Camping 'flabbergasted' by Judgment Day

ALAMEDA, Calif., May 23 (UPI) -- Harold Camping, the California man who predicted Judgment Day would arrive last Saturday, said he was "flabbergasted" when the rapture failed to arrive.

Camping, 89, a co-founder and host for the Family Radio network, said at his Alameda home he was "flabbergasted" when his prediction for the rapture to arrive at 6 p.m. Saturday failed to materialize, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.

"It has been a really tough weekend," Camping said Sunday.

The preacher had predicted the faithful would be called to heaven at 6 p.m. Saturday and those left behind would have to navigate a world of massive earthquakes until the Oct. 21 end of the world.

"I'm looking for answers," Camping said. "But now I have nothing else to say."

"I'll be back to work Monday and will say more then," he said.
