The Winds Are HIS Messengers

Historic "Tsunami-like" Flooding ... Not Since 1933

The great Mississippi River flooding is starting to resemble the shores of Japan. A result of the massive and unprecedented tornado damage to the mid-section of America. According to this map, the flow is in the direction of Katrina's legacy.

"As if tornadoes and damaging thunderstorms were not enough, historic flooding is also threatening the Mississippi River, below St. Louis, as well as the lower part of the Ohio River. The rising waters are expected to top levels set during February 1937. This mark is the middle Mississippi Valley's equivalent to the 1993 event farther north along Old Man River.

While the amount of evacuees currently numbers in the hundreds, it could soon number in the tens of thousands as levees are topped or breached and rivers expand their girth into more farming communities, towns and cities."

Killer Twisters "It was the deadliest day for tornadoes since a series of twisters killed more than 300 people in 11 states in 1974, Brooks added. The death toll from Wednesday has surpassed 250 and is rising. The worst day in recorded history for storm fatalities is March 18, 1925, with 747 deaths."

"Tornadoes whipped up by wind, not climate"

AFP - US meteorologists warned Thursday it would be a mistake to blame climate change for a seeming increase in tornadoes in the wake of deadly storms that have ripped through the US south." (report by Grady Dixon, assistant professor of meteorology and climatology at Mississippi State University)

The Winds Are HIS Messengers:

Tehillim 104: "HE makes the winds His messengers, the flaming fire His attendants; He established the earth upon its foundations, that it falter not forever. The watery deep, as with a garment You covered it; upon the mountains, water souls stand. ... He peers toward the earth and it trembles, He touches the mountains and they smoke. ...Sinners will cease from the earth, and the wicked will be no more...."
