Sen. Scott expects flooding, wind and tornadoes to accompany Dorian


AVOIDING DIRECT HIT, BUT THE STATE NOT OFF THE HOOK YOUR DEVASTATING STORM SURGE. WINDS, CERTAINLY THAT WILL BE HERE AT THIS TIME TOMORROW. BY TELEPHONE, FLORIDA SENATOR APPEARED RICK SCOTT. SENATOR, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME TODAY. GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK ON OUR PROGRAM. HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO ASSESS OR TRY AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IS IN DORIAN’S MIND AS IT HAS BEEN DRIFTING IN ALMOST A STATIONARY MODE FOR A DAY AND A HALF?>>WOULDN’T YOU LIKE TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT? EVERYBODY IS HOPING THAT THIS IS GOING TO GO NORTH AND NORTHEAST. THE CAROLINAS AND GEORGIA. EVEN IF IT STAYS OFF, BUT PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT THIS. FOUR TO 7 FEET. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE HURRICANES. TAKE THESE EVACUATION ORDERS, FOLLOW THEM. FOLLOW WHAT’S GOING ON. WE ARE PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE SOME TORNADOES. I WATCHED IT WITH MICHAEL. LOOKING OUT THE SIZE OF THE STORM. ON MICHAEL, THAT CAME UP SLOWLY. GIVING PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT THAT. IT IS A KILLER. WE HAVE TO BE SO CAREFUL.>>Bill: YOU. BROCK LONG WAS WITH US. TALKING ABOUT BATTLE FATIGUE. OVER LABOR DAY WEEKEND, PEOPLE WERE GLUED TO THEIR TV, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS THIS ROOM GOING TO DO NOW. A LOT OF TIMES WHEN THEY TUNE IN, SENATOR, NOTHING CHANGED. HOW DO YOU FIGHT AGAINST THE BATTLE FATIGUE THAT MANY MIGHT BE FEELING?>>I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE NEVER BEEN THROUGH IT. WE’VE GOT PEOPLE DOWN HERE, TOURISTS. THE OTHER THING, BILL, THEY SEE THIS. OH, YEAH, THAT’S THE WAY IT’S GOING. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT DORIAN IS GOING TO DO. I HOPE THAT IT FOLLOWS THE TRACK AND GOES NORTH AND NORTHEAST. STAYS OFF THE COAST. BUT WE DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF THEIR PETS. MAKE SURE THAT THEY REACH OUT. THE PEOPLE THAT MIGHT NEED SOME HELP. I KNOW THAT THE AMERICAN RED CROSS, VISITED THEM OVER THE WEEKEND. THEY ARE READY. THOUGH WADING IS HORRIBLE. PEOPLE LIKE TO GET THIS OVER WITH.>>Bill: IT IS GOING TO BE OF TWO WEEKER FOR SURE. YOU HAVE DEALT WITH HURRICANES IN THE STATE. PRIOR TO THAT, YOU ARE IN HEALTH CARE. I THINK ABOUT THOSE WHO RELY ON ELECTRICITY TO HELP RUN MACHINES OUTSIDE OF THEIR HOMES. OUTSIDE OF HOSPITALS, NURSING HOMES, ASSISTED LIVING CENTERS. THEY HAVE BEEN EVACUATED. BASED ON YOUR EXPERIENCE, CAN YOU TELL US HOW THAT HAS GONE SO FAR, SENATOR?>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THEY ARE TAKING IT VERY SERIOUSLY. WE HAD ONE FACILITY THAT COULD HAVE EVACUATED AND DIDN’T. PEOPLE DIED. WE PASSED LEGISLATION THAT REQUIRE NURSING HOMES TO ALL HAVE BACKUP GENERATORS WITH FUE FUEL. IF YOU ARE TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR SOMEBODY, THEN YOU HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM. I HAD ONE HOSPITAL, PATIENCE FOR TEN HOURS. THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WORKING IN HEALTH CARE, THEY ARE DEDICATED TO TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE. HOSPITALS, NURSING HOMES, TAKING IT SERIOUSLY. THAT IS ONE TOO MANY.