It is possibly bad news. They are already talking memories of Hugo here in SC. I’m admittedly scared of storms.


BrerRabbit - 9/8/2018 at 08:19 PM

I hope Gina doesn't see this thread. Next thing it will be the Chosen Talibans at war saving us from George Soros who started this hurricane with HAARP to create a vacuum of chaos so the Satanists can take over Alabama.


BrerRabbit - 9/8/2018 at 08:30 PM

sorry sckeys- not making light of it, hope everyone gets thru ok in the low country.


dutchoneill - 9/8/2018 at 08:33 PM

Not my favorite time of year with memories of Sandy still fresh in our minds.


sckeys - 9/8/2018 at 09:43 PM

I didn’t get seriously scared of storms until a tornado hit the place I was renting in 09. I can physically feel the tension and stress these days. I’m in the upstate where we were told there wasn’t much to worry about in 89 during Hugo but we found out a different story by morning.

Let’s hope this thing stays offshore.


LeglizHemp - 9/8/2018 at 10:13 PM

remnants of Hurricane Gordon are hitting Indiana.
it's been raining for 24+ hours and its gonna get worse in about an 30 mins, and rain harder for 5 hours.
course not that bad until the river/creek behind house rises


Stephen - 9/9/2018 at 12:59 PM

Gordon turned out not to be as bad as they'd thought
There's a lot more info about Florence on the weather thread -- people don't understand what Gina posts, so therefore she gets derided, but it's valuable, scientifically based info that proves accurate as often as not -- thank you Gina


sckeys - 9/9/2018 at 02:37 PM

I wouldn't put any of those things past the named individuals. I did find it quite interesting when I looked at some of the models yesterday that for prolonged periods of time the storm was estimated to be a 911 millibars. Just a coincidence of course....

I will be on the soapbox as early as possible when the meteorologists who have not been bought or threatened by their networks not to tell people the truth know. (remember we knew 5 days before Katrina that it had a 5 mile wide eye and Ray Nagin did't tell his people till Sunday night before the storm that maybe they should consider evacuating? This storm is slated to be a Cat 4 or 5 whereever it is going on, you cannot stay there and ride it out, you got to go for your own safety and to not end up in a fema camp which could also happen.)


sckeys - 9/9/2018 at 10:59 PM

They are making preparations and declaring emergency on the coast already. There is still time for it to turn I hope.

Muleman1994 - 9/10/2018 at 02:44 PM

The coastal Carolinas and SE Virginia will be greatly affected with H-Florence coming ashore very late Thursday or early Friday morning. There is a slight northerly turn evident in the trusted EURO Tropical and GFS Tropical models. The variable is that the storm will likely stall and churn late Wednesday.

As of this morning Florence looks like a Cat 3 (111-129 mph) at landfall. The upside is that this hurricane lacks girth.

The people who live in the area that would be most affected know how to prepare for these events and know to get out. The sooner the better is the rule which allows you to choose to go where you want and stay with family, friends or the hotel of your choice.

Otherwise shelters will be available, but you won’t get to choose your roommates or order from the menu.

We secured our house in Duck this weekend and I am just leaving USCG-Oregon Inlet and heading up Route 12 and off the OBX. Traffic right now is tolerable. That will not last long.

Busy times with TS/H Isaac heading directly towards The Caribbean.

Not on the water. We are further back, a lesson learned after having a house 1n Avon for 10 years.

Being safe is the plan and thank you. The people going through the Brew-Thru does give you pause.

I am most concerned for the poorest of the poor, the elderly and the special needs people. Many simply do not have the means to evacuate.

Local churches know these people and where they live, and the local communities do a good job of helping.

Getting the evacuation information and shelter locations out can be difficult.

I am headed to the NOAA/NHC facility at NAS-Oceana for a 6pm meeting. Hopefully the word down-graded occurs. Optimism help the attitude.

Yes, do ask the Puerto Rican people why:

- Their Island’s power grid failed
o PR’s power grid did not fail due to the hurricane. It had been failing for many years
- Their government did not resolve the trucker’s strike
o The relief supplies could not be delivered because they could not be secured
o Those same supplies could not be delivered because their truck drivers refused to work, and PR’s government would not detail National Guardsmen to drive the trucks.
- The relief supplies could not be delivered until the storm passed. Once the supplies were on the docks they sat there for weeks and then they were stolen by the local politicians and residents.
- Their government failed to submit their Response Plan as required by law
o Why had PR’s government not come into compliance with the National Response Framework year after year
- Why did PR’s emergency management representatives not show up for the National Hurricane Conference in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015?
o Reason: They replied that they would if someone else paid for their transportation, accommodations, meals and incidentals.
o In 2014 Obama gave them the funding to attend the NHC. Their representatives did arrive in New Orleans but never showed up at the conference.

