Tropical Cyclone Dorian

Ironically, the power went out here at about 2pm.  Not storm related but just pure coincidence.  Having T-storms here, but nothing any worse than our daily dose of liquid sunshine.

Bad news is that Dorian has been stationary over Grand Bahama island all day which is horrific. 

Good news is that it became stationary farther east than thought which means when it gets it kick NNW it should remain off shore of Florida and hopefully Georgia and the Carolinas. Still not pleasant weather for sure but at least the eye wall should remain off shore, hopefully.

Looks like it's finally making a move North. There probably isn't much left of any buildings or infrastructure on the Bahama island after the storm sat there for so long between the wind pounding and the flooding. They're still in cat 3 conditions after a couple days of enduring even worse conditions. There's probably large areas where nothing's salvageable.

Showers and breezy here today.

It looks like I'm under a Tropical Storm Watch now.  Looks like most of coastal Virginia is included.  My main concern is the potential flooding.  I remember the initial expectation during Matthew was 2-4 inches of rain, and we received between 12-15 inches of rain.  We ended up with a few feet of water in the yard (about 4 ft in the highest part of the yard if I remember correctly).  Not as bad as Floyd though.  I guess we'll see what happens.

It is very sad the destruction visited upon the Bahamas and particularly the Abacos (Hope Town, Green Turtle, Marsh Harbour etc...) by this beyond slow moving storm. Reported 185 MPH winds for over two (2) days. Few structures can deal with that kind of ponderously slow moving force. Coupled with the exceedingly slow construction process in the Bahamas, it has been and will continue to be a very bad experience for these people.

Florida has been incredibly lucky. TS winds is the most experienced in the PB area without loss of power. Dorian is finally starting to move N after the noxious painful waiting. Hope this misses everyone else never to be seen again...

@NC_Palms Stay safe up there! 

Thank you so much! I’m back in North Carolina and even here we’re all in hurricane preparation mode. But at least I’m inland enough here.

Keep turning right Dorian! It is amazing how it is following the coastline as it is, like the US is shaped for it, or that is how the SE US got its shape?

Looks like it is strengthening again, praying it stays further out to sea as there can be hurricane force winds in the Carolinas along the coast and flooding, stay safe!
