Dominicans put on notice as island records ‘volcanic earthquakes’


 Share This On:


(CMC) — The Office of Disaster Management (ODM) Saturday said that Dominica was being rattled by a series of shallow earthquakes, particularly in the south central area of the island and urged the population to remain vigilant.

It said that the burst of “volcanic earthquakes” which began late on Friday night and is continuing had a magnitude of 3.1 to 3.4 at five kilometres deep and that “the shallower the earthquake is the more they are felt.

“The activity is part of an ongoing series of earthquakes in that area which may be described as volcanic unrest. The unrest does not necessarily mean that an eruption will occur, but as seen in 1998, large magnitude earthquakes can occur and so the public should remain vigilant,” the ODM said in its latest bulletin.

It said that “all should be aware that we are living on a volcanic island and these events are likely to occur from time to time so be prepared for continuous activities”.

Earlier, the Trinidad-based Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the St Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) said that while some of these volcanic eruptions “have been reported as felt” the activity “is part of an ongoing series of earthquakes in that area which may be described as volcanic unrest”

It said that from 2000-2004 there was similar volcanic unrest activity that did not culminate in an eruption.

The ODM said it would continue to work with the SRC to keep Dominicans informed of the ongoing situation adding “all are asked to listen to your radio stations and other credible media for updates”.

  1. The islands were formed by volcanic eruptions, this has never really stopped so what is the curse to which you refer? Generally there are around 20 volcanoes actively erupting at any particular time, causing earthquakes. This doesn't compare to some of the worse earthquakes E.g. 1960-Valdivia, 1995-Montserrat, 2010-Haiti, 2019-Hawaii. Of the deadliest volcanic eruptions only one - 1902-Pelée, Martinique, is in the C'bn.
    The lord didn't come after these, so why you bawling king is coming now? Are you sure he wom't come like a thief in the night maybe? With no warning?
    If we have to base end-times on natural disasters issa FAIL! Just google. Remember to include other natural disasters such as cold-snaps, blizzards, avalanches, tornadoes, etc. Smh!

    I Proclaim on the rooftops that the “King is coming to redeem the earth of its curse.”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
    The father says: Much of what is beautiful to you now will be destroyed in the coming years as I withdraw, first, one and then another of my blessings from those who have refused to acknowledge me. Few of my children will remain in this time though some shall, that souls maybe led into my kingdom; they will be well protected as my disciples were until time for them to come to me. Fear none of these things I tell you of, only be aware and prepare your hearts. I am going to touch America’s economy in such a way as to remove much of the wealth of the very rich who refuse to acknowledge me or do my will. They will lie on their own provision; not mine, so they will have no need of me. I will show them that their way is the wrong way.
    When I touch America’s economy, many will “wail and weep” because mammon was their god and I will render the mammon powerless to help them. They will see then that their false god’s will do them no good. I will bring them to their knees, and few will get to know me then, but many will not. Be prepared, my children, as when I touch that economy it will also affect you. There will be much job loss and wailing as those who depended on their mammon god will weep and wail their loses and I will do it in a way you know it was my hand. There will be signs for all to see it was I who touched it. When you see the economy falling, look for me in the signs and you will see it was I who brought this upon men. When I begin to touch America’s economy, violence will increase as men become desperate, there will be much civil unrest. Begin to prepare for this as it will rise up suddenly and as it crescendos, men will shout blames at one another, and war will break out. I’m drawing the line between my sheep and the goats who serve the enemy of your souls.

    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent now, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.
