Solomon Islands flash floods kill at least 19 people

Prophecy Sign:  Anomalous weather patterns

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke 21:25 NIV

Solomon Islands flash floods kill at least 19 people
Devastating flash floods in the Solomon Islands have killed at least 19 people, while 40 are still missing and an estimated 49,000 people are homeless. Entire riverside communities and bridges were washed away when the Matanikau river in Honiara broke its banks on Thursday. The government declared a state of emergency. Rivers in the north-west, central and north of the island also flooded, destroying homes and displacing communities. There are more than 5,500 people in three of the most populous of the 13 evacuation shelters in Honiara, where aid groups report dengue fever is threatening to spread.

Deadly Storms, Tornadoes Menace Southern States
At least two people are dead after thunderstorms and tornadoes rolled through the South on Monday, causing flash flooding and tearing a trail of destruction. One twister descended on a neighborhood in eastern North Carolina, sending more than a dozen people to the hospital. In its wake were snapped trees, overturned cars, and roofless homes. Meanwhile, in Baton Rouge, La., high winds swept through one community, leaving homes badly damaged. Also, in Mississippi, at least nine apparent tornadoes tore across the state, injuring close to a dozen people and damaging homes and one church. The storms triggered dangerous floodwaters.

Argentina floods force 2,000 people to flee homes
Heavy rain is not unusual in Argentina at this time of year. But inhabitants in the western province of Neuquen are experiencing their worst flooding in four decades, with severe disruption in several towns. At least 2,000 people in a number of Argentinian regions have had to flee their homes amid bad weather that has halted public transport and closed schools. No deaths have been reported so far. In April 2013, dozens of people were killed and hundreds left homeless in flash floods in Buenos Aires province. The capital has not been spared this year and was hit by a big electrical storm overnight.
