Huh huh! That's all I can say. Sad for the deaths and destroyed islands.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

That's so disturbing. We do not have control over natural calamities, but it makes one worried and sad to see all the devastation.

We checked and friends have gone from FL - some to Atlanta. It may go right up there too but it is hoped it would not be as strong by then. Also, let's hope nobody decides to try to ride this one out.

I know what I think about the CDN couple who flew to Saint Maarten on Sunday, Sept 3 and are now screaming there are no flights out.

Since Irma started near Cape Verde Island August 30th or so, it had the whole Atlantic to cross to pick up steam over warmer water than previously. They say those are two reasons why it became a monster storm. Two more hurricanes are moving up and there's a tropical storm on the Gulf in Mexico.

Hurricane season used to be June 1 to November 30th but there have been a couple in Jan and Feb and the fear is that it may end up being all year.

Houston was warned twenty years ago about building on flood plains so let's hope that in spite of rules being relaxed again about that, people will stop building and rebuilding their cities and homes where that danger exists. Miami and other cities have many more people there now as well and Miami is barely above sea level.

Seems to me LeonAzul is from FL - hope he checks in here. I can't remember who else on TFD is in its path, but I hope all are out and safe.

Earthquake measurements go up exponentially - 8.2 on the Richter scale is huge.

Our thoughts go out to all caught up in these natural disasters.

The 5 living ex presidents of the US have started a movement to collect money for the victims of the hurricanes. It is called "The One America Appeal".

Let's hope there will be movements for financial aid for the islands as well - those areas may even already have been in financial straits trying to recuperate from previous storms and earthquakes.

That's hilarious, Maryam. I looked at the bottom for the satire label but didn't see one. Although it did say Charlotte Stories, focused on telling the world how awesome Charlotte is.
