    Tropical disturbance in Caribbean may strengthen prior to approaching Florida

    Excerpts:
    A tropical disturbance that has been meandering over the Caribbean since this past weekend is forecast to drift northwestward toward Florida and may gather some strength along the way this week.

    The disturbance, which is also referred to as a tropical wave in the weather community, has the potential to become the fourth tropical depression of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season and may go on to become a tropical storm as the week progresses.
    Should the disturbance reach tropical storm status, the next name on the list in the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season is Chantal.

    Direct hit from Erin predicted here tomorrow.

    I don't think it will be bad (probably will be weakened by the time it hits), but, the power will probably go out, so I am cooking up a storm tonight, so food doesn't rot in the fridge.

    Hurricane Dorian is expected to hit Florida on Sunday as a possible category 3 hurricane. I'm not ready for it.

    Hurricane Dorian is expected to be a category 4 when it hits Florida!

    Bought extra batteries and some water and groceries today. I feel I still need more bottled water.

    Bought two battery operated radios and lots of batteries today. Walmart was still out of water, and the local grocery store was out of water but I bought milk, powerade, and gatorade, and snacks.

    I was told that the storm is "dire" and will be "catastrophic".

    All of Florida is in the red zone (flood zone). I'm far enough away from the beach to not worry about storm surge from the ocean but I worry about the heavy rains and winds.

    I expect my electricity to go out when the hurricane hits. Two years ago when Irma hit I lost power for almost a week.

    Instead of throwing out empty gatorade and powerade bottles I filled them with tap water.

    If you live in one of those wooden houses on the countryside I would advice for you to seek shelter elsewhere. To this day I'm still baffled as to why they continue to build primarily on wood over there in FL. Over here in the Caribbean we learned our lesson long ago, so the majority of the houses here are made on cement, to withstand even cat. 5 phenomena, and only the poorest of the poor dare to build on wood or near the riverbeds these days.

    In Jamaica, a lot of the poor people use cheap cinder blocks and steel bars to reinforce their houses. You would think poor folks elsewhere would do the same.

    I still remember the sheer devastation that Andrew unleashed in FL on 92'. It was one of the most horrible and wretched things I have ever witnessed in my entire existence.

    Where I live, all the rich people are buying up land, houses and condos right on the water. We rarely get anything stronger than a category 1, so you don't have to worry much about structural damage, but the storm surge always does damage... to the areas where all the rich people live.

    In a storm we had last year, there was a luxury condo complex under construction that was flooded.... they kept building the thing, and now rich people are snapping up the condos at $3 million a pop.

    It's funny, because quite a few restaurant owners who had their restaurants on the water moved inland. You'd think that the construction and real estate companies would follow suit. I mean, eventually, many of those properties will be uninsurable.

    I know. But people down there still build on wood, and build way too close to the shore.

    One thing that kind of grinds my gears is that my city insists on having trees on the road side. I mean, they have good reasons for it... this video is actually interesting:



    But, unless you have a garage or underground parking, your car is at risk. I have to pay more for car insurance because I live in the "urban forest".
