C-17 transport aircraft of the US military headed to Texas delivering water and other supplies to Galveston and Corpus Christi according to senior U.S. defense officials.
The help comes at the request of the Federal Emergency Management Agency following a plea from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
There are currently no plans to use federal troops for ground-based support in Texas, although FEMA will be sending non-military personnel, officials said.
The Texas National Guard remains active across the state, helping local authorities get citizens to warm shelters and provide other life-saving assistance.
Meanwhile, crews worked throughout the night on Thursday to set up a mass bottled water distribution site at Houston’s Delmar Stadium.
In Galveston, a line of cars wrapped around city blocks as people waited to collect free bottled water at a distribution site. Much of the island city is still without water or under a boil-water advisory.
Public water supply systems have reported disruptions across Texas after the unprecedented winter storm swept across the state causing power blackouts.
Millions of residents have been without water from power outages including businesses and hospitals affecting their services. Where hospitals without adequate water have had to stop some medical care and also evacuate patients.
The Biblical prophecies foretell that there will be extreme weather in the Last Days (Luke 21, Revelation 8, Revelation 11, Revelation 16) as the earth’s weather will continue to intensify—signaling we are nearing the end of this age.
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).
