Truth of Global Warming: Don’t Let Them Downplay Midwest Tornadoes!

507283-el-reno-tornado    So far 13 counties in Illinois and Indiana have been declared disaster areas following some 80 tornadoes that struck Midwest America over the weekend. Leaving damage in 12 states, these storms killed at least eight victims, and injured some 200 others––with some in traumatized shock that everything they owned was gone––and another 600,000 in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan without power!

Within minutes after violent whirling winds touched down, horrified people screamed crying in the street as their houses were completely blown away.  CNN iReporter Anthony Khoury quotes homeowner Michelle Crumrine, who watched as her home was swept away: “A lot of people have a pile of rubble still, and I don’t have anything . . . It’s gone. I don’t know where it went.”

The National Weather Service measured tornado speeds at nearly 200 mph, speeds causing EF-4 damage, within the highest possible of EF-5.  From the air, storm consequence is easily seen in swaths of damage at least three miles long. No tornado of such strength has swept through the midwest in November since 1950.

Associated Press and report a total of 12 states affected by the storms: Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and western New York.

Designated counties are now eligible for state and federal aid in the struggle to recover from the disaster.  According to CBS News those counties include:  Champaign, Douglas, Grundy, Jasper, LaSalle, Massac, Pope, Tazewell, Wabash, Washington, Wayne, Will, and Woodford.

Complete damage reports are not in as the wind storms affected over 60 million Americans.  State Farm Insurance says it has received 1,834 homeowners’ claims in Illinois, and another 1,245 in Indiana, brought by the tornadoes and dt common streams StreamServerother severe weather damage this week.

Dominic Rushe of explains    that warm temperatures in the 60s and 70s could produce severe weather. Meteorologist Matt Friedlein told him:  “You don’t need temperatures in the 80s and 90s to produce severe weather [because] the strong winds compensate for the lack of heating.”

News coverage enthralled by the ravages of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines seems to downplay this weekend’s tornado destruction, as well as the storms simultaneously striking Italy’s Island of Sardinia in The Mediterranean leaving 17 dead, washing out several bridges, and sweeping away dozens of cars!

Again, weather services referred to those storms as ‘freak’!  But none of these frightful events are bizarre.  They are the result of Global Warming!  And until governments, and news reporters start dealing with the real source of these tragedies, such devastation will only drastically increase! But if they don’t:

Only Almighty God can stave off such consequences in these end times.  And He is best motivated by the prayers of those who are ‘in’ Christ Jesus The LORD, Who said in Bible prophecies:  “And there shall be signs . . . upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and waves roaring (Luke 21: 25).”

Through the power of prayer, Christians can foresee such destruction coming to earth, and ask God for revival so that millions more will be preserved for heaven before the ultimate destroyer of billions finally emerges from Syria!
