Thurs 10/8/2015 - update: On Wed 10/7/2015 at the 11pm advisory the NHC issued its last advisory on Joaquin. The storm is now considered a post tropical cyclone as it now heads towards western Europe in a much weaker form (likely will be around 40-45mph winds at that point). Future information on what remains of Joaquin and its effects on European countries can be found on local European news outlets and officially on the following two websites: North Atlantic High Seas and Meteo France.

I'll gather information/photos/videos on the aftermath of Joaquin and post a summary sometime this week for future reference purposes for this thread.

The National Hurricane Center has completed their final report on Hurricane Joaquin. The storm took 34 lives.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/AL112015_Joaquin.pdf
36 page PDF, 3.60mb file size, images are at the bottom...because we know that's what you'll glance at first :-)

And here is a clip of the El Faro cargo ship wreckage that was later found 15,000 feet down (went down near the eye of Joaquin near peak intensity after loosing propulsion).