>>Bill: WE ARE GOING TO SPEAK WITH SOMEBODY IN THE BAHAMAS. THE IMAGES THAT CAME IN YESTERDAY. STUNNING STUFF, SENATOR.>>THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS YOU INTERNALIZE IT. YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN FAMILY. YOU HEAR OF A 7-YEAR-OLD LITTLE BOY. I HAVE A GRANDSON THAT AGE. YOU SAY GOD, WHAT WOULD LIFE BE LIKE WITHOUT HIM? YOU ARE JUST SCARED TO DEATH HOW BAD IT IS OVER THERE. AND OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, WE ARE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN TO BE HELPFUL TO THEM WHILE AT THE SAME TIME TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN CITIZENS.>>Bill: AND THE CLOSING 2 MINUTES HERE, SENATOR, WE HAVE GOT MILLIONS OF YEARS ALL ACROSS THE STATE. TO THEM WATCHING, WHAT DO YOU TELL THEM?>>IF YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO BE EVACUATED, GET OUT. YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS THING IS GOING TO TURN. IF IT DOES TURN TO THE WEST, THEN HOW MUCH TIME ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE? ARE THE BRIDGES GOING TO BE CLOSED BECAUSE OF WIND? WELL THE WATER COME UP FIRST? DON’T TAKE A CHANCE. YOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY JUST LIKE WE ALL LOVE OUR FAMILIES. YOU LOVE YOUR PETS. NEIGHBORS. EVERYBODY JUST NEEDS TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY AND BE CAREFUL. FOLLOW IT. AS MUCH AS IT IS A PAIN. IF YOU NEED TO GO TO A SHELTER, THE RED CROSS IS THERE. THE SALVATION ARMY IS THERE. VOLUNTEERS ARE THERE. THEY ARE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING THAT THEY CAN TO TAKE CARE OF YOU. THE NATIONAL GUARD IS THERE. EVERYBODY HAS TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN THIS PASSES, WE CAN GET BACK TO A NORMAL LIFE, BUT IN THE MEANTIME, REALLY TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.>>Bill: I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING 20 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH OF SEPTEMBER OF 1999, BUT YOU MIGHT REMEMBER THAT WAS HURRICANE FLOYD. THE PUNCH THAT BATHROOM WAS PACKING IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE STORM BROKE UP AND IT MOVED TO THE NORTH. RIGHT OUT OF HERE. JUST CAUSE HAVOC FOR SO MANY PEOPLE LIVING IN NORTH CAROLINA. THAT IS THE UNPREDICTABILITY OF THESE TERMS, SENATOR. JUST YOUR LAST THOUGHT ON THAT AS WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING HERE.>>THE HOSPITALS DOWN IN MIAMI WHERE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO KIND OF CHANGE AT THE LAST MINUTE. IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE CIT CITY, WHICH ONE OF OUR HOSPITALS GOT DECIMATED. WE WATCHED MICHAEL, HOW FAST IT CAME OUT. IN TWO DAYS, IT CHANGED. NO ONE ANTICIPATED IT WOULD BE CATEGORY 5. SO THESE STORMS CONSTANTLY CHANGE. THEY’VE GOT A MIND OF THEIR OWN, AND WE CAN PREDICT ALL WE WANT TO PREDICT, BUT BE CAREFUL. I DON’T WANT ANYBODY, ANYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY TO LOSE THEIR LIFE. MY HEART STILL GOES OUT TO THE HAVOC THAT IS GOING ON IN THE BAHAMAS RIGHT NOW.>>Bill: YEAH, CLEARLY. SENATOR, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. YOUR PLEAS ARE VERY SIMILAR TO HURRICANE IRMA IN 2017. WE WILL SEE YOU WHEN YOU GET HERE FOR THIS STATE THAT YOU CALL HOME AND MILLIONS WHO LIVE HERE THAT YOU SERVE. SENATOR SCOTT, THANK YOU. BY TELEPHONE. 10:37 NOW. ATLANTIC BEACH, FLORIDA.

