The California radio preacher who predicted the apocalypse on May 21 has been moved to a nursing home, where he is recovering from a stroke he suffered last month.

Harold Camping's daughter confirms her father recently moved from an area hospital to a skilled nursing facility.

He is undergoing rehabilitation there to regain his strength following
the June 9 stroke.

Camping's Family Radio network is working to replace the 89-year-old's show, Open Forum, with interim programming.

The station has been playing repeats since his stroke.

It's unclear if the show will return.

Camping predicted Judgment Day would occur, first in 1994 and again in May.

His media empire spent millions of dollars, some culled from followers' donations, over seven years on billboards and other publicity for his 2011 predictions about the spiritual Rapture in May and the end of the world in October.
