Is the end of the world coming?

An 89-year old Evangelical minister in California says this Saturday, May 21, will mark the end of the world.

Harold Camping owns Family Radio Worldwide and he is responsible for billboards like the one on I-95 northbound in Norwalk.

The billboards proclaim the world is coming to an end in just two days.

Similar billboards have been plastered all across the country.

Camping says May 21 is Judgment Day or the Day of Rapture.

Believers say the end of the world will begin on May 21, but the real end will be on Oct. 21.

Twenty years ago, Camping predicted the world would end in 1994.
