Wild America

Remember the book of Revelation tells us that famine, pestilence and wild animals will kill millions of folks during The Tribulation.

Have you noticed more bear reports in the cities?  More wolves killing cattle?  More mauling by grizzly bears?  More deaths by shark attack?  More mountain lion sightings in major suburbs and even in cities?

Is nature getting ready for the great feast of human flesh that God has promised?

Those conflicts often pit neighbor against neighbor. After a small dog in Wheaton, Ill., was mauled by a coyote and had to be euthanized, officials hired a nuisance wildlife mitigation company. Its operator killed four coyotes and got voice-mail death threats. A brick was tossed through a city official's window, city-council members were peppered with threatening emails and letters, and the FBI was called in. After Princeton began culling deer 12 years ago, someone splattered the mayor's car with deer innards.

In just a few decades we have turned a wildlife comeback miracle into a mess that's getting messier, and costlier. How did this happen? The simple answer: Forests grew back over the past two centuries, wildlife came back over the past century and people sprawled across the landscape over the past half-century.

Some people advocate bringing back natural predators, as if they really want wolves and cougars roaming the sprawl. But they overlook a deer predator that is already there: us. Indeed, research suggests that since the last ice age the top predator of deer has been man. But by blanketing sprawl with firearms restrictions and hunting prohibitions in the name of safety we have taken ourselves out of the predation business in just a few decades. Suddenly, for the first time in 11,000 years, we have put hundreds of thousands of square miles in the heart of the white-tailed deer's historic range off-limits to its biggest predator.

Here; you REALLY want wolves, cougars and grizzly bears  roaming YOUR backyard looking for deer and turkeys to eat?  Or your dog?  Or your child or grandchild?

There was a reason our great grandparents got rid of the man killing predators in their backyards....and now they seem to be coming back in numbers that seem almost unstoppable.

Wolves Will Come Into the Flock

Of course we are all familiar with Catholic sex abuse stories and most Christians are certainly familiar with local clergy who have acted on perverse impulses.

I recently heard survey results that a large percentage of pastors admit to having viewed pornography online over the previous months.

Of course these are the people we trust the most....but Jesus warned us to be on guard, especially in the Last Days.

A Michigan pastor accused of beating and strangling his fiancee's daughter to fulfill a sexual fantasy had asked church members to pray for the young woman before police found her body, a friend said Friday.

Ex-convict John D. White knew the victim, Rebekah Gay, 24, and regularly watched her 3-year-old son while she worked, friend Donna Houghton said. White even told investigators that after killing Gay and dumping her body, he returned to her mobile home to dress the boy in a Halloween costume before taking the youngster to his father, authorities said.

White said he drank four or five beers before going to Gay's mobile home and repeatedly striking her head with a mallet and strangling her with a zip tie, according to a court filing. He said he stripped her but does not remember if he carried out his fantasy of having sex with Gay's dead body.

"He just basically said he was attracted to her, thought she was a very cute girl. It's a crazy, tragic situation," Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski told The Associated Press.

White confessed after investigators told him Gay's body was likely to deteriorate in the cold, wet weather, Mioduszewski said.

Houghton, who had a role in hiring White three years ago to be pastor at Christ Community Fellowship, a church with just 14 members, said she and others are "absolutely floored."
Talk about 'inventing evil'?  This case has to fit into that category.
You think Satan has to be involved in the desire to kill someone and have sex with her dead body?
Lord, help us.

Are you Transphobic?

Of course the debate is raging here in MN as we go to the polls next week and vote to add a marriage amendment to our constitution saying the marriage is between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.

And yes, it's sad that the poor bi-sexuals and trans-sexuals are being left out of the debate.  I mean what if you are bi-sexual and love one man and one woman and the three of you want to create a loving family? 

And what if you are a trans-sexual and maybe some days you feel like a woman and some days you feel like a man?  Shouldn't he be allowed to marry what ever he feels like for the days, weeks or months that he feels like it?

And finally, what about a man who is desperately in love with two or three women?  Certainly you can't suggest that he WASN'T created to love more than one woman at a time?

The world is going insane.  Perversion is exploding and if there is ANY perversion that you refuse to will be labled as biphobic, transphobic, zoophobic or polyphobic.

