Argentina Scrambles to Fight Biggest Plague of Locusts in 60 Years

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and Plagues

When society and infrastructure breaks down, things like disease takes hold and results in the deaths of many.  Such will be the case during the coming Tribulation period.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

Argentina Scrambles to Fight Biggest Plague of Locusts in 60 Years
Farmers and fumigators in Argentina are running out of time as they scramble to control the country’s worst plague of locusts in more than half a century, officials warned on Monday. The provincial authorities and Senasa, the government’s agricultural inspection agency, have intensified their efforts to exterminate swarms of the insects in the dry forests of northern Argentina. But their attempts might not be enough to prevent the locusts from developing into a flying throng in the coming days — when they will then threaten to devour crops like sunflowers and cotton, and grasslands for cattle grazing. “It’s the worst explosion in the last 60 years,” Diego Quiroga, the agriculture agency’s chief of vegetative protection, said in a telephone interview.

Swine flu OUTBREAK: 72 more deaths as killer disease continues its spread across Europe
An outbreak of swine flu has killed 72 more people and is putting thousands more lives in danger as the deadly virus continues to spread across Eastern Europe. Up to 40,000 people are expected to contract the disease in the Ukaine capital Kiev, where residents are covering their faces with masks or scarves. Schools have been closed for more than a week and some public gatherings have been banned as authorities struggle to head off the outbreak. The Ukrainian health ministry has confirmed 72 swine flu deaths, of which 47 were in the past week. The number of fatalities in areas of the Donetsk region held by pro-Russian rebels could be as high as 300, according to the intelligence service. The nasty virus has spread to many former Soviet countries, reaching epidemic levels in St Petersburg, Russia, where at least 30 people have died.
