I like this.

I'll simply use the, by now, time honored Trump response to tragic events, "that's too bad."
 
2017-09-04 10:58:17 PM  
This one is worrying me.  I'm really hoping this one turns hard north before it hits Florida, if it runs up the center of the state it could be devastating.

Hmm, you suck, and I hope you suffer. But, I still hope everyone is okay and can we please get a functioning government that takes care of these things.

Do you know how much Trump would milk that and play the victim. That would be sickening.

Last month, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas and brought devastating flooding to the region.

Wow, really? I hadn't heard that.

Yeah.  Now everyone here (Houston) is starting to freak out about it.  Check the surface analysis.  Front coming down.  We be cool.

I'd say emergency declaration is prudent.

Path does seem to be shifting east in the latest models, but we're a bit far out yet.

They better start evacuating the keys. They'll have to close the bridge well in advance of any storm.

Don't worry Ricky, I'm sure the invisible hand of the free market will keep Florida safe, just like it did Texas.

yes, but according to GOP evangelicals - this storm isn't happening, its all just librul climate change commie bullshiat.  also - jebus will save those who have been loyal, so its foolish to prepare for the storm 'cause the LAWD is ON DA JOB!  praise JEBUS!

I know this because fox news tells me this.

why didn't they start evacuating on friday?!  this thing is gonna be a pretty big storm, and now we've got every indication that its going to be another monster of a hurricane.

That kind of stupidity tends to fix itself in these circumstances, in a rather macabre but ironic way...

As long as the hurricanes keep hitting red states, they shouldn't have to worry about getting federal aid!

The weather nerd forums are turning darker over the past 12 hours.  Not because the doom and gloom trolls showed, the people who were right about Harvey are leaning 60/40 on this being bad.

Best case scenario seems to be Cuba taking it in the ass to weaken her before landfall.  Sorry Cuba.

I'm in Lee County, about 15 miles inland. We had flooding in Bonita Springs just last week. Plywood sold out today. Yeehaw.

The Lee County area was hit with a storm that lasted 3 days last weekend during Harvey. It dumped up to a foot of rain in places and caused some major flooding. Southwest Florida can not take a Hurricane right now at all.

Jesus said to wipe out all the liberal coastal cities, to punish the non-belivers of prosperity gospel.  Wait, that might be the wrong Jesus.

Having somebody versed in disaster management as head of FEMA is the one not bad thing Trump has done.

I think a lot of it has to do with the GOP not wanting another Katrina fiasco on their watch.

The path was really unclear last Friday, and it's still pretty unclear. See the spaghetti maps above.

Evacuations can be almost as dangerous as the hurricanes themselves. 100 people died in the Rita evacuation, almost as many as died in the hurricane. You've got to be pretty sure about the path before you tell people to grab what they can and get the hell out and leave their homes available to looters and suck, and risk them dying in the heat or running out of gas in the traffic jam.

Our street turned in to a river twice in the past 2 weeks. Thankfully, the area drains pretty quickly once the rain stops. I'm not looking forward to seeing how it fares against a hurricane.

They just move around away from the storm. Happened to us in Wilma. Missed a few ports and had a stop over in Puerto Rico to pick up extra fuel. Then just waited it out at sea. They finally docked and got us off board and we got stranded in little gay motel  near the beach in Fort Lauderdale when Wilma went across the state to exit by FTL.
 It almost got hit by the construction crane that blew off the Trump Tower that was going up nearby at the time.
Your friends will be fine on the boat...however, once they dock it's 'okay, bye'...and all the flights are canceled.

non-refundable tickets, and it's pretty likely the captain doesn't want to die, either, so he'll steer clear of any risk.
