Minneapolis and St. Paul are positioned where several rivers draining inland lakes, the headwaters of the Mississippi converge. All cities along major rivers will find themselves under several feet of water, washing strong and tearing away foundations such that buildings collapse and become battering rams further down stream. There are bluffs along such river banks, in particular the Mississippi or to the south toward the Iowa border, where survivors can scramble, and they should be there well ahead of the hour of the shift as rising water will create havoc with roadways and bridges. In that the vaste majority of city dwellers will not hear, nor heed, any warnings, they will be in all likelihood drown, reducing the population of Minnesota considerably during the hour of the shift.
UFO displays appeared over the skies of the twin cities of Minneapolis / St. Paul on August 9, 2010. Is some message being delivered? Note that the sightings are on the same latitude as Japan. We've made the statement that Japan will experience several 8+ magnitude quakes prior to the New Madrid adjustment on the N American continent. These Japanese quakes will allow the northern parts of the Pacific plates to shift, and this has repercussions on fault lines in the N American continent. Minneapolis is famous for the bridge snap on August 2, 2007 wherein one of the bridges crossing the Mississippi on I-35 pulled the the bridge where it was moored on the southeast side of the bridge 50 feet to the east when it snapped. Clearly the bridge snapped due to being in a torque twist, though this was not the official explanation. In sympathy with the large quakes in Japan, the slowly tearing St. Lawrence Seaway will likewise snap, once again bringing Minneapolis into the news.
