As Hurricane Laura made landfall last week near the Texas and Louisiana border packing 150-mph winds, the storm’s whipping gusts caused one river in the Lone Star state to flow backward for several hours.
Laura roared ashore as a Category 4 storm, which Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said was the most powerful hurricane to ever strike that state.
And the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said that the storm’s whipping winds pushed so much water ahead of it, that the Neches River in Texas reversed course.
When the storm roared across Cameron, La. just east of Beaumont, all of the water and wind it pushed onshore caused the Neches River to slow, then reverse flow.
And then after about 12 hours, the Neches River resumed its normal direction of flow toward Sabine Lake.
A similar effect from Laura was also reported on the Mississippi River, where barges had to fight the tides as they went downriver due to the whipping winds that pushed the water in the opposite direction.
The power of this storm actually reversing the flow of water in rivers is another example of how these storms are becoming stronger as they roar onto land out of the sea with massive wind and waves.
Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in a study said that there is an ongoing trend in recent years where these storms are getting stronger.
The Biblical prophecies (Luke 21) foretold this Last Days prophetic increase in the power of these storms, saying the sea and the waves will be roaring in a time of perplexity and distress for the nations as signs indicating the nearing end of this age of grace.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
