This storm is a tragedy, and lives will likely be lost.  But lives were almost certainly saved by the early drumbeat of evacuations and preparation, aided greatly by modern forecasting, which has gotten simply amazing since I was a kid.


Maybe this will help bring some anti-science folk back into the light.

One can hope...

OlderGuy: disco ball: OlderGuy: fappomatic: My Hurricane Florence story:

Florence made landfall today. I got up at my usual 6am, made coffee and watched the news. Showered, fed the pooches and took them for their morning walk. After that harrowing experience, I drove down I95 to work in downtown Richmond. The walk from my parking garage to the office was wrought with greetings from other pooches being walked by their MCV student hoomans. I rode the elevator to the 6th floor and climbed the stairs, a one floor climb similar to K2, to my office. I barely made it in the door when a coworker proudly announced the arrival of a fresh pot of coffee (no small feat since it's only the second time he's done this in 8 years). Now I'm Farking at my desk with the rest of you slackers.

I'm exhausted. When will this storm end?

Westover Hills here... when is it going to start?

If you are in Virginia, I would assume never... seeing as the storm is not there. Much like it's not in 48 other states.

Maybe if we had 57 of them...  NC, SC, GA,TN, KY, WV, MD and PA will all get a taste of this..  the pressure ridge steering the storm west moves to FL this weekend, so "right turn, Clyde" will come into play and VA's Shenandoah Valley might become a pool... looks like it might ride the north side of the mountains on the way.  Time will tell...


Baltimore County, MD, and the sky's gray as all hell and it's raining. Not sure if it's from Flo or not, but still...

I think that people who stay when they have children should be charged with child endangerment.

And the adults who stay and then have to be rescued should have to pay a fine for endangering the lives of the rescue crew.

If you want to make a Dark and Stormy (or any cocktail with ginger beer as a star ingredient) I highly recommend Fever-Tree Naturally Light Ginger Beer, not cheap but SO much better than stuff like Goslings that are more ginger flavored lime soda than real ginger beer.


Bundaberg is pretty darn good, too, IMO.
 
2018-09-14 11:26:12 AM  

robodog: WelldeadLink: What flavoring do I add to my hurricane to make it a Florence?

Water, lots and lots of water.

To those talking about it "only" being a Cat 2, here are some numbers:
105 mph: As the storm made landfall Friday morning, Wilmington, North Carolina, was hit by a 105 mph wind gust, the strongest wind in the city since 1958.
30 inches: Preliminary reports show over 30 inches of rain in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, according to the U.S Geological Survey. If confirmed by the National Weather Service, this number would break the state record for rainfall from a tropical cyclone. (and it's not like she's done yet)
11 feet: Storm surge may reach this point in parts of North Carolina.

Luckily it does not appear it's going to take the worst case path of grinding just offshore and wind shear weakened it just before landfall causing lower than possible wind and storm surge damage, still a heck of a storm.


The rain gauge reporting 30 inches has been reported as malfunctioning.

"I don't need to evacuate! I've lived here my whole life! I do what I want. Whateva, i do what i want!"


Now it's been more than several years since I've been out to New Bern, but my distinct impression of the place was that most folks there didn't have two nickels to rub together. Evacuate? With what and to where?

Exactly.  For some it's easier said than done.

You can't label all the people who stayed behind as morons.  Some have to stay behind, some don't have the means to evacuate.

LOL, I haven't been paying attention to what Stupid has twatted. Generally I find out about it from Fark threads. Maybe it's become a crutch, but I find any news about President Sniveling Asshole is easier to take when I read it here first, as opposed to seeing it on the "liberal" TV news.
 
2018-09-14 11:53:48 AM  
Also, looking up that "dodged a bullet" thing was a kind of anger-inducing walk down memory lane and the Bush admin's shiatty handling of Katrina. In addition to the failures of the city and state.

And I've never been to Louisiana, so I can't imagine what people from there think about it. Probably not good things.

TurnerBrown: Gonna give a shout out too a great app called windy.
I'm in Charleston and it's been great to see all the projected wind speeds and other details. I got it when I was thinking about taking up kite-boarding. It's perfect for that or sailers. Takes a few minutes to learn what all it can do, but it can do a lot.

A good chunk of my family lives in eastern NC. I lived there for 4 years when the ex was in the Marines and got to know a lot of folks there. So many people in that area have lived there their entire lives. Their parents and siblings and extended family have lived there their entire lives. They don't have family outside the area to stay with for a few days/weeks. Hell, I met people who had never left the county they were born in. They're poor as fark. The cost of evacuation (not local sheltering, but getting the fark out of Dodge) on top of the loss of income due to being out of work until things are up and running is simply out of the question.

Hurricane shelters are free, counties will typically provide free transportation. Issues;
Most do not take pets.
You typically need to bring your own bedding and toiletries.
Typically no weapons, this is a hard one for the "mah guuunss" crowd.
No alcohol.
Dealing with other peoples crap, kids and adults get bored fast in these places.

And there is a big problem with income inequality, this country is rich enough that nobody should have to risk their life because they can't afford to leave an area for a few days.

Which family have you offered to fund?


The point isn't that it should be on individuals to help individuals, but that the system shouldn't leave huge numbers of people so vulnerable that they need someone to swoop in and save their bacon. You knew that.

frogmyte: lostcat: I was just reading about 100 calls for rescue from people in New Bern, NC.

Weren't they told to evacuate days ago?

Yes, but they're dumb. I have a friend who decided not to evacuate. If anything happens to him or his family it's his own damn fault. Dude's from Daily City, I think that's why he doesn't fully comprehend the danger. I imagine that's why a lot of people thought they could stay--New Bern's full of transplants who have never actually experienced a serious hurricane. Now they're making emergency personnel risk their lives to save them.


I think people who ignore a mandatory evacuation should be charged with assault or murder if any rescue workers they call are injured or killed in the attempt to save them. If you stay, it's all on you. Don't even bother calling.

From another article.

Schools and state offices in 26 counties as far inland as Lexington in the Midlands will close as of Tuesday, enabling schools to serve as emergency shelters and making school buses available for evacuations.

There were options to evacuate that wouldn't cost them a penny. People made the decision to stay and then realized they were in over their heads and trying to cover up their stupidity by saying they couldn't afford it.
