While there are weather problems throughout the world, today I would like to show a few excerpts from news pieces in the past day or so concerning problems in the USA.
The first relates to the fires in California:
Associated Press – Oct 22, 2007
SAN DIEGO – Wildfires fanned by fierce desert winds consumed huge swaths of bone-dry Southern California on Monday, burning buildings and forcing more than 265,000 evacuations from Malibu to San Diego, including a jail, a hospital and nursing homes. More than a dozen wildfires engulfed the region, killing at least one person, injuring dozens more and threatening scores of structures. Overwhelmed firefighters said they lacked the resources to save all the threatened homes.
More than 250,000 people were forced to flee in San Diego County alone, where hundreds of patients were moved by school bus and ambulance from a hospital and nursing homes.
“It was nuclear winter. It was like Armageddon. It looked like the end of the world,” Mitch Mendler, a San Diego firefighter, said as he and his crew stopped at a shopping center parking lot to refill their water truck from a hydrant near a restaurant…
Parts of seven Southern California counties, including Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego, were on fire.
The next two concern the drought and the southeast area. Here is the first:

With all the different figures being mentioned about lake levels it’s easy to be confused as to exactly how much water is left in Lake Lanier.Friday, the Army Corps of Engineers came out with some clarifying information about the lake status.“Although it’s more stressed than it’s ever been, it can serve us for a good while to come,” said Robert Holland of the Army Corp of Engineers. “We’ve heard about numbers in the media put out by the Corps and others that were a little more alarming than they should have been.”
The most glaring numbers refer to available water in what’s known as the conservation pool, or normal use range. However, there is additional water available for use beyond that.
“It may be 100 days or so to the bottom of the conservation pool, but our estimates and under certain assumptions that we beyond that have another 169 days and then if we were able to reduce releases significantly, we can go on for more than a year,” Holland explained.
Here is the second on the drought:
Published on: 10/23/07 Someone has pulled the stopper from the bathtub and all the water is draining out!Metro Atlanta and North Georgia, as well as most of the Southeast, is in the grip of what may prove to be the worst drought on record. At the same time, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is releasing extreme amounts of water from Lake Lanier — our region’s key water supply source — to enhance the habitat of two species of mussels and to keep a small coal-fired power plant in operation.Comments by COGwriter:
Other areas in the USA (including the Midwest and the West) are also in drought conditions. Also, even in the northern states, unusually warm weather has become the pattern in some areas.
According to the COG understanding of biblical prophecy, the USA is likely to experience a variety of weather problems before it is weakened, then ultimately destroyed militarily.
Regarding weather, LCG’s RC Meredith has written:
The above and more is in the booklet Who Controls the Weather? – by Roderick C. Meredith.
As far as the ultimate destruction of the USA and British peoples by a European military power, even Catholic private prophecies seem to predict that.
Two articles of related interest may include:
Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”?
