Caribbean urged to be prepared for “very active” hurricane season

hurricaneThe 2013 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on Saturday June 1, and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Management Agency (CDEMA) has urged Caribbean people to be prepared for a very active season.

Noted hurricane forecasters Dr William Gray and Philip Klotzbach of the Colorado State University have predicted an above-average season with 18 named storms, nine hurricanes and four major hurricanes likely to occur during the six-month period.

The United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting between 13 to 20 named storms, six to11 hurricanes, and three to six major hurricanes.

    NOAA has been implicated in weather weaponization. In case you didn’t know. The knowledge and means to start and stop hurricanes and other weather related catastrophies has been available for the last 30 yrs. All of these storms are not started by nature itself. From that article, and seeing that it was based out of Colorado, one can predict that the globalist weathermen will be busy up in the skies with their planes for the next 6 months.

    COCHRAN, we have to agree to disagree, but calling people stupid is not the best argument. We could jump high, jump low, but there is a creator of the universe, and we cannot deny what have been happening in the world and in our own country DOMINICA for the past twenty years or so.

    Lawlessness, disrespect to parents and authority, killings and a lot of natural destructions, all over the world. We humans have contributed to all these problems, but the Bible still stand PRODOMNANT. What is written is written. You say shut up, but one day the Lord God Almighty will shut you, and all of us who disobeys. Then what.

    Please go and educate yourself, because if you were well rounded, you would balance what, certain comments and see in the present world we are leaving if some things are facts. Thank You, and God help to enlighten you.

    The wind a waves did obey, but are we obeying the Lord God Almighty? We want to do what we want and do not want to suffer the consequences. When our children disobey, isn’t there consequences to their actions?

    God said in the last days, SUDDEN DESTRUCTIONS SHALL COME! So many example in the bible. Noah days, Israelites, Jonah etc. , because of disobedience. Too much corruption, lawlessness, disrespect to earthly and heavenly laws. We got to suffer the consequences. That’s the bottom line, take it or leave it.

      Shut up…it’s just bad weather…not the coming of christ…it happens every year. And every year they say it’s going to be “very active” DUH! again…it’s just weather…not God’s finger or spaceship

    The winds and the waves obey his voice that’s true. But are we obeying his voice as human beings? He also said, sudden destructions will come if we don’t obey him. We want to do what we want, when we want, and think there are no consequences by earthly law, much less heavenly law.

    When Jonah, the Israelites, and the people in Noah’s days did not obey, what happened to them.
    We have earthly children. When they disobey, isn’t there consequences? God is a loving God, but he is also a god of wrath.

      So, are you saying that God (your God) is a bully? Seems to me that mankind is the weakest link in all of creation. Why would a “loving God,” all-powerful, all-seeing, all-knowing, seek to unleash His power and revenge on poor mankind? If that is not a classic case of bullying, then I don’t know what bullying is.

      I do agree with you though that we reap what we sew. It appears that man is rushing headlong toward orchestrating his own destruction. Science shows that Earth is warming up at an increasingly perilous pace. And all evidence points to mankind’s doing.

      But we can’t help ourselves, can we? Got to have that big house, drive that big car, live on the river bank or the sea shore, despoil our drinking water, and the list of man’s destruction of Earth’s ecosystem is endless. Given that kind of history, man is surely fixing his own doom.

      In the words of brother Malcolm X, “The chicken [always] comes home to roost.” Poor us.
