Port closed for months until wreckage is cleared as NTSB Board finds hazardous material leaking into the water

Baltimore-Bridge Stunning images show the mangled wreckage of the bridge hours after it was struck by the cargo ship very early on Tuesday morning

Revelation 13:16-18 “Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”
