Hurricane Update

 Typhoon “Yutu” approaching the Marianas, very strong winds and heavy rain expected

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.

Tropical Cyclone “Yutu” formed October 21, 2018 in the Northwest Pacific Ocean as 26th named storm of the 2018 Pacific typhoon season. The storm will move over the Mariana Islands sometime after noon UTC, October 24 as a Category 4 hurricane equivalent.

The National Weather Service in Guam has posted a typhoon warning for Rota, Tinian and Saipan and a tropical storm warning for Guam, and the far northern islands of Alamagan, Pagan, and Agrihan.​ At 18:00 UTC on October 23, the center of Typhoon “Yutu” was located about 530 km (329 miles) east-southeast of Rota, Northern Mariana Islands. Its maximum 10-minute sustained winds were 155 km/h (100 mph), 1-minute sustained winds were at 165 km/h (105 mph), with gusts to 220 km/h (140 mph).

The minimum central barometric pressure was 950 hPa and the system was moving northwestward at 20 km/h (10 mph). On the forecast track, the center of Yutu will move over the Mariana Islands after 12:00 UTC, October 24. Maximum sustained winds at the time should be around 215 km/h (132 mph). This would make it a Category 4 hurricane equivalent on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Strengthening is expected to continue over the next 72 hours and the typhoon is forecast to peak around 12:00 UTC, October 26 with maximum sustained winds of 270 km/h (165 mph).
