From Daily Mail: Hundreds of flights have been cancelled and tens of thousands of homes are without power after huge tornadoes roared through Texas today – so powerful that they threw trucks across the sky.

Weather service advisories issued today said storm spotters and radar revealed separate tornadoes south of Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as Arlington and Lancaster. Incredible news footage of the twister shows a massive funnel cloud and tractor trailers being launched above the area.

One tornado tore through the Flying J Truck Plaza in Dallas, grabbing two trailer trucks and tossing them, said truck driver Michael Glennon, who caught the destruction on his video camera as debris swirled through the air.

He said: ‘The second trailer is ripped to pieces and thrown 50 to 100 feet into the air’. At the nearby Omni Mandalay Las Colinas hotel, tornado sirens sounded, alerting guests to get to safety. ‘The hotel has not been evacuated but we do have guests under cover,’ said a telephone receptionist at 421-room hotel.

From NBC: Severe detached thunderstorms in the Metroplex spawned at least two tornadoes that injured several people, damaged homes and tossed cars and big-rigs into the air Tuesday afternoon.

The storm activity started with storms firing up to the west of the Metroplex late Tuesday morning.  By 11 a.m., the first cells began developing in the western counties.

At about 12:30 p.m., a Tornado Watch was issued for all of the Metroplex until 8 p.m.  Just a few minutes later the first rotation was spotted on radar in Johnson County.

For the next two hours funnel clouds were spotted dropping out of the clouds in various parts of the Metroplex, but in two locations tornadoes touched down and stayed on the ground for extended periods of time as one plowed through Johnson and Tarrant counties and a second through Ellis and Dallas counties.

At 2:45 p.m., another Tornado Warning was issued for east and north Arlington, Euless, DFW Airport, Irving and parts of Dallas including the west side and Park Cities.  This warning will stay in effect until 3:30 p.m. source – NBCDFW

Hurricane Ian Slams Into Florida As 155 MPH Monster Causing Over A Million People To Lose Power, People Watch Houses Float Down The Street

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Hurricane Ian unleashed devastation on southwest Florida after a 6ft storm surge plowed through Fort Myers destroying houses as water engulfed two-story properties.

Pray for all the souls in the path of Hurricane Ian, it has hit the southwest coast of Florida much harder than anyone was anticipating. At 155 miles per hour, Hurricane Ian is a legitimate monster, swallowing everything in his path. I experienced Hurricane Matthew in 2017 as well as Hurricane Irma in 2018, but we on the east coast of Florida didn’t see damage like the west coast is now seeing.

“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” Matthew 14:30,31 (KJB)

Hurricane Ian has only been at work for a few hours, and already the damage toll is at $45 billion and climbing, this could be the costliest disaster certainly in state history, but also in US storm history as well. That’s how hard Ian is hitting, and he is on his way to where we are here in Saint Augustine. Please pray for everyone on the west coast of Florida and in Cuba, and pray for us here on the east coast. There will be no Bible study tonight, I am safely home and have no desire to venture outside.

Record-breaking Hurricane Ian leaves one million without power and sends tsunami of flood water crashing up West Coast

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: Horrifying footage showed wave after wave pummel the small city, swallowing buildings and cars as the monster tempest finally made landfall on Wednesday. It sees the ‘unsurvivable’ torrent of water engulf palm trees in the tropical resort and rip some from their roots as it was forced forwards by 155mph winds – only the fifth storm in history to hit land at that speed.

Fort Myers was one of the first cities to be battered by Ian, with apocalyptic images from after the initial surge showing homes decimated by its wrath as roads turned into rivers with the tsunami of floodwater.

Meanwhile Naples and Sanibel Island were also rocked by the ‘historic’ hurricane, with houses overwhelmed by water, debris flung through windows and some even ripped from their hinges.

Locals are reporting that hundreds of people in Naples are stranded on their rooftops, with the population of the town being made up mostly of elderly residents. And in Martin County, the sheriff’s office confirmed that this morning the body of 34-year-old construction worker Cody Dudek was found face down near Palm City.

Across the state 1,103,460 households saw blackouts and Ron DeSantis said during a lunchtime update he expected the number to reach the millions as well as $45billion-worth of damage.