Puerto Rico’s politicians wanted the American Tax Payers to build them a new power grid.

President Trump, through DHS, did offer the relief funding PR requested but due to PR’s history of corruption, required an independent accountability audit. Once PR received the reply with the accountability requirement they were never heard from again except when their politicians went running to the TV cameras to complain.

Two Puerto Rican politicians and two mayors were arrested this year for corruption.

Puerto Rico’s problems are self-inflicted. Their incompetence and corruption are their problem.

Disaster mitigation, response and relief are a States (territory) responsibility. The Federal Government’s responsibility is to support the State which is exactly what President Trump’s administration did very well.

Do ask the Puerto Rican people why they continue to elect Democrat-Socialists that have failed them year after year after year.

Hmmm, why do Americans keep electing Republicans who fail them year after year? The red states remain the poorest in the country. We just had two Republican congressmen arrested for corruption this month. Trump's response to Puerto Rico is one of his greatest failures and he is lucky that the US media failed to report the extent of it. That is Trump's brilliance. He says something stupid and the media report that instead of reporting on his constant failures. He is truly the master distractor.

Your ignorance of the problems in the Puerto Rico response demonstrates that the corrupt liberal media owns you.

Its all good. You are the perfect example of why President Trump continues to accomplish so much while the far-left extremists simply comment.

Every bit of what I posted is factually accurate.

You can add that Puerto Rico had had and has no functioning Emergency Response entity.
It is the Democrat-Socialists that run that Island and they are directly responsible for their failures.

This picture is making the rounds of how incompetent or corrupt (or both) the Puerto Rico leadership was in managing the relief effort. Those are thousands of cases of bottled water being wasted or worse withheld from the needy.

Once the water, or any other supplies are delivered it is the responsibility of the State/Local relief operation to distribute it to the people.

Approximately 3,000 people died in PR. Sorry, no way to just brush it off. A well run agency sees things through, and if things are not working downstream then you make it work.

- No one is brushing anything off.
- What should FEMA have done to prevent an act of nature from occurring?

A well-run agency sees things through, and if things are not working downstream then you make it work.
- Obviously, a statement from someone with no professional experience or common sense.
- A well-run agency follows the protocols as established between all the disaster mitigation, response and recovery entities. Puerto Rico failed to meet their responsibilities and do their job.

The death toll to American citizens in PR is similar to the death toll on 9/11.
- A false equivalency.
- The 9/11/2001 Islamic Extremists terror attacks were entirely preventable had Bill Clinton done his job. He was more interested in saving his own a$$ and repeatedly ignored the warnings from his own intelligence services.

If you were at all familiar with the National Response Framework you would know better than to post something so stupid.

The responsibility for disaster response lies with the State. The federal government supports the lead.

The disaster response to hurricane Harvey in Texas and hurricane Irma in Florida were exceptional because both States have superior emergency response plans and executed them in coordination with FEMA and all the other related agencies, NGOs and non-profits.

Puerto Rico failed at every level due to their government’s corruption, and incompetence.

"3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000," he tweeted Thursday.

"This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!"

Now it is just time to wait for the storm to come on through. Immediately afterwards PDA information will be assembled and analyzed with ground reports. Shelter population reports indicate that they can take many more people.

Consumer grade cellular systems are beginning to fail. Thankfully sat-phones/radio will continue to work.

A document with no source and is factually wrong.
It is crap and yet again you bought it.
Sucker.




You're the sucker. You support the president.


I would love to unpack this. Do you think Donald Trump calculated this run for President with Putin to destroy America? Do you think he said I will run for President to build more hotels? Do you think he said I will waste my time and money against A LOCK CANDIDATE to promote some hidden agenda that favors Russia?

After our meeting at Oceana Monday I caught a flight up to Joint Base Andrews. Then on Tuesday morning it was over to The Pentagon for the 9/11 event and back across the river to the FEMA Operations Center.

I’ll be there for at least a week. One of my adjuncts is at the NC Operations Center and the other is at the SC Center.

Now we wait.

Before Florence made landfall, hog farms had been frantically trying to lower the level of those lagoons by spraying the waste on fields. But as of noon Tuesday, four hog lagoons in the hurricane area had been breached, 13 had overflowed and nine had been inundated. Another 55 were at or almost at capacity and in danger of overflowing, according to the Department of Environmental Quality.

As Hurricane Florence hit the North Carolina Coast, the corrupt liberal media was running front page and multiple full-page articles trying to trash President Trump about Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria response.

Those hit pieces failed to mention that FEMA has had and currently is running 7 disaster recovery operations in PR.

They also failed to mention that Puerto Rico is run by corrupt Democrat/Socialists and that a number of those politicians and government officials that have been arrested and are being prosecuted for corruption and fraud.


