Gray whales off of the Israeli coastline
May 2010 - That link you had in ZionsCry about the whales they said that were supposed to be in the Gulf of California instead of the Israeli coast.
Do you think God is trying to send a message about the future of California and a sign to Israel that they are still his chosen people by showing them a miraculous event.
They haven't seen these whales there for a few hundred years!

South America flooding
Dec 26, 2015 - Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay worst flooding in years.
Heavy summer rains have caused rivers to swell across a vast area.
In Paraguay, the most affected country, President Horacio Cartes declared a state of emergency. The Paraguay river almost overtopping its banks, which could lead to widespread flooding in the Asuncion area.
Rare winter flood threatens Missouri, Illinois levees
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A rare winter flood pushed swollen rivers and streams to virtually unheard-of heights Tuesday, sparking widespread evacuations and the transfer of inmates from an Illinois state prison as Missouri's governor activated the National Guard to help divert traffic away from submerged roads.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said water from the rising Mississippi River and its tributaries threatened to spill over 19 federal levees, putting hundreds of homes in jeopardy.
Record flooding was projected in some Mississippi River towns after several days of torrential rain that caused sewage to flow unfiltered into waterways.
The Meramec River near St. Louis was expected to get to more than 3 feet above the previous record by late this week.
At least 18 deaths in Missouri and Illinois were blamed on flooding, mostly involving vehicles that drove onto swamped roadways.
The river on Tuesday spilled over the top of the levee at West Alton, Missouri, about 20 miles north of St. Louis. Mayor William Richter ordered any of the town's approximate 520 residents who had not already evacuated to get out of harm's way.
Nahum 1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
Nah 1:3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
55-foot 'Sea Monster' Washes Up In China
Jun 22, 2011 - A massive sea creature has washed up on a beach in Guangdong, China. So badly decayed it cannot be positively identified, the "sea monster" is 55 feet long and weights approximately 4.5 tons, according to The Sun.
Upon seeing a photo of the carcass, three marine biology experts — Scott Baker of Oregon State University Marine Mammal Institute, Bill Perrin, senior scientist for marine mammals at the National Marine Fisheries Service, and Bob Brownell, senior scientist for international protected resources with the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration's Fisheries Service — all think it's a whale.
Based on its throat grooves, "[we agree] that it's a balaenopterid," Baker told Life's Little Mysteries. "Judging from the reported size of 55 ft., maybe a fin whale. From the photo, however, it does not really look to be 55 ft., and so might be a smaller balaenopterid, like one of the 'Bryde's' whales."
"We all hope somebody collects the bones and a tissue sample for genetic analysis as recovery of whale carcasses is rare along the coast of China," he added.
The beast is tangled in ropes, and locals theorize that area fisherman once caught it but could not haul it in owing to its gargantuan size. According to The Sun, people have flocked to see the sea creature despite its foul stench.

Southern states brace for surging Mississippi River flooding
Reuters) - Residents of southern states along the Mississippi River are bracing for the flooding that has swamped communities from the Ohio River Valley to eastern Oklahoma over the last week, causing thousands of evacuations and killing at least 31 people.
Officials in Louisiana are checking levees daily, and Exxon Mobil Corp has decided to shut its 340,571 barrel-per-day refined products terminal in Memphis, Tennessee, as floodwaters threatened to inundate the facility just south of the city's downtown.
"All that water's coming south and we have to be ready for it," Louisiana Lieutenant Governor-Elect Billy Nungesser told CNN. "It's a serious concern. It's early in the season. We usually don't see this until much later."
Workers in southwestern Tennessee were preparing sandbags on Friday in hopes of limiting damage from the Mississippi when it crests at Memphis next week, state emergency management officials said. Officials were also examining levees, to make sure they would hold.
"We're moving things up high and we've got our generators out and got some extra water," said Dotty Kirkendoll, a clerk at Riverside Park Marina on McKellar Lake, which feeds off the Mississippi.
Flooding in the U.S. Midwest typically occurs in the spring as snowmelt swells rivers. Freezing temperatures that have followed the rare winter flooding have added to regional woes.
