Two Feet Of Rain In Louisiana Threaten To Cause Dam Failure

Luke 21:25,26 NAS “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay (tension from difficult circumstances that "won't move" which produces distress or anguish – causing someone to feel "locked in" or “tightly pressed”)  among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting (lose morale, become disheartened, like lapsing into temporary unconsciousness) from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world...

“I believe the earth itself is groaning (Rom. 8:19-22) in anticipation of the Lord’s return. Part of this groaning includes floods, volcanoes, tidal waves, hurricanes, and earthquakes.”

-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”

Over two feet of rain has fallen over New Orleans and Louisiana as the remnants of Hurricane Isaac move very slowly to the north. The continual heavy rain is causing massive flooding issues including threatening to cause a dam to fail.

An immediate evacuation of Kentwood, Louisiana was issued just before 2pm on Thursday due to the possible failure of the Lake Tangipahoa Dam. The dam is located just across the Mississippi/Louisiana border in McComb, Mississippi. Mayor Whitney Rawlings said it was a 50/50 chance the dam would fail.

“Lord only knows if this thing holds or not,” Rawlings told WLTV.

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal agreed to send busses to help with the evacuation. Between 50,000 and 60,000 people are being removed from an area within a half mile of each side of the Tangipahoa River.

A June news report stated the lake was to be drained so the dam and the spillway valve could be rebuilt.
