Links: | CNN | 1 | WKMG | Weather Links |August 1 (Day 214, Passover): Tropical Storm Alex was named today after it formed off the Florida coast yesterday. The formation of the storm was heralded two days ago with the image of a beast off central Florida. The beast resembled a bear or large cat, such as a tiger. The image of the beast corresponded to a 6-foot black bear that spent the day and part of the night July 30 in Longwood, Florida. A tiger escaped in New York City July 31, the day Alex was named Tropical Depression #1.
On July 30 terrorist threats were reported against financial institutions, such as the World Bank in Washington, DC, the Prudential Bank in Newark, New Jersey, and the Stock Exchange and Citigroup Building in New York. The projected path of Alex parallels the financial institutions that were threatened by terrorists (right top photo).
The name, Alex, means defender of men. The first Atlantic tropical storm of the year formed on August 1.

Tropical Storm Alex formed from the image of a beast, a tiger or bear, that corresponds to Baal. The storm formed in conjunction with the terrorist threat against US financial institutions on the east coast. The path of the storm parallels the locations of the financial institutions threatened.
A tropical storm represents rejection of the grace message of the pastor by the local congregation like the rebellious female who rejects the authority of her right man. Today cursing came to the churches in Iraq when terrorists bombed some of them.