The Florida Governor urged residents who decided to brave the storm to stay in their properties or emergency bunkers while the hurricane blasted the coastline and neared on Category 5. But some foolhardy locals ignored his pleas and flocked to the sea with inflatables and surfboards, while others gathered on piers to take risky photographs of the tempest. It comes just days after Cuba was tormented by the vicious hurricane, which left millions of dollars of damage and at least two people dead. READ MORE

A massive 7.4 earthquake in Tonga this morning sent 4ft. high tsunami waves that have already reached the west coast of the United States.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

After earthquake in Tonga, a Tsunami has struck the West Coast of the United States, with 4ft waves causing flooding in California with the worst of the devastation still yet to arrive, experts fear.

A few years ago, the idea of a massive earthquake in the South Pacific sending tsunami waves to the west coast of the United States was the stuff of end times futurist cinema. However, here at Day 670 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve this type of activity is just another day at the office, albeit the remote office via a Zoom call.

“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 (KJB)

For decades now, cheesy low-budget Bible prophecy movies have warned you of the coming New World Order, and in early 2020 it arrived on the scene. Granted it’s in its infancy, but it’s here and causing global havoc in nearly every nation on earth. You’ve been warned of the coming Mark of the Beast, and right now we are watching the human implantable digital ID Immunity Passport coming into view. The Bible warns about global pestilences and earthquakes that precede the time of Jacob’s trouble, known as the Days of Noah, and here we are. If you need further proof that we’re living in the end times, just give it a minute, that train is pulling into the station right now.

Tsunami strikes California: Waves up to four feet high cause coastal flooding as warning is issued for entire US West Coast and Hawaii after earthquake

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: A warning for Hawaii and the Pacific seaboard was issued earlier today after an undersea volcanic eruption near Tonga triggered a a 7.4 magnitude earthquake. There were no reports of injuries or the extent of the damage as communications with the country remained cut off hours after the eruption. Hundreds of frightened Tongans fled to higher ground as the eruption triggered a tsunami in the island nation, with a four-foot wave observed in Tonga’s capital Nuku’alofa.

In Santa Cruz, video showed significant flooding near the harbor, with at least one vehicle caught in the surge. Waves of up to 4.1 feet were recorded in Port San Luis, and in El Segundo, a number of daring surfers were spotted defying warnings to catch the powerful waves. Officials say widespread inundation is not expected, but rather coastal hazards such as rip currents and dangerous waves in harbors. Authorities caution that the first waves to strike may not be the highest waves experienced in an area.

The initial tsunami wave hit Los Angeles around 7.45am PST (3.45pm GMT) and San Francisco at 8.10am PST (4.10pm GMT), and was expected to last for several hours.

The ‘violent’ underwater volcanic eruption in the Pacific at 5.10pm local time (4.10am GMT) – that was visible from space – was confirmed as the cause of the tsunami, which overwhelmed homes, buildings, fences, roads and cars in Tonga around 20 minutes later.

Locals pleaded for people to ‘pray for us’ as the Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai volcanic eruption was compared to ‘bombs going off’ by those who heard it, followed by the tsunami surging ashore.

The eruption could be heard thousands of kilometres away and sparked warnings in New Zealand, Fiji, American Samoa and Australia, with several Australian offshore territories under threat, including Lord Howe Island, Norfolk Island and Macquarie Island, officials said.

After earthquake a tsunami advisory was also put into effect for the entire US Pacific seaboard and Hawaii.

‘A tsunami capable of producing strong currents that may be hazardous to swimmers, boats, and coastal structures is expected,’ the US National Weather Service said in a flash bulletin on Saturday morning. ‘If you are located in this coastal area, move off the beach and out of harbours and marinas. Do not go to the coast to watch the tsunami. Be alert to instructions from your local emergency officials,’ the agency warned.

Early on Saturday, Hawaii was already seeing tsunami wave activity of up to 2.7 feet. The advisory now extends from California’s border with Mexico to Attu Island at the tip of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands.

