    River and river valley runs right into the town. One guy is right saying more dams would of helped. Countries don’t have funds for everything.

    CNN – "How Libyans deal with lack of international help" – are you trying to guilt your viewers with a death count inflated by over seven thousand people? You answered you own question! They lie about how many people died to make up for the lack of international help, and your news organization were the ones who did they lying. You ran the original count of 11,300 on your website for several hours but the correction is barely visible, and you used videos like this to guilt people to give more. I've said it before and I'll say it again – CNN is the worst news organization on the planet.

    Where would 20,000 people go?In that amount of time it took to overtake those dams BS!If the dams werebuilt properly and resovoirs were created To handle any over flowObviously a sea wall needs to be built With a properly built dams Which could distribute overflow properly Do they have any man made lakes in Derna?Maybe that water could be redirected to one If they built a lake To handle any excess if rain THAT IS WHAT THIS RULER NEEDS TO DO❤

    I am from the suburbs of Derna. The cause of the disaster is the huge amount of water coming from the valleys in the Green Mountain extending to the first dam in Derna carrying a large amount of giant rocks and tree trunks and huge valleys that swept away everything towards the first dam. The first dam was subjected to a direct strike, then the water retreated back a distance of 500 meters, then returned to the dam with a second strike, with huge rocks being pulled from the mountains, which led to the destruction of the first dam. There is also a reason that the doors of the first dam were closed to relieve pressure, with a warning to open the doors, but no It is opened before the disaster. I have relatives who live near the first dam. Their farms and homes were completely swept away. Even the soil was swept away. Only rocks were left in the desert. The height of the water was 70 meters. Until the second dam was destroyed, all the houses went into the sea as they were, and there were cars with entire families in them. They tried to escape, but the water swept them into the sea. They could not. The saying there is a whole city under the sea now.

    (Daniel 9:27 was fulfilled in August 13 2023 also when the woman began travailing in birth in order to fulfill the time of the gentiles for the mystery of Revelation 12 to be completed, Daniel 12:1 next, three riders released within 2020 and 2023. These words are true and worthy, he who has ears to hear let him hear.)

    “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

    Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verse 3.

    “And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 21, verse 8 to 11.

    Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verse 8 to 10.

    “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 21, verse 25 to 28.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

    Gospel of John, chapter 3, verse 16 to 18.

    “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”

    First Corinthians, chapter 15, verse 3 to 6.

    “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

    Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 8.

    “knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”

    Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 3 to 4.

    “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

    First Thessalonians chapter 5, verse 3.

    “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

    First Thessalonians, chapter 4, verse 16 to 17.

    “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

    First Corinthians, chapter 15, verse 52.

    “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 17, verse 34 to 36.

    This is horrific but if these people spent more time rebuilding their ancient houses up to a modern code (and their dams also) and less HOURS every day praying to their obviously non-existent god, they would have been much better off. Time to stop living in the Middle Ages.

    Near 13K people were presumably swept to their death by 2 broken water dams. It's a distressful news for humans to face such tragedy. Libya is a desert country, now witbout its water reserves, the future is unclear. My sympathies and heart fell to the country and the Libyan people.

    It is a very sad tragedy that has happened to Libyans.
    May Allah relieve them of the sufferings that have come to them.
    Libyans have been subjected to the suffering they are facing today because of the conspiracy of the Satanist country America to destroy Libya.
    America, the maker of war and gathering wealth from the blood of innocent people, is spreading false propaganda through the CIA to get rid of President Gaddafi, who was kind to his people. By organizing and buying Libyan rebels with money, they organized a massive protest against Gaddafi, and in the name of maintaining peace, America declared war with NATO on Libya and the basic developments made during Gaddafi's rule.
    For example, it bombed the sewers, killed Gaddafi, and turned Libya into a hotbed for gangsters.
    Today, Libyans are regretting the devilish work done to them by the US, but they are living a life of pain, regretting the mistakes they made in not being able to enjoy the luxurious life they used to live under Gaddafi's rule.
    Do other Africans want more proof that America is the number one terrorist country in the world?

    As an American Muslim living in the Middle East, who also served during the first Iraq war in the American military, I can honestly say I am so very sad at how little most Americans know about the way things are here. Some of you come out with the most uneducated statements I’ve ever heard in my life. I hope none of you ever have to experience war, ISIS running around in your country dismembering and killing people, having your daughters stolen and raped by ISIS, being bombed by NATO, trying to take down a dictator through revolution, and now a flood. Do a lot of you even realize the world has different cultures and traditions and religions, and that just because it’s not your way doesn’t make it a bad way?

    May God have mercy on all of us, through His Son Jesus Christ. "He who has an ear to hear, hear! For these are only the beginning of sorrows" (Revelation 13:9, Matthew 24:8).

    When I looked on Google maps,the river bed and reservoirs were dry with vegetation growing and buildings and such. Is there a dry season when there is no water? Seems very odd to me. No question the dams burst and unleashed their torrent.

    If Sloppy Joe intends to send billions to Libya…The least he could BEFORE he does it, is up the ante of what he gave to Maui or else it's going to look like another slap in the face to American citizens…again. A 700$, one time, payment to the poor people of Maui…What an insult.

    It seems the frequency with which C19 is mentioned in the Democrat media is inversely proportionate to the plummeting of the potato's popularity… Coincidence? – I think not!
