Houston Flooding Is The 8th Historic Flood To Hit America Since The End Of September

Houston Flooding - Public DomainWhy has the United States been hit by historic flood after historic flood in recent months?  The flooding that is pummeling the city of Houston is the 8th historic flood in this country since the end of September.  City officials down in Houston have labeled the flooding that is currently slamming the city “a life-threatening emergency“, and they are insisting that “Houston residents should avoid travel at all costs today.”  At this point, dozens of subdivisions have been flooded and major sections of Interstate 10 and Interstate 45 are under water near downtown.  Authorities are telling us that water is getting to areas that it has never been before, and Fire Department spokesman Jay Evans announced that the water is already 10 to 15 feet deep in some areas.  But even though some parts of Houston have already gotten close to 20 inches of rain within the last 24 hours, there is more rain in the forecast, so this crisis is far from over.


The giant storm that has caused all of this rain was a complete surprise to many residents of Houston.  A lot of people woke up on Monday morning to discover that their neighborhoods now resembled Waterworld.  The following comes from the Chicago Tribune

More than a foot of rain fell Monday in parts of Houston, submerging scores of subdivisions and several major interstate highways, forcing the closure of schools and knocking out power to thousands of residents who were urged to shelter in place.

Sylvester Turner, mayor of the nation’s fourth-largest city, told residents to stay home to fend off a weather system he called “stubborn.” More rain was projected over the next two to three days although heavy downpours had subsided somewhat by midday and only another half-inch was expected through Monday night, he said.

If this flooding was just an isolated incident, it wouldn’t really be that big of a deal.

But the truth is that this flooding in Houston continues a very disturbing pattern that began in early October of last year.

Since the end of September, the U.S. has been hit by 8 historic floods, which works out to an average of more than one a month.  For this article, I wanted to update a list of these historic floods that I started in a previous article

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 encased 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.

MarchAlmost two feet of rain triggered historic flooding in parts of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.  Flooding along one area of the Sabine River broke the previous record by more than five feet, and some sections of Interstate 10 were closed for four days.

Never before has the United States experienced so many historic floods in such a compressed period of time.

So why is this happening?

Some believe that “climate change” is responsible for these bizarre weather patterns, others are pointing the finger at El Nino, and yet others believe that this is a sign that we are approaching “the last days” described in the Bible.

What everybody should be able to agree on is that what we are witnessing is highly, highly unusual.

Historic floods have hit almost every region of the country since the end of September, and the economic damage that has been caused has been immense.

Hopefully we will get a break from all of this flooding soon, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    I saw some video of the flooding and people seemed surprised by the recent flooding. Why? No one told them? After recent flooding people thought it couldn’t happen again? Why not? What is wrong with people being so stupid and not paying attention?

    • Clarice

      I would like to know what the news in the flooded areas was reporting before the rain started. Did they predict this torrential rain which would inevitably lead to the present day flooding or were they blindsided?

  • K

    No doubt, there has been a lot of rain. This last Winter, we did not get near the snow we usually have. Instead we got days and days of rain. Now as high up in the mountains as I am. No flooding. But the sheer number of downed trees, was more than I have ever seen. Trees just uprooted from the massive amounts of rain. Other trees snapped, about 8 inches up from the ground. The wood just rotted out from the rains. I am friends with a couple of the local weathermen. They have never seen anything like this either. And one of them has been in this area,over 30 years.

    Golly, it’s like something is happening with the climate

    Wow.. God is getting angry… Maybe America should repent…

    You can’t have it both ways christians. Either you have free will and god does not interfere in your lives OR you have no free will and are at the mercy of your god’s whims, temper tantrums and the like.

    If you believe in free will you cannot believe that god is sending earthquakes and floods because he is upset.

    If you believe that he does control the weather then what does he do when he is happy? Nothing?

    Funny I never see god express his disdain over america and the genocide caused by the wars we have waged? Where was america’s punishment for the deaths during the civil war, WW I, WW II, the Vietnam war and on and on and on.

      Clarice, I gotta say I love the way you label a group as you “Christians”…like it’s just one big band of uniform people. Anyways, think of this way: does a child of a parent have free will? Can the child do what they want, within reason, and make their own choices throughout life? Do they gain more freedom and free will as they age? Sure they do. But as long as they live under the parents rules they really only have free will within set boundaries. So, would we then say they now don’t have free will? But what if they start hanging out with the wrong crowd and make poor choices, get in trouble with the law, does the parent always throw a fit and make a big physical statement? They had the free will and they made poor choices and sometimes have to pay for them with whatever the law deems. Despite free will, and a parents guide, free will still leads people to trouble.

      You seem to inply that God must cause all sorts of disasters just because America has become so anti-God. You will never see the punishment when you are narrow minded and expecting only earthquakes and natural disasters. Look at the social decline and morals and logic get thrown out the window and God is removed from the fabric of life. It’s like stepping out from underneath an umbrella, is it the umbrellas fault you get socked and are miserable? life gets worse the more we remove God and so when we get soaked with life you certainly can’t blame it on God!

    Michael, the best answer for all this is found in the book “The Israel Omen” by David Brennan.

    Good that the banksters of the Lord have their geo-/climateengineering technology.
    Good that there is this holy book a lot of people believe in.
    Good that the banksters have the ability and the intention to direct the history in every specific direction to fulfill certain scenarios written in old black books people believe in.
    Good that they know how to direct history since decades.

