… 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.
High-impact eruption at Manam volcano, heavy ashfall blocking sunlight, P.N.G.: VIDEO

A powerful eruption started at Manam volcano, Papua New Guinea around 03:00 UTC on December 8, 2018. Heavy ashfall is falling on the island, blocking out sunlight.
Volcanic ash rose up to 13.7 km (45 000 feet) above sea level, according to the Darwin VAAC, forcing authorities to raise the Aviation Color Code to Red.
Heavy ashfall is blocking out sunlight on the island, locals report.
Ash to 13.7 km (45 000 feet) a.s.l. is now dissipating, Darwin VAAC reported 13:20 UTC. Meteorological cloud is obscuring the summit, making it difficult to determine if volcanic ash to 8.2 km (27 000 feet), reported a few hours ago, is ongoing.
Volcanic ash to 13.7 km is expected to dissipate within the next 3 hours.
The previous high-impact eruption of this volcano took place on August 25, 2018, after island residents reported increased activity beginning an hour before.
According to the Darwin VAAC, ash plumes visible in satellite data rose to 15.2 km (50 000 ft) a.s.l. The plume drifted W and NW, causing ash and scoria to fall in areas from Dangale in the NNE to Jogari in the SW part of the island.
The most affected areas were Baliau and Kuluguma; residents reported fallen tree branches from the deposits, and conditions so dark that flashlights were needed to move around.
Lava flows traveled down the NE valley and pyroclastic-flow deposits were evident in the NE valley all the way to the sea.
The pyroclastic flows buried six houses in Boakure village though the occupants escaped to the nearby Abaria village.
About 2 000 people evacuated after the eruption.