A Washington college said their non-discrimination policy prevents them from stopping a transgender man from exposing himself to young girls inside a women’s locker room, according to a group of concerned parents.

“Little girls should not be exposed to naked men, period,” said David Hacker, senior legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom. A group of concerned parents contacted the legal firm for help.

Hacker said a 45-year-old male student, who dresses as a woman and goes by the name Colleen Francis, undressed and exposed his genitals on several occasions inside the woman’s locker room at Evergreen State College.

Students from nearby Olympia High School as well as children at a local swimming club share locker rooms with the college.

According to a police report, the mother of a 17-year-old girl complained after her daughter saw the transgender individual walking naked in the locker room. A female swim coach confronted the man sprawled out in a sauna exposing himself. She ordered him to leave and called police.

The coach later apologized when she discovered the man was transgendered but explained there were girls using the facility as young as six years old who weren’t used to seeing male genitals.

“They’re uncomfortable with him being in there, her, being in there and are shocked by it,” parent Kristi Holterman told KIRO-TV.

According to the police report, the local district attorney probably will not pursue charges because he said the “criminal law is very vague in this area.”

Francis told KIRO-TV that he was born a man but chose to live as a woman in 2009. Francis said he felt discriminated against after he was told told leave.

“This is not 1959 Alabama,” Francis told the television station. “We don’t call police for drinking from the wrong water fountain.”


Please, please, please notice that the COACH APOLOGIZED after someone told her the man with the big testicles laid out on the girl's sauna bench...actually was feeling like a woman that day...and she should have known better than to ask him to leave the sauna.

All you six year old little girls just better get used to seeing naked men calling themselves Francis hanging out in the bathrooms with you.  It's the NEW NORMAL.  We are EVOLVING.

Greek Society in Free Fall

How long have we been watching Greece now?  3 years or more?

Of course we watch them because they once stood alone as the world's power.  In fact they are the waist of bronze as dreamed by Nebuchadnezzar and interpreted by Daniel in the book of Daniel.

We watch them because it is quite possible that what is happening to them is going to happening to the USA.

When we mention this to some we get a response, "That's not gonna happen here!  This is America!!"

Of course the "America!" crowd have no numbers or logic to explain WHY it can't happen here.  Long time readers will already know that the U.S. per capita debt EXCEEDS the per capita debt of it CERTAINLY could happen here.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — A sign taped to a wall in an Athens hospital appealed for civility from patients. "The doctors on duty have been unpaid since May," it read, "Please respect their work."
Patients and their relatives glanced up briefly and moved on, hardened to such messages of gloom. In a country where about 1,000 people lose their jobs each day, legions more are still employed but haven't seen a paycheck in months. What used to be an anomaly has become commonplace, and those who have jobs that pay on time consider themselves the exception to the rule.

To the casual observer, all might appear well in Athens. Traffic still hums by, restaurants and bars are open, people sip iced coffees at sunny sidewalk cafes. But scratch the surface and you find a society in free-fall, ripped apart by the most vicious financial crisis the country has seen in half a century.

"Our society is on a razor's edge," Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias said recently, after striking shipyard workers broke into the grounds of the Defense Ministry. "If we can't contain ourselves, if we can't maintain our social cohesion, if we can't continue to act within the rules ... I fear we will end up being a jungle."

"I start work at 2:30 a.m. and work 'till the afternoon, until about 4 p.m. Shouldn't I have something to show for that? There's no point in working just to cover my costs. ... Tell me, is this a life?"

At the end of the day, as the fish market gradually packed up, a beggar crawled around the stalls, picking up the fish discarded onto the floor and into the gutters.

"I've been here since 1968. My father, my grandfather ran this business," Korakis said. "We've never seen things so bad."


I'm sure in their wildest dreams the Greeks could have never envisioned themseleves crawling aroud at the fish market looking for scraps...after all, THEY ONCE RULED THE WORLD!!

Never Seen It Happen

Last night on David Letterman, he was interviewing the bald guy from The Weather Channel.  His name was Jim something.

So Jim starts talking about the hurricane and says that he has covered over 90 hurricanes and studied hundreds more.  He then describes how Sandy came up the East Coast and took a hard left, going straight west, after it lined up with Manhattan and the Jersey Shore.