Most of the deaths in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas have been caused by people driving into flooded areas after days of downpours. The dead included a central Illinois teenager whose body was recovered on Friday near where a truck in which he was riding was found the day before. Another teen from the truck was still missing.
Authorities also continued searching on Friday for country singer Craig Strickland, who had gone duck hunting on an Oklahoma lake during stormy conditions. His friend, Chase Morland, was found dead on Monday.
Twelve Illinois counties have been declared disaster areas, and Governor Bruce Rauner on Friday ordered Illinois National Guard troops into flooded areas in the southern part of the state to mitigate flood damage and help with evacuation efforts.
The Mississippi is expected to crest at Thebes, in southern Illinois, at 47.5 feet (14 meters) on Sunday, more than 1.5 feet above the 1995 record, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.
Flood warnings were also in effect on Friday for parts of Texas, Oklahoma, the Carolinas, Alabama and Kentucky, the NWS said, while major flooding was occurring on the Arkansas River and its tributaries in that state.
Dozens have died in U.S. storms, which also brought unusual winter tornadoes and were part of a wild worldwide weather system over the Christmas holiday period that also saw severe flooding in Britain.
More than 100,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes in areas bordering Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina after floods due to heavy summer rains caused by El Niño, authorities have said.
Global weather dominated conversation on social media over the holiday season after the international climate deal in Paris.
Particularly hard hit in the United States in recent days has been Missouri, which has suffered historic flooding.
Close to St. Louis on Friday, the Mississippi, the second-longest river in the United States, was falling after reaching near-record heights, the NWS said.
The Meramec River, which meanders near St. Louis and empties into the Mississippi, broke height records on Thursday, sending a deluge of water over its banks and forcing the closure of two major highways.
Interstates 55 and 44 reopened on Friday, but many other roads remained closed in the St. Louis area, state officials said, causing extreme traffic congestion.
Thousands of people evacuated from their homes earlier in the week were waiting to return to their communities and begin the process of cleaning up. Hundreds of structures have been damaged or destroyed, local officials said.

Significant tornado outbreak looms for Louisiana to Florida, Georgia
A significant outbreak of tornadoes is expected across the southern United States into Wednesday, and severe weather could strike areas as far north as the mid-Atlantic by midweek.
The same winter storm set to spread disruptive snow into the Midwest and push drenching rain across the Northeast's Interstate-95 corridor threatens to ignite severe weather in a dozen states.
The first sporadic severe thunderstorms ignited over central Texas with a few incidents of large hail and strong wind gusts during Monday night. However, the outbreak will grow in size and magnitude into Tuesday night.
Following severe thunderstorms and perhaps a couple of isolated tornadoes near the upper Texas coast into Tuesday midday, a very dangerous situation will unfold across much of the central Gulf Coast states.
"There is the potential for not only a severe weather outbreak, but also a significant number of tornadoes from Louisiana to western Georgia and the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity.
Some of the tornadoes may be strong and on the ground for more than a few minutes.
The risk of tornadoes, along with damaging wind gusts and large hail, will extend into the nighttime hours, adding to the danger.
The threat of severe weather will expand northward and southward as it pushes toward the Atlantic Coast beyond Tuesday night.
Severe thunderstorms will push northeastward across the Carolinas and southern Virginia and southward through the Florida Peninsula on Wednesday.
The greatest threat from the storms will be from damaging wind gusts, hail and flash flooding.
"A few tornadoes will still be possible on Wednesday," AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions Storm Warning Meteorologist Alex Avalos said. "The tornado threat should be confined to more of eastern North Carolina and the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia during Wednesday."
The severe weather risk will extend northward to Washington, D.C., and Baltimore Wednesday evening.
Farther northeast, a band of drenching rain with strong winds at the coast will push through the rest of the I-95 corridor in the Northeast Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
People in the alerted areas will need to monitor the weather closely for rapidly changing conditions and have a plan of action should severe weather strike the local area.
Even in the absence of severe weather, residents are reminded to seek shelter as soon as thunder is heard. Stay ahead of violent thunderstorms with AccuWeather MinuteCast®.
