When it comes to 'predicting things about the world', humans are as accurate as believers can be when it comes to predicting the 'timeline' regarding 'end times'--meaning not very.
Still, we like to think we can 'know'.
But the Lord tells us very explicitly:
The Demand for a Sign
1 The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.
2 He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ 3 and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.[a] 4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away. Mt 16:1-4 (NIV)
The passage above would tell us that while humans can glean the weather from various indicators, we are not to presume to understand God's 'Timeline' for us, plain and simple.
So let's stick here with what we have been blessed to reasonably understand from 'observation, data collection, analysis and interpretation', i.e. from 'science'...and let God 'speak to our hearts' on other matters!
The sun has been undergoing a week of instability. In fact, it is unusually 'active' and the energy thrown off by the sun is currently, meaning 'now', affecting the earth in profound ways.
These profound ways include the possibilities of severe weather with winds, rain, hail, tornadoes, lightning, thunder, mudslides, wildfires and the like.
The sun in it's instability is also generating a great deal of 'magnetic field energy' which manifests itself on and in the earth, as well as in 'space'.
See a graph of fluctuations on the earth's magnetic field (due to the current GEOMAGNETIC STORM we are experiencing) as a result of 'space weather' below.

Those of you who have been following along with my 'Tutorials' (click on this keyword below) realize that a solar situation such as this is a sure set-up for unstable earth weather.
And, unfortunately for those places like ARKANSAS which has been experiencing a great number of earthquakes recently, this is a time to be vigilant.
In OHIO and other 'flood areas', Geomagnetic storms only make matters worse.

Below is a 'visualization' of the intensity and direction of the energy from the sun hitting the earth.
update 6:00 PM http://www.visi.com/~brainiac/solar/aurora.shtml
Note that at this time as this is being published, the arrow indicating the direction this energy is 'taking' is currently directed towards the Northeast of the United States.
Shortly, it will be directed towards OHIO, thus intensifying whatever severe weather and geophysical events are occurring there.
I urge those in 'danger areas' to be aware of the dynamics in play here. Please get yourselves and your loved ones to safety, as needed.
Unfortunately, your local public safety officials will not necessarily be forthcoming with the information I am presenting here, if they have any access to it at all.
Also, there is a large group of 'thinkers' who do not yet recognize the correlation between GEOMAGNETIC STORMS, such as the one we are experiencing the effects of today, and 'everyday' earth weather and geophysical disturbances.
OHIO and ARKANSAS today in the U.S.A. should pay heed, as well as those all over the globe in problem areas.
For you in Christ