He went on to say that he, or anyone else at the Weather Channel, has EVER seen a hurricane take a hard left and head straight west.  It's simply unheard simply NEVER happens!

So of course he goes onto talk about how the moon, the tide, the pressure, the storm, the cold front, etc....all came together to create a 'perfect storm'....a once every 500 or 1000 year event.

I switched from there and came across a weather update for the upper mid-west just in time to hear a dude say that parts of  the storm had moved over Lake Michigan and had created 22 foot waves....the biggest waves EVER recorded on Lake Michigan.

He then went on to talk about the 2+ feet of snow dropped on places that almost never see 2 feet of snow in the dead of winter....forget about the fact that it's the end of October.

It would sure seem that God is trying to get our attention.

I wonder if He ever will?

Did We Just Buy Some Time With Iran?

As of late, good news has been rather hard to come when we see a piece of it we will try and grab onto it.

Of course we have all been wondering when the fighter jets are going to take off from Israel and pummel Iran...which could lead to a whole host of other unintended consequences.

According to Rosenberg, that day may have been pushed back by months.

(Washington, D.C., October 31, 2012) -- In a startling and very positive new twist to the intense drama unfolding in the Middle East, the prospect for an all-out Israeli-Iranian war now appears to have been pushed back by eight to ten months.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak was interviewed by a British newspaper this week. Barak indicated that while events could change yet again, it would now appear that the likelihood of a major war with Iran before next fall has been significantly reduced.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently in France. He told the Paris-Match that an Israeli first strike on Iran would be welcomed by the Arab world, which fears the Persians getting the Bomb. Still, he, too, is telling French President Francois Hollande and senior officials in Paris that war isn't imminent and is asking them to press forward with even tougher economic sanctions on Iran.

This is a welcome relief and a huge answer to prayer. With the prospect of war seeming imminent just a few weeks ago -- for reasons I explain in the new ebook, "Israel At War: Inside The Nuclear Showdown With Iran" -- Christians all over the world have been praying for peace, according to Psalm 122:6, which commands believers to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem."

Iran's decision to step back from the brink of building the Bomb has, for now, relieved tensions with the Obama administration. It has enabled Netanyahu to feel comfortable to call for new Israeli national elections in February. It is encouraging Jewish and Christian tourists to continue visiting Israel. Indeed, The Joshua Fund tour of Israel and 2013 Epicenter Conference remains on track for next June. Please visit and sign up to join us. We would be honored to have you with us.

What I find intriguing is that Barak indicates that war was increasingly likely this fall. The Israelis were preparing to hit Iran before the U.S. elections. But by the grace of God, something happened in Iran that unexpectedly changed the dynamic.

Wow!  I'm guessing with the East Coast currently laid waste by Sandy, a fiscal cliff coming for America, and a huge election coming next will be VERY nice if a full scale war between Israel and Iran DIDN'T break out this week.

As I watched the video of the destruction wreaked on Jersey Shore, Manhattan and Queens, I thought it interesting that we ran across this verse in Amos 3:6-7 on Monday night at Bible study;  "When a trumpet sounds in the city, do not the people tremble?  When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?  Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plans to his servants the prophets."

How Far Have We Already Fallen?

Dennis Prager is one of the smartest men in the country.  Of course that is my opinion.  If you have never heard him on the radio or read any of his books, I would highly recommend that you do both.

Today we find Prager arguing that good people can be on both sides of the gay-marriage debate and he breaks down how this could be.

Of course the liberals HATE him because they don't like his debate style which is 100% logical.  The liberals would much rather use their FEELINGS when arguing.  That's why typically when you get into a fight with a liberal they will start with, "Well how would you feel if such and such happened to you!?!"

If you need some ammo and talking points for standing up for traditional marriage, then read Prager's aritcle here;

Also remember when debating with a liberal who doesn't accept the Bible you simply can't yell "Cuz the Bible says so!" you storm away.  There are plenty of logical reasons for being a Conservative.

Anyway, if you read Pragers article, on page 2 he has a list of how far we have fallen in America in the war for gender.  There is a movement that wants to take gender out of everything and just have everyone labeled as it would become people marrying people and the argument about marriage being between a man and woman would simply vanish.

