Canada looks like the last place that's going to be hit.

Maybe its extratropical remnant will bring rain to northwestern Europe next week? Too far out to tell.

Canada is now preparing for the hurricane in Nova Scotia - sounds like storm surge and power outages will be the biggest concern. Emergency shelters, comfort centres (showers, power supply, etc.), food, volunteers, strategically placed water pallets in the community, road clearance equipment plans, and so on are already in place.

It sounds very well organized, but power outages are pretty much guaranteed - which creates problems for everyone who has a water well because the pump stops working.

Yeah, it's booking it toward Canada at about 24 mph / 39 kph. Looking like it's going to hit Nova Scotia Saturday afternoon/evening and Newfoundland & Labrador from early Sunday. Could also have minor effects on Massachusetts and Maine Saturday.

Death toll in the Bahamas up to 43. They're saying the final death toll is going to be "staggering". They're saying hundreds of people are missing. The Coast Guard alone has rescued 295 people. There's talk of a stench of death in the air.

I said earlier how I thought Dorian would be about as bad as Michael. It's a lot worse. There's probably few if any areas that have been affected as badly by a hurricane in living history as the Abacos and Grand Bahama were affected by Dorian. First that 185 mph wind, which is significantly worse than a "typical" Category 5 (185 mph winds have over a third more energy than 160 mph winds), and then the fact that severe winds were around for a prolonged period of time as the hurricane literally stalled over those areas. I read that Dorian was a Cat 5 for 27 hours and the vast majority of that time it was pummeling the Bahamas. Plus the storm surge and 3 feet of rain.

It's literally the worst scenario I've ever seen for a hurricane and it's a miracle that it didn't impact areas that were more heavily populated, because as it is, with its impacts over fairly lightly populated areas, it's probably going to be in the top 10 for death toll of hurricanes in the last 40 years (since 1980). I hope I'm wrong.

And yes, this one is DEFINITELY getting retired.

We heard from our friends in Kitty Hawk earlier this evening. No real problems for them; just a lot of tree litter. Much better there then what happened on Ocracoke.

Aftermath aerial imagery now available, more added daily. This is typically just coastal US images. Sometimes hard to see damage but if you know the areas can help determine that. If can’t tell how high surge got then sometimes indicators can be a water line mark or if swimming pools crystal clear or sea water colored or sand in them, sand on roads, parking lots.

I'm hoping to complete a long full loop of Dorian. It will have to be on YouTube since it's like 1000 days long.

Here is the Past 84hrs of Dorian Sped up 10x to fit into a 20 second GIF. You can see how far inland the rain got and where the most storm reports came from.

This really shows how the storm intensifies over land, not water.

Amazing this is headed for Nova Scotia...I lived there for awhile.


Makes me wonder if there is a list of the 'longest' or farthest traveled hurricane.
