MARIA–ANOTHER MAJOR HURRICANE!!

 

Hello Heart 4 Children Ministries Family, hope you are having a good week. While we thought that Jose was going to be the next big tropical weather maker, Maria stepped up and strengthened quite rapidly. Maria is the third major hurricane–after Harvey and Irma– to make landfall in just 18 days!!  (Below info credit to John Kassell Independent Meteorologist) https://www.facebook.com/JohnKassellWX

 

Latest NHC advisory has Maria remaining a powerful Category 4/5 storm making landfall in southeast Puerto Rico. At this point, it does not even matter where in PR Maria makes landfall. A very serious, life-threatening situation to come for PR. Maria could be the most destructive hurricane in Puerto Rico’s history.

Hurricane Maria made landfall on Dominica in the Caribbean last night and is on track to hit St. Croix (one of the U.S. Virgin Islands) just 10 days after Hurricane Irma devastated the VI. Then on to make a direct hit on Puerto Rico. (Info credit to John Kassell) Below is the latest post from John.

“Recent recon data as of 2:15 PM shows that Maria has continued to strengthen, now packing wind speeds of 165 mph. With less than 24 hours until Maria makes landfall in PR, it cannot be stressed enough how catastrophic Maria will be on Puerto Rico.”


Please join us in praying for all those in the path of Hurricane Maria, as well as those who are now working to recover from both Hurricane Harvey as well as Hurricane Irma. Oh Lord we ask You to have mercy on those in the path of Maria and protect them from her horrific winds and waves. Please continue to be with those recovering from Harvey and Irma. We’ll be sure to give You the praise and glory in Jesus’ name amen. Blessings ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Teaml

We Remember the April 26, 1991 Tornadoes in OK and KS

Oologah tornado damage 1991

Tornado damage from Oolagah, OK tornado 4.26.91

On this day in 1991 my husband, Russell Hulstine, was at the Copan Handi Mart that night…he ran inside to warn a woman working there that the tornado was almost there…then he headed to Oolagah, OK…

Andover, KS tornado damage 4.26.91

Andover, KS tornado damage 4.26.91

 

His cousins who lived in a mobile home in Andover, KS got out in time, thank the Lord, before a tornado leveled the mobile home Park of 300. Scary day. Thankful Russell wasn’t killed  in Copan as the tornado hit the Copan Hand Mart while he was still in the parking lot!!!