Some examples of this war on gender:

This year Harvard University appointed its first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life. The individual, Vanidy Bailey, has asked that he/she never be referred to as he or she, male or female. Harvard has agreed.

In 2010 eHarmony, for years the country’s largest online dating service, was sued for only matching men and women. Its lack of same-sex matchmaking meant that it violated anti-discrimination laws in some states. As a result, eHarmony was forced to begin a same-sex online service.

Each year more and more American high schools elect girls as homecoming kings and boys as homecoming queens. Students have been taught to regard restricting kings to males or queens to females as (gender-based) discrimination.

When you sign up for the new social-networking site, Google Plus, you are asked to identify your gender. Three choices are offered: Male, Female, Other.

Catholic Charities, which operates the oldest ongoing adoption services in America, has had to end its adoption work in Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C., because the governments there regard placing children with married man-woman couples before same-sex couples as discriminatory.

Increasingly, even the mother-father ideal is being shattered in this battle to render the male-female distinction insignificant.

The socialist French government has just announced that in the future no government-issued document will be allowed to use the words “mother” or “father.” Only the gender-neutral term “parent” will be acceptable in France.

And in Rhode Island this year, one school district cancelled its father-daughter dance after the ACLU threatened to sue the district for gender discrimination. Only parent-child events, not father-daughter dances or mother-son ballgames, will be allowed.

And all this is happening before same-sex marriage is allowed. Imagine what will happen should same-sex marriage become the law of the land.

Lord help us!  We are so lost!!!

Europe's Trouble With the Jews

Remember friends, the Jews are the ONLY people group that are persecuted no matter where they go on earth.

Also remember that the higher the incidence of Islam in an area...the greater the chances are that anti-Semitism will rise.

LAST week, Twitter shut down a popular account for posting anti-Semitic messages in France. This came soon after the firing of blanks at a synagogue near Paris, the discovery of a network of radical Islamists who had thrown a hand grenade into a kosher restaurant, and the killing of a teacher and young pupils at a Jewish school in Toulouse earlier this year. The attacks were part of an escalating campaign of violence against Jews in France.

Today, a sizable section of the European left has been reluctant to take a clear stand when anti-Zionism spills over into anti-Semitism. Beginning in the 1990s, many on the European left began to view the growing Muslim minorities in their countries as a new proletariat and the Palestinian cause as a recruiting mechanism. The issue of Palestine was particularly seductive for the children of immigrants, marooned between identities.

Sometimes the left distinguishes between vulnerable European Jews who have been persecuted and latter-day “Prussians” in Israel. Yet it is often forgotten that a majority of Israelis just happen to be Jews, who fear therefore that what begins with the delegitimization of the state will end with the delegitimization of the people.

Such Israelophobia, enunciated by sections of the European left, dovetailed neatly with the rise of Islamism among Palestinians and throughout the Arab world. The Islamist obfuscation of “the Jew” mirrored the blindness of many a European Marxist. Despite the well-intentioned efforts of many Jews and Muslims to put aside their differing perspectives on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the offensive imagery of “the Jew” has persisted in many immigrant communities in Western Europe. Islamists were willing to share platforms with socialists and atheists, but not with Zionists.
The New Left’s profound opposition to American power, and the convergence of reactionary Islamists and unquestioning leftists was reflected in the million-strong London protest against the invasion of Iraq in 2003. It was organized by the Muslim Association of Britain, the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party and the Stalinist Communist Party of Britain. When some Muslims voiced apprehension about participating in the protest with non-Muslims, the M.A.B. leadership decreed that it was religiously permissible if halal food was provided and men and women were given separate areas. Such displays of “reactionary clericalism,” as the early Bolsheviks would have called it, were happily glossed over.
We need to continue praying fervently for our Jewish neighbors and Israel.  There is another holocaust coming before the Great Tribulation is over and this time 2/3 of the world's Jews will be involved. 
The harvest is at hand and it is God's desire that NONE should persish but that all would come to Him. 
If you know a Jew maybe you should start praying for him or her that the Lord would soften his heart and take off the blinders so that they will be open to hear the story about Jesus the Messiah and pray that YOU are the one to deliver those words.
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God", said Jesus.  These are the folks who bring the Gospel message to other humans and give them the opportunity to have peace with God through the atoning work of Christ on the cross. 
Of course, lest anyone should boast...we ONLY bring the words and scatter the seeds.  It's the Holy Spirit who accomplishes salvation.


