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.
Severe flash floods in Krasnodar region, southern Russia
Posted by TW on October 26, 2018. Watchers.news
At least 6 people have been killed and several injured after severe flash floods hit Krasnodar region of southern Russia on October 24 and 25, 2018. The regional governor declared a state of emergency.
Heavy rains affected much of Black Sea coast, from the town of Dzhubga in the northwest to the city of Sochi in southeastern parts of the Krasnodar coast. Around 2,000 homes have been flooded in Apsheronsk alone, including those of 6 the reported casualties.
The power supply was disrupted, as well as road and railway traffic and even water supply in the Krasnodar region. There are interruptions in electricity and gas supply, TASS reports. About 30 settlements were flooded, roads and railways were damaged, several bridges and approaches to them were destroyed.
Tuapse (population 60 000) was left without water. A crucial bridge in the western part of Sochi was destroyed by the flood, effectively cutting road connection with most the city from the rest of Russia. The traffic may be restored by the end of the week.
Bad weather is expected to continue until October 26 or early October 27.
Residents are advised to keep away from areas prone to landslides. The region’s coastal terrain means it regularly has to deal with flash flooding, RT reports. “It has the sad distinction of being the place of one of the deadliest disaster of this kind in Russia’s history, the 2012 tragedy in Krymsk. The town is located on the mainland side of the mountain range and was devastated when unprecedentedly heavy rains caused a 3-meter high (9 feet) waterfront in which some 170 residents were killed.” Featured image: Bridge collapse in Sochi, Krasnodar, Russia October 25, 2018
