20 MILLION TONS OF DEBRIS
By Neil Verwey, long-time missionary in Japan:
Up to 20 million tons of tsunami debris floating from Japan could arrive on Hawaii's shores as early as 2013 according to estimates by the University of Hawaii.
Jan Hafner, a scientific computer programmer, told The Associated Press that the research projections show the debris would reach the coasts of Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Canada by 2014.
The field of debris is spread out across an area that's roughly 2,000 miles long and 1,000 miles wide.
The magnitude-9.0 earthquake produced the sort of devastation Japan hadn't seen since World War II, leaving more than 21,000 dead or injured. The tsunami that followed engulfed the northeast and wiped out entire towns.
The waves inundated the Fukushima plant, triggering the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. However, it's highly unlikely that the tsunami-generated debris is contaminated with radioactive material.
“We are trying to get across our message that the debris is coming and it's about time to start planning some action,” Hafner said.
There is something more crucial than 20 tons of debris to prepare for!
For in the days before the flood,
people were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage,
up to the day Noah entered the ark;
and they knew nothing about what would happen
until the flood came and took them all away.
That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
Therefore keep watch,
because you do not know on what day
your Lord will come
(Matt. 24:38-42, NIV).
The return of the Son of God is imminent!
Are you eager and ready to welcome Him, the Creator of the universe, with open arms?
