Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as what Gov. Rick Scott called, ‚Äúthe worst storm that our Florida Panhandle has seen in a century.‚ÄĚ Packing maximum sustained winds of 155 miles an hour, the storm rolled ashore midday and pummeled the coast with rain, wind and storm surges.
Photographers Gabriella Angotti-Jones, Scott McIntyre, Johnny Milano and Eric Thayer are on the ground in Florida covering the storm for The New York Times. We‚Äôll be updating this feed with their latest work over the next several days....
It just seems to me, that God keeps on cookin' up these whoppers of hurricanes. They just seem to get worse and worse, and bigger and bigger and badder and badder. Could it be God's punishment on this sinful nation to wake up the sinful??
Could Deuteronomy 28 apply?
Deuteronomy 28:20-21 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
The LORD shall make the PESTILENCE* cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.
