Christian doommongers in the US claim to have seen visions of Houston, Texas, burning after being pounded by terrible storms.
The religious conspiracy theorists claim their visions mean Houston could feel the force of Hurricane Irma and another as yet unknown storm. Storm Lydia is right behind Irma, weather forecasts show.
Weather experts have forecast Irma will reach the tip of Florida by the Gulf of Mexico, which is around 600 miles from Houston as the crow flies.
However, according to conspiracy theory website beforeitsnews.com, there have been premonitions of not only terrible flooding, but also storms in Houston in September.
Self-styled seer Pamela Banda says in August 2016 she first published a blog talking about a vision she had of Houston in may that year.
She said it indicated that two floods and two storms would hit the city.
Ms Banda said that while praying she “instantly saw a vision”.
She wrote: “I suddenly found myself up in the air in the city of Houston.”
Four gas tanks were on fire and the flames spread to an apartment bock, which collapsed, she claimed.
She added: “Then out of the corner of my right eye I saw a wave of water that looked around five feet high from where I was up in the air.
“So it was not as tall as the buildings, but enough to cause severe damage.
“The water was destroying everything in sight.
“Cars were being flipped over and everything was catching on fire.
“When the winds came it moved me in the air and that was when I began to panic because until then I thought I was only seeing a vision.”
However, Ms Banda gave no hint of a date for when it would happen after her “vision.”
“Prophet” Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, the founder of Jesus Ministries, had a 2015 prophecy of the destruction of Houston, according to beefiestnews.com.
He wrote then: “When we landed at Houston airport, we came out of the plane and we walked on the bridge.
“As soon as I stepped foot on Houston Airport, I heard the voice.
“I think this angel followed me. He said, ‘This city will be destroyed by a massive flood’.”
Again no date of when it would happen was given.
Brother Billy Nelson was the first to predict the events, according to James Baily of Z3news.com.
Mr Baily said: “Exactly eight years ago, on August 30 2009, Brother Billy Nelson had a prophetic dream in which he saw great destruction in Houston.”
Mr Nelson wrote in 2009 that while on a cruise ship he “looked out over the water and saw massive amounts of debris coming into the waterway.”
He said: “I saw pieces of rooftops, houses, and all manner of trash floating in the water.
“It was the leading edge of incredible amounts of fragments of what used to be homes and businesses.”
Mr Nelson claimed God warned him ‘when you see this it has begun’.
Mr Baily said: “What has begun? Billy understood it was a confirmation of many other prophetic warnings God had already given him regarding judgment coming to the United States.
“What Brother Billy saw in his dream is happening today as he is currently on a cruise ship near Houston, stranded with 20,000 other passengers.”
Mr Nelson claimed to have a second vision on September 15 2009.
He said at the time: “In the vision, I was observing from a high altitude.
“I saw the Houston, Galveston coastline below.
“A very weak unnamed storm was brewing just off shore.
“Then it suddenly intensified and became a very large black storm like no one had ever seen.
”The storm moved inland in a large black mass and engulfed the city of Houston and surrounding area.
“Soon afterwards the storm withdrew, it drug back a massive amount of debris as it returned to sea.”
Mr Baily said: “The year was marked out, so it was not revealed, but the month was revealed as September.
“Putting Billy’s vision together with what Pamela saw, a second storm will bring more flooding and strong winds to the Houston area and its’ destruction will be greater than the first because Pamela saw ‘everything catching on fire’ and Billy saw, ‘It drug back a massive amount of debris as it returned to sea.’
“Even though the first storm has already landed, we have not been shown how much time passes before the second one hits.
“Perhaps the area will be granted a reprieve.”
Fortunately for us many people have predicted the end of the world on many occasions and all have come and passed without incident.
