Extreme Flooding

The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season featured two of the most destructive storms in United States history, Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael, which were also two of the most searched weather events in 2018.

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a women experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period

… 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.

Google’s annual list of the most popular searches in 2018 show many people were trying to stay up-to-date and learn about the major weather disasters of the year.

The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season featured two of the most destructive storms in United States history, Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael, which were also two of the most searched weather events in 2018.

“Looking back on the 2018 hurricane season, there were 15 named tropical storms, eight of which became hurricanes. Of those eight hurricanes, two were major hurricanes. 2018 will go down as a year more active than normal,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist and Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski said.

Google released a video accompanying the list saying, “In a year of ups and downs, the world searched for “good” more than ever before” with clips of some of the most-searched content.

The two hurricanes that produced the most damage and loss of life this year did so with different characteristics.

Florence caused its death and destruction from flooding rainfall over a large area of southeastern South Carolina and southern North Carolina.

Michael’s damage will primarily be attributed to its powerful winds carving a 20-mile-wide area path. Michael still produced damaging hurricane-force winds over 150 miles inland from where it made landfall.
