Hurricane Dorian

Dorian has pretty well levelled much of the northern Bahamas.

Quote:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-us-un-bahamas


“We are in the midst of a historic tragedy,” said the Bahamian prime minister, Hubert Minnis. “The devastation is unprecedented and extensive.”
The dimensions of the humanitarian disaster began to emerge after the slow-moving storm, which took about 36 hours to cross the five-mile-wide Grand Bahama, finally left the country on Tuesday afternoon.


The storm hit Abaco island on Sunday as a category 5 hurricane with wind gusts of up to 220mph – making it the strongest Atlantic storm ever to make landfall, tied with the Labor Day hurricane of 1935.
In a country accustomed to harrowing encounters with fierce storms, Dorian registered as a disaster on another scale.

The equal stronget storm, but also the most destructive in those terms since it was very slow moving and stalled on top of the Bahamas for a day.


The Bahamas is going to find it very difficult to recover from this.

They are pretty sure Dorian will do a hard right before he gets there. There will probably be flooding of low lying streets due to higher tides and rising sea levels at the least, though.

It's noticeable that press interest only became really strong when it appeared to be a threat to the USA.

Did Trump ever pour money into Puerto Rica after the hurricane damage it suffered last year?

Reporting number of deaths in terms of who died immediately is incredibly misleading as in the long-term, homelessness, stress, diseases from contaminated water, heart and lung diseases arising from environmental damage and pollution, even cancer, as a direct result of a devastating storm, results in a spike in the number of deaths in the years down the line.

From the videos coming out there are going to be a lot of casualties. The storm was unprecedented so a lot of people would not have been aware of the level of risk.

I think that's (if it's the same Mike Morales) one of the OMG HAAARRRPPPP guys. There was also a gloom and doom guy by the same name who was big on Planet X or weaponized comets or something like that.

I love the woo-meister spin that these weather disasters are all a big money-making scam to get you to go out and waste money on batteries and bottled water and gas or diesel.... as though, you won't consume those things and they'll just be left to deteriorate.

Survivors are on TV thanking God for sparing their lives. But nobody seems to be cursing God for doing this to them in the first place.

There will be no explanation forthcoming. Particularly from those who think gods are involved in any of this.

We are currently on a cruise ship on the northeast coast (currently Maine). Looks like the remains of Dorian may catch up to us before the cruise is over next week. Our itinerary has already been modified once in an attempt to avoid the predicted path. The plan seems to be farther west in the St Lawrence Seaway by the time Dorian reaches Canada and continues to veer east. We may be in for a bumpy ride.

No, no, Steve, you're on vacation. I think it would be best for each of you to use a middle man on this. Since I'm obviously someone you guys can trust, why don't both of you send your bank acct numbers and passwords to me. I'll make sure this goes effortlessly for both of you.

There was plenty of press coverage of PR during the event and in the aftermath, and plenty of criticism of Trump for lying about the extent of the damage and the death count, and for claiming that vastly more money had been appropriated for recovery than was the fact. There are even indications from some of his comments that he doesn't understand -- or accept -- that Puerto Rico is part of the U.S., and that Puerto Ricans are Americans, just like Texans and New Yorkers, and that's been covered, too.

Particularly regarding the PR death count (from 2018):
Quote:
As hurricane season begins this week, experts are still trying to count the number of deaths caused by last year’s devastating Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The latest estimate: roughly 4,600, many of them from delayed medical care.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/29/u...?module=inline

Plenty of coverage, and nothing like an adequate response from Trump.

The Carolinas being hit pretty hard; not on the Bahamas level but still very serious damage.
Update: Dorian has had some kids...some Tornados which are ripping through Carolina.

All your kind offers and suggestions are very much appreciated. At this point it seems that an over land voyage to Alabama is not into cards. My money and I will put our faith in the speed of this ship and the calm waters of eastern Canada.

Why?

Quote:
The International Red Cross fears 45% of homes on Grand Bahama and the Abacos - some 13,000 properties - were severely damaged or destroyed.

Parts of the Bahamas received up to 35in (89cm) of rain, leaving vast areas of it flooded.

The Island of Great Abaco is virtually uninhabitable, with bodies piled up, no water, power or food, and militias formed to prevent looting, local media report.
Death toll expected 'to be staggering'.

I'd wager a trip directly through the remnants of Dorian would be slightly preferable to a trip to Alabama.

As to the why god makes us suffer, see my sig. It's a feature, not a bug.

Five dead so far in the Carolinas; of course the destruction is not on the same level as the Bahamas but it's bad enough.

I will not disagree with that.

Looks like our future holds neither. It was a beautiful calm day at the northeast coast of Nova Scotia. Our ship is now heading west at a decent clip and we will be well clear of the west edge of the projected path by the time it reaches Canada.

This story made me smile:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/hu...cid=spartandhp


The DC-3/C 47/Dakota: No wonder it's considered one of the greatest planes in aviation history. Of all the WW2 era planes, the DC-3 is the only one still widely used outside the "Flying Circus" circuit.

Seems as though that old saying about the C 47 is true;You can wreck one, but you can't wear it out.....
