7.5 quake: New Zealand

Update: Strange Lights seen during Quake

Live coverage from New Zealand

Note: the tsunami warning has now been cancelled, although large waves did threaten after the quake.
  • A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck near Christchurch in New Zealand around midnight on Sunday
  • The NZ Government said the earthquake was felt throughout the country and aftershocks followed 
  • A two-metre high tsunami hit the east coast of South Island, people told to head for higher ground 
  • The touring Pakistan cricket team were in the middle of prayers and forced to evacuate their hotel in Nelson 
  • String of casualties including at least one death from quake-related heart attack in North Christchurch     
More at Daily Mail and I will update when more information is known.

HT Dov Bar Leib [see comments below]  - Several hours prior to the earthquake, John Kerry (who had visited the South Pole on Election Day) was in New Zealand to ready them for a late December vote on establishing Paleostine and dividing Jerusalem. And NZ agreed to sponsor the resolution.  

If you take a look at the map, Culverden in New Zealand [the epicentre of the quake] is even in the same position as Jerusalem on the Israel map.

the moon was very large last night, supermoon indeed. Tomorrow night in Australia, I believe the moon will be even more intense and there are beach ''supermoon'' gatherings scheduled.

Considering the moon's pull on the ocean, maybe it isn't such a great idea to hang out on the beach to observe a super moon? You never know..

There was also an earthquake in argentina: "6.2-magnitude quake shakes northwestern Argentina AFP"

BTW on Friday night, Shabbat, the moon was a bit larger and very shiny bright orange here in Yerushalayim. It wasn't the night of the Blood Moon but nevertheless . . . (at least from my vantage)

Emunah: Hopefully that won't happen here: ''Astronomy enthusiasts have organised events throughout the city to watch the rare event, including one in Bronte Beach where 35,000 social media users have pledged their attendance.''
I'll wait for the best photos to appear on the net and publish some here.

The Washington Post did us all a service. They mention the Ba'al Kerry's visit to XChurch to discuss establishing Paleostine and the earthquake almost in the same breath.

Accidentally deleted, but this comment is from DOV BAR LEIB

Well we missed the real reason for the earthquake. Seems that we are about to enter the last 9 months of Olam HaZeh. So nations are being instantaneously judged about the most important of issues, the division of Yerushalayim which is the main reason that Olam HaZeh is basically decimated.

You see just several hours prior to the earthquake, the Ba'al Kerry (who had visited the South Pole on Election Day) was in New Zealand to ready New Zealand for a late December vote on establishing Paleostine. And NZ agreed to sponsor the resolution! New Zealand with Zeal wants to sponsor a resolution establishing Paleostine in the UNSC during Obamawama's ten weeks of his Lame Duck Presidency

We all were wondering why Keri was at Antarctica? Still not devulged. But a hop skip and jump to NZ and we find out what nefarious deeds he's up to. But why Antarctica? Dov, can you find out?

Dov Bar-Leib said...

There are bunkers underneath the permafrost in Antarctica to survive either a nuclear winter or ..... a downpour of meteoric stones from your friend and everyone's friend...... Nibiru. That is the ongoing theory about why he went there to check out these bunkers for the power elites. He did it when he thought that no one would be paying attention because it was Election Day in the US. What the Ba'al Kerry does not realize is that when the nations of the world come up to divide Yerushalayim during Tevet, nine months later on Hoshana Rabbah the wicked are supposed to be removed from the earth with fiery hail and meteoric stones on Hoshana Rabbah. In a sense, therefore, both his visit to Antarctica to check out those bunkers and his visit to New Zealand to discuss the establishment of Paleostine in the UNSC during Tevet are intrinsically at their essence related. Establishing Paleostine during Tevet will lead directly to hiding in those bunkers during the coming Tishrei, nine months later.

Devorah said...

Wow. It's all coming together.... check out the photos I just added to the blog post of the position of the NZ quakes vs the position of Yerushalayim. A picture paints a thousand words.

News reports that aftershocks are rattling the country every few minutes and there is MAJOR damage to roads. Another big quake is expected tonight. New Zealanders are very scared right now. And whilst we may find reasons for this quake, we do not enjoy seeing humans suffering and our thoughts are with the New Zealand people.

Dov Bar-Leib said...

My heart is with the people of New Zealand who do NOT desire that their government 1. sponsor a resolution in The UNSC dividing Yerushalayim and Eretz Yisrael in general and who do NOT 2. desire to ban kosher shechitah. Both of these movements cause tsa'ar to the most righteous of Jews everywhere. My heart is NOT with those who desire to divide our Holy City and who desire to ban kosher shechitah.

The same applies to Jews in America who voted for Obama a second time in 2012 and for Hillary or Jill Stein this year. You all need to go door to door apologizing profusely to the righteous everywhere.

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has estimated the damage could amount to billions of dollars.

Yasher Koach, Dov Bar Leib!

Good analysis and modelling on here, but I want to throw in that we have always been redeemed from extinction events on 15th Nissan Leil Seder, Yetziyas Mitzrayim, From Sancheriv, Purim, even Avraham Avinu with the 4 Kings.

Given the election of Donald Trump and his son-in-law and daughter Jared and Ivanka Kushner, even at this early stage Rachmanut has been built into the Din of this process. I have no doubt that by Pesach we will see miracles.

After being rocked by a deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake, a wave of powerful aftershocks, thousands are now stranded in a New Zealand town near the quake's epicenter.

A local state of emergency has been declared for the region of Canterbury, which is home to the areas hardest hit by the quake.

Helicopters are being sent to airlift trapped tourists and locals from cut-off communities in the Hurunui and Kaikoura districts, according to the New Zealand Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management.

A pair of ships, the HMNZS Canterbury and HMNZS Wellington, have also been sent to waters off the coast of Canterbury to assist.

Monday's earthquake lifted seabed around Kaikoura 'by at least a metre',

Moriah said...

Hashem definitely divided the land in NZ. You can see from photos that highways were cut off and places are impossible to get to. literally divided. Mida kneged mida..

New Zealand's earthquake was so powerful the sea floor lifted TWO METRES and exploded through the sand - creating an alien landscape that has left marine experts baffled
