Water and fire will give the earth's globe convulsions and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up mountains, cities, etc...Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Laura to unleash devastating blow to Gulf Coast as major hurricane
Hurricane Laura continued intensifying by the hour overnight and Wednesday morning, becoming the first major hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season. As the storm begins bearing down on the United States, scattering nearly 600,000 residents from coastal communities around Texas and Louisiana, experts are warning of the potentially devastating storm surge and destructive winds that Laura’s wrath may pack.
After being upgraded from a Tropical Storm to a Category 1 hurricane on Tuesday, Laura’s strength grew rapidly from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning as it now packs 125-mph winds, and is a Category 3 storm. The eye of Laura was 235 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas, as of 10 a.m. CDT, Wednesday, and was moving northwest at 16 mph.
Forecasters expect Laura to make landfall near the Texas-Louisiana border as a Category 3 hurricane, but is expected to reach Category 4 strength (winds of 130 to 156 mph) -- and perhaps even Category 5 strength (wind speeds of 157 mph or greater) -- for a time as it moves over bath warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico. It is then predicted to weaken slightly back to a Category 3 storm just before landfall late Wednesday night. Source
“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie
“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie
“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
