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.
WEATHER WARNING: 2018 hurricane season to be MORE ACTIVE than devastating 2017
HURRICANE season is set to be even more devastating this year following a catastrophic hurricane season in 2017 as researchers warn major hurricanes could strike the east coast of the UK and hit the Caribbean.

According to research from Colorado State University university, there is a 63 percent chance that a major hurricane – category three or higher – will hit the east coast of the US this year and a 52 percent chance that they will make landfall on the Caribbean.
The team say that is due to a lack of La Nina, where sea temperatures in the Pacific Ocean drops, this year which will allow the water to remain warm and prove a successful breeding ground for storms and hurricanes. A statement from Colorado State University read: “We anticipate a slightly above-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the continental United States coastline and in the Caribbean. “As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them. “They should prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.”
2017 saw 10 hurricanes with Harvey, Irma and Maria killing more than 350 people and causing hundreds of billions of pounds worth of damage to infrastructure to the United States and the Caribbean. Hurricane season is set to start again within the next two months, and researchers have warned this season could be even more powerful.
The hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid creating ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. Researchers believe that there could be up to 18 named storms in 2017 – there were 17 in 2017. Scientists give hurricane names so they can track them throughout the year. They are listed alphabetically and alternate between male and female names.
