    LOL Excellent observation and comparison.

    Notice that it's the COVID deniers who are mainly poo-poohing the dangers of Ian.

    At the moment, Ian is reported to be 2MPH short of a Cat 5. No doubt it's just a fucking Lefty Liberal Global Warming hoax and this is just a little high tide and thunderstorms. Do you plan on going to be beach today? Windsurfing?


    I wonder if Pat Robertson is going to blame this on LGBTQ ppl, CRT, or teachers who are "grooming" little Florida kids for gawdonlyknowswhat?

    Harboring such anger and behaving that way is a choice. Trolling 24/7.

    I hope it is zero, even if that means we still have to read the rantings and screeches of Minty. Hopefully most ppl have either evacuated or are not in its path.

    Agreed. The west coast of Florida, especially Naples and Port Charlotte, have a lot of money.

    We'll all know by Friday how well the Floridian infrastructure holds up.

    It’s as insane as the Trumpper claims about Covid! And I happen to know this storm is real.

    It would be unsurprising if he did....although I think his mind has deteriorated enough he might not realize what is happening.

    Hope is nice, especially as the waters are rising around one's home and family, but realists look at the facts.

    It's not rocket science to understand that if someone builds a home on a former swamp in prime hurricane country, that they will face a hurricane at some point.

    https://www.reuters.com/business/env...im-2022-09-28/

    Hurricane Charley, 2004
    Charley was an unexpectedly powerful hurricane, rapidly developing into a Category 4 storm just before making landfall at Cayo Costa, an island of Florida's Gulf Coast. Nine people were directly killed by the storm and an estimated $6.8 billion was lost, according to the NHC.


    Hurricane Wilma, 2005
    The death toll of Wilma was thankfully low — five people directly — for a Category 4 storm. Even so, the bill for the hurricane’s property damage was particularly high at an estimated $20.6 billion in the U.S. Wilma ravaged the southern part of the state, generating wind gusts of more than 100 mph (161 kph).

    Hurricane Irma, 2017

    Irma was unique for its extensive size and slow movement, which exacerbated the storm’s damaging winds and heavy rainfall. It left 6.5 million customers without power in the state and caused an estimated $50 billion in property damage, making it one of the costliest hurricanes in U.S. history. Seven people died from the storm and 80 indirectly, according to an NHC tally.

    Hurricane Michael, 2018
    Michael was the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in the Florida Panhandle, according to the National Weather Service. Wind and storm surge caused catastrophic damage, particularly in the Panama City Beach and Mexico Beach areas. Eight direct fatalities were reported: seven in Florida and one in Georgia. In addition, 43 indirect deaths were attributed to the storm.

    Odd behavior for someone who lives on the "dirty" side of the storm track. But then what is said publicly has zero to do with what is going on privately. You can bet it's 100% different.

    Express made some good points about hurricane-resistant building codes in FL. But -- a great number of FL citizens live in older homes, mobiles, and other substandard (not storm-resistant) housing, particularly outside of cities. I hope they had the sense to get the f out of Dodge.
