magnitude, Bacolcol said a 3.2-foot tsunami could hit, but the wave could be higher in enclosed coves, bays and straits.
