Stormageddon

That's the name of a National Geographic Channel program about the "massive floods in Australia and Pakistan, deadly mudslides in Brazil, an epic drought and wildfires in Russsia. (Will be repeated three hours later) And that doesn't include the earthquake and tzunami in Japan, or the flooding along the Mississippi and other rivers, Hurricane Katrina only 6 years ago, or the Icelandic volcano eruptions. Coming up on the National Geographic Channel a special on the tornadoes Southeastern U.S., the wildfires in Texas.

And the NOAA website adds this update:
On May 24, 2011, deadly tornadoes claimed 18 additional lives in Oklahoma (10), Kansas (2), and Arkansas (6) [and]
On Sunday, May 22, 2011, an EF-5 tornado hit the city of Joplin, Mo., leaving an estimated 132 people dead and 750 others injured, with 156 unaccounted for in Joplin.

The Joplin tornado is the deadliest since modern recordkeeping began in 1950 and is ranked 8th among the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history.
It's natural disaster night on the National Geographic Channel, which means it will also fear-monger the heck out of Global Warming, so be warned. AGW may or may not be real, but whether it results in a new ice age or rising of the sea level, climate change is pretty much standard procedure on earth, and I don't think there's much we can do but help each other and return to God. It's heartbreaking to see the poor people fighting floods and searching through the rubble of their homes, but we can and should help wherever we can instead of wasting our resources on bid government projects that eat up them up before they can reach those in need.

It's a time for serious thinking and good deeds, help those who've lost much, and remember these signs of the nearing return of the Savior:
87 For not many days hence and the earth shall tremble and reel to and fro as a drunken man; and the sun shall hide his face, and shall refuse to give light; and the moon shall be bathed in blood; and the stars shall become exceedingly angry, and shall cast themselves down as a fig that falleth from off a fig tree.

88 And after your testimony cometh wrath and indignation upon the people.

89 For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, that shall cause groanings in the midst of her, and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand.

90 And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds.

91 And all things shall be in commotion; and surely, men’s hearts shall fail them; for fear shall come upon all people.
