9-1-19 Firstly, nobody is out of the woods on this one. While it is good news it probably will not hit Fort Pierce, Florida, which has a nuclear reactor. The Florida coastline will experience significant flooding due to the storm surge, King Tides, and prolonged rain and wind with the storm surge. I mentioned the effects they experienced in Abaco today. With the King Tides, the tides are ALREADY 8 feet higher than normal. These are videos from some of the meteorologists we can trust, because they KNOW, experience and instinctually what can be expected.

These are two from Henry today.

and yes Mar-A-Lago was evacuated, so now you know it is still serious for Florida.

Yep folks, if the US is spared the full wrath of Dorian, there are two more waves after that. Time to really start thinking and getting stuff together. For me the full realization that I do not want to live in a hurricane zone has set in. I don't want to deal with hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes up close and personal. I am tired of being terrorized. Someone pointed out to me today, we have no control over these things, all we can do is react to it if we are called to deal with it.

There is an anticipated storm surge map. Now if the hurricane decides to make landfall anywhere along the coastline these numbers will change.

https://slosh.nws.noaa.gov/psurge2.0/


ONE HOUR AGO:

https://twitter.com/ryanmaue

Looking like it would do something at the Carolina coastline. I don't want to say landfall but that is on the table along with everything else.
***For Eastern NC: Regardless of Dorian's exact path, we are expecting heavy rain & gusty winds across the area starting Wed. Find #HurricanePrep tips at http://ready.gov/hurricanes #ncwx

Ed Piotrowski has videos from outside the Space station of the storm.

https://twitter.com/EdPiotrowski

His ready, set, go plan seems like people would already know this, but maybe not.

READY 5-7 days ahead - put a kit together or stuff you will take with you or that you need if you stay where you are.

SET 3-5 days ahead - if in the cone, plan, prepare property and get ready to leave.

GO 1-3 days ahead - evacuate if ordered to or if you are along the coastline, if inland shelter.


If you home is not secure enough to withstand the wind, rain that may come to you area. LEAVE. Look at the video of the woman in Abaco. There is nothing she can do.

You got a lot of people on this storm, lots of places to go for info. Utilize it. I saw reports that suggest when Dorian gets close to Florida it will be near Port Canaveral. You all know that is where they launch space shuttles from. You may also know that Trump wants to weaponize space, sending nukes up there to use at places down here if he thinks we are in a Space War. Well, God has to draw the line somewhere, I really don't think he wants us putting more stuff up there to launch on other nations. If Port Canaveral gets hit, I think we can assume God has spoken. Have a good night whippin' post.

Dave Mackey in Freeport Bahamas reported his house is 15 feet and the water is 8 feet high. Officials are telling people to find anything that will float and grab hammers so they can break out of their attics where people are trapped. Others are stranded on rooftops.

The airport at Grand Bahama is under 5 feet of water and high tide has not hit yet.

Storm chaser Josh Morgerman has not reported in since yesterday when he left to go to Marsh Harbor to higher ground and holed up in a school his blog is

He tweeted fellow storm chasers he is okay but banged up.

Melissa Tomlin has a great idea, Norwegian, Carnival and Royal Carribean cruise lines who benefit from Bahamas tourism should help bring supplies and give back to the islands that have given to them. The Royal British Navy is coming but the devastation is surreal.

For locals in the Bahamas who need rescue they can text to:

3595142

Officials have set that up for them.

Update: Royal Carribean is sending 1M [million] dollars to help with relief efforts.
Carnival Cruise Line will also send relief money.

If you are not following Miami Herald you should be.

Good night Whippin' Post, and yes there was a tornado on Long Island today not near me though. Don't think it did much, we get these horrible what I call weather terror storms, torrential downpours, cloud to ground lightning, winds more than 50 mph. We don't have normal weather anymore.

These sweet animals did not even try to get in the bed with her, they were just thankful to find shelter, food and love in the storm. They will need to be adopted. This lady has also helped at least 1,000 dogs over the last four years when storms came.

Storm surge for Carolinas can be 7 feet. Hurricane force winds about 60 miles inland, tropical storm force winds 175 miles in. The wind-field is expanding due to the cold front. They say Long Island should be okay. So should Little Rhody. Connecticut had a tornado tonight. I have to start snoopin' on what's going on in the troposphere. There might be things going on that we don't know.

200,000 people are already without power. There is significant flooding in South Carolina, but what is worse is tht there are multiple tornadoes from within the storm that will be heading to North Carolina as it gets there. These are NOT water spout tornadoes, these are tornadoes from within the hurricane in the outer bands. At least 5 of them.

The eye is at least 50 or 60 miles wide and the windfield is 175 miles, will be more as it makes it's way up the coastline.

South and North Carolina you are looking at 6-12 inches of rain.
Sotheast Virginia 3-8 inches of rain, Norfolk and Virginia Beach can expect Hurricane Force wind GUSTS, your tropical storm winds are 39-72 mph, hurricane is above that. The storm is a Cat 2 105 mph winds with 125 gusts.

Northeast can expect 2-4 inches of rain.

In the Bahamas there are victories and tragedies still occurring.

https://twitter.com/bahamaspress

The government got 200 body bags, they are telling people not to talk about all the dead people, but there are dead people floating in waters, there are sharks in the water also.

Good news:

20,000 meals have been loaded onto an “explorer vessel” that is being sent from Florida here to the Bahamas at the request of @chefjoseandres & his @wckitchen team. Meals will be prepared on the boat as the food is being brought here.

They delivered 2,000 sandwiches today, and planned 10,000 more tomorrow. They are even going to make the food on the boat while it is on it's 8 hr. trek to the Bahamas.

