MANILA, Sept 25 (Reuters) – Philippine authorities started evacuating people from coastal areas on Sunday and hundreds were unable to travel by sea as the main island Luzon, including Manila, braces for a category 3 typhoon that continues to strengthen, officials said.
Typhoon Noru became a supertyphoon “after a period of explosive intensification”, with sustained winds increasing to 185 km (115 miles) per hour from 120 kph on Saturday evening, the disaster agency said in an advisory.
It will continue intensifying and may make landfall on Sunday afternoon or evening with 185 to 205 kph (115 to 127 mph) of sustained winds, it said.
“I asked our mayors to comply with strict preemptive evacuations,” Helen Tan, governor of Quezon province, told DZRH radio station. Fishermen in coastal communities were barred from heading to sea, she said.
Noru, the 11th tropical cyclone to hit the Philippines this year, will bring heavy to torrential rains over the capital region and nearby provinces on Sunday afternoon.
HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuba’s electrical grid collapsed late on Tuesday, leaving the entire country without power shortly after the passage of Hurricane Ian, which ravaged the western end of the island with violent winds and flooding.
Lázaro Guerra, Technical Director of the Electric Union of Cuba, said a failure in the national electric system, in part associated with the storm, had affected infrastructure, state-run media reported.
Guerra said the union would work through the night and early Wednesday to restore power.

This prophecy tells about out of control, unpredictable, powerful, devastating, and often massive storms and severe weather that will wreck havoc on the Earth. Some of the predictions of events that will occur because of this wild, rampant, out of control weather are a Super (Cat 6) Hurricane, thunderstorms with Softball and larger sized hail that do massive damage, a wild, out of control, and completely unpredictable jet stream, storms dumping 3ft+ of snow in 6 hours or less (ie, super blizzard), rainfall totals of 24 inches in 24 hours or less from non-hurricane, non-tropical super cell thunderstorms, and Super (F6) Tornadoes with winds exceeding 350mph.
A lightning strike at an outdoors educator course in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming killed one student and injured another, officials said Thursday. The announcement came on the same day that a lightning strike killed two people and critically injured two others in Washington, D.C.
The group with the National Outdoor Leadership School was just days into their trip and had set up camp near Enos Lake, south of Yellowstone National Park, when a thunderstorm moved into the area Tuesday evening.
John D. Murphy, 22, of Boston, died of cardiac arrest because of the lightning strike, Teton County Coroner Brent Blue said Thursday. Blue did not know if the lightning struck Murphy directly or passed through something else to him.
The United States is bracing itself for another heatwave today, with more than 100 million Americans under severe weather warnings as temperatures are expected to soar to 113 Fahrenheit in parts of Texas and Oklahoma.
Nearly 20 percent of the US population, around 60 million people, are expected to see the dials rise above 100 degrees in the coming week, while the National Weather Service has also warned of thunderstorms and large hail.
In a statement on Monday, the Weather Prediction Center said: ‘Dangerous heat will continue to impact much of the central and parts of southwestern US today,’ where much of the region is experiencing extreme droughts.
And in the southeast, extreme heat will combine with humidity to raise the heat indexes above 100 degrees.
New York City, meanwhile, could see the longest heatwave in nearly a decade, according to Accuweather, with seven straight days of highs in the 90s or above. The last time that happened was in 2013.
The Big Apple’s energy company, Con Edison, is now advising residents to limit their energy use to avoid blackouts, and many New Yorkers were spotted Tuesday trying to cool off.
The general gist of this prophecy is that a series of extreme weather events will be occurring that will shake the world, and will be both a sign of your enemy’s (ie, Satan and his minions) destruction, and his setting aside for a time in preparation for his setting aside for a time just prior to his release during the Tribulation period. This prophecy is also a companion to the Chaotic Out Of Control Weather bible prophecy, but with more specificity, and a more focused window of time, and impact. So, where the chaotic weather bible prophecy is broader, and more generalized, this one is more focused and specific. It is also a companion to the Atlantic Ocean Super Storms modern prophecy as well.
