Worst Flooding in Decades Hits Northeast USA


Earlier this week, I reported about flooding in Japan and the Gulf Coast of the USA (see Typhoon Floods Kill in Japan, While Lee Floods Louisiana).  Now there is major flooding in the Northeast of the USA:

USA Today- 9 September 2011
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle – Victoria FreileGary McLendon – 9 September 2011
Scenes of devastation were occurring up and down the Susquehanna River watershed, where remnants of Tropical Storm Lee poured water on top of communities already soaked by the remnants of Irene. Hundreds of roads were closed and a total of more than 100,000 people were ordered to evacuate, most of them in the Binghamton area of New York and the Wilkes-Barre area of Pennsylvania.

“We can no longer use the term ‘100-year flood’, as we have now had three major floods in the past 12 years,” said Haggerty. “This is not only a Lyndhurst issue, but one which affects all of those who live within the flood zones of the Passaic River.”

Flood Warning for the Wallkill River at Gardiner

‎Times Herald-Record – 9 September 2011
The National Weather Service continues a Flood Warning for the Wallkill River at Gardiner through Friday night as water levels remain above flood stage.

So Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey are having a lot of flood issues (and a week or so ago, Vermont was hit hard by Hurricane Irene).  My wife was visiting relatives in New Jersey earlier this week and told me that there were a lot of flooded streets where she had been driving.

Jesus, of course, warned about a time with such troubling issues:

8 …and there will be…troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

We may be at this prophetic point as all the floods, droughts, earthquakes, and other problems that have happened in the past year or so could be considered as “troubles”–the beginning of sorrows may have began two years ago this month.

My 2009 book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect mentioned the following was about to happen:

Odd weather patterns result in food shortages and natural disasters. Matthew 24:7
The world is actually in a berserk transition, as the real age of peace is not yet here. It may be a period of chaos. It is the beginning of sorrows Matthew 24:8

Perhaps the record weather problems can serve as another wake-up call that things can change very quickly and that the time to repent is now:

30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17:30-31)

There are troubles and repentance is needed.
