  1. St John 3:16! 💞
    JESUS is RETURNING SOON! ALLELUIA! 🙏🙌
    "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
    Revelation 20:15!
    REPENT and RECEIVE JESUS as your LORD and SAVIOUR to have your name secured in His Book of Life!
    Time is winding up

  2. Some more erosion to areas where the sea walls are compromised. Those who had built housing too close to the shoreline paid a hefty price a few years ago as the integrity of the cliffs gave way to the surf and were swallowed up by the sea.Even after the engineers and inspectors went house to house, red tagging or condemning them, some wanted to tough it out and wait for that next big wave.Insane.

  3. I am glad our emergency services entities have a plan for these kinds of things. The sad truth is more people in Kalifornia will be inconvenienced by "Looky Loos" and traffic than the actual Tsunami.

  4. It’s soooo damn far away and somehow still results in tsunami advisory warning around the globe including continental USA.

  5. 3 north korea tests in less than a month, this could be a nuclear bomb, the water could be radioactive.

  6. Just a bit overreacting. The swell is big. The tsunami is teeny tiny speed bump.
    Oh let’s go see the bump.

  7. My friend just sent me a video of the surge in Tiburon which set a sailboat free. I wonder why the news hasn’t put anything up yet?
