Sat 5pEDT/AST,6pADT Dorian no longer a hurricane, “post-tropical” status now. Even though no longer a tropical system Tropical Storm & Hurricane Watch/Warnings will remain; a hard lesson learned from Hurricane Sandy where warnings were not put up for the NE US coast prior to landfall because it wasn’t “tropical” confusing public on dangers that still existed.

I would never post a CNN link but since Josh is speaking about his experience in Bahamas here it is.

In one breath he said "they know how to build things there" and in another he said "the concrete structure was collapsing.". I guess they forgot how to build with that one? But makes a good point that there were structures and walls that withstood the Cat 5

I can't imagine the force of 185mph winds outside. I cant
That must of been sick. He didnt mention the sounds of his experience though

Doesn't take a very spectacular tropical system to cause widespread flooding on an island that's about half a mile wide and fully exposed to the sea.

Doesn’t change the facts for the hundreds of people who live there.

True. And I wish them good luck. But make no mistake - if you live right there, this is part of the deal.


And for us who don't live there, when we evaluate these storms, then something like that doesn't change the overall fact that we got lucky this time as a nation.

Actually...Snow Labrador near Lake Melville / Goose Bay region of NE Canada probably occurring now, Greenland may get clipped by some as well.
