Hurricane Matthew Hits Caribbean, Headed to U.S. Coast

Meteorologists tracking a massive hurricane, which has already blasted Haiti, Jamaica and other Caribbean countries,  are forecasting that the slow-moving weather system will track up the east coast of the United States by Thursday. Before it arrives, residents of the Bahamas are preparing for a direct hit by Hurricane Matthew, a massive, category 4 storm, currently centered over Haiti.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is providing the following information about the highways where lane reversals will be used as part of the coastal evacuation as Hurricane Matthew approaches the state:

· Hilton Head – One lane is reversed to create three lanes traveling west on US 278 at the intersection of the Spanish Wells Drive and Moss Creek Village Drive. This reversal is approximately two miles in length.

· Beaufort – US 21 is reversed to create three lanes at US 21 Business and continues until US 17.

· Charleston to Columbia – A full, four lane reversal on I-26 in Charleston begins at the interchange of I-26 and I-526. The full reversal continues west until the I-26 crossover to I-77 just outside Columbia in Lexington County.

· Horry County – Horry County has two, four lane reversals: 1) SC 544 to US 378 and 2) SC 22 (Conway Bypass) to SC 576 near Marion County.

Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall urges drivers on all highways to drive with extreme caution during hurricane conditions, particularly those using reversed lanes to evacuate the coastal areas. “The usual rules of the road are changed in reversed lanes. The reversals are designed to keep traffic flowing, however, traveling speeds will be slower than normal. Drivers need to pay extra attention while in reversed traffic,” said Hall.

    Now that we have satellite coverage of the world’s weather, we need to go back and rethink Gen. 1:31 where we read; ” And God saw every thing that he had made, and , behold it was very good.” It seems to me that is where theology comes in; that is to rightly divide for in Gen. Ch. 45 we see a severe famine that lasted 7 years. Eric Hoffer has pointed out that man’s great struggle over the centuries has been with the weather. There is still a lot of fuzzy thinking about extreme weather. Mant still believe that God is actively causing the weather patterns. But why would he pick on the poor people of Haiti so much seeing as how so many verses tell us that he has pity on the poor.

    Is this a meteorological event somehow connected to the Black Moon phenomenon?

    This weather event will make it very hard on the poor, in many cases it will set them back to the point where they will never be able to recoup and will die without even burial insurance. Meanwhile others will become rich in the rebuilding effort. Does this seem like something the Lord would orchestrate ?
