And the mountains shall give way…
(8/23/11) Update…. Breaking News…. This Just In…. News Flash…. The mountains have given way. Check this out from the news wire today:
“USGS: Colorado Experiences Largest Quake in More than 40 Years”
Excerpt from the Story:
“The quake’s epicenter was seven miles southwest of Cokedale, and 180 miles south of Denver. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
A dispatcher at the sheriff’s office in Las Animas County, which includes Cokedale, said the quake lasted almost 30 seconds. The office received reports of rocks falling on a highway and of some structure damage.
It was the largest in a series of earthquakes that struck the area. As of 5 a.m. local time (7 a.m. ET), the USGS reported seven quakes centered just south of Cokedale since midnight.”
FYI… I was in Cokedale three weeks ago. It’s an old coal mining village with impressive hillside ruins. In fact, the photo in “John’s Seven Signs: No. 1” was taken just southwest of there. Oh, about seven miles.
