The Bahamas are going to receive significant damage. The clouds have that “belly of the beast” look about them. Everyone in the Bahamas understands how severe this hurricane will be. Send a prayer

For the US mainland, we’re still not sure where the storm will come ashore but Georgia and the Carolinas are now on watch. MOST of the forecasting indicates the storm will turn north sooner than expected…. or will it?

Sadie finds the greatest videos for this hurricane.

From the White House.

Ken Graham is Head of the National Hurricane Center and I’m in love with this guy. He’s EVERYWHERE on the news. Working hard, no complaints, calm, cool, and collected + extremely informative. He gets a raise!!

Almost everyone who lives in the southeast has a family “plan” for hurricanes. 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 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.

Please feel free to add tips, tricks, memes, hints, prayers related to Hurricane Dorian. Thank you for your help.

The President is at Camp David, Pence will travel to Poland. The President will return for a press conference at FEMA on Sunday, about 12:30pm

Take care, God Bless, Love to all. This one is serious. Storm surge in the Bahamas is expected to be 15-20feet high. Waves on top of storm surge, according to Weather Channel are topping 40′ high.

Well, if that storm track holds, once it gets past the Bahamas the eye won’t hit land until it gets to N. Carolina. And by then, it will be weaker. However, it’s wide enough that it will still bring a lot of rain and storm surge. The Bahamas are what I’m worried about. I really hope whoever lives there has left for the lower islands or elsewhere. They’re going to get a direct hit. Are they a US territory?

Deplorable Patriot

Yep. Love the Bahamas.

wheatietoo

This storm is reminding us how difficult it is to predict what a Hurricane will do…
For example, this time yesterday the forecast models were predicting a direct hit on Florida.
And now…many are saying that it won’t.
But some are still saying that it will:

.
I remember watching Hurricane Andrew…and the forecasters were predicting that it would go straight North.
Then…it made a left turn and went right across South Florida.
It’s best to be prepared for the worst than not be prepared, though.

Sadie Slays

(Re-posting this link from the last thread). The NHC has an animated history of the storm’s forecast cones, so you can see how the official forecast has changed over time.

There’s speculation elsewhere that the storm is actually a Category 5, but the NHC is refusing to make it official for various reasons.

just now saw where the sustained winds are 174 mph, with gusts at 200 mph
can’t even begin to comprehend that.

Crossing my fingers, but I have a bad feeling we’ll have house guests tomorrow. I’m just hoping my aunt and cousins are okay in the Daytona area. Stubborn woman won’t leave.

Bad News.

andyocoregon

From what I’ve heard about hurricanes, when they slow way down in very warm waters, it’s a sign they are strengthening and that’s just what this one seems to have done.
I would not want to be anywhere in the Bahamas right now. I’m sure it’s way too late to evacuate.

PRAYER FOR ENCOURAGEMENT
Father God
We come to You humbly before the Throne of Grace – in the name of Jesus – we pray for Encouragement as we prepare for the storm to come.
We ask You to quell our apprehension, fear, and trepidation for we know not what we will be required to do in the coming days.
We ask You to help us prepare physically, mentally, and spiritually to battle the forces of evil that are guiding this storm.
We ask You to assist us with our domestic animals to calm them and bring them to safety.
We put our Trust solely in You – we believe in Your promise never to leave or abandon us in our hour of need.
We put our Hope solely in You – we believe Jesus is the Hope for the future – that He has the power to calm this storm.
We put our Faith solely in You – we believe You want what is best for us – and because You love us – we are not afraid.
We ask You protect the President, his family, our country, our friends and families – keep them out of harm’s way.
We ask You take this storm in Your Mighty Hands – and cast it out to sea – leaving all in its path safe and secure.
We ask You take hold of the wind – the water – and the power behind this storm – and reduce its hold over the land.
We ask You empower the people – to do as Your Son asked them -to love one another as He loved us.
We pray the Lord’s Prayer – knowing you will provide what we need – when we need it – by the Power of Your Spirit.
We acknowledge Your unconditional Love for us – and we believe Your Love will sustain us.
We ask it all in the Precious and Holy Name of Jesus – Amen.comment image

Extreme seems to be the word most used to describe Dorian:

Any wiggle to the left…..and the eastern coast states will be devastated.