I recieved a text message from a college kid this morning who attends a Christian college in the Midwest.  She asked me about the mayhem out East. She has connected the dots about the earthquake, blizzard, power outage, and superstorm that have all hit that same area around our nation's capital over the past year.  She believes it is God trying to get our attention...and we better listen up.

She went on to say how 'sound asleep' all the college kids around her were to the events transpiring all over the world that point to the coming Tribulation and return of Christ.

Of course it is sad, but not surprising.  MOST CHURCHES in America are sound asleep while the LARGEST outbreak of the Holy Spirit EVER is happening in countries all over the the American church falls deeper into sleep.

So I turned on my computer and opened this email from Pastor Laurie today that spoke to that exact conversation.



"So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded."

Have you ever gone sleepwalking? It is kind of scary, really—especially the next day when someone tells you what you did.

There are people in the church today who have gone to sleep. They are not watching the signs of the times. There is a lethargy, a passiveness—even a laziness—in some Christians. There is an apparent disconnect between their so-called spiritual lives and real lives. Instead of walking in the Spirit, some believers are sleepwalking.

We need to wake up. The Bible says, "So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded" (1 Thessalonians 5:6).

In other words, we need to wake up to the urgency of the time. We need to wake up to the imminence of the Lord's return.

We also need to sober up. 1 Thessalonians 5 goes on to say, "Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation" (verses 7–8).

I think we can interpret this both literally and figuratively. An obvious interpretation is, don't get drunk. Don't be under the influence of anyone or anything except Jesus Christ.

But figuratively speaking, we can be intoxicated with other things. Jesus said, "Watch out! Don't let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware" (Luke 21:34). What you will eat or wear or where you will live are normal human concerns as you provide for yourself and your family. But let's not allow these things to become our preoccupation. Let's not allow ourselves to become intoxicated with things that are not the main thing.

Quakes in Arkansas

While Hurricane Sandy is pummeling the East coast, some quakes are rattling the most dangerous fault in North Arkansas.

For long time readers you will remember that the New Madrid fault that runs through Arkansas and Missouri produced some of the most massive quakes in history exactly 200 yrs ago.

Not to double down on the doom and gloom or suggest the Americas are slated to descend into Mad Max-style chaos and anarchy, but the latest in a recent flurry of North American earthquakes just rumbled across one of the most dangerous earthquake zones in the United States.

That’s right, even as Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest storms in history, threatens to morph into a hybrid superstorm once it strikes the East Coast, the planet has let the middle of the country know it hasn’t forgotten them with a 3.9 magnitude earthquake.

Residents of western North Carolina felt a smaller 2.9 magnitude quake about 40 minutes before the Arkansas temblor.

Residents of more quake-prone regions may laugh at alarmed responses to relatively small events in the South and Midwest. However, the Arkansas quake took place in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, which isn’t as noisy as other seismic zones, but some geologists consider it the most dangerous earthquake producer in the U.S. since it produced two of the largest quakes in recorded history 200 years ago.


Now imagine if an 8.0 rocked Kansas City some time soon and knocked out power, natural gas and bridges for weeks or months.  Think Walmart would be empty in a hurry in the town near you?

Even then....would Americans wake up and realize that all these disasters are NOT a coincidence?

Man Accused of Sex With Goat

A few weeks ago we got into a debate with a liberal who said that we needed to be more tolerant of homosexual behavior...and accused us of being intolerant.

When I pushed him back and asked him if he was tolerant of polygamy so that a bi-sexual could at least marry one man AND one woman...he said that he would be very tolerant of that.

When I pushed him further and asked if he was tolerant of folks who enjoyed copulating with animals he responded with, "That doesn't happen."  I told him it sure the heck does and forwarded him numerous articles of recent arrests.

He said that sex with animals is disgusting.  I then told him that he was intolerant of these poor folks who were BORN with the desire to copulate with animals.

