It appears we are in the last days or certainly it seems that way. Daily we hear of worldwide catastrophes including but not limited to tornados, earthquakes, fires, floods, hail storms, and more. And just like the birth pangs the Bible describes it seems to be worse with each passing day. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
“Super Typhoon Mawar struck the northern edge of Guam on Wednesday with winds of 140 mph, lashing rain and lightning, the National Weather Service said , and cutting power to most of the island.
The slow-moving storm – the strongest to hit Guam in decades – appeared to have crossed the Rota Channel area close to Andersen Air Force Base, the weather service said in a Facebook Live broadcast. It apparently damaged or disconnected wind-speed indicators after they measured winds of about 104 mph.
Guam is a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean home to about 170,000 Americans, about 6,000 miles west of Los Angeles.
The worst of the storm hit the island in the afternoon, severing power to most residents and businesses, and continued with strong winds into the night. Authorities warned residents to remain indoors as tornado-strength winds continued and flash-flooding was predicted. Satellite radar showed the storm’s winds at up to 140 mph, the weather service said.”
