What does "ensuing" mean here?

"Carr’s account was typical of the equivocal Elizabethan responses to the rise of the Ottomans...he warned his audience ... that it was a story ‘telling of ensuing danger, not much divided from our own doors, when daily we lamentably see our neighbours’ houses not far off flaming’."

    Something that is ensuing an event is something that is following an event, possibly as a result of the event but also possibly just as a coincidence. There was a 4 car accident and in the ensuing chaos her purse was stolen.