MAGA Mom

I lived in hurricane country for almost 20 yrs, several hours inland but still got whacked hard a number of times. Learn much and have shared all of my tips learn multiple times (while still together back at OT). Most everything I would say has generally already been shared.
Here is a tip that I learned just last year when trying to help a internet friend stuck in the aftermath of a hurricane. I had never thought to do this in all of the years I lived through hurricanes in hurricane country so thought I would share today.
If you may be affected by the storm, on the coast or inland, have the numbers of the various agencies handy and ready to use. You, of course, will charge up your cell phone to max but will want to conserve the charge after loosing power and will want to search the internet as little as possible. Plus, cell phone coverage may be spotty.
Now (or in the future to have ready for next time) get the phone numbers of the gov agencies esp. fema, city/county & state departments that will be dealing with the storms and emergency services. Find out the local orgs that will bring food in case you need to conserve gas or where the food drops/give out stations will be. Have your insurance agent’s number, corp number and policies ready. Have the number to the red cross or other groups that will be active in your area.
Once the electric is out and services are needed – whether 1 or 7 days after (sometimes it takes a while to get debris cleared to even get roads open!) you won’t want to spend time searching the internet and making calls to figure out exactly who are you supposed to call and who is there to help you.
Took me a number of hours to get a list of numbers together for the friend and to find out who was delivering food, gas and necessities and where food give away points where. The friend then had to only call the numbers with cell phone charge, minutes and coverage available to them.
Red Cross first aid stations, etc. are good to know too. And which orgs will help with debris clean up (if you are older and unable) as well as general home clean up (due to roof damage, flooding etc.). have the numbers ready so that you can call and get on the lists immediately. Esp. FEMA — sooner the better!!!!
So, make a resource and telephone number list as well as web sites so you save Much needed time and have it ready to use

stronger than Andrew !
worst to hit Bahamas in modern history ?

andyocoregon

Gigantic storm just keeps getting stronger and more deadly by the hour.

🦋🦋bflyjesusgrl🦋🦋

If you have them, Don’t forget to charge your portable battery bank devices. Those will provide additional power for cellphones. After Ike (electricity was out for days/weeks and roads were flooded city wide), I burned a quarter tank of gas on work conference calls in first 2 days, idling vehicle in garage for cell power. Wish I’d had power banks back then. I have since bought a 10,800 and a 22,000mah and always keep both charged and take one with me every time I leave house. That little 10,800 is over 5yrs old, just as strong as day I bought it for $23, very impressed!!! Had to get the 22,000 for iPad power demands. .

An electric generator, even a small one is very very useful. We have well water and animals so we have a generator hooked up to our well.
Make sure the generator has the WATTS so it can run your frig/freezer. Just cooling them off a couple times a day will save your food if you do not open the doors. (Now is the time to eat down the frig)
We have several coolers so we use them with a block of ice for things like cream for the coffee (tea), cheeses & meats cooked before hand, hard boiled eggs in the shell, fruit, veggies like carrots & celery that can be eaten raw and keep well.
CANNED FOODS ARE YOUR FRIEND Most can be eaten cold including soups, canned tuna, salmon, chicken, ham, veggies… Stock up on crackers and double bag in sealable plastic. Plastic totes & a garbage bag are great for storing things so they do not get damp.
Do not forget things like jerky, granola bars and even candy. I like the green pea snacks Remember to get PLENTY of plastic bags of all varieties for storing food and keeping out the damp/mold.
>>>>>>>>>>>
I repeat, scrub all your tubs with bleach and then line with plastic dropcloths (Walmart paint section) fill with clean water.
Fill lots of containers with fresh water. I clean and sanitize old soda bottles with bleach for this purpose.

It’s times like this we have to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of the hurricane hunter crews that fly through the eye of monster storms like Dorian to collect valuable data.
I heard a couple of their planes had broken windshields recently, probably from huge hail stones.
