This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

I believe the word you are looking for is imminent:
1 About to happen.
‘they were in imminent danger of being swept away’
(From Oxford Dictionaries.)
certain to happen: Accidents are the inevitable result of carelessness.
