20190903 Dorian Hurricane Watch. "Stationary"

Dorian isn’t moving and the onslaught on Grand Bahama continues. The hurricane has weakened somewhat, but keep in mind, like earthquakes, “Categories” of hurricanes are exponential. A Cat 4 hurricane is 250 X’s more destructive than a Cat 1.

Here are our latest updates. As before, we have embedded the address link from NOAA and the updates will occur automatically.


As of 9:00pm Eastern Time, Sept 2, 2019, we’re at 140mph, 942 millibars of pressure, wind gusts to 165mph, tidal surge is running 12-18 feet, with waves on top of the surge, ………. and the track of Dorian is…….. Stationary.

The man below is Lloyd Allen, and he is with ZNS News. He is he first reporter into Abaco Island and came in with the US Coast Guard, who has now set up a helo ferry to the capitol in Nassau for injured victims. His reporting is being widely shared by CBS and other main outlets. His Twitter feed is astonishing and graphic. Warning. It includes phone calls to Police/Fire from desperate citizens. It includes photos of flatbed trucks accumulating dead bodies, and lists of those to save…… One officer died in Freeport today.

Another terrific source for the science buffs is Weather . us.

Levi Cowan, our Tropical Tidbits grad student, continues to overperform.

Until Dorian decides what she wants to do, we’re all at her mercy. All we can do is wait. Meanwhile, USA residents from Florida to Virginia are under a state of emergency. We’re all ready…… as ready we can be. Utility crews are in place, businesses are boarded up, some have left town already. Now, all we can do is………

Again, thank you to all the Treepers and their contributions. Your information compiled herein has helped many as the posts continue to be shared. Couldn’t do it without you. And a hat tip to MollyPitcher for the banner photo today!

Clever Hong mongers

Hong Kong Protestors Using Mesh Messaging App China Can’t Block: Usage Up 3685%.How do you communicate when the government censors the internet? With a peer-to-peer mesh broadcasting network that doesn’t use the internet.
That’s exactly what Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters are doing now, thanks to San Fransisco startup Bridgefy’s Bluetooth-based messaging app. The protesters can communicate with each other — and the public — using no persistent managed network.

Concerned Virginian

This app sounds to me like the new version of the old hand-held 2-way radio. When the Communist Chinese army starts to pull a Tiananmen Square on the HK protesters (the army is setting up and running drills for this now, waiting for the signal from the Politburo in Beijing), this may save many lives.
By the way, XI, clever man, will arrange it so that when the Politburo orders the army to crush the HK “rebels”, he will be able to claim that he was “outnumbered”. I believe the real truth is that XI is right there in the middle of it — anything else is posturing for Western consumption.
But POTUS already knows this.


Bahama Prime Minister giving press conference. US facilitated today’s aerial tour which produced videos we’ve been seeing from from Abaco and Marsh Harbor today. North side of island is Decimated, south side fared better. During tour, 30 people spotted waving flags, shirts, etc., in need of rescue from flood waters. Expect more deaths. Weather Channel reporting 11 total, 3 from US. NW area tour is tomorrow.


People are still getting sick from the effects of Hurricane Michael.
I spoke with a woman outside of the critical care facility where our daughter and her father are hospitalized. She said he had contracted a fungal pneumonia due to mold left over from Hurricane Michael.
There are still people living here in Tallahassee/Leon County, displaced from the Panama City/Pensacola area a year later.