  1. The only unfortunate ones in this hurricane are those that live paycheck to paycheck…. So pretty much 70 percent and they're highly sensitive to price gouging. In good faith stores should not raise their prices

  2. Is trump finished with his 227th day of golf playing in the 995 days of his presidency and back to tweeting watching Fox News and giving unhinged rants on the White House lawn as he leaves for his NEXT golf trip

  3. We pray for the people in the path of Dorian we ask Lord that you protect them and ask that the storm will go back to the ocean and dissolve You are the creator of heaven and earth who calms the seas most of all we ask Lord for the people will seek You and find You and recieve You in their hearts In Jesus name Amen

  4. We only have battle fatigue because of all the Fake Hurricane Reports every hour. No one I know is leaving, because they have tried to evacuate people when it's too early. PEOPLE HAVE JOBS, PEOPLE CAN"T AFFORD TO TAKE A WEEKS VACATION. It's not free to leave and FEMA is a JOKE.

  5. Dear God for the sake of Jesus sorrowful passion.Have mercy on us and on the whole world.Eternal Father,I offer you the body and blood,soul and divinity of your dearly beloved son,Our Lord Jesus Christ for the atonement of sins and for the whole world.O Holy God.O Mighty God.O Holy Immortal God.Have mercy on us and on the whole world.

  6. Our prayers and hearts go out to all of these people in the affected hurricane areas, however they say that they expect "flooding, wind and tornadoes to accompany Dorian" I don't want to sound callous or anything but don't they expect those things with every hurricane?

  7. Ok boys and girls, its time for you to learn how in ancient times, they could tell if a hurricane was going to hit. Are yall ready ?
    THE BIRDS. If a hurricane is going to hit you, all the birds leave,ALL OF THEM. so if they say a hurricane is going to hit you, but you still see or hear birds, do not worry. On the other hand, if they say its not coming, but all the birds have disappeared, then worry. Stay safe yall.

  8. The storms are Man-made and are being steered !… They are Weather Weapons being used against you !…This is the demolition phase of the Restructuring of America !…. This is the forced Relocation of people from the rural areas into the area's where the Megacities, Mega Region's, and Smart Cities,, are now being built !…. America 2050 map…… WILDLANDS PROJECT map….Do the research. You can view the future……

  9. "I'VE NEVER HEARD OF A CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE."
    THIS IS THE 5TH CAT5, DUMBASS TRUMP.
    AND YOU TRUMPTARDS STILL LOVE THIS IGNORAMUS.

  10. The one good thing about emergencies like these is that is forces the public and government to work together, it shakes the programming of the men in uniform, the programming of us and them between 'us' and the government. the us and them attitude is what harbours acts of violence and hatred.

  11. The weekend was filled with violence, tragedies, and a massive hurricane sitting off the Florida coast. So what did Donald Trump do? He played golf. He played a lot of golf. The man can’t be bothered by the fact that this country is very quickly descending into Hell, and he couldn’t care less about what happens to American citizens

  12. So you expect the effects seen with a hurricane. I'm also sick of everyone obsessing with Florida. Florida is no more important than anywhere else.

  13. Pushing storm as Cat 4 when it has only ever been a Cat 2 that is barely pushing 70 mph winds. When will people realize this is not an emergency for FL. Where is the real news? Police have blocked out residence and won't let them back in. Pushing fear to do what, that should be the question?

  14. Why are some people saying that the car is driving around in the Bahamas are the 1997 and not 2019 cars with platesmany are saying it is caused by HARP just as the Japanese earthquake was caused by HARP

  15. Already downgraded "as I fully expected" to cat 2 Hurricane. No News here.

    On other updates, "Antifa" thugs have assaulted an 80 yr old disabled man in Seattle. Also California has given 500,000 illegal aliens sanctuary this year and the left bans the 1st amendment.

    😉

  16. I don't care about this crap. When are Comey, Strzok, Page, Brennan, McCabe, hillary, Jarret, blasey-ford, Rice, Obama, Wray, the Ohrs and the rest going to prison?

  17. There is no doubt in the world that climate change is man made. Maybe if you watch Fox, you think there is doubt. More then 170 countries are reducing CO2. How strange to call it a hoax or fake news, you are making yourself ridiculous. The only thing it is saying that there is a group of people in America that are not thinking strait any longer. They only believe what they like to believe.

