First, we turn to an update on the current situation facing America - by Joel Rosenberg:
As I discuss in-depth in the two-hour — which will air on more than 700 radio stations this coming weekend — we live at a very dangerous moment in American history. It is a time when the Lord God Almighty is trying to get our attention and call us to repent of our sins and turn back to faith in Jesus Christ and back to reading and obeying the Bible. At the moment, we are far from God and far off track as a nation. Massive debt. Skyrocking murder and violent crime. More than 53 million abortions. The stain of pornography. The list of our sins is getting longer and longer each year. Yet the country has not yet woken up and realized that turning our collective backs on God is a recipe for judgment and disaster.
The USGS has recorded nearly 50 aftershocks from the 7.7-magnitude earthquake that rocked an island off Canada's west coast on Saturday night.
The largest aftershock, measuring 6.3, was recorded at 11:54 a.m. Other aftershocks ranged between 4.0 and 5.5.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles (5 kilometers) and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland.
The Haida Gwaii region continues to feel the aftershocks of a violent earthquake measuring 7.7 that jolted British Columbia's north-central coast Saturday night, frightening residents and forcing many to temporarily leave their homes for higher ground ahead of a possible tsunami.
The numbers tell the story (below is just a random subset of the 50):
etc. x50. The largest appear to be in the 6.0 range; that's quite an aftershock.
Also Sunday, a minor earthquake has rattled Southern California, shaking buildings in downtown Los Angeles. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-3.9 quake struck at 8:24 a.m. and was centered about eight kilometres east-southeast of Santa Clarita, Calif.Shaking was felt across the Santa Clarita Valley, in downtown Los Angeles and in West Hollywood.There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.
