I love nature, but sometimes it can be a right b!tch.

I hope you guys all stay save and that there will be a massive relief effort for the Bahamas as soon as possible.

the rise in sea levels as well as the overall warming of the Oceans most likely will make wide swaths of those Islands inhabitable - who will want to live in an area that gets catastrophic flooding every year.

The slow moving speed and terrible strength of the winds are just scouring those poor islands. Grand Bahama Island is going to be a wreck. Killing wind and flooding.

I have already had a rain band from Dorian...

I am on the opposite coast and about 70 miles N of Tampa.

I've been through two, already, since being here in in Orlando and I was in Miami during Andrew. That was a friggin beauty, #%&*$#! 30,000 dollars worth of damage to my house and property. House down the block had the top floor ripped off! Huge tree fell on a nieghbors Lexus and crushed it like a toy! Homestead, south of us, was practically wiped off the map. It was like a war zone, with Army units and helicoptors heading south every day. I don't ever want to be through one that bad again, EVER!

Grew up in Ohio, lived a long time in south Florida, now in North Carolina.

If you have to go through one or another, I prefer tornadoes to hurricanes (and been through both).
You get minutes notice before a tornado hits. With hurricanes, you get days to stress out.

Feel sorry for the folks in the Bahamas. They got kicked bad.

We missed Cyclone Tracey in '74, Dad flew us all to Nan and Pops in Sydney. Lost the house, Dad wasn't taking any chances luckily. A bunch after that when we moved back to Darwin when it was being rebuilt but they were only mild compared.

I live in Sarasota, we've had a little rain, nothing really heavy and we put the shutters up yesterday as a precaution because if it doesn't turn it's directly east of us, last year the storm passed just North of us and we had trees down everywhere. We are surrounded by 30' pine trees so ..better safe than sorry.

I am not sure. The first I remember is Donna in the 60's, maybe 5 more in Florida and maybe the same amount of Tropical Storms.

In Louisiana I evacuated twice, rode out Katrina in a boat and went thru maybe 4 or 5 more hurricanes (2 of them in boats) and the same number of Tropical storms.

Huricane David in 1979 for me. 50 miles off the Miami coast line. Lived in Bradenton Beach, Miami, and last in Lake Worth, all in the 70´s-80´s.

We had the remnants of Hurricane Hazel hit here in 1954. Did some damage here but Toronto and area got quite a bit of damage. http://hurricanehazel.ca/


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I’ve lived in Florida since I was 4 (1976) and I didn’t really get to experience what a hurricane was like until Andrew in 1992. Even then, I only lost power for a couple of days and the apartment building I was living in at the time suffered no damage.

And this one to add to Jim's.

Pretty sure most of this is Elbow Cay/Hopetown.

That flipped over spud barge says it all to me. HUGE storm surge...and it wasn't even hit by the strongest quadrant (NE) of Dorian!

Just looked at the latest track for Dorian and this thing just won't run out of gas! It's projected to pass near or over Nova Scotia and Newfoundland before it heads back out into the open Atlantic.
