A Storm is Coming

A Storm is Coming, perhaps the last and worst storm of all
William Bell, (Leonard Nimoy) in the TV series Fringe as a

Whose fault is it?

We are watching earthquake activity in Hawaii as at least 1000 earthquakes happened accompanied by volcanic eruptions from Kilauea - the biggest expected momentarily. Very importantly is monitoring air-quality due to toxic fumes.

Let's segue to the mainland where fracking has caused thousands of earthquakes in Oklahoma, chipping away at the North American Plate. 4 earthquakes recorded near central Oklahoma town

Just east of Oklahoma we find Arkansas which is part of the New Madrid Fault Zone. A large earthquake there will be devastating to the US. This is another area of speculation as we prepare for, and anticipated a major shake-up.