The tsunami is projected to hit Monterey, California at 7.35am PST (15:35 GMT), where officials say it is not expected to cause widespread inundation, but rather coastal hazards. The initial tsunami wave is projected to hit Los Angeles around 7.45am PST and San Francisco at 8.10am PST, but the highest water levels may not arrive for several hours. Satellite images showed a huge eruption lasting around eight minutes, a 3-mile wide plume of ash, steam and gas rising like a mushroom about 12 above the blue Pacific waters.

Hurricane Ida Is Now A Category 4 As It Blasts Ashore Gulf Coast Louisiana With 150 Mile Per Hour Sustained Winds And Stronger Than Katrina

Category 4 storm Hurricane Ida made landfall on the same date Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana and Mississippi 16 years earlier.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Hurricane Ida’s outer bands began bringing heavy rain to the Louisiana coast early Sunday as the storm continued to strengthen overnight. It was packing 150 mph sustained winds, just 7 mph shy of Category 5 force, as the storm’s center neared the U.S.

Hurricane Ida has made its way to the shoreline of Louisiana, with unbelievable fury pent up in her massive eye, with coming destruction that will be heartbreaking to watch and mind-numbing to comprehend. In a very ironic twist, it is hitting Louisiana on the exact anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a storm that claimed more than 1,800 lives, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. Hurricane Ida is every bit as powerful as Katrina, so now would be a great time to pray for everyone in her path as we did on this morning’s Sunday Service.

“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?” Job 38:22,23 (KJB)

Right about now, you could make a pretty good case that America is under judgment from God, not just because of Ida, but because of everything else taking place all at the same time. Did you know that Joe Biden met with the new Israeli PM Naftali Bennett on Friday to discuss dividing Israel to create the Two State Solution? God sure did. Think of how bad Katrina was, and she was only a Cat 3, Ida is a Cat 4. Please pray for the people of Louisiana.

The powerful Category 4 storm made landfall on the same date Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana and Mississippi 16 years earlier, about 40 miles west of where Category 3 Katrina first struck land.

FROM  ACCUWEATHER: Evacuations took place Saturday across parts of the Gulf Coast as officials around the region urged residents to make final preparations and heed warnings ahead of the life-threatening impacts posed by Hurricane Ida, which AccuWeather forecasters expect will roar ashore Sunday.

Hurricane Ida is set to become the first landfalling hurricane on United States soil in 2021, and AccuWeather forecasters warn Ida is set to slam into Louisiana as a very dangerous Category 4 major hurricane and unleash major impacts across the Gulf Coast and Southeast. AccuWeather forecasters, expecting extreme impacts for the Gulf Coast, have rated Ida a 4 on the AccuWeather RealImpact™ Scale for Hurricanes.

On Saturday afternoon, Ida began to rapidly intensify over the Gulf Coast, with wind speeds increasing from 85 mph to 105 mph, making the storm a Category 2 hurricane (maximum sustained winds of 96 to 110 mph) on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Early on Sunday morning, Ida again strengthened into a major Category 3 hurricane, then quickly became a Category 4, packing 140 mph sustained winds.

As of 11 a.m. CDT Sunday morning, the NHC said Ida’s sustained winds were hitting 150 mph, with gusts even higher. The storm was swirling over the Gulf of Mexico and moving northwest at a speed of 13 mph, within 25 miles of Grand Isle, Louisiana. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 50 miles from the storm’s center and tropical-storm-force winds extended outward up to 150 miles.

“Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion today in the warning area along the northern Gulf coast,” the National Hurricane Center warned on Saturday. It added that the hurricane was expected to bring “life-threatening storm surge flooding, damaging winds and flash flooding” to potions of the Louisiana and Mississippi coastlines.

As of Sunday morning, a variety of warnings were in place along parts of the central Gulf Coast. Hurricane warnings were in effect from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the mouth of the Pearl River, and across Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas and Metropolitan New Orleans. Tropical storm warnings were in effect from Cameron, Louisiana, to west of Intracoastal City, Louisiana, as well as from the mouth of the Pearl River to the Alabama and Florida border.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency Thursday due to the potential impacts from the hurricane. He also called on residents to heed the warnings. READ MORE
