New Zealand Earthquake 2011, When people were celebrating the end of the May 21 Judgement Day no, an earthquake of magnitude 4.9 occurred about 1.305 km away from New Zealand. Does Harold Camping May 21 is the day of reckoning for real? The earthquake of magnitude 4.9, at a depth of 523 km, recorded 1305 km NNE of Auckland, New Zealand in the south of the Fiji Islands on May 21, 2011 at 6:31:52 PM, local time, according to Service U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
From the date of this earthquake of magnitude 4.9 occurred, are not completely 11 earthquake happened in the world, but all are under 6 earthquake magnitude.
In fact, there is shooting in New Zealand earthquake, though the whole world. Camping ‘end of the world’ Doomsday May 21 has almost been ruled out.
According to Camping, May 21 is the date on which 200 million believers of God will be caught up in the air, and rolling an earthquake will occur. Five months later, on October 21, 2011, the world and unbelievers will be destroyed.
Camping can be said that he made a mathematical error, as it did in 1994. However, many Christian leaders have warned that it is wrong.
Harold Camping, 89, the California evangelical station predicts the day of reckoning will arrive on May 21, 2011, is seen reading the Bible in his office at Family Stations Inc. offices in Oakland, California in this image video fixed May 16, 2011.
On Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 6:31:52 UTC South of the Fiji Islands, 810 miles from New Zealand, an earthquake of magnitude 4.9 was recorded, fueling rumors that the prediction of Harold Camping Day Judgement may be true.
As the prediction was false alarm Camping and New Zealand have had no earthquake, even after 6 pm, U.S. Geological Survey earthquakes recorded, although to a lesser extent, in 12 different locations.
Geologists do not necessarily feel this points towards the end of the world predictions, and should not be considered to add to the May 21 doomsday or clutter the day of trial. However, recognize that earthquakes are increasing.
“Although it may seem that we are having more earthquakes, earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have remained fairly constant,” the USGS said on its official website.
The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur worldwide each year. Many go unnoticed because they reach remote areas or have very small magnitudes.
According to the National Earthquake Information (NEIC), about 50 earthquakes per day, or 20,000 a year, is recorded by seismographs.
