(2) Official FEMA PSA on Hurricane Prep, please RT:

(3) The first clouds of #Florence arriving now. Please evacuate this afternoon, it's the last chance to do so safely. Eventually even first responders will stay put until she passes.

(1) The only time Democrats care about the US citizens of Puerto Rico is when they can make political hay out of them.

At all other times they ignore the territory & it's extreme poverty, economic dependency, & rampant political corruption.

Hurricane Maria deaths estimate.
(2) Watching hurricanes #Katrina & #Harvey from afar was an experience that radicalized me to become a Hurricane Watcher, focusing on storms affecting the US. Harvey had the potential to be another Katrina. Thanks to sterling work at all levels, Katrina-level tragedy was averted.
(3) The fact is, #Harvey, #Irma, & #Maria were handled well by local, state/territory, & federal government. Far Left Democrats FEEL that Maria wasn't, but Far Left Democrats feel a lot of things, especially since the #TDS pandemic outbreak on 11/8/16.

(1) OK listen up. Hurricane #Florence is going to cause extreme flooding, wind & storm surge over a huge area. Due to shallow water off SC & NC, already sodden soil in ~6 states, & the storm's power, size, & forward speed. Explained in this brief story: axios.com/hurricane-flor…
(2) You can follow the thread I have going at the time, which covers all hurricane and storm threats to US territory. Current thread is below. I also have a couple of Twitter lists & links to other info sources there: ]

(3) I'm going to add below some photos and other things from my 2017 coverage of #Harvey #Irma #Maria and #Nate. That storm season was a historic event in American emergency management and community life. There were moments like #NoPoliticsOnTheBoat:

(1) Atlantic Hurricane Season 2018 was slow to start but is in full swing now.

#Florence is expected to become a #hurricane today, & gain strength before landfall in ?NC ?VA

#Isaac, #Helene & two depressions also present.

Time to get ready.gov ⛈️🌪️🌀
(2) At the start, #Florence looked like she would swing around past the Eastern USA, then she changed direction. 😦
(3) Both #Helene and #Isaac are expected to become hurricanes. 😒

So, it's Friday afternoon, and #Florence is a little closer to shore. A few thoughts, if I may. 1/
The latest model runs — and more importantly, the broader-scale pattern they are picking up on — suggest the odds of a landfall mid-late next week are going up.

But where?

2/
We're still in that window of anyone telling you they know exactly where #Florence is going is lying to you.

But, like I said earlier this week, someone telling you #Florence could be in your back yard is doing you a favor.

I'd like to think I'm doing you a favor.

Short thread on importance of even the smallest elections:
BEGIN
1) My small coastal town has 3 seats up for city council next month. #vote
2) Of those running for city council, 5 believe in climate change, 4 don't. All but 2 candidates GOP. 3/5 climate believers here GOP. #vote
3) Last city council election, only 20% registered Dems voted, because they saw majority of candidates were GOP and they dismissed them.

One thing I’m worried about—in addition to my family’s safety—re: #Maria in #PuertoRico is how #colonialism capitalizes on #NaturalDisaster
In the early 1900s US #businesses were able to monopolize #PuertoRican farm land after Hurricane San Ciriaco (1899) devastated the #island
#Farmers who were never able to rebuild after the #hurricane were forced to either give up their #land or enter unjust agreements

Après le passage d’#Irma --notamment à #SaintMartin -- on a eu droit aux habituelles récupérations politiques. #thread
Un certain nombre de clowns ont notamment reproché à l’État (gouvernement et/ou fonctionnaires) de ne pas avoir anticipé.
On peut établir une chronologie précise d’Irma grâce aux bulletins du National Hurricane Center (NHC) :

Como veis #Irma viene directa a Miami.

Pero antes pasa por las islas del Caribe, Puerto Rico, Haití, Cuba y las Bahamas.