The passage of a cold front will sweep away the severe weather danger and open the door for drier, less volatile air to filter later in the week.
KENNER, La. (AP) — Tornadoes and severe weather ripped through southern Louisiana and Mississippi on Tuesday, mangling trailers at an RV park, ripping off roofs from buildings and killing at least three people in both states, authorities said.
One of the most hard-hit areas appeared to be a recreational vehicle park in the town of Convent, in southern Louisiana. Two people were killed there, said St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin, speaking on local television. Authorities were still looking for people believed to be trapped under the debris, Martin said.
Thirty people were injured, and seven of them were in critical condition, he said.
"We never had anything like this; we never had this many people injured in one event, and so much destruction in one event," Martin told WVUE news. "We won't stop searching until we're satisfied we've searched every pile."
In Mississippi, officials are still sorting through reports of damage to some buildings, but Vann Byrd of the Lamar County Emergency Management Agency said one person died in a mobile home west of Purvis.
The reported tornadoes are part of a line of severe weather and storms that has ripped through the region.
At least seven tornadoes hit southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, said Ken Graham, the meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service's southeast Louisiana office.
More dead in Deep South flooding; water levels to rise
By Amy R. Connolly | Updated March 13, 2016 at 12:51 PM
HATTIESBURG , Miss., March 13 (UPI) -- Parts of the Deep South are bracing for more rain Sunday and flooding later this week after six people died in historic flooding that has also destroyed homes and washed out roads.
At least three people died in Louisiana, one in Texas and one in Oklahoma. Two fishermen were reported missing in Mississippi. More than 24 inches of rain has fallen in some of the hardest-hit areas of Mississippi, Louisiana and Oklahoma.
Mississippi officials said 95 homes have major damage and nearly 300 have minor damage in 41 counties. The flooding is the worst since 2012, when Hurricane Issac dumped more than 24 inches of rain in the area.
In Louisiana, the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness said nearly 5,000 homes have been damaged by flooding. Thousands have been forced from their homes.
"Our first goal is to help our local partners through the response phase of this event," GOHSEP Director James Waskom said. "We will begin to transition into the recovery phase as conditions improve. We have been working with [Federal Emergency Management Agency] for the past several days in an effort to streamline the disaster assessment process that will ultimately determine what level of federal support will be available for individuals, parishes and state agencies dealing with flood."
Forecasters said the nasty weather will continue Sunday through the Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas areas, with the possibility of large hail, strong winds and tornadoes late Sunday.
The National Weather Service said the flooding won't end for days. The Big SunFlower River, a main tributary of the Yazoo River in Mississippi, is expected to crest at 28.5 feet on Wednesday.
Never Before Has America Been Hit By So Many Historic Floods In Such a Short Period Of Time
By Michael Snyder, on March 11th, 2016
The United States has been hit by seven historic floods since the month of September, and the latest one is making headlines all over the planet. This week, nearly two feet of rain triggered record-setting flooding in parts of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and more rain is expected for the area as we move into the weekend. Flooding along one part of the Sabine River has already broken the previous record by more than five feet, and this crisis is far from over. Of course this just continues a trend that I have been documenting for months now. Never before in U.S. history have we ever seen so many historic floods in such a compressed time frame.
The area right along the Texas/Louisiana border is a complete and total disaster right now. The following report about what the region is currently experiencing comes from weather.com…
This multi-day heavy rain saga, which has dumped up to almost two feet of rain in parts of the South, is still triggering destructive flash flooding, and has driven or will drive some rivers to historic levels in the days ahead.
Record flooding is already occurring along a stretch of the Sabine River, and will move downstream into next week along the Texas/Louisiana border, due to record releases from Toledo Bend Reservoir, first put in service in 1966.
The river already crushed a previous record crest near Burkeville, Texas by over 5 feet, and that crest is headed downstream for the town of Deweyville, Texas, where it may top the previous unofficial record crest from 1884 by over a foot, flooding numerous homes and leaving the town isolated.
Let us pray for the people living down there, because what is happening is absolutely tragic.
