Blog note. Jesus indicated
that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the
time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year
period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have
occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be
identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these
events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency,
size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor
the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the
times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.
Eruption of underwater volcano near Mayotte continues, may badly affect Lake Dziani on Petite Terre. 500 (5) quakes, averaging 36 (6×6) per day. Over 2,500 (5×5) feet high, 2.5 (5×5) miles wide.

Eruption at a developing submarine volcano east of Mayotte continues and may contaminate Petite Terre’s Lake Dziani. The underwater volcano is the reason behind the seismo-volcanic crisis affecting the small island in the Indian Ocean since May 2018. The crisis started with earthquake swarm that continued for months causing anxiety among locals until May 2019 when a new developing volcano was confirmed.
An underwater eruption is officially underway as of July 31, 50 – 60 km (31 – 37 miles) east of Mayotte.
The seismic activity is centered at 5 to 15 km (3 to 9 miles) from Petite Terre at depths of 25 to 47 km (16 to 29 miles). It remains stationary with a high number of quakes.
Over 500 were recorded so far from October 16, 2019, to October 31. The average seismic activity is approximately 36 per day, with the recording of a clear recrudescence of seismic energy released.
Since the start of the crisis, GPS stations recorded a displacement towards the east part of the island of 190 to 210 mm (7 to 8 inches), and subsidence of 80 to 160 mm (3 to 6 inches), more to the east than to the west.
The volcano is located 50 km (31 miles) east of the Petite-Terre island at a depth of 3 500 m (11 482 feet), BGRM, the France-based geological agency serving the territory said.
The current size of the volcano is estimated at 800 m (2 624 feet), with a base of 4 to 5 km (2.5 – 3.1 miles) in diameter.
The gas emanations reported along the Petite-Terre coastline are a common sign encountered in this type of volcanic activity and are the subject of specific studies.
The new volcano might affect the maar Lake Dziani on Petite Terre as the impact due to subsidence may cause cracks and infiltration of waters of the lagoon, altering its unique composition. This might lead to the lake eventually vanishing.
The lake is known for its green, almost fluorescent waters because of Spirulina– a biomass of cyanobacteria.
The crisis began with a rare earthquake swarm on May 10, 2018. The tremors were initially believed to be the result of a seismic hot spot as well as the island’s position along the East African Rift.
The seismic activity remained abnormal and persisted for months, leaving locals in fear. There were no serious injuries or fatalities, but in June 2018, locals reported minor damage to buildings, including a school in Dembeni.
In January 2019, the Mayotte seismo-volcanic crisis intensified as a large number of dead fish emerged at various sites off of the barrier reef, and the earthquake swarm was believed to be one of the possible causes.
Authorities then launched several major observation missions by late February 2019, with results expected within 6 months. The missions are coordinated by CNRS with the support of BRGM, IPGP, IGN, Ifremer and the Environment Ministry of France.
Attempts to understand the reason behind the intense volcano-seismic crisis affecting Mayotte finally resulted in a solid answer around May 2019, when the submarine volcano was discovered.