    But, hey, if someone explains me how created God and who created the creator of God and who created the of creator of the creator and so on … perhaps I become a believer like so many others and forget Rothschild’s geo-/climateengineering and their NWO dreams and a one world religion.

      You’re seeking knowledge. Knowledge is in the brain, not the spirit.
      God is spirit. If you want to know God, the answer is faith, not knowledge.

      “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
      – Hebrews 11:6

      • Akzent

        That’s exactly the point. I believe in spirit but I don’t believe in old guy with long white hair who created all like most people do I know.

          First prove there is no God. Please note that to prove an absolute negative is logically inconsistent. You would have to know everything there is to know in the universe to make that statement so the argument “to” a creator is easier to make. Just ask Hawkins, I quote, “what place then for a creator.” This statement he made should lead you to his argument. How about Hoyle (Cambridge Astronomer) and Wickramasinghe’s (Cardith mathematician) analysis in Evidence from Space. 10 to the 40th power we came from primordial soup. To put that in perspective they state there are only 10 to the 80th power of atoms in the universe –Use your deepest thinkers first friend. You will find the harder they try the more they prove the Bible.

          • Akzent

            We shoul define first what or who God actually is. I am a gnostic, I don’t believe in the old man with the beard but I cannot proof that he/it does not exist.
            So, the believers should say who/what God is – without telling something in the way of “you know it when you found out” – and proof the existence.

          • Be Still

            What God you chose to believe in is up to you. Free will is a wonderful and terrifying thing. I choose the God of the Bible for many, many reasons. One being it was a book written over 1500 years, on three continents, in three different langues, by 40 different authors and kept the same cohesive theme. How is that possible 1600 years before the printing press? If you want to know who God is He reveled Himself in the Bible. Front to back it gives us a deity that man can understand or choose not to understand. For me and all others it’s called Faith. It’s a tough cookie. I wish you well and hope you look objectively at the Bible. Your proof is in there and do what I did once. ‘Ok, God if your there prove it to me!!’ Don’t be afraid to ask God Himself that question.

          Maybe this will help –
          The Bible says that man is a three-fold being – Body, Soul and Spirit.
          The Body relates to the world, the physical realm.
          The Soul (mind, will, emotions – basically your personality) relates to knowledge/relationships.
          The Spirit relates to God, who is Spirit.

          When Adam sinned, his spirit died. All his descendants were born with a dead spirit. We inherited it from Adam. If we want to know God, our spirit must be reborn – born again. Without the new birth, it is impossible for you to know God.

          It’s not surprising that you don’t believe in the God of the Bible, because with a dead spirit, you cannot hear him. But if you choose to believe in him, he will see your faith and cause you to be born again.
          My advice to you is to not listen to your fallen, corrupt mind. The power of sin lives in the flesh and will point you away from God.
          Believe the Word of the Bible.

        Great point. As the writer of Hebrews states, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him…He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” The word “faith” does not have the meaning many associate with it.

        In the translated Hebrew OT “faith” only appears 2x, once in Deuteronomy 32:20 where God rebukes Israel for not having it and the second time in Hab. 2:4 which Paul quotes in Romans saying, “For the just shall live by faith”. The first part of Hab 2:4 is, “Behold, as for he proud one, his soul is not right within him…but the just shall live by faith.” Faith has always been about the question, since Adam and Eve, of whether one will submit to God’s authority or try to impose their own on God.

        Faith is not an “belief”, a mental assent to something, but rather is something believed that is lived out in a practical manner. It is an action. When the OT uses the words “hear” or “listen”, it is actually informing us of an action we are to obey, to exercise our “faith”.

        So what does this mean for our above friend? If one wants to know God, one must determine to obey God and then He will make His presence known to him. Once we decide to walk in obedience, the outworking of “faith” that He is and has authority in our lives, He will reward us with the understanding, an affirmation, that He indeed exists and has taken notice of our “faith”. We will have that reward as well as others! When we yeild to His authority, He reveals Himself in greater and greater measure!

      Ya know I went in a similar search many years ago and concluded there has to be a God, a creator. Here’s one small thing that really struck me: DNA is a code, and codes. Codes are created. In order for DNA to exist it is mathematically impossible for it to ‘just be’. It was created, there is no other explanation!? That’s only 1 of many things that got me thinking.

      I’d recommend you-tubing DR RAVI ZACCAHRIAS, he is a Cristian apologist and and answers many questions in a very gentle and loving way(unlike most of this website). This could be the most important knowledge you ever seek seeing as your eternal soul is on the line. Good luck and Gid bless friend!

    The US, EU, and all those countries world wide are under judgment because they are hell bent on splitting the GOD of Abraham, Issac and Jacob’s land. Yes, HIS Holy Word is plain that Jerusalem, Israel is HIS land and it is not to be split. Netanyahu needs to remember what happen to Sharon, after HE gave away Gaza; And what happen to Rabin who was planning to do the same thing.

    “On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates…” (Genesis 15:18 NIV).

    3And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis Ch 12, V3

      How many times some needs to repeat to bible thumpers that biblical Israel has nothing to do with present modern state with capitol in TelAviv

  • MaxRockatansky33

    It’s called El Nino. Bible thumpers in every disaster see work of “God”
