West Virginia Hit With 1000 Year Flood

Not more than a few decades ago when a huge rain/flood event would happen the media would call it "a 100 year flood".  About a decade ago the floods went past what anyone could remember in the past 100 years so they started calling epic rain events, "a 500 year flood".

With what has happened in West Virginia over the past few days, they have had to come up with some new lingo to describe just how momentous and devastating the flooding it's now called "a 1000 year flood."

West Virginia floods: At least 20 dead in 'once-in-1,000-year' event

RAVENSWOOD, W.Va., June 24 (UPI) -- The death toll from massive flooding in West Virginia continued to rise Friday.

Officials said Friday evening that at least 20 people were confirmed dead after torrential rains fell on the state and triggered widespread flash flooding.

The flooding is the third-deadliest in West Virginia's history -- following similar events in 1972 and 1985.

"I am saddened to report that, at this point, we have confirmed 14 individuals who have lost their lives in the storm," West Virginia Gov. Earl Tomblin said at a news conference Friday.

"As West Virginians we are all praying for those who have lost loved ones," he added.

Tomblin, who's declared emergencies in 44 of the state's 55 counties, said he planned to survey the flooding from the air Friday but could not because every available aircraft was being used for rescue and relief efforts.

Up to 10 inches of rain fell in some counties, leading to significant flash flooding. Thousands also remain without power across the state, utility officials said.

A dramatic scene played out Friday in the southern part of the state when floodwaters pushed a burning house down the Howard Creek.


Let's think about this trend.....about 4000 years ago Noah and his family got in an ark and were soon witness to a global flood that wiped out all humans on earth.  Could it be possible that these epic storms/floods/quakes/tornadoes/volcanic eruptions are all just more signs that the earth is experiencing the "birth pains" that Jesus told us to watch for?

If so, these events will culminate in the worst outbreaks of nature that the the world has EVER seen...called The Great Tribulation.  Billions of people will die when nature turns on the left-behind inhabitants of planet earth.  Jesus said that if he didn't return to earth to shorten those days NO FLESH WOULD SURVIVE.

Let's remember that God promised he would never destroy the earth with a flood again.  He sent a rainbow to remind us of this promise.

Let's also remember that the earth will one day be destroyed again....but the next time will be by fire.

2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

One more comment on the rainbow....isn't it ironic that the godless people of the LGBT movement have hijacked the symbol of God's promise and used it to promote LGBT PRIDE?
