Re: Category 5 Hurricane Dorian Approaches Abaco Island


A few scattered reports coming out from Abaco (mianly before the other eyewall hit)

OMG you read some of the points on that page, Mike? They sound umm not to be political but they sound HIGHLY political in nature and suggest some straight on conspiracies. I'm not complaining because it shows some of the devastation however holy cow. :/

As for changing the Scale, the weather is going to be getting more intense and it seems like people don't respect H5s like they used to. Their homes don't all fly away in a normal H5 so whiy leave? We're talking thirty extra miles here though. The scale roughly goes up by 15's and 20's and then ends when Simpson roughly figures that should be about enough however we're looking at a storm that's now 30 higher than an H5. What if it goes 40? 50? It seems irresponsible to stop because people listen to the grade, not the wind speeds. Even local governments will only make people build homes certified to H5/157MPH which if you hear it, they BARELY make 157MPH. If you asked someone what an H1 speed was, they wouldn't even have an idea on it let alone the rest.

Let's stay on topic (on Dorian, right here, right now) and less on secondary or tertiary discussion/theories. Feel free to open up a new topic "Time for Cat 6?" or something like that in ASK/TELL. Thanks! - Ciel
