Track the most powerful storm ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean as it heads towards Florida.
Hurricane Irma, the most powerful storm ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean, has been advancing across the northern Caribbean, leaving a trail of devastation in its path, and at least 18 dead. It is now expected to make landfall in Miami on Sunday.
After hitting smaller islands such as Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesday and ..., the storm hit the Dominican Republic and Haiti on Thursday, and the Bahamas on Friday.
Because the centre of the storm has skirted the landmass of Cuba, meteorologists say the hurricane has retained intensity that might have been sapped by the island’s hills. But the 2.7m residents of Miami can take some - limited - comfort that its severity when it makes landfall there is expected to be category four, rather than five as it has been for most of its progress.
The strength of a hurricane is marked by its category on what is known as the Saffir-Simpson scale, which reflects the wind speeds – and hence the level of damage expected once the cyclone strikes land.
Have we heard anything from our precious Cat?
I just saw that someone in social media said that they are spraying a lot of southern florida to cause this.
Not yet VL - didn't sleep well last night. I've seen video and shots of Saint Martin and it really is annihilated. The feds will have control of the communications like they did though the Kaikoura quakes.
I've sent a tweet to Cat, G has scoped her on FB and left some messages at various places around the interweb. She will contact us as soon as she can come up for air. We have been sending her prayers and holding the energy while basically feeling helpless as this system bashes good people.
Thanks for your care and thoughts for her VL.
How do we know it is devasting the carribean? Has anyone lòoked at webcams there?
webcams - here's a tool on the Con Trail
In THIS VIDEO at the 3 minute mark, the narrator shows a comparison of the NOAA weather radar with the National Weather Radar as well as The Weather Channel radar map. No hurricane on the last two? What's up with that? I checked it myself.
What could this mean? Could these "natural disaster events" be constructions? I know there has been some discussion of this. How could that work? You construct a hurricane right off the coast of your target? Is that possible?
Holding space for all living things in the path of the destruction.
I'm not an expert so its hard to know about the validity of that clip you posted VL, but it makes you think huh? I had a go a trying to find ANY livestreaming cam still online in the Carribean but after half hour of searching seems they are all still down.
Yep...holding prayers too. The situation world wide is surreal.
Agreed, Cats PJ....now it's showing up on the National Weather Radar map and you can see the radar only reads a certain distance off the coast. Click here to see HALF of Irma as she enters the picture. It sure feels like an attack. The concern is where this is leading. If humanity doesn't wake up and call it for what it is, it may get worse and worse until our world is completely devastated.
It may be that weather/earthquake and volcanic terrorism will be some of the tools to usher in the New World Order. And...people think it's their own fault for driving a car and not turning off the lights.
If we are truly powerful beings in a state of mind-controlled enslavement....then surely there is some way to counter these attacks.
It is indeed, totally surreal.
Posted a reply in the discussion stream VL :)))
The US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) has issued advisories on Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose, and Hurricane Katia, all of which have the potential to hit land at the same time.
This is something Eric Blake, an NHC scientist, said is "unparalleled here and totally ridiculous given [the scale of] Irma".
Mr Blake, a hurricane expert tweeting updates on the storms, expressed his disbelief over the unfolding weather events.
"I have little doubt Irma will go down as one of the most infamous in Atlantic hurricane history," he said.
So scientists put geoengineering into it and it becomes believable.
