My Comment: We are seeing extreme weather across the globe, as we are witnessing artic temperatures and extreme weather in the US, Australia is experiencing the most extreme heat, and fires. Thousands of bats have died, Kangaroos are collapsing and fires are erupting. Read here & here. Even those who are secular know something is wrong. Earthquakes on the rise, and volcanoes that haven’t erupted for hundreds of year.Luke 21:25-26
- 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;
- 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.
The South Pacific nation of Tonga has been lashed by a powerful cyclone, destroying homes and ripping roofs from churches and other public buildings in the populous northern islands. At least one person died.
An aerial survey of the damage was under way to assess the destruction and two navy patrol boats were on their way to the disaster area, Tonga\’s Director of Emergencies Leveni Aho said.
“It’s pretty bad,” Aho said of the damage from Saturday’s cyclone. “By this evening, we’ll have a much better picture of what’s happened.”
A state of emergency remained in effect for two of Tonga’s three island groups, Vava’u and Ha’apai , on Sunday after a category-five storm Cyclone Ian brought heavy rain and strong winds forecast to gust at up to 287 kilometers (178 miles) per hour on Saturday.
The storm was downgraded later Saturday from the top of the scale of destructive cyclones to category four, with gusts of up to 250 kph (155 mph). On Sunday, the cyclone was tracking southeast away from Tonga.
