Extreme Flooding

Severe flash floods hit Accra, at least 7 people dead or missing, Ghana

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 woman 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.

Severe flash floods hit Accra, at least 7 people dead or missing, Ghana

At least 5 people were killed and 2 remain missing after a surprisingly strong storm hit capital Accra, Ghana late April 7, 2019. 

Heavy rain lasted less than 2 hours, leaving behind flooded roads and scores of stranded motorists. 

Running water spilled from chocked drains unto the roads at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and left pedestrians with no choice but to walk through the water which was around the knee level, GhanaWeb reports.

The Greater Accra National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), said out of the five dead persons, one was electrocuted after coming in contact with a live wire, one woman and her baby perished in the rain, as did two men and the electrocuted person.

The worst affected area was Kwame Nkrumah Circle where most of the roads were unpassable. The area now unofficially represents the benchmark for Accra foods.

Authorities say they have already begun desilting storm drains ahead of the rainy season.

Heavy rains hit Accra on June 18, 2018, causing destructive floods across the city and leaving at least 3 people dead and 4 missing.

The floods caused chaos across the capital and left many people trapped in their homes and vehicles. Local media reported numerous destroyed homes and Greater Accra Region under 1 m (3.3 feet) of water.

 The flooding has again exposed the poor drainage system in Accra, which comes in for severe criticism every rainy season.
