A freak tornado cut through northeast London yesterday, destroying around a hundred homes and injuring half a dozen people. The weather this December has been quite extreme, with gusts of wind up to 70mph and torrential downpours hitting Northern Ireland and the mainland last week. The UK experiences around 30-40 tornadoes each year, but most occur in remote places and out at sea. I've only noticed within the last few years, tornadoes been witnessed in town centres. In August last year, the towns of Bristol and Birmingham were hit by tornadoes, in the space of a week. Looking back, these tornadoes coincided with the start of the disengagement from Gaza. After the disengagement, the US was of course hit by hurricane Katrina, killing thousands and leaving tens of thousands homeless. 

Quote: "About 100 homes in ten roads were damaged when the tornado tore through Kensal Rise yesterday morning. Six people were injured, with one man taken to hospital. Describing the latest episode of extreme weather in recent months, residents said that the sky turned black and a lightning strike and massive thunder clap occurred just before the tornado struck. Homeowners barely had time to lock their windows and shut doors before cars were blown across the street, tiles smashed windows and garage roofs peeled off like "lids on tins of baked beans". One shopkeeper described the tornado as "like the Wizard of Oz"...
"I remember thinking to myself that it was almost apocalyptic. It lasted about 20 seconds and I was frozen to my feet. I was shocked by what was happening and too frightened to move.

This particular tornado was apparently the closest ever to have occurred near BBC Television centre. So much so that a BBC cameraman who lived close by was able to grab his camera and record the scene of devastation shortly after it struck. Pity it didn't hit the building. Last night while I was watching the news, a reporter who was covering the story exclaimed, "What is happening with our weather?". My response to that would be, "What is happening with our country?". When a country has largely turned its back on God, legalizes homosexual marriage and its official church and academia persecutes Israel, is it really any wonder when things like freak weather and the scourge of Islamic terror starts hitting home? I believe the US isn't the only country to experience God's removal of His hand of protection.

Leviticus 26:14-17
But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant: I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

These verses seem to me to indicate that when a nation turns its back on God, it can only expect to have to deal with terrorism, our enemies gaining power over us and the need for security (ye shall flee when none pursueth you).
