Sure, if they make new categories. These people are delivering news to the American public?

Omg.

Last week, I recall hearing a quick blurb about a significant patch of warm water causing hurricane Harvey to pick up energy, pushing wind speeds to much higher levels. The actual report was only seconds long. This was Network News, probably channel 12, which does seem to give a much more complete weather report than most other channels here on the East Coast. I don't recall a mention of why the water was warmer.


News items like this are all the more effective if they are short.

"Warmer ocean" = "Stronger hurricanes".

Get that in the audience's heads, and it is not a long leap towards their making the deduction

"Strongest ever hurricane" = "warmest ever ocean"

Sooner or later, they may wonder why the ocean is so warm nowadays. It's all baby steps, but steps in the right direction none the less.

St. Martin, start it around 2:53 if you don't care to listen to the first part. There's actual video in this of Irma hitting St. Martin. 185 mph winds, hit this morning around dawn, he says.

JetBlue does themselves proud. Cap on flights leaving Florida as well as connecting flights.

Relax and go to your favorite Florida Beach this weekend: Rush Limbaugh has declared that hurricanes are fake news.

Here's a suggestion. He has a home in Palm Beach, FL. Let's see where he is on Saturday morning, k?

I know the Chinese are behind the global warming hoax. I just can't figure out how they are getting all these hurricanes to hit our country. Darned clever, those Chinese!

I read this earlier on Facebook and found it just a bit of comic relief in this tense situation.

"It's like Trump denied climate change and climate said: Hold my beer."

That one's easy. They fly a tight formation of several dozen drones sporting lit Sterno cans on their backs up to newly-forming tropical depressions, and then back towards the US coast line, in order to 'lead and feed' them into large hurricanes that strike with uncanny precision at areas that have the greatest number of Wal-marts, thus simultaneously injuring the American economy while strengthening China's by also requiring Wal-mart to reorder millions of tons of cheap -ass Chinese crap products to restock the shelves of their soon-to-be rebuilt hurricane-damaged stores.

In other news...it looks like this storm is wider than the Floridian peninsula. :cry:

I can't see it downgrading before it makes landfall in FL. As many here, I am sure, I have friends and family all up and down the East Coast. I just hope folks are taking this seriously and on their way out of the path of this storm.

Miami has a diaper bank. Just saying, already checked it out. I almost doubt it's going to do any good though. There may be nothing left of Miami.

If this building is breached by rainfall and flood waters, the resulting explosion could be catastrophic.

As if there was any doubt as to the ridiculousness that is Limbaugh, he is now evacuating from the librul conspiracy™.

Quote:
wo days ago, right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh said that Hurricane Irma’s news coverage was a ploy to create “fear and panic,” and predicted that the storm probably wouldn’t impact the major population centers of South Florida.

It took Limbaugh about a day to change his mind.

On Thursday, the bag of bluster announced that he’d be going to be taking a hiatus from his Palm Beach, Florida, house and studio, leaving someone else to handle his show.

So, I've been praying that Irma doesn't hit Florida. I think it might work...

I'm not entirely sure how many hurricanes are on the move right now. Think there's three headed towards FL and one barreling towards Mexico?

I just hope everyone evacuates like they've been told and that others who are in a position to do so, will kindly donate to relief efforts.

As someone pointed out tonight, if you're a cocaine smuggler from South America it's probably a good weekend to stay home.

Even though this paid prevaricator declared the hurricane to be a "fake news', he did indeed evacuate. Rush would not allow himself to be a victim of his own conservative nonsense.

I imagine Rush could be criminally responsible for injuries incurred by little old ladies and their cats who stayed because they believed Rush when he said the hurricane was not real.

While I'd be all for that. There isn't any legal liability for the limpbowel to face.

Thought this brief comparison between Andrew and Irma was pretty interesting. Of course Irma is rolling in right now so some of this may not still apply.
