  1. It has rained here in Miami (heavily) about 90% of this month. Isn't the ground saturated? Being barely above sea level will make things quite interesting.

  2. Looks like Trump should have built a Hurricane wall. This Hurricane is gonna cause more damage than what a Mexican would.

  3. I understand you the present situation is not good but there is absolutely no doubt that the American economy is in good health and even if the American economy is improving all the time, many problems remain. There is no danger to the economies of the 50 US states, but the real and immediate danger now comes from general environmental degradation following years of neglect corruption and war. We also have a new threat on the horizon but even more deadly is a new threat called changes in Earth's Axis and orbit made the Arctic summers warmer and will cause many changes in the face of the planet. The water level of the oceans increased dramatically, the Earth was thrown off its axis, and new, devastatingly abnormal, weather patterns were spawned between 2019 and 2020 there is danger of a great flood on the east and west coasts of the United States. There is too much interference from fires in the Brazilian Amazon and the melting of the glaciers in places such as Greenland and Antarctica. As well as the Earth has already lived glacial periods, floods and sterile droughts, cycles by which all things passes by and always happens according with divine law. Earth went through its dark periods twelve thousand years ago, the earth was in an ice age too at two degrees of warming, the impacts in the marine ecosystem are going to be much more severe, restricting the rise in temperature to just two degrees over the next 10 years will take much effort. The glacial runoff pours from the land to mix with seawater and speed up the thaw, this glacial rate of adaptation to urgent new conditions fosters not only overwhelming crises but sets you on a slippery slope to extinction but sadly today this can't be changed within months in just a few months the changes will be under way and more noticeable, that's the danger the real danger.

  4. Attention !!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. Attention!!!!!!!!…This is Donald Trump due to the Florida and Gulf Coast devastation From Hurricane Dorian….I am hereby ordering all U.S. Borders south of the Rio Grande open for all Migrants and Mexicans…………..You are especially welcome to help rebuild my MAR-A -LAGO resort for the next G-7 Summit………….

  5. To my fellow US citizens in Florida: NE Tennessee has mild seasons, is pretty safe and not too costly to live in. If you can afford it, it's a wonderful alternative.

  6. Good luck to me I guess. I live in the area where the hurricane is going to hit.

    I see so many people buying food and water. Some people are even buying gas for their cars.

  7. It’s a Cat 4 going 10mph in the warmest waters on Earth…..it is feasting on that environment this is Katrina crazy

  8. Apocalyptic weather & heavenly signs are gathering with never before seen natural phenomenon setting records & pointing to apocalyptic disasters of the Last Days Biblical prophecies.

  9. Friends & neighbors in Florida, you are in my thoughts. Help take care of/look after elderly & animals. Stay safe.

  10. If I lived in FL I would stock up on supplies all year round just to be prepared. I mean, Florida's location is prime real estate for hurricanes

  11. Is nobody praying for South Carolina and Georgia everybody went traveling to all the beaches well not everyone and we gonna get back and school gonna be cancelled

  12. I’m confused in a hurricane no one seems to really care they all seem calm 🤣 the YouTubers I seen at least I would be soo scared but ig it’s bc they use to it

  13. Remember when it gets on land it will get a bit more weaker and it is coming from the east side (from what I heard) if you are on the east coast of Florida I advise you to be PREPARED! Because it's a Cat 4! and it will slowly weaken to cat 1 or cat 2, and I pray to you guys over there!

  14. News Channels should be advising people to put cycle helmets on kids and put them between bed mattress and other useful information that will save lives!!!

  15. the worst part of it is not going to hit Florida it's going to hit the Carolinas I know you all are hoping with your hate that you spread on the media that it will destroy the president's properties because you are a completely evil and innocent people could get hurt but as long as the president is affected you'll be happy you're a horrible hate group all the media is a horrible hate group legally spreading hate but that hurricane will not hit Florida as bad as we are trying to focus it on Florida no it's going to go up and all these people in the North Carolina South Carolina are not getting warned as bad and that's a shame

  16. Like taking advantage of people under the influence of alchol and drugs hey bell al copitis is under seal and team as navy seals

  17. Scientist prepared you a long long time ago. The majority human species never listens until the last minute. So don't complaint.

  18. It baffles me that Floridians don't prepare off season to avoid line ups and chaos? I'd invest in keeping sandbags in my garage, a generator and enough food for 2 weeks if I live in the impacted area. But then again, I'd think twice about living on the coast…. I rather stay on my hill and live safe.
