Hat Tip to those Treepers who are closely following Hurricane Dorian. Sadie Slays has been on this story from the beginning. As the storm closes in on Florida, we’re all concerned. Smiley2 likes this link best for updates: https://spaghettimodels.com/

“Basically, NHC forecast a 140-mph Cat 4 at landfall (or near to), and then the 00z run of the GFS shows Dorian coming in further south, in Broward County, and traversing nearly all the way across the state from east-to-west, before meandering through the entire peninsula for more than 48 hours.”
President Trump will be at Camp David this weekend monitoring the storm with the First Family. Vice President Pence will travel to Poland in his stead.
From Phoenix Rising ” I’m glad POTUS and family will be at Camp David this weekend……………. MARINES will guard our POTUS… keep him safe. And, POTUS has command of the situation wrt Dorian and any cr%p the Cabal is up to……… Yes, I can sleep tonight knowing this. Thank you Lord for Camp David.

Again, Sadie Slays has been on this story for days. Here is the recap Sadie gave us yesterday.
== HURRICANE WATCH DAY 2 ==Sadie Slays
Placeholder comment thread for Hurricane Dorian news that I find of interest.
== RE-CAP FROM 8/29 ==
– The 8/29 11 pm cone has Hurricane Dorian making a direct hit on Mar-a-Lago at Category 4 strength
– This will be the first time since the JFK Administration that America will have had three straight years of major hurricane landfall (defined at Cat 3 and above).
– POTUS himself is calling this storm “bigger than Andrew.”

In case anyone was wondering – the avg forward speed of #Dorian between Day 3 and Day 5 on the @NHC_Atlantic 11pm update shows a Category 4 landfall at 4.5 mph!!! That has never happened. pic.twitter.com/PD1VAlrzirAgain, from Sadie Slays

Hurricane Dorian is expected to slow down and steering currents have gone absent, confounding forecasters. From Cthulhu, here is a compilation meme of some of the last Cat 3 major Florida Hurricanes plotted from 1851-2018.
HURRICANE DORIAN strengthening rapidly with minimum pressure down to 977 mb measured by Hurricane hunter aircraft with max sustained winds up to 105 mph! The updated NHC forecast now has a powerful category 4 with 140 mph sustained winds approaching central FL early next week! pic.twitter.com/tmg0TTUf5VFrom Smiley2

if possible, click on the arrow (if it appears) to animate…
Unfortunately, great model agreement tonight on #Dorian making a landfall as a major hurricane near West Palm Beach TUE. Then, a turn N towards central & north FL, SE GA & the eastern portion of the Carolinas. A very dangerous & high impact event unfolding. Hope it changes! pic.twitter.com/tfqUsIID6F

Dorian is now tracking further south than yesterday …..
serious flooding will be an issue even in areas not directly in its path.
Cat 4 coming in.
Dorian is now clipping along at 977 millibars of pressure. Millibars indicate intensity of the storm and tracking millibars indicates strengthening or weakening. Here is a list of the largest storms and their millibar pressure at impact with coastline.

Almost everyone who lives in the southeast has a family “plan” for hurricanes. When I grew up in New Orleans, had grandparents in Pensacola, and lived in Miami, the “plan” was for me to travel and get out of the way. Checklists were taped to an inside closet door. Even now that we are 350miles inland, we still have a list of friends/family whom we KNOW will travel to our house should a hurricane head their way. An exceptionally good Hurricane checklist can be found HERE: https://www.surfandsunshine.com/how-to-prepare-for-a-hurricane-with-hurricane-preparedness-checklist/
We can add things like: Make sure you do ALL your laundry NOW and refill all medications. A well stocked, expanded, home first aid kit. An extra set of blades for a chainsaw is a Godsend. Bleach and clean all the tubs in your home and fill with water before the storm hits (if you’re staying). Right now, bake – cookies, brownies, granola bars for a healthy boost…… and share with your local fireman/police. Right now, FREEZE extra water in big containers using milk jugs/2 liter bottles, etc., to make big blocks of ice. Extra propane for the grill and a big pot to boil water.
Best personal hint: We took about 100 dish clothes/wash clothes and wet them with fresh water, added a few drops of bleach, sealed them in Glad Bags and put them in the freezer. In the aftermath, we used those towels everywhere.
Many Florida residents are new to the state and we strongly encourage they prepare and/or rely on neighbors who are a little more experienced with hurricane preparations. KNOW your neighbors, you won’t get through the aftermath of a hurricane without help from a few friendly souls.
Take care, God Bless, and pay attention to the alerts. If you receive an evacuation order – then you need to LEAVE!!
