WIth the winds they are being hit with, I am surprised they have not become projectiles. I hope all in Florida listened to the warnings that the storm would engulf the entire state. Technology only goes so far, and in the end Mother Nature will decide where she wants to go. It headed to the west coast, but the east is still getting slammed. It has been reported that some on the west coast of Florida are mad at the officials, but they can only do so much. They did warn it would impact all of the state and to take precautions, but it looks like some on the west decided not to or put it off to the last minute.

Glad to know that the City of Tampa did not get the full storm damage or storm surge. Yet I noticed residents were on the beach when waters receded. Have people not learned from the Indonesian tsunami years ago to pay attention if the water goes away? It means unusual conditions exist and to be alert.

Will any mayor in Florida affected by flooding consider building floodgates that were used in one Japanese city during the 2011 storm surge after the quake?

Thankfully some humans were able to come to the aid of the dolphins and manatees trapped
when the water went out -

Irma is gone, but the clean up can't begin because of this -

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-41302157


Tropical Storm Maria was upgraded to a category one hurricane force on Sunday by the US National Hurricane Center.

It is currently following roughly the same path as Irma, and is expected to strengthen over the next 48 hours.

As a result, hurricane warnings have been issued for Guadeloupe, Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat.

A hurricane watch is now in effect for the US and British Virgin Islands, St Martin, St Barts, Saba, St Eustatius and Anguilla.

An important update -

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/hurricane- ... -1.4294418


Forecasters said Hurricane Maria has become a Category 5 storm as the eye nears Dominica.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday evening that Air Force Reserve hurricane hunter planes found that Maria had strengthened into a storm with 260 km/h winds.

The hurricane is about 25 kilometres east-southeast of Dominica and moving west-northwest at 15 km/h.

The storm was on a path that would take it near Dominica and the Leeward Islands later on Monday, and then on toward Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic on Tuesday and Wednesday.
