Pestilences And Earthquakes

•, By Michael

Just think of all the things we have seen in recent days.  There was the historic terror attack in Russia, then the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed, and then Israel's strike on a building right next to Iran's embassy in Damascus threatened to spark a major regional war.  Less than 24 hours ago, a catastrophic earthquake hit Taiwan, but that is already starting to fade from the news cycle because so much else is happening right now.

In this article, I want to focus on two things: pestilences and earthquakes.

The bird flu plague has already killed millions upon millions of birds all over the planet, but now it has made a major resurgence in the United States.

In fact, the largest egg producer in the U.S. is "temporarily" closing a facility in Texas due to a local outbreak

The largest producer of fresh eggs in the United States says it has temporarily closed one of its facilities in Texas after highly pathogenic avian influenza, otherwise known as H5N1 bird flu, wiped out nearly two million birds.

Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. said one of its facilities in Parmer County "tested positive for highly pathogenic avian influenza, resulting in depopulation of approximately 1.6 million laying hens and 337,000 pullets, or approximately 3.6% of the Company's total flock as of March 2, 2024."
