That is similar to what happened with the 2011 Japan earthquake that lead to the tsunami, and lead then the meltdown of nuclear power plants, killing thousands of Japanese, and sending hundreds of thousands on an evacuation out of the area.
ASSOCIATE PRESS (5/8/11) - More evacuations in Memphis; city waits on river
For example, if you live in a flood zone, it is a smart idea to have a boat on hand, tied to your property, as well as emergency supplies stored in an upper area of your home.
People impacted by the 2011 Mississippi River flood may look back with regret that they did not heed early news reports about a coming flood, and failed to stock up on emergency supplies, specifically a boat.
What if the flood isn't that bad? Well, there's a good chance that can happen also. My point with this article is that we had better start being prepared for natural disasters in growing magnitude, if in fact we're in the end times as prophesied in the Bible.
Being prepared for disaster before hand may be a wise move for most of the population.
Plenty of rope, life vests, and water proof storage containers could be essential to have on hand as emergency supplies for surviving a flood.
Even better though would be to consider an early evacuation. This would involve taking an assessment of the proximity of your town to the Mississippi River and then the location of your home in relation to the elevation of roads, and highways that provide access out of town.
If you live in a city with a lot of people -- for example New Orleans -- which could easily be impacted by flooding from the Mississippi River should the levees fail, then even if you were confident that you could take roads and highways out of the city you might run into a never-ending crawl of cars, as hundreds of thousands of people decide to evacuate on short notice.

We will have to wait and see.
Are you noticing that the world of radical Islam in much of the Middle East is in a state of growing unrest?
Do you see the pride, and greed, sexual immorality, and hate that is so rampant in the world?
I and many Christians believe that the "end times" are beginning to take place, as warned about in the Bible, and specifically in the last chapter, the Book of Revelation.
Jesus promises to save his followers from a coming time of great sorrow and death when God finally begins unleashing his wrath on a growing scale on the massive evil in the world and the overall wickedness of the governments of man.
Put your faith in Jesus today, and repent from your sin to follow the commandments of God. The time for the present age of the world is growing short. Be saved from the wrath of God.
Could we be ten years from the end?
Or twenty years?
Or only two years?
The Bible leaves that a mystery, despite all the warnings you may have heard about a May 21, 2011 Judgment Day that have been reported by a Christian "cult" (by the way, any Christian cult is not actually a true Christian).
Disasters may be taking place at that time, such as a Mississippi River flood in 2011 that may prove to be the largest flood in U.S. history (as early reports are warning), but that is not likely to be "Judgment Day". Jesus said "no man knows the day or the hour...". (By the way, in the Bible "judgment day" is not actually used as a phrase. However, the "Day of the Lord" and signals not only the beginning of God's wrath but also his coming for his people, who follow him in truth and in spirit, reflected in a life of love for God and Jesus Christ.
Get your heart right with the Lord today. Pick up your Bible, read it and believe what it says. Be filled with the Holy Spirit as you finally surrender your life to Jesus and receive the gift of eternal life and a place in the Kingdom of Heaven.