  18. We should NOT trust the Department of Justice under William Barr. William Bar is a former CIA spook and DC swamp creature. William Barr is the wrong person to lead the Jeffrey Epstein investigation. William Barr's law firm represented Jeffrey Epstein and secured the scandalous Florida plea deal. The sweetheart deal was given because William Barr & Company told Alexander Acosta that Epstein was a CIA intelligence asset.

  19. hey Fox..why don't you report this?
    Trump and media outlets touted his great deal in saving 1,000 American jobs at Carrier. It turned out that he didn’t save anyone anything. Layoffs and relocation of their facilities to Mexico continued on.

    Those corporate tax breaks came with lies from telecoms like AT&T and Verizon, who claimed that the money saved would be going into workers bonuses and infrastructure build outs. Besides laying more workers off, as soon as any of the numerous “incentives” handed out to telecoms were collected, CEOs readily admitted they had no plans to do anything. And then fired some more workers.

    Companies like Pepsi decided to try and work more quietly, announcing “some” bonuses while laying off workers.

    Huggies and Kleenex used their tax breaks to pay off their shareholders while firing 5,000 employees! Winning
    Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp. abruptly laid off a few hundred employees. Surprise winning!

    When Tenet Healthcare announced that it would lay off about 1,300 workers, Republicans went into action to pass the big corporate tax breaks. After those tax breaks, Tenet announced it would be laying off 2,000 workers.

    General Motors announced layoffs as well as plant closures in November. Can you say w-i-n-n-i-n-g?

    Ford, blaming Trump’s tariff’s, announced plans to lay off lots of workers.

    Pfizer, already stashing tons of money offshore to get out of taxes anyway, took the additional tax breaks and cut scientists’ jobs, shutting down entire sections of their research.

    Harley-Davidson also cited Trump’s trade war tariffs when it closed down a Kansas City plant in January 2018. Start your engines, gentlemen … for winning!

    Walmart closed down 60 Sam’s Club stores in order to keep Trump and the Republicans’ winning streak alive.

    Citibank says that they could downsize about 10,000 jobs over the next five years. That may not sound like growth to you, but what do you know about winning?

  20. Stupid People that didn't evacuate to Shelter's on Island's 🚩🚩🚩 Now Dangerous Rescue !!l 🚩🚩🚩. What's there Problem ???

  21. It should be named FRANKENSTEIN, not Dorian, because it is certainly not a naturally occurring phenomenon. Mad scientists created that hybrid monster. And the gatekeepers in the media hype it up, as loyal puppets of the technocrats. "What's Dorian gonna do?? Did you ever hear such wacko gaslight ING rubbish. HURRICANES DON'T STOP!!!

  22. Look at the positive sound like a doom and gloom politician the sky is falling the sky is falling. Why don't you get on your knees and started thanking God that you miss the big one

  23. Exaggeration is FAKE! Why not report it as it is? Do media personalities really think that viewers are this dumb? Trying to read the mind of a hurricane is a wonderful and great idea, only a genius can think about!

  24. If you feel responsibility for somebody then you have to take responsibility.
    Gets hit or got hit already? Flood water flow's.

  25. Fox News: Flooding , wind, and tornadoes to accompany Dorian.
    CNN: White hurricane attacks minority communities… Trumps fault… vote democrat… Orange man bad…

  26. Isn't that wonderful. A politician tells us flooding, wind, and tornadoes will accompany a hurricane. I am so honored to have such a brilliant DC Sewer Republicrat representing us in order to enlighten us like this, aren't you?

  27. Only stupid hospital union leaders need a law to care for their patients, how dumb are they? Dumber than dumb can be… ban all public unions. And let intelligent and common sense peasants run this country. So sick of hearing how idiotic leaders are.

  28. The senator keeps trying to act like he is a meteorologist and the headline keeps attempting to give him credit for repeating what we hear on the weather report. This is ridiculous.

  29. Becareful who you donate to for helping out. Samaritans Purse is a great organization. They are always there helping people restore and rebuild.