And so yes, he had to admit that he was, in fact, intolerant of those people.

He's a ZOO-PHOBE!!  He is ZOOPHOBIC!!  He is a HATER!!

Sadly, another article came across my computer right here in MN that maybe gives us more evidence that perversion of this nature is increasing.

GRANT, Minn. - Authorities are on the lookout for a man accused of having sex with a goat. 37-year-old Abimael Rojas Dominguez has been charged with burglary and animal cruelty.

Washington County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call on August 2 about a dead goat and possible sodomy at a farm in Grant. Deputies collected the dead goat and a condom at the scene for forensic testing.

Investigators took a cheek swab from Dominguez. According to the complaint, Dominguez's DNA matched the seminal fluid collected from the goat. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension's report says "the probability of selecting an unrelated individual at random from the general population having a DNA profile that would match this partial DNA profile is approximately 1 in 110,500."

Dominguez is not in custody and his whereabouts are not known.


Holy goat lover!!...this dude is still on the loose!  I better get home and round up my farm dogs!!

Life Threatening Storm Surge

The folks on TV news are running out of adjectives to describe what they are seeing coming ashore out East.

It has the capacity to be the biggest storm EVER to hit the East Coast.  They already are recording the lowest barometric pressure EVER.  They are saying that from West Virginia into parts of Pennsylvania could get 2 feet of snow along with 70 mph winds would would make it the worst winter storm EVER...and it's still October!!

One reporter said that if the storm surge comes on shore in NYC as high as expected that it could take a whole stretch of land from Fire Island to the Hampton's and wash it out to sea...just making some of the most expensive real estate in America VANISH FOREVER!  Another report said if the NYC subway system fills with salt could be wrecked FOREVER!!

Wow!  I just gotta wonder what the heck we did to Israel this time? 

Or maybe by wiping out the financial district of America God is sending us a warning that we should quit worshiping Mammon?  Or maybe He's upset about the 57,000,000 babies we ripped out of their mother's womb?  Or maybe he is upset because the average age of first exposure to hard-core porn has just dropped to 8 yrs old....and this nation has done NOTHING to stop that perverse damage.

"This one has got so many facets to it -- you’ve got wind, you’ve got rain, you’ve got snow, you’ve got the full moon, you’ve got the storm surge,” said Doug Spiron, who is running home-improvement retailer Home Depot Inc. (HD)’s emergency response operations involving 350 employees in Atlanta. “Then there’s the impact of the sheer size of the storm. This one takes it to another whole level of preparation.”


Sandy may cut into sales of clothing and accessories as the holiday shopping season nears, according to Oliver Chen, an analyst at Citigroup Inc. in New York. The storm may reduce November same-store sales by as much as 3 percent as traffic may fall 40 percent in storm-affected areas in November’s first week, which accounts for about 22 percent of the month’s sales, Chen said today in a note.

The storm may help discount and home-improvement stores such as Home Depot as consumers stock up on supplies, while reducing purchases at specialty-apparel chains, Chen said. American Eagle Outfitters Inc., Limited Brands Inc. and Urban Outfitters Inc. are among the companies with the highest percentages of their stores affected by the storm, he said.

“The storm will disrupt last-minute Halloween sales and mall traffic but drive up stock-up trips to the discounters,” Deborah Weinswig, a Citigroup analyst, said in an e-mail today. As such, she expects Sandy’s impact to be “mixed.”


Holy relief!!  Halloween sales might be put off by the storm...but all the people buying storm supplies should make up for it!!

I wonder how many people in America spent more time this year shopping for Halloween candy than they did reading the Holy Bible?

7.7 Quake Calls for Tsunami Warning in Alaska

There have been quite a few earthquakes in the last week. We seldom post about them any more due to the frequency.  I figure most of you are already watching for that particular sign all on your own.

However, sounds like a big one hit today.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is warning people in far southern Alaska to take precautions after a tsunami warning was issued for coastal areas of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

The warning was sparked by a strong earthquake Saturday night that shook off the west coast of Canada.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the 7.7-magnitude earthquake hit in the Queen Charlotte Islands area, followed by a 5.8-magnitude aftershock several minutes later.
