breaking us news hurricane

(Worthy News) - Harvey was a tropical storm but intensified Thursday into a hurricane — with the potential for up to 3 feet of rain, 125 mph winds and 12-foot storm surges.

Forecasters said Harvey was gathering strength faster than previously predicted and labeled it a “life-threatening storm” that posed a “grave risk.”

As of midday Thursday, Harvey was about 340 miles southeast of Corpus Christi, moving to the north-northwest at about 10 mph.

Nearly all of the Texas' 367-mile coast was under a hurricane or tropical storm warning or watch as of Thursday. [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. Harvey has now gone to a category 4 storm.

    "Time" has now gone short. US Americans (not to be confused with all the other types of Americans) need to no longer be focused on judging each other but on compassion for one another. We need to pay attention to the needs of each one of us, our neighbors, then on out into the worlds (other nations and areas) needs as assets may provide so.

    Let us each, as we might be able, help our fellow "man" in Texas and on out into the rest of each State in need, that our God might see and help us as we have helped each other. Amen.

    Time has gone short. Let us each one of us, all, be seen and known by the God who really does exist as they who are not selfish, remembering first to do good and provide first for our own families, then our neighbors, and those in our own States, nation ....

    Let us be found faithful stewards of the resources God has given to each one of us when we see Him face to face.


    I would like to share a few facts concerning recent events in the U.S.: On 8/21/17 a total eclipse of the sun traversed the U.S. from coast to coast; Three days later on 8/24/17 Harvey became a category 4 hurricane; Currently this 500 year flood is stalled over Houston, TX and is poised to drop 40 in. of rain and produce many tornadoes over the city.
    Houston is home to 37 megachurches (over 2000 members) including Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church - Attendance: 43,500 (largest church congregation in the U.S.).

    1 Pet 4:17 For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will [be] the end of those who do not respect {or} believe {or} obey the good news (the Gospel) of God?

    It is time for all true Christians to confess our sins, repent, and pray that our Father God will have mercy on us. It's time to rejoice and look up, for our redemption is drawing near!

  3. While watching the terror created by the Hurricane Harvey, it will take years to rebuild the destruction of the State of Texas. The fourth largest U.S. city with 2.3 million people is already in a total disarray. Most of the home owners don't have flood insurance, thus they are losing their wealth too fast. Hurricane Sandy and Katrina will be smaller events when compared with Hurricane Harvey.

    Houston being the main nerve center of the infrastructure of the energy industry of the U.S., both natural gas and oil, some interruption will be taking place.

    Thank GOD, less death is heard. Here we see the people of all colors are helping and trying to rescue helpless people, a good sign to watch. Texas, largest State of the mainland needs all the helps from all across the nation in a hurry.
