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.
Typhoon “Mangkhut” over the Marianas, track takes it toward Philippines and Taiwan as a Super Typhoon
Posted by TW on September 10, 2018, Watchers.news
Typhoon “Mangkhut” is dropping heavy rain and producing wind gusts of up to 204 km/h (126 mph) across Northern Marianas and Guam on September 10. The storm is heading westward towards the northern Philippines and Taiwan and is forecast to reach a Super Typhoon strength before it enters Luzon Strait.
At 06:00 UTC on September 10, the center of Typhoon “Mangkhut” was located about 109 km (68 mph) northeast of Guam. The typhoon is tracking westward at 31 km/h (19 mph) with maximum sustained winds of 167 km/h (103 mph) and gusts to 204 km/h (126 mph), making it a Category 2 hurricane equivalent on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
Typhoon Mangkhut is less than 12 hours away from passing right over Guam and specifically Rota, plus the long range forecast brings the Philippines more in the picture of a land falling super typhoon by the end of the week.
The cyclone is tracking westward at a relatively fast pace and is forecast to further strengthen and reach Super Typhoon strength by 06:00 UTC, September 13 as it heads toward the northern Philippines and Taiwan.
The current forecast track takes Mangkhut on a west-northwestward track in the Philippine Sea and into the Luzon Strait after 06:00 UTC, September 14.
Favorable environmental conditions will prevail, bringing intensity to a peak of 250 km/h (155 mph) or higher by that time. After that, interaction with Taiwan and Luzon will weaken the system slightly down to 240 km/h (150 mph).
