I was too busy writing an earthquake explanation/prediction at the time to notice the breaking news that the Caribbean was shaken by a magnitude 7.6 at 9:51 p.m. EST, following is the title and body of my post. I was engaged in a lengthy phone call from 10:55 p.m. EST and heard news of the quake on a TV while I was in that phone call. Again, here's what I wrote BEFORE hearing of the Honduras/Cayman Islands-region earthquake:
"Two Rare Earthquakes in VIETNAM commemorate two Vietnam Victories, and relate to the "BIG ONE" in California 161 years ago today."
France abandoned colonialism in Indochina when Ho Ch Minh's Communist "Vietminh" troops conquered the new French military base at Dien Bien Phu in far northwestern Vietnam on May 7, 1954. The next day talks began in Geneva which resulted in Vietnam being divided into a North and South Vietnam.
North and South Vietnam were forcibly reunited by the defeat of U.S. and South Vietnamese armed forces, Saigon fell April 30, 1975.
Vietnam invaded Khmer Rouge-held Cambodia December 25, 1978 and conquered its capital city Phnom Penh on January 7, 1979, the next day establishing The People's Republic of Cambodia.
On January 7, 2018 (USA time) at 3:14 p.m. EST an earthquake east of Dien Bien Phu:
(4:14 a.m. Jan. 8 in Vietnam)
And then a larger shock at 6:21 p.m. EST the next day, January 8.
(7:21 a.m. January 9 in Vietnam)
161 years ago (7 times 23) occurred the last "Big One" in California, the magnitude 7.9 Fort Tejon quake at 11:20 a.m. EST Friday January 9, 1857.
Half of 161 years ago, the second Sino-Japanese war began with an incident at the Marco Polo Bridge in China, late Friday July 7-8, 1937:
In some historians' view, that is really when World War II began, July 7-8, 1937.
Six months earlier, a powerful earthquake in Qinghai, central China at 8:20 a.m. EST Thursday January 7, 1937, magnitude 7.8--
One year before that, an American man named Maurice Glendenning claimed to have received a revelation from God which stated that wars and tribulations would befall nations so long as a prevailing opinion was that "those who serve the Lord are a fancy of the insane" and "he receives from Satan and so we will receive him not" (two attitudes frequently lodged against Old and New Testament prophets or disciples of God). The prophecy says "This is the day" divinely-permitted troubles would begin, and the prophecy is dated Wednesday January 8, 1936 A.D.
2520 years before then (7 times 360 or 36 times 70), on Tuesday January 8, 585 B.C. (Julian Calendar), Ezekiel recorded the famous Gog and Magog prophecy which includes the statement, "This is the day whereof I have spoken..."
Seventy years later a powerful earthquake offshore Greece shook as far away as Jordan and Israel, at 6:35 a.m. EST Sunday January 8, 2006:
Twenty-two times 260 days ago tonight at 12:00 midnight EST Monday May 13-14, 2002 a major earthquake south of San Francisco struck near San Juan Bautista.
1,268,020 days ago tonight at midnight (4877 times 260) was midnight Thursday night April 21-22, 1455 B.C. when a Destroying Angel passed through Egypt according to Jewish legend.
Eighty-three times 260 days ago a magnitude 4.7 earthquake shook San Francisco Bay Area at 1:52 a.m. PST December 11, 1958.
Six days ago happened the largest Berkeley California earthquake in that city's history, magnitude 4.4, it was felt by almost ten million people when it hit at 2:40 a.m. PST.
