… 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).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several 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 Storm “Usagi” made landfall in southern Vietnam around 06:00 UTC on November 25, 2018, with maximum sustained winds of 83 km/h (52 mph). This is the 27th named storm of the 2018 Pacific typhoon season and the 8th tropical cyclone to hit Vietnam this season. It comes just several days after Tropical Cyclone “Toraji” hit the country, leaving more than 12 people dead.
Usagi made landfall close to the Vung Tau town of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and continued moving northwestward inland over Ho Chi Minh city area toward southern Cambodia as a tropical depression. Authorities issued evacuation orders for more than 100,000 people ahead of the storm.
Early November 26, its center was located approximately 80 km (50 miles) NW of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and 50 km (31 miles) SE of Smaong Khang Cheung, Cambodia with maximum sustained winds of 46 km/h (28 mph).
Ho Chi Minh received more than 350 mm (14 inches) before the storm moved away, resulting in widespread flooding and travel disruption. Winds brought by the storm downed numerous trees in the popular beach town of Vung Tau, destroyed roofs of homes and sank boats along the coast, caused power outages and damaged at least 51 homes in Ho Chi Minh City area.
At least one person lost its life after being hit by a falling tree while riding a motorcycle.
Usagi moved over the Philippines as a tropical depression before it hit Vietnam, leaving at least one person dead on November 21 due to floods triggered by heavy rainfall. In addition, national authorities reported 61,574 people affected in 128 municipalities across Samar Island (Eastern Visayas Region) and southern Bicol Region.