Okay:

FBI agents raid San Juan government offices as part of investigation into fraud, corruption

https://www.foxnews.com/world/fbi-agents-raid-san-juan-government-offices-a s-part-of-investigation-into-fraud-corruption

REUTERS/Alvin Baez)
FBI agents this week raided the municipal offices in San Juan, Puerto Rico – rooting through documents and seizing digital records as part of a widespread investigation into fraud and obstruction of justice charges tied to the city government.

San Juan’s purchasing division was the target of the raid. And while FBI special agent Douglas Leff did not implicate Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz in the raid, he did tell local media that “we are going to follow the investigation where it leads us.”

Cruz tweeted Tuesday that she has instructed city officials to cooperate with federal authorities and said, “If someone has done something wrong, they should undergo due process and face the consequences of their actions.”

On Tuesday, more than two dozen agents entered the city’s Municipal Tower carrying briefcases, cameras and electronic equipment, Puerto Rican news agency El Nuevo Dia first reported.

Federal agents raided the third, fourth, 14th and 15th floors of the building, looking for documents related to corruption inside San Juan’s purchasing and contracting departments.

The raid was sparked by an anonymous tip called into the comptroller’s office over how the mayor’s office awards government contracts – specifically, a $4.7 million deal with construction company BR Solutions.

El Nuevo Dia claims the company is owned by a businessman who has made questionable political donations to several Puerto Rican politicians.

The raid comes a month after President Trump hinted at corruption in the U.S. territory and caused an uproar after questioning the number of people who died as a result of Hurricane Maria.

The bad blood between the two leaders often plays out on social media. Trump has called out Cruz’s management style while Cruz has hammered Trump on his response after Maria.

Earlier this year, local news outlets reported Cruz’s administration was being investigated for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of Hurricane Maria- a category-4 storm that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory more than a year ago.

The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting “alleged irregular acts” to the local comptroller.

The report says Molina claims she was punished for reporting on the allegedly rigged system and that she was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.”

Shortly after Cruz became mayor, Molina claims a supply company was granted “preferred supplier” status which paid them more than three times what regular suppliers made. She also alleges that other city officials engaged in a corrupt scheme to steer business the preferred supplier’s way.

Concerns about Cruz are not new. There has been a growing backlash from frustrated residents who say they feel forgotten and charge the mayor’s personal political ambitions are coming at the expense of the very people she’s supposed to be representing.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.

Multiple calls to the Department of Justice’s San Juan field office were not returned.

Probably just as well - gotta get those pesky Puerto Ricans out of the way to build golf courses in "Puerto Trump" - good time to grab real estate there, rock bottom:

Donald Trump told a large, enthusiastic Keokuk, Iowa audience that he’s going to purchase the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in order to resolve its debt crisis and rename it 'Puerto Trump':

. . .Trump told his Keokuk audience, “One of the best things about being very rich is that you can buy whatever you want, and in this case, I want Puerto Rico.

“It’s a beautiful place, the weather’s great, and the people are already American, even though they speak Spanish.

“I have no idea how that happened, but so be it.”

'I’m buying Puerto Rico to make a point,” Trump told his Iowa followers. “You can speak Spanish. You can be an American. And you can play golf, too.”

After the rally, Trump told reporters that he intended to turn much of the island into a “really fabulous” 1,800-hole golf resort.

“We’ll have 100 courses,” he said, “stretching from one end of the island to another. I don’t think there’s really that much in the way. Maybe some chickens.”

Asked whether he thought that the Puerto Rican electorate would support his purchase of their island and turning it into a golf paradise for wealthy Americans, Trump snapped, “They don’t have a say in this. I’m assuming their debt. What happens next is up to me.”

Ok ok , so you say his comments were purely bait for Fake News reporters. Even if so, how does that make this comment any less crass:

Trump: “It’s a beautiful place, the weather’s great, and the people are already American, even though they speak Spanish.

“I have no idea how that happened, but so be it.”

Or this one, if I posted something like this even totally sarcastic you would go for my jugular as a heartless lefty:

Trump: "I don’t think there’s really that much in the way. Maybe some chickens.”

Media bait or adlib provoca-crock, it is patently offensive and in grossly poor taste and displays the lack of empathy you are so sensitive to.

Then I make no comment of my own and post these callous statements by your cult leader and you attack me for lack of empathy! Unbelievable - you are totally brainwashed.

Are you selling flowers in airports to raise money for Trumptown? First in line at the KoolAid vat I bet.

Heads up y'all. Next weekend if things go the way they can go there will be a Gulf storm that crosses over Florida then heads up the Atlantic reaching N.Y. Sunday into Monday with Cat 1 winds and rain. North of metro NY would be the winds + snow.

This has got to stop.
