    God is angry at sin. Repent and turn to Jesus before He comes back in the rapture to rescue those that are ready.

    This is the proof that shows that human being has destroyed the nature, but the nature has always took over

    As a child living in an island affected by cyclones more than half a century ago, we pulled together only by helping each other every time the hand of nature struck our homes down and left our crops ruined. Survival depends on communities helping each other in these very very dark days ahead and please help each other share what you have and prayers for your losses, lost relatives friends neighbours.

    I was just wondering why people would want to live at such a seemingly dangerous location, so close to the river and then realized that from the looks of it some of these towns that are now badly effected are over 1500 years old. And naturally in the middle ages it made perfect sense to build very close to a river. People need water every day and at that time every drop of water had to be carried in wooden buckets from the river, so you wanted to be as close as possible to the river. Some of the little villages that are now badly hit have houses that look like they were build in the middle ages.
    And of course no one who lives in a little town that has been around for such a long time expects a tiny river to turn into a wild stream within a few hours.

    0:51 …. "You can imagine this sort of thing happening in Asia but not here"…. Sorry this happened but what a classist, ignorant thing to say.
