Massive Winter Storm Paralyzes US states

by Wellesley



I woke up to the sad news that many north eastern US states, included New York and Washington were battered by a major snowstorm.


AP news reported that the storm dumped as much as 3 feet of snow on the eastern United States raising flood waters in communities up and down the Atlantic Coast Saturday, closing roads and prompting evacuations.

From what I learned over 19 people have been confirmed dead from weather related incidents.

"Thirteen people were killed in from car crashes in Arkansas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia on Saturday. One person died in Maryland and three in New York City while shoveling snow. Two died of hypothermia in Virginia, officials said." Rueters.

We believe were are experiencing a tail (if you will) in sections of Jamaica, as it is much cooler (70-75 F) with intermittent showers, and has been like that for the last couple of days. But we have a lot to be thankful for.

On behalf of all Jamaicans, I just want to extend our moral support to the people of the US who are impacted, especially those who are ardent Jamaican enthusiast.

Remember my peeps, keep the faith... "This too shall pass".

Natural Disaster NEW
by: Anonymous

Our prayers goes out to all the States affected by the snow and rain, and especially to the families of those who lost loved ones. Unfortunately things will get worse as we enter into the last days.Our GOD is Awesome in power and mercy, and it is a wake up call for people to seek GOD, it is not GOD's will that any should perish, but we all have free will to choose Life or death, Blessings or curseings on our lives.
The Lord is warning people to get into the Ark of protection, where ever we may be, HE is no respector of persons. HE is warning of an impending Tsunami to hit the east coast shortly, check out www.thelordshour.com its a radio programme.
Shalom

what do?
by: Anonymous

Nothing to do against natural disaster only hope nobody injured, nobody died and give deepest compassion to every body. And ask only one question : why make war, not enough disaster like it, not enough misery ?

Thank you
by: Crystal from Pa

Thank you for your thoughtful concerns. I am in Pennsylvania where we for 30 or more inches. The largest snowfall in history. Thankfully many listened and stayed home. We are safe and roads are beginning to get cleared and sure we will all be back to normal soon. Just pray it doesn't melt quickly. Thank you for thinking of us.

Cabin fever
by: Joyce

Here I am in Central Virginia locked in my home since Friday about 10:00 a.m. until now 5:35 Sunday, and will be in until the city is able to clear the roads so that the person who will help me in removing the snow is able to get out of his house to come and help me. It is moments like these when I miss my birth country of warmth.

However, the snow on the ground is one of the most beautiful sights to look at (which I do through my kitchen window) untouched and peaceful - but cold. It reminds of the hymn "Whiter than Snow."

Thank you for your concern and kind words for us here. I live in the south (Tennessee & Missouri) and this kind of weather is difficult on us. Up north and Eastern they can handle it a little better. Again thanks and as always continue to pray for us through this winter season.