"Reporting in after a long day on Abaco and visiting Green Turtle Cay, where all 550 people survived! We @WCKitchen brought hot meals and heard incredible stories....They need a few things, but otherwise are okay!! #ChefsForBahamas"

AND 6 hrs. ago they already started delivering meals to Columbia County, North Carolina.

These guys are organnized.

007 "Shaken not stirred"

Sean Connery rode out Hurricane Dorian in his Bahamas home.

https://nypost.com/2019/09/06/sean-connery-says-he-was-lucky-to-survive-dor ian-in-bahamas/

https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/sean-connery-89-rode-out-hurrica ne-dorian-in-his-bahamas-home-we-were-lucky-compared-to-many-others/ar-AAGU yez#page=2

In an interview from his home there, he told the Scottish Daily Mail that he and his wife, artist Micheline Roquebrune Connery, were “both fine” and thanked people “for their concern.”

“We were lucky compared to many others,” said Connery, whose home is in the gated community of Lyford Cay on New Providence Island, which is about 95 miles from Great Abaco, which saw the greatest destruction. “The damage here was not great.”

He continued, “We had been prepared for the storm, everything was ready in advance — we weren’t taking any chances and knew what to do. It comes with living here, I suppose.”

https://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/articles/sean-connerys-bond-lifestyle

He has a mansion in a gated community of Lyford Cay in New Providence Island, 95 miles from Great Abaco.

Since the Bond days he is now involved in activisim of a sort.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/05/bahamas-bond-beach-peter-nyga rd-home-battle











He is happily married but did he ever live the life like James Bond? Carly Simon reportedly said a few things.

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/hurricane-dorian-sean-connery-bahamas -mansion.print

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/carly-simon-reveals-sean-connery-aske d-for-menage-a-trois-with-her-sister

In her new memoir, “Boys in the Trees,” Simon claims that in 1965, when she was 20, she and her 22-year-old sister, Lucy, met Connery aboard the SS United States traveling from England to New York. The sisters became friends with the then-35-year-old actor, and after having drinks with him one night, met him in his cabin.

There, he proposed having the ménage-à-trois — or as one of Carly’s friends called it, a “Simon sisters sandwich,” the book says. They turned him down.

Lucy, however, spent the following night with Connery, who was married to actress Diane Cilento at the time, and didn’t come back until 5:15 a.m. the next day, Carly Simon writes.

Okay now you've had your morning Latte and entertainment, now it's time to get back to the seriousness of the situation in the Bahamas. The only people who will definitely survive are the ones getting on private charter boats. People are waiting in long lines to get on boats in Freeport to go to Nassau. Marco Rubio and a Florida delegation visited Abaco and says only the Department of Defense can get in the heavy logistical support needed to re-establish some sort of survival for these people. Rand Hospital has 10 beds that are filled, and the rest of the rooms are flooded out; even the hospital cannot provide normal services for injured people. You need some field hospitals, but the most basic thing is WATER. People have no food or water, in 3 days with no water, a person goes into kidney failure and dies. This cannot wait.

Can someone send in desalinization equipment to help provide water. Can someone send in construction equipment to move the debris, so that tents can be set up? Can you provide generators and gas to help power up food tents? Sleeping bags, tarps, cots, blankets, pillows basic things, toothpaste, toilet paper, dumpsters for refuse removal? FOOD: BOOST liquid nutrition 30 grams protein supplements can help. What about storage sheds that could be set up quickly like PODS to help store materials? Pre-fabricated structures that could be erected quickly?

Why can't the cruise lines show some concern and send some boats to shelter people? Can ferries be sent to help get people to safe lands?

You have 70,000 people who have no food, water or shelter. It really cannot wait, and I HATE to say this but guess what, the European weather model has another wave forming in TWO WEEKS around the 19th or 20th, the response to Dorian will take time to get things back to normal, unfortunately those people are under the gun for survival and if there is another hurricane in 2 1/2 weeks, they will probably die if it goes thru those islands again.

Great news. @USAID has formally requested that @USNorthernCmd provide heavy lift aerial support to bring in desperately needed aid to #Abaco #Bahamas. First task will be to get an airfield open & ready for large airlift of supplies.

#HopeTown a community that easily handled Hurricane Irene in 2011 was no match for Cat 5 #HurricaneDorain - on the egress. They need supplies. Let the floatplanes land for starters.


Other remarks: There has been a lot of money put out to help the victims, there is also some belief that there is corruption with Bahamian officials so the money/food is not getting to the people. You really need boots on the ground for this sort of thing. One person said they were just collecting the bodies, we have seen them being loaded on pick up trucks, and it is believed the govt. may just be burning the bodies, like garbage.

Trump needs to authorize waiving the visa requirement for the victims so that some of them can be transported here. Those cruise ships should sail some boats in there use portable ramps so docks can be set up to help them get on board. Feed them, house them, relocate them for now. WHY CAN'T THIS HAPPEN? These people have nothing.

At least Royal Carribean is delivering some food.

FREEEPORT, BAHAMAS 9-7-19

Phillip Smith, the executive director of the Bahamas Feeding Network, fronted efforts to deliver 20,000 meals to those most in need in Freeport. The aid had been provided by the cruise line giant Royal Caribbean earlier in the day. At present, he said, no aid had been provided directly by the government of the Bahamas, although assistance was being given by its National Emergency Management Agency (Nema).

The Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is evacuating some 1,400 hurricane survivors, ferrying them from Freeport to West Palm Beach, Florida.

FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT, the islands are not livable and people have to be gotten off them.
