Hurricane Maria-Cat4 a Direct Hit on Puerto Rico
« on: September 20, 2017, 11:37:51 AM »
One disaster after another strikes North America. The United States being hit by hurricanes one after another, and Mexico two powerful quakes one after another. Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico this morning with sustained winds of 145 mph and gusts close to 200 mph. Modern high rise buildings are seen to be coming apart as their sides are being torn off. Maria is another very large hurricane completely covering Puerto Rico.




If we doubted we are at end of times, we ought to be convinced as prophecies are being fulfilled. The last steps will be rapid ones. Come Lord Jesus!

I have family in Puerto Rico. Lost contact with them this morning at 7:00 a.m.. Brother in law had the roof blown off his house. They have received around 40 inches of rain since this morning. Towers are down. Not sure when electricity and phone connections will be restored.  Wife may be called by Feds for work detail there for 30 days.

We will be praying for your family, cp.  It is a great disaster, but God is in absolute control. Satan can only go so far. Texas got 40" in some places, but not in one day. That must be getting close to record rainfall and will create dangerous flash floods.

We have had no communication but learned that the military came in with boats and evacuated the homes. Probably all the cars were lost as the water apparently was up to the roofs of the houses. They do not have auto and house insurance like we do here. We are hearing that the people will be given $30, 000 per family. That will at least cover their cars.

I imagine that it would be very expensive to get insurance coverage since hurricanes are always a threat.  Allowing people to rebuild in flood areas in the US, and giving them government money to rebuild, it seems that one day the money will run out. Maybe that day has come? With the increase in disasters that we know are coming, we can predict the economic crisis that will follow. The US has already spent the economic future of our children. We are at the end of a very long rope. So many events point to the end of this Earth's history. We can expect San Francisco to be hit by a catastrophic earthquake soon.    And, we know the great cities of the world will suffer catastrophic calamities soon also.  Come Lord Jesus!
