And it happened that signs and portents of disaster began to be apparent in all places. There were storms upon the sun and great spots, and on the earth explosions and eruptions of mountains and risings of the sea in great waves and many storms on sea and on land.

And all this time the confusion of the elements increased, and everywhere there were great earthquakes and tall buildings were fallen and whole cities broken and destroyed.
