Even atheists and nonbelievers will find (what they would call) certain “coincidences” a bit alarming in the world today. For instance, the Bible speaks of “wars and rumors of wars.” Check. The prophecies predict that parents will be dishonored by their offspring and that self-gratification will replace God himself. Check, again. The Christian holy book even speaks of earthquakes and natural disasters “in diverse places.”
For proof of that last prognostication, let us contemplate the “one, two” punch that is coming America’s way as Hurricane Harvey sets to depart the U.S. state of Texas only for tropical storm Irma to be rapidly “strengthening into a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph sustained winds,” as Fox News reports.
The National Hurricane Center has said that Irma is forecasted to be “extremely dangerous” and is currently “located over the Atlantic Ocean, about 650 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, moving west-northwest at 10 mph.” To make matters direr, this tropical storm is thought to be headed for hurricane status.

Irma, we are told, is to become a “Category 3 with sustained winds between 111 to 129 mph, by Thursday night (tonight).” At this time, no one knows if it will hit “The the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico,” the latter of which is already in economic misery and has been for quite some time.
“What we do know is that it will be an exceptionally strong hurricane, and all interest across the Lesser Antilles/Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba and the U.S — both Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast — need to monitor Irma’s path,” said Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.
America proper should not get its blast from Irma for 10 to 11 days according to the data collected. Within the next week, as the storm beats across the Atlantic Ocean, forecasters should have a better fix of Irma’s raging path.

So far, the storm does “not pose an immediate threat to land,” and thankfully, “there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.”
At this point, the story seems to be saying “hurry up and wait.” After what Americans have been seeing in Texas, citizens are going to be pre-programmed to panic as soon as Irma starts to drizzle. That is not the answer, however.
Ten to eleven days is ample time to buy (or even order online if done NOW) water, food, first aid kits, stockpiles of needed medicines etc.
Panic solves nothing. Preparation saves lives and property.
