The foolish man built his house upon the sand.
Anonymous,You clearly don't understand Mormon history. Joseph Smith
was dead long before the Momron's arrived in Utah. Point two, The Salt Lake
temple is not built exaclty on the fault line ( I know, I live here. ) I do,
however, live on the fault line more or less until I complete my schooling
here.The Salt Lake Temple was built at a geologicaly sound place, so
the temple should be fine when the big one goes off, however, the only reason
the temple could be destroyed is if the Mormons desicrated the temple in which
case it would be destroyed regardless where it was built; but, a slong as the
temple is not desicrated it should be fine.We'll see.
Yeah Uhm the earthquake has not happened yet you realize that right.So how
can you say how much damage there was.That is quite impossible to say how
many it killed when it did not happen.by the way I live in utah in SLC so
yes I would know if it happened.
Mormons really are stupid. Build the temple and city right on a fault line.
Yeah, God really told that Joseph Smith the right place to build! LOLOLOL. In
the end, a cult gets exactly what it deserves.
The Chinese were warned decades ago that they should build to stricter seismic
codes by Soviet Geologist. Then came this year's earthquake there, killing
thousands in schools.The Soviets also cut corners on building codes,
& underestimated the potential size of earthquakes in Armenia, an area with soft
soil like along the Wasatch Fault. 25,000 died there.Then, this
year's quake in Wells, Nevada. How would Salt Lake hold up in just a 6.0
earthquake like this? Stone & brick buildings would get into serious damage at
I am soooo aware of earthquakes now it is kinda scary if u ask me...
This freaks me out so bad! there is supposed to be something about the eathquake
on the news tomorrow night at nine.Watch it
this is really a wake up call...wow... people need to be ready for this...i dont
know how it will be...but i hope god can help us endure this, we have to be
What happened to the follow-up articles? I can't find them in the archives.
I think its happening right now!Wait...that's just severe gas, but
BOY what a rumble!Still, this helps me be a bit more freaked out
about just moving to SLC.
The point of this artical is to raise awarness not to predict the next
earthquake. It might not be for thousands of years it might happen as I'm
people are saying it's supposed to happen today.and so far, i'm believing
it.there have been small quakes felt all morning in my office downtown,
and the big one in nevada happened yesterday. so much for february 2nd.and so much for having a leap year.
the big earthquake does't hit feb 2 It hits FEB 8 2008.How do i know god told
me.Tou can predict earthquakkes.(satelites)
Yes, It is very likely and the more people that areprepared the less worry
one will have and make it easier on the response teams. We need more
articalslike this to keep us alert.Thank you
Does anyone really think there is going to be an earthquake??? I mean
really...you can't predict earthquakes and even if they did...it's most likely
not going to happen. Everyone should know that earthquakes cannot be predicted.
It mostly is scaring the middle school students at my school. It's 5:00 p.m.
and still nothing has happened, so let's all just get over it.
at first i thought this really was going to happen until i read the scenario
part... oops.. very scary!! it really is a wake up call...
okay its 2:00 and nothing has happened welll so much for making a fort
Uhh yeah, I have experienced one big earthquake in my life so far, and that was
the 1989 Loma Prieta Quake in Cali. I was 7 years old. I'm not worried about me,
I'm worried about keeping my son safe and most importantly not being prepared
for such a disaster. Call me paranoid, but I'm going to go gather some supplies
right NOW! So if the big one does hit today, at least I won't be wearing dirty
God is so wonderful that uses geologists and experts to warn us. I lived in Salt
Lake for 10 years and I loved it, wonderful place, wonderful people! I want to
invite the Christian Community to join together and pray asking God for
guidance, protection and wisdom! We all know that this is the begining of the
end. Let's us keep our faith in God and trust Him.
i love earth i hope it doesn't end tomorrow!!!! Al
doom and gloom is forcasting merely the possible seasoned with a little
exageration. this is not an unlikely exageration. it's probable! if you're my
neighbor please take atleast the minimal precautions/prepardness because if
you're not able to care for your family because inability to reach them etc i'll
be able to help them --- will you beable to give the same to mine?
it is really awake up call
More media gloom and doom...if it happens in February 2008, then I'm certain
that global warming will save us.
More media doom and gloom.
this scares the crap out of me hope god gives us the power to go through this
SCARY!!! Way scary! Let's all move out fast. Lol.
VERY ENLIGHTENING!WE HAVE TAKEN SOME STEPS TO PREPARE, BUT I REALIZE I
NEED TO GET BUSY ON THE REST... THANKYOU
Interesting story....also very likely. People there should really prepare and
make plans for a huge quake. They need to do more than have a survival kit at
home. They need to make evacuation plans and choose another site to head for.
I am not sure if there are any warning signs, but if there is, people should
take advantage of them and stay somewhere else. You might not be religious, but
earthquakes in the end times are predicted to totally disrupt our earth's crust.
So people need to prepare psychologically and spiritually. You guys have my
Interesting story. I checked my water heater mid-read to make sure it was
secured. Where do I check on specific information for my area? (Lehi/Saragoga
Springs, north shore of Utah Lake, Loch Lomond neighborhood)
