Midwest Braces for Another Round of Extreme Weather
Here we go again
JOPLIN, Mo. — As rescue crews in this city made their way through the debris of thousands of homes and concrete slabs where large stores once stood, forecasters warned that a vast swath of the United States could be hit by severe thunderstorms — with a risk of tornadoes in Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri, including the Joplin area.
One team poked through the remains of a Home Depot store, while others searched a Walmart and wrecked apartments as the clock ticked down on another round of severe storms that was forecast to hit later in the day. Expect “a few strong tornadoes, very large hail and damaging winds over parts of the southern and central Plains and Ozarks this afternoon and tonight,” the National Weather Service warned in a statement.
The Storm Prediction Center, a weather service division, said a repeat of the deadly April outbreak across the South could be setting up, with a possible large outbreak on Tuesday and bad weather potentially reaching the East Coast by Friday.
“This is a very serious situation brewing,” center director Russell Schneider said. source – MSNBC

Nature is pummeling the United States this year with extremes. Unprecedented triple-digit heat and devastating drought. Deadly tornadoes leveling towns. Massive rivers overflowing. A billion-dollar blizzard. And now, unusual hurricane-caused flooding in Vermont.Total weather losses top $35 billion, and that’s not counting Hurricane Irene, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. There have been more than 700 U.S. disaster and weather deaths, most from the tornado outbreaks this spring.

Violent storms that swept through the central U.S. killed at least 13 people in three states, toppling trees, crushing cars and tearing through a rural Arkansas fire station. The high-powered storms arrived as forecast Tuesday night and early Wednesday, just days after a massive tornado tore through the southwest Missouri town of Joplin, and killed 122 people.

Are we seeing freakish weather patterns coincidentally, or is it something more? Is God beginning to judge America for her sins? I honestly don’t know, but I do know this. America is no longer a nation that fears God, or even acknowledges Him in any meaningful sense. Think about it. We have taxpayer-funded child murder that extinguishes over 250,000 souls a year. We have gay rights, gay marriage, and an out of control porn industry. We have gambling appearing in state after state, and scores of other vice and vices on proud display. Our economy is shattered, we owe more money than we make, and unemployment is steady at 15-19%. We do not allow the Bible in the public schools, and neither can children start the day with prayer. We as a nation have told God to “get out” of our lives. Has He withdrawn His blessing from America?
