Blog 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.
6 months’ worth of rain in 1 day, floodwaters rose 1.7 m (5.6 ft) as remnants of Medicane “Brian” hit Tunisia
Posted by TW on September 24, 2018. Watchers.news.
At least 4 people have been killed as remnants of the first medicane of the season – Brian – dropped heavy rain on Tunisia over the past couple of days, causing catastrophic flash flooding.
Severe thunderstorms first hit the country on September 19 but rains intensified towards the end of the week.
Some areas of the country, like the northeastern city of Nabeul, received as much as 200 mm (7.9 inches) of rain on Saturday, September 22, 2018, according to information provided by the National Institute of Meteorology. This is half the country’s annual precipitation, ministry spokesman Sofiene Zaag told AFP news agency on September 23. Up to 225 mm (8.85 inches) was measured in Beni Khalled.
This is the heaviest rainfall to hit the region in such a short period since 1995 when precise measurements began.
Floodwaters in Nabeul rose to more than 1.7 m (5.6 feet), damaging homes, bridges and roads, and cutting off power and telecommunication lines. The floods claimed lives of at least 4 people on Saturday, including two sisters swept away as they left the factory where they worked.
