    one more piece of property to worry about

    Trump owns a multi-million dollar mansion on the Caribbean island of St. Martin — and Category 5 Irma is heading straight for it.

    A hurricane warning is in effect for St. Martin — a French dependency about 230 miles east of Puerto Rico — and other nearby islands, meaning tropical storm-force winds could arrive within the next 24 to 36 hours.

    Trump owns the 11-bedroom gated mansion through a trust set up to avoid conflict of interests during his presidency. The trust has been trying to offload the beachfront property for months. In August, its listing price was slashed from $28 million to $16.9 million, according to the Washington Post. (Ethics experts have worried a buyer could seek to curry favor with Trump by overpaying.)

    In his financial disclosure firms, Trump said he rents the mansion out, pegging its value between $25 million and $50 million. The five-acre estate is named le Château des Palmiers (“Castle of the Palms”) and comes equipped with a tennis court, marble floors and gold curtains, the Post reported.

    Trump is also associated with a golf course in Miami, Florida where the dirty part of the storm (on its present path – 9/6/18) is scheduled to slam into next week.

    Trump National Doral


    This storm will devastate Miami-Dade County if it hits at a Cat 5 level. I think most people hope the high pressure system will push it out to the Atlantic, before it reaches Florida's coast. We don’t need another Andrew.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    I prefer the Beach boys with Kokomo. Here's a version with the movie Cocktail staring Tom Cruise. I was once mistaken for Tom Cruise at a bar in Nana. This girl came up to me and said " Oh, you so handsome, you Tom Cruise" well what can I say some of us have it and some of us don't.

    My son is just back in Thailand after an 8 month stint on a cruise ship sailing between Florida and all those Caribbean islands which Irma will hit.
    He feels very lucky right now.

    as they rotate counter clockwise in the northern hemisphere the most rain will be dumped to the north of the cyclone ( though the penis ular will cop it both ends )

    a lot of the south eastern coast will be flooded

    I've never seen the projected course of a hurricane go so far inland. That map shows Irma going up to Atlanta!


    French St Martin '95% destroyed'

    The French part of the Caribbean island St Martin – the northern section of the island that is split with the Netherlands-administered St Maarten – has been “95% destroyed”, Daniel Gibb, a local official, has told Radio Caribbean International:

    It’s an enormous catastrophe. Ninety-five percent of the island is destroyed. I’m in shock. It’s frightening.

    I have sick people to evacuate, I have a population to evacuate because I don’t know where I can shelter them.

    Guadeloupe prefect Eric Maire said at least six people were killed in the French part of St Martin.

    The French overseas minister, Annick Girardin, was travelling to Guadeloupe with emergency teams and supplies, Agence France-Presse reported.

    The French president, Emmanuel Macron, earlier said he expected Irma-related damage to St Martin and another French overseas collectivity, Saint Barthélemy (St Barts) would be “considerable”:

    It’s too soon for casualty figures … I can already tell you the toll will be harsh and cruel.

    Hurricane Model Plots from South Florida Water Management Department.

    They control the water flow in South Florida. They've been pumping water (from canals) into the glades (away from the cities) for the past few days (bringing the water table down).


    Not this weekend in Palm Beach (where Mar-a-Lago in located),.....

    ^ Not looking good there. On a side note not getting much press there are major forest fires in most western states.

    Why There's No Such Thing As a Category 6 Hurricane


    Hurricane strength is rated using the Saffir–Simpson scale, first developed in 1971 by Herbert Saffir and Robert Simpson, a civil engineer and meteorologist respectively. While flooding can account for must of the lasting damage a hurricane can cause, the Saffir-Simpson scale is concerned solely with windspeed, using the max speed of sustained winds to organize hurricanes into the five established categories:

    Category 1: Very dangerous winds will produce some damage. 74-95 mph winds.
    Category 2: Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage. 96-110 mph winds.
    Category 3: Devastating damage will occur. 111-129 mph winds.
    Category 4: Catastrophic damage will occur. 130-156 mph winds.
    Category 5: Catastrophic damage will occur on a large scale. 157 mph or higher winds.

    The potential for a Category 6 storms seems obvious. Hurricane Irma's 185 mph winds are much higher than a Category 5's lower bound, after all. It's a moot point however, because the Saffir-Simpson scale does not exist to arbitrarily classify storms into tiers based on some sort of abstract power level , or even just based on their windspeed. The Saffir-Simpson scale is designed to reflect the damage a given storm will cause to buildings and other man-made structures in its path. Category 5 is widespread, catastrophic damage. That's not really anything worse than that.

    Perhaps it should be considered whether the American housing construction style (wooden frame clad by chip boards) is suitable for such weather conditions.



    However, can American people afford a stone house?

    Well yeah, contrary to the TD opinion of the US, new homes have, like, codes shit they are built to. With, like, hurricane ratings & stuff.

    Not much is going to stand, stone or otherwise, 185+ MPH winds.

    My shop in Florida is rated to 120MPH sustained winds and 140 MPH gusts, so they say, and its steel sheeting.

    Definitely not good for Hurricane areas and what hurts most I think is that they hit every 20-25 years in particular areas.

    That's a lot of equity and long-term sentimental things to lose.

    Houses are already full of mildew in the structure and wooden studs of the houses on Houston. The houses will rot.

    I expect a LOT of insurance companies, for those that even have flood insurance, weezling their way out of sufficient payment. Same thing happened after Sandy.

    In Florida, it's going to be starting all over again for people, just like Andrew. The insurance never returned after Andrew and now the govt covers it, correct?
