250 killed in deadliest Tornado outbreak in 40 years

Residents search through what is left of their homes in Pleasant Grove, just west of downtown Birmingham, Ala.

PLEASANT GROVE, Ala. – Dozens of massive tornadoes tore a town-flattening streak across the South, killing at least 250 people in six states and forcing rescuers to carry some survivors out on makeshift stretchers of splintered debris. Two of Alabama’s major cities were among the places devastated by the deadliest twister outbreak in nearly 40 years.

As day broke Thursday, people in hard-hit areas surveyed obliterated homes and debris-strewn streets. Some told of deadly winds whipping through within seconds of weather alerts broadcast during the storms Wednesday afternoon and evening

“It happened so fast it was unbelievable,” said Jerry Stewart, a 63-year-old retired firefighter who was picking through the remains of his son’s wrecked home in Pleasant Grove, a suburb of Birmingham. “They said the storm was in Tuscaloosa and it would be here in 15 minutes. And before I knew it, it was here.”

My Comment:

Having proved time and time again that His Word is the complete truth, Jesus Christ warned us that in the end days there will be terrible times, and signs in the sun, moon, stars, and on earth will occur.

Luke 21:25-26

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

We who believe in Him, have nothing to fear. For Our King is with us always. In His love for us, Jesus provided the signs to look for prior to his coming. The signs are all around us, and soon we will see our Messiah Jesus, coming with Great Power and Glory!

Luke 21: 27-28

At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
