Earthquake in Illinois.

Tom's Journal.

I live about 10 miles North from the below mentioned Salem, WI, and this is too close for comfort. Actually, I have never known what an earthquake feels like and I thought that Wisconsin was immune to them.
Matthew 24: 7, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and EARTHQUAKES, in divers place." [verse 8] "All these are the beginning of sorrow."

I promised myself that I would refrain from 'predicting', betting on certain future events, like a big new war in the Middle East after nothing went down in the month of January. Fact is: things don't happen because I THINK they will happen, but the God of the Bible knows when and where things will happen, IMHO. I just wonder what, if anything, will happen tomorrow, Thursday, like the big religious leader of Iran predicted. Plan for the worst -- pray for GOD'S WILL TO BE DONE. I am thinking that in the worst scenario, our oil supply could be cut off in the straits of Hamus, that bottle neck where all the oil tanker ships pass, near Iran. If that comes true, Americans will have a big surprise in humility and hardship.... and I don't want to see that.


Illinois Earthquake Felt in Milwaukee

By Jay Sorgi

MILWAUKEE - A 3.8-magnitude earthquake centered in Virgil, Illinois was felt as far away as the Milwaukee metropolitan area early Wednesday morning.

The quake happened just before 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, 85 miles south-southwest of Milwaukee.

People in our area felt their homes shaking from the quake.

"I was kind of dozing, and around 4:00 a.m., all of a sudden, it was like I felt the floor felt like it was moving, shaking, a ripple effect for a while, and I thought 'maybe it was a plow dropping the blade or dragging it,' " Deb, who lives in Walker's Point, said to Newsradio 620 WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News.

"It lasted a little bit like 10 seconds. It was a very strong, rippled kind of odd feeling. I woke up and I thought, 'this isn't right. This is crazy.' "

Tell us your story about feeling the earthquake
Lynn in Wauwatosa told TODAY'S TMJ4 HD's "Live at Daybreak" that her whole house shook.

"I was to the point where I was sitting there and I was shaking enough that I'd better get up and maybe wake my husband up and start moving or something," said Lynn.

"I live in Watertown and felt the earthquake," said Savannah, who is 12 years old, "and I woke up to feel it! The pictures on the walls and windows rattled. Not knowing what it was, I ask my mother what the big bang was, and who was running in the house. It sounded like a someone was running through the kitchen."

"My TV went out," said Sharon Holmes, who lives in Salem, Wisconsin - five miles from the Illinois border. "My cupboards made a noise (and) shook."

The quake woke up Kathy in Fort Atkinson, who told TODAY'S TMJ4 HD she was sound asleep.

"I have four birds," said Kathy. "I have two small ones that flipped out, and I have one large dog that started yelling. I was sound asleep, and they woke me up."

Brian, who lives in Kenosha, says he lived in Southern California for 27 years.

"This is the 3rd i have felt since i been back here it was strong enough to wake me up," said Brian.

"I woke up when our house moved," said Angele, who lives in Shorewood.

"Our garage motion detectors went off and at first it felt like thunder in the distance. I was thinking the winds were very strong with the snow storm we must be having, but when I looked outside there was no snow blowing or plows on our street. I was thinking this was unlike any weather I had ever felt. My son woke up too and he felt the table next to his bed moving. He said it was eerie."

"I felt the rumble and quickly woke up,," said Heidi, who felt it in Delafield. "I thought I was at my old house that was next to railroad tracks. Once I realized that it couldn't be a train I looked at my phone to check the time, it was exactly 4:00! I couldn't wait to find out this morning if it really was a quake or if I was just a quack."

"As earthquakes go, it's pretty weak," said Storm Team 4Caster Craig Koplien. "It's strong enough to affect areas from DeKalb, Illinois, all the way to Southeast Wisconsin."

Beware these calamities note of end times. Prepare ye all for the moment when it is the end. It will not ever be known and will be a certain shock. Husbands lead your house and prepare your families to know what it is to be prepared in your spirit. Do not for a moment think these natural events are not related to the end.