Unfortunately, this is just the latest in a series of historic floods that we have witnessed over the past six months.
October: Hurricane Joaquin never makes landfall, but it tracks up the east coast of the United States causing nightmarish rainfall and flooding all over the eastern seaboard. Things were particularly bad in South Carolina, where the governor declared that it was the worst rainfall that many areas of her state had seen in 1,000 years.
October: Violent storms in southern California caused flash flooding that buried some highways in “rivers of mud” that were up to six feet deep. Hundreds of vehicles got buried in the fast moving mud, and the lifeless body of one man that had his vehicle completely buried by several feet of mud was recovered only after a few days had passed because that is how long it took emergency workers to dig him out.
October: Hurricane Patricia was the second most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded in the entire world, and remnants from that storm caused absolutely horrible flooding in some parts of Texas. The flood waters were moving so fast at one point that a freight train was actually knocked entirely off the tracks.
November-December: A “conveyor belt” of violent storms barreled into coastal areas of Oregon and Washington causing nightmarish flooding in many areas. The resulting landslides and floods made headlines all over the country, and it is going to be a long time before the region fully recovers. In early December we witnessed the wettest day in the history of Portland, Oregon, and things were also extremely bad at that time up in the Seattle area.
January: The middle part of the country experienced record-breaking flooding as the calendar rolled over from 2015 to 2016. The only thing that people could really compare it to was the great flood of 1993, and Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said that some communities saw floodwaters get to “places they’ve never been before”. Normally, if the middle of the country is going to see flooding like this it is going to take place when the snow begins to thaw in the spring. For something like this to happen in the middle of the winter was absolutely unprecedented.
January: On January 22nd, one of the worst east coast blizzards in history slammed into Washington D.C., New York City and other major metropolitan areas. More than three feet of snow was dumped on some areas, hundreds of thousands of people were left without power, and coastal cities all long the eastern seaboard experienced flooding that was described as “worse than Hurricane Sandy“. It is also interesting to note that this storm was known as “Jonas”, which is actually a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name “Jonah”. Jonah, of course, was a Hebrew prophet that was sent to the capital city of Assyria (Ninevah) to warn that the judgment of God was coming. Well, it turns out that this storm called Jonas also hit our capital city (Washington D.C.) on the exact anniversary of Roe v. Wade and in the exact location where Roe v. Wade was decided.
All of these historic floods have hit America since the end of September, and now we can add these new floods in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi to the list.
Never before in all of U.S. history have we ever seen a series of catastrophic floods like this within such a concentrated space of time.
Why is this happening?
Is this just some sort of bizarre coincidence?
Are we looking at the effects of climate change or shifting weather patterns?
Could it be possible that what we are watching is actually the judgment of God as some are suggesting?
The United States has never seen anything like this before.
Clearly something is happening.
So what do you think that “something” is?

MAJOR FLOOD WARNING, DAM BREAK LOUISIANA TODAY
Holy Oak is dying
July 1, 2016 - The Holy Oak, the oldest white oak tree in the US, is mysteriously dying, and nobody knows why. Before Columbus, before Gutenberg invented the printing press, there grew a great oak tree in New Jersey. The oak was already old when farmers built a church beside it in 1717. In 1740, evangelists preached beneath the tree, the tree shaded the graves of 35 veterans of the revolution. Through war and natural disaster, the tree survived.
Molten carbon discovered under USA
Feb 17, 2017 - Scientists have discovered a huge reservoir of molten carbon deep beneath the western U.S. The deep-Earth area of melting carbon that spans almost 695,000 square miles.
The reservoir is 217 miles below the Earth’s surface.
Earth contains much more carbon than was previously thought.
Its from all the life wiped out in the Noahic flood of Genesis 6.
Thank you for this. Very interesting.
Humpback whales behaving strangely
Mar 19, 2017 - Humpback whales are suddenly hanging out in large groups and scientists are trying to figure out why. Their meet-up spot is far from the Antarctic where humpback whales usually summer. They observed the whales during October and November, which are spring-summer months in South Africa.
