The hurricane Dorian to have hit the Bahamas devastating parts of the islands need help now and hopefully the UN and the relief agencies will get into gear and help those who survived with shelter food and above all water.
The hurricane now has lost much of it's energy as it heads north off shore along the east coast of America then across the Atlantic south of Newfoundland and finally over the cool waters of the North Atlantic as it heads towards Iceland as any other Atlantic depression with its trailing fronts with winds and rain crossing the UK mid week around the 11th.
I see there is another tropical storm recently left the area west of Africa in the South Atlantic heading towards the Caribbean so next week could see another hurricane develop and head towards Cuba.
We have a poster on here from Miami, not sure of they were impacted?Those places like Cuba seem to get hurricanes a lot these days!
Florida I believe only had 55mph winds and some rain along the coast not sure about the sea levels but along the Carolinas coast flooding form the sea surge and heavy rain has happened.
The reason the Caribbean catch a few of these is that they start off the coast of West Africa as storms, develop as tropical storms, there are a few at present in the South Atlantic all heading as they do westward an as they reach the very warm waters they increase their energy, once they hit land they lose some of their bit likewise as they head north up the Eastern seaboard of the US the cooler water limits their energy also.
North Carolina getting winds and flooding today ....
We're getting some pictures and videos of the severe flooding due to storm surge on the Outer Banks. This is Ocracoke, NC. Our hearts go out to ALL impacted by #Dorian. #nws pic.twitter.com/OAVxjJkUjj— NWS Newport/Morehead (@NWSMoreheadCity) September 6, 2019
