A LATE monsoon and Cyclone
Monica have combined to produce record rainfall figures for Darwin.
With three days to go until the end of April, there has
already been a record amount of rainfall in Darwin since records were
first kept 65 years ago, with 383mm recorded since April 1.
The previous April record of 357mm for Darwin was
recorded in 1953.
Almost 300mm of rain fell at Goat Island in the 24 hours to 9am yesterday. (Equals 667.5 days or half of said 1335 days.)
Adelaide River east recorded 225mm during the same
period, while 187mm fell at the Adelaide River post office.
The daily rainfall record for April in the Territory is
545mm at Roper Valley in 1963.
Weather bureau senior forecaster Sam Cleland said it was
unusual for the Territory to be hit with a late monsoon and an intense
cyclone in April.
"April is usually the transition month between the
Wet and the Dry," he said.
"We started the month with a late burst of
monsoonal activity that dumped a substantial amount of rainfall and topped
it up with an intense cyclone at the end."
The dry season starts on May 1.
"Now ex-Cyclone Monica is moving away from the
Territory the likelihood of rainfall should decrease," Mr Cleland
Ex-Cyclone Monica has weakened to a tropical low
centered around the Daly River and is expected to move into Western
Australia's Kimberley region in the next few days with the potential to
reintensify into a cyclone.
Cyclone Monica has spared Darwin and has weakened to a
tropical low, but may intensify again before menacing Western Australia.
Monica was packing winds of up to 350kph near its core
when it touched down on Monday night at Maningrida, in the far north of the
Northern Territory. (Equals the said 666 days.)
However, the former category five cyclone significantly
weakened once it made landfall.
The storm traveled further south and further inland than
predicted, sparing Darwin what had been feared would an even more
destructive storm than Cyclone Tracy that devastated the city in December
Darwin received rain and winds of up to 60kph as the
cyclone weakened from a category one to a tropical low at about 1pm (CST) on
Monica first made landfall along a peninsula in
neighboring Queensland state on April 19, damaging an estimated 15% of the
homes in the Lockhart River area before passing over the Gulf of Carpentaria
and re-intensifying, Australian weather officials said.
Queensland is still cleaning up from Cyclone Larry, which hit March 20,
causing an estimated A$350 million (US$261 million) in insured losses.
Insurance Australia Group Ltd. (ASX:IAG) is estimating its losses from
Cyclone Larry at between A$100 million and A$135 million (BestWire, April
24, 2006). (Note the 30 days between these two great tropical storms and the 30 days mentioned as from the 390th day of Ezekiel, etc., and the leap month. It works out to 30 + 630.5 days.)
"Brutus" the crocodile (which means,
"A stupid crocodile!")
See the crocodile story
that made headlines as they cleaned up from cyclone Monica! I understand
this as a God-given analogy. The tree meant to be cut at the top represents
the evolutionary tree in which it is claimed that man is the top of the tree
and that we are descended from the fish/crocodile lower down the
evolutionary tree. In the garden of Eden, the dragon (crocodile) (that is
Satan) reached to the top of this tree and caused man to fall. However, the
lie is that such a tree even exists, for in reality God made man, and man is
not the result of brute evolution as claimed by Charles Darwin, after whom
the spared city of Darwin was named.
Angry croc in chainsaw massacre
In a bizarre incident near Darwin
yesterday, a 4.4m saltwater crocodile named Brutus stood on its tail,
reached up a tree and snatched a chainsaw from a handyman...
"It was unbelievable," said the relieved
chainsaw operator, mining worker Fred Buckland. "It all happened so
The drama unfolded at about 9am at Corroboree Park Tavern,
80km southeast of Darwin, where several trees had blown over as a result of
wind from Cyclone Monica, which passed through the area early in the week.
One had fallen against a crocodile enclosure, where tourists come to see the
800kg beast known as Brutus.
Buckland, 47, went up the tree to cut the top off
with a chainsaw. Before long, the croc was reaching almost 5m up the tree.
"He was moving at a hundred mile an hour," Mr
Buckland said. "I wouldn't have thought something so big could move so
quick. I sacrificed my chainsaw. It was either that or me, so he got the
(The man jumped out of the tree to get away from the
this to the sign of antichrist that happed half-1290 days from the Balance

So-Called Missing-Link Fish Fossil Find (Posted April 7, 2006). Cyclone
Monica was half-1335 days, or 666 and/or 667.5 days. See '666' and the
antichrist connection of above article. (See Daniel 12.)
God spared the city of Darwin because He delights in mercy
and because no doubt people were praying. However, God warns that Darwinian
theory will one day bite fallen man (like a crocodile), that is, it will
bring due punishment like a great storm upon the inhabitants of the earth
for replacing the honor of the Creator and giving it to the
dragon/crocodile, who claims to be the storm-god. And the punishment will be
severe --- like the bite of a chainsaw --- for the haughtiness of man will
be cut down, and the top of the evolution-tree with it!
