Bog note: 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). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one 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 pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

Hurricane “Olivia,” the 15th named storm of the 2018 Pacific hurricane season, is intensifying as it tracks toward Hawaii. Little change in strength is forecast through late Monday (HST), with gradual weakening possible starting sometime Tuesday, September 11. It is important to not focus on the exact forecast track and intensity when planning for Olivia, NHC said. Persons on all of the main Hawaiian Islands should continue preparing for the likelihood of direct impacts from this system Monday and early Tuesday, September 10 and 11. Those impacts could include intense flooding rainfall, damaging winds, large and dangerous surf, and storm surge.
At 09:00 UTC on Monday, September 10, the center of Hurricane “Olivia” was located about 880 km (545 miles) ENE of Hilo and 1 140 km (705 miles) E of Honolulu, Hawaii. Its maximum sustained winds were 140 km/h (85 mph), making it a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale.
The system is moving W at 15 km/h (9 mph) with minimum central pressure of 980 hPa.
This general motion is expected to continue through early Monday (HST), followed by a turn toward the WSW starting late Monday. This WSW motion is expected to continue through Tuesday evening. On this forecast track, tropical storm conditions are possible over some parts of Hawaii starting Tuesday.
