Sure, there have been other islands that have been obliterated over the past few years by Hurricanes and it has been such a loss.
However, this Hurricane Dorain is certainly raising all sorts of records. I have been watching the hourly updates of Dorian's movement and it has either moved an average of 1 mph or remained stationary for nearly an entire day now.
Can you imagine for a moment if you were on that specific island and surrounding area that hasn't let up from the worst of the storm for that long...AND let me add the tiny bit of the winds being between 185 (even now only down graded to 145 mph)?!
A few hours ago they showed a video from a guy on the 2nd or 3rd floor of an apt building (that's what it looked like) and he described and showed the water around him on the other side of the glass windows/doors.
That reminded me of the horrific images from the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004 near Sumatra...or Hurricane Katrina.
Since Dorian is STILL stationary over/near Freeport, my G-O-D...I can't even imagine HOW much longer before this monster starts moving away fast enough for those folks to even breath a sigh of relief. I pray it is VERY soon before folks start dying due to buildings collasping under the water pressure for so long!
Praying for those in the Bahamas.

I was thinking of the tsunami too.
This is horrible!

The Bahamas covers a wide area. I was looking at the live cams in Nassau, and was confused that, though it was raining, there was mild wind. Then I discovered checking a map that Abaco Island and Freeport are over 100 miles away. So Nassau is luckily not getting much of the storm. I feel for the rest of the area getting pounded so hard. Seems they will need a lot of help once this is over.

I heard one weather reporter saying for a comparison imagine being in an EF4 tornado for 24-30 hours. Very sad the loss of lives and the total destruction and loss of homes & businesses that people worked so hard for.

As beautiful as all the islands are and also Florida and up the cost from there, I truly don't think I could live in those areas with the threat of hurricanes each year. My prayers and well wishes go out to all the people who are In Dorian's path right now.

It's beyond belief how horrific this is.
I heard someone on the weather channel saying it was like being stuck inside a washing machine that never stopped.

The latest update is that the winds have been down graded once more to 140 mph...AND STILL STATIONARY...no movement whatsoever!
If I was in/near Freeport right now I'd think the world was coming to an end...
That is absolute madness...there are just no words.
