From Reading #311-8 (Given on April 9, 1932)

Question:"How soon will the changes in the earth's activity begin to be apparent?"
EC: "When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea (that's South Pacific, to be sure), and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area, then we may know it has begun."

Question: "How long before this will begin?"
EC: " The indications are that some of these have already begun, yet others would say thse are only temporary. We would say they have begun..."

Question: "Will there be any physical changes in the earth's surface in North America? if so, what sections will be affected, and how?"
EC: "All over the country we will find many physical changes of a minor or greater degree. The greater change, as we find, in America, will be the North Atlantic Seaboard. Watch New York! Connecticut, and the like."

Question: "When will this be?"
EC: "In this period. As to just when..."

From Reading #3976-15 (Given on January 19, 1934)

"As to the changes physical again: The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanos in the Torrid areas, and there will be shifting then of the poles - so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow. And these will begin in those periods in '58 to '98, when these will be proclaimed as the periods when His light will be seen again in the clouds. As to times, as to seasons, as to places, ALONE is it given to those who have named the name - and who bear the mark of those of His calling and His election in their bodies. To them it shall be given."

Question: "What are the world changes to come this year (1934) physically?"
EC: "The earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will be open waters appear in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and DRY land will appear. There will be the falling away in India of much of the material suffering that has been brought on a troubled people. There will be the reduction of one risen to power in central Europe to naught. The young king son will soon reign. In America in the political forces we see a re-stabilization of the powers of the peoples in their own hands, a breaking up of the rings, the cliques in many places. South America shall be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off of Tierra Del Fuego LAND, and a strait with rushing waters."

Question: "To what country is the reference made regarding the young king?"
EC: "In Germany."

From reading 270-35 (given on January 21, 1936):

"If there are the greater activities in the Vesuvius, or Pelee, then the southern coast of California--and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada--may expect, within the three months following same, an inundation by the earthquakes.

"But these, as we find, are to be more in the southern than in the northern hemisphere."

From Reading #1152-11 (Given on August 13, 1941)

"As to conditions in the geography of the world, of the country, - changes here are gradually coming about."

"No wonder, then, that the entity feels the need, the necessity for change of central location. For, many portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the U.S."

"In the next few years lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many of the battle fields of the present will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which the NEW order will carry on their trade as one with another."

"Portions of the now east coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia - these will disappear. This will be much sooner."

"The waters of the lakes will empty into the Gulf, rather than the waterway over which such discussions have been recently made. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered."

"Then the area where the entity is now located [Virginia Beach] will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada; while the western land - much of that is to be disturbed - in this land - as, of course, much in other lands."

Question: "I have for many months felt that I should move away from New York City."
EC: "This is well, as indicated. There is too much unrest; there will continue to be the character of vibrations that to the body will be disturbing, and eventually those destructive forces there - though these will be in the next generation."

Question: "Will Los Angeles be safe?"
EC: "Los Angeles, San Francisco, most all of these will be among those that will be destroyed before New York even."

Question: "Should California or Virginia Beach be considered at all, or where is the right place that God has already provided for me to live?"
EC: "As indicated, these choices should be made rather in self. Virginia Beach or the area is much safer as a definite place."

Question: "Is Virginia Beach to be safe?"
EC: "It is the center - and the only seaport and center - of the White Brotherhood.
