CALBUCO VOLCANO ERUPTION
Chile’s Calbuco volcano erupted last week, causing two earthquakes, a mass fish die off and a significant amount of ash, closing borders to the region.
Calbuco first erupted on April 22, marking the first eruption in more than 42 years. A second, more powerful eruption, hit around 1 am Thursday (April 23), creating swarms of lightning storms, reported the Los Angeles Times.
Chile’s President Bachelet declared a state of emergency. The ash fall is toxic, containing arsenic, and the government is issuing a health alert and face masks to residents.
The Associated Press reported volcanic ash reached the Argentine resort city of Bariloche, 68 miles east of Calbuco.
Update: 6,000 residents were evacuated again Tuesday, April 28, in anticipation that the volcano is preparing to erupt again. Cattle were transported out of the area last week due to heavy ash fallout. The milk industry will be severely affected, according to the National Agriculture Society.
With bee die-offs (pollination provides about one-third of our food supply), fish die offs, bird flu killing mass numbers of chickens and other fowl throughout the world, and natural disasters affecting food production, we are rapidly heading toward global famines, which Jesus and the prophets foretold concerning the last days,
“Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places” Matthew 24:7.
The Word of God describes these types of natural disasters in the last days,
“I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath, blood, fire and vapor of smoke” Acts 2:19.
John the Revelator saw visions of what would occur during the great tribulation,
“The heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together and every mountain and island were moved out of their places” Revelation 6:14.
These catastrophic events may occur supernaturally, or by some natural disaster, such as volcanic eruptions. One thing is certain, the Word of God is true.
