AccuWeather - A powerful storm of historical proportions is aiming at much of the Northeast Thursday into Friday and will follow up to a foot and a half of snow through Wednesday over upstate New York and western New England. This second storm will be nothing short of a monster. Even in light of the blizzards earlier this winter that targeted the southern mid-Atlantic, this may be the one that people remember the most this winter in parts of New England and the northern mid-Atlantic. At its peak, the storm will deliver near hurricane-force wind gusts (74 mph) blinding snow falling at the rate of over an inch per hour. For some people in upstate New York and eastern and northern Pennsylvania, this may seem more like a "snow hurricane" rather than a blizzard.
Cities likely to be impacted by heavy snow for all or at least part of the storm include: New York City, Albany, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Scranton, Allentown, Reading, Williamsport and Burlington. The storm will also deliver heavy rain and flooding northeast of the center of circulation. The cities of Boston, Providence and Portland may have their hands full with coastal flooding problems. The combination of wind, heavy rain and heavy snow will lead to extensive power outages and property damage. Where numerous trees and lines are blown down, the power could be out for a week in some areas. Impacts on travel in the region may be severe. The effects of the storm will lead to flight delays and cancellations. Some major roads may be blocked by snow, downed trees or flooding.
Hurricane-Like Storm Aims for Pennsylvania to Maine Thursday, Friday – February 2/23/2010
BibleSearchers - Scientists look at the rapid transitions and extremes of weather as part of great cycles of weather transitions, yet the prophets have spoken that at the time of the end great catastrophic and apocalyptic events will occur during the Time of Tribulations as the great streams of prophecy will come to their concluding end. For those with “eyes that can see” might take note of these catastrophes as part of G-d’s withdrawal of His Divine Providence from the nations of the world. The “pharaohs” that rule in the countries seeking global control of the world’s economy and geo-political reigns of governance will respond to these “Acts of G-d” as did the Pharaoh of Egypt. They will harden their hearts against the Ruler of the Universe and the people He calls His own; the Jews of the House of Judah and the soon coming Return of the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel.
With each “paralyzing blizzard”, catastrophic hurricanes, epic clustering of tornadoes, mega-tsunamis and cyclones, the rise of universal totalitarianism will be the globalist’s response to the cries of the nations of the earth to bring “Peace with great Security”. They will only find the wrath of Nature as the Sheltering Hands of the Divine will no longer be there to protect. With tears in His eyes, He will shield His eyes from the evil that we have allowed to consume our lands. These events will be perceived as the “wrath and judgment of G-d”. If only we understood that it truly was the loss of His Loving Presence that we failed to recognize neither did we appreciate. Before it is all over, the world as we know will be gone, but in its place will be a renewed Earth as the Messiah will come to reign with the “rod of iron” to bring peace to all mankind.
