Any minute now

Science might be confirming End of Day events...

Around 1500 years ago, a massive earthquake devastated the coast of Phoenicia, now Lebanon. The disaster is well-documented, but scientists had struggled over the years to locate the earthquake fault. Now a new underwater survey has uncovered the fault and shown that it moves approximately every 1,500 years — which means a disaster is due any day now. "It is just a matter of time before a destructive tsunami hits this region again." Earthquakes are common in Lebanon, but many of the faults remain unidentified, hidden beneath the deep waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
