OAKLAND, Calif., May 11 (UPI) -- A Christian radio network has purchased 1,200 billboards across the United States and 2,000 overseas to warn "Judgment Day" arrives May 21.
Family Radio, based in Oakland, Calif., said five caravans have been traveling the country since October handing out flyers predicting arrival of the biblical end of times and it is now buying billboard space to augment those efforts, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.
Harold Camping, the 89-year-old co-founder of Family Radio, said Judgment Day will come in the form of massive earthquakes beginning at 6 p.m. May 21 and continuing until October. He said believers will be called to heaven while the unrepentant will be shamed.
Camping, who previously predicted an apocalypse in 1994, said his biblical research was not properly completed at the time and he is now certain the end times will arrive May 21.
