Not one thing. Because I so happen to know that God is in control of all the hurricanes, Tornadoes, floods, ect. Unless I hear from God to take cover I will not. I mean we don't want to test Him either or anything like that, you know what I mean?

If you saw a man trying to hold back the tide with his hands you would call him foolish. So does it follow that a person planning protection against the hurricane season would also be silly?

Living in Nevada! However I'm praying for those who could be affected by these terrible storms, especially my son who lives on the Gulf Coast of FLA.

Moderator - You mean that those 2006 hurricanes won't make it to Nevada this year :)

We just has flash floods yesterday from the reminants of Alberto here in North Carolina. We got 7 1/2" of rain!

In Arizona, hurricanes are the least of our worries.

Wildfires and drought, on the other hand....

Pray that when the monsoons start, we'll get rain--mildly and generously.

cont' I am blessed by the fact that usually by the time a hurricane gets as far north as I am it is dwindling to a bad rain storm with a big wind. Though we have been pelted at the Jersey shore just an hour away. I just keep candles and flashlights and bottled water on hand then.

My son lived on the Outer Banks for two summers. They weathered a few hurricanes wihtout even evacuating their island, but none as big as Katrina. He called me on his cell phone from a grocery store in the middle of one. The store was open for business in the middle of the hurricane.

Nellah-- I lived in Colorado for 60 yrs. They have always had tornados esp. in eastern CO. They have had entire towns leveled. It's nothing new.
I live on the Texas coast now.

Residents of hurricane prone areas know how to prepare. The refugees of Katrina that you saw on T.V. didn't evacuate or couldn't, but not because of ignorance. Many of them could have found a way out. And there are always those who refuse to leave homes or businesses, regardless. Worse, the N.O. disaster plan, including local shelters, was woefully inadequate. This was not a typical scenario (nor, with breached levees, a typical hurricane)

I see many signs of end times...mostly social and political. People have been speculating about odd weather events ever since I can remember. I have hurricane shutters on my house, portable lock boxes for my valuable papers, and if I evacuate, try to go before it's mandatory (avoid the traffic).I keep extra water, batteries and non-perishables for if I stay. There are days of warning for a hurricane.. not so with tornadoes and earthquakes. It's the cost of HO insurance that's disastrous!

I live in Jackson, Miss., we have tornadoes and on the coast hurricanes, but Katrina kicked our rear ends and we can't handle anything else like that. Being so far inland and hit with a category 1 storm was something else. After her, I will make preparations this year. What's spooky are tornadoes in Colorado and California.
---Nellah on 5/23/06

I agree with Mima (?) :)
The strange weather that has been occuring in the last couple of years is all part of the end times. Only thing as individuals we can do is, if you live in a coastal area, keep preperations close at hand and GET OUT when the authorities tell you to. Those of us living in tornado alley should know the survival tips well. Everybody that lives in the SanFrancisco Bay area or anywhere in FLA -should move! :)
---T.S. on 5/23/06

praying and fasting for those who will be effected, for the wisdom to know how to get out before they are struck and the strength to be able to withstand the effects of their houses being destroyed if they are.

Hurricanes and tornados, how do you people live under such a threat? 7,8,9 hurricanes a year in some areas! The numbers are frieghtening. Only numbers I need worry about are a 'fraction' of that; 4.5, 5.8, 7.9. 8.8.
---MikeM on 5/23/06

I am putting together a one month water, food and first aid supplies list of items. These hurricanes can be bad stuff if one is directly hit.
---Jimbo on 5/23/06

To Jack: I do live in tornado alley and I must say that some people are very silly in their preparations and in their fear. Do I take preparations against tornadoes? no! Do I take precautions against electrical wires? Only the fact that I don't intentionally grab them. Isn't this Christian net blog wonderful? I really like it.

What I get a kick out of is Mr. Pat Robertson said the Lord told him how many Hurricane would hit, and a Tidal wave would hit the northwest. He also added, "If I heard the Lord correctly." Thats what I call CYA!
---MikeM on 5/23/06

Mima, I think that if someone lives in a hurricane-prone area, sensible precautions would include plywood to protect the windows, an evacuation plan, and should evacuation not be possible, emergency supplies (food, meds, first aid kit, generator, drinking water, and such).

What do you think?
