Then the second angel sounded and there was something like a great mountain burning with fire that was cast into the sea, and a third part of the sea became like blood. And a third part of the living creatures which were in the sea died, and a third part of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9) This event will take place primarily over water, but its effect will also decimate much of the coastline of the United States, the United Kingdom and some of their allies, including the complete destruction of some cities. A third of all the waters within the boundaries of these countries will become lifeless; everything will die in these areas. This death will include a third of all the people on boats and ships. However, there will be hundreds of thousands who will die on the coastal areas of these same regions.
The reason for the destruction of so many shipping vessels is that this event occurs primarily in port cities where there are large concentrations of ships, commerce and people.
