Bahamas getting pounded by Huricane Joaquin
Crook and Long Island getting bettered by 120 mph winds from a storm that is barely moving. 942 millibars. I'd say they are in deep
do-do. States preparing for storm.
I wish them all well. Not good to have that monster just sitting on them in the Bahamas. There will be massive damage.
936 milibars. Cat 4. 130 mph winds and only moving SW @ 6 mph.
The thing is huge! They mentioned this storm having lowest milibars seen.
Not to mention that the forecast for this hurricane was to be a 40 mph
Tropical Storm on Tuesday. Then it dropped 50 milibars in just 24 hours. No real warning for the Bahamas.
Yes, Wilma was 882 millibars, making it the strongest recorded Atlantic hurricane, based on having the lowest MB. They also rank them on windspeed.
I cannot believe that the Bahamas still have this monster sitting over them! Exuma is still getting pounded as we speak. I wonder where the famous Exuma pigs took shelter??
No news out of Bahamas that I've found as yet after having this massive monster sit on them for days. I can't begin to imagine the damage they must have suffered after being subjected to the winds, rain and surf for so long. Devastation.
This weather were experiencing now is from Joaquin.
Glad for the rain.
Hope this story has a happy ending. Doesn't look good now
You'll never guess which house and garage in the Grand Exuma Bahamas got pounded by ferocious winds for 2.5 days, along with torrential rains, and sustained no damage whatsoever. First test of the technology by real live hurricane, and a real dusie at that.
"Our home and garage are fine and came through with no damage whatsoever. We are so grateful. Just wanted you to know after two and a half days of 150 mph hurricane winds/rain, your product held well."
