Ghost Towns Await Florence

[SIZE=6]6 Years Ago, North Carolina Chose To Ignore Rising Sea Levels. This Week It Braces For Disaster. [/SIZE]

Confronted with Hurricane Florence, North Carolina prepares for a state of emergency.

This is the before…

Look out for the after later today.

In 2012, North Carolina legislators passed a bill that barred policymakers and developers from using up-to-date climate science to plan for rising sea levels on the state’s coast.

Now Hurricane Florence threatens to cause a devastating storm surge that could put thousands of lives in danger and cost the state billions of dollars worth of damage.

The hurricane, which is expected to make landfall on Friday, is shaping up to be one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast. Residents of North Carolina’s Outer Banks and mainland coasts have already been ordered to evacuate.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in both North and South Carolina, and a Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator said that the Category 4 hurricane will likely cause “massive damage to our country.”

And the rise in sea levels, experts say, is making the storm surge worse.


Yenyewe sisi dio tuko the promised land

Wueh! Tuseme hitwo tunyumba kuna venye next week…eh…ok…

Uko wapi ni hamie.

How can someone bar common sense?

Kwa bobi whine

@M2Random I hope you bought crude oil futures on Monday. We(currency traders) got into Canadian Dollar by then. By landfall when everyone is buying the news is too old.

Thats ancient Egypt… Where Israelite (bobi) balls used to be crashed

Angalia huyu mjinga wao. He’s almost claiming credit for the biggest and most devastating hurricane to hit the East Coast.

@This was addressed to @patco, @Purple and their alternates. The man with small hands and a fingerling between his legs is obsessed with bigness.

si huu ni ujinga

umesahau Tsunami iliwaponda ponda hapo Mtwapa

Tsunami on the EA coast was a very weak aftershock. Asia and Pacific bore bore the brunt.

Do you know what’s a tsunami?

You wouldn’t know it from his braggadocio (how many times can you say ‘tremendously’ in one sentence?), but the dingbat has yet another a scandle on his hands because he weakened FEMA, the disaster management agency.

[SIZE=5]Homeland Security Shifted $10 Million From FEMA For Immigrant Crackdown, Senator Says[/SIZE]

“This is a scandal,” Oregon Democrat Jeff Merkley said as the Carolinas brace for Hurricane Florence.

The Trump administration transferred nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier this year to fund immigrant detention and deportation efforts, according to a document released Tuesday by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore).

The lawmaker first shared the documents with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, saying that the Department of Homeland Security requested the money “just as hurricane season [was] starting” and as it was attempting to fund Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the midst of its new “zero tolerance” immigration policy. The controversial crackdown resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents, hundreds of whom have yet to be reunited.

“This is a scandal. At the start of hurricane season — when American citizens in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are still suffering from FEMA’s inadequate recovery efforts — the administration transferred millions of dollars away from FEMA,” Merkley said in a statement to HuffPost. “And for what? To implement their profoundly misguided ‘zero tolerance’ policy.

It wasn’t enough to rip thousands of children out of the arms of their parents — the administration chose to partly pay for this horrific program by taking away from the ability to respond to damage from this year’s upcoming and potentially devastating hurricane season.”


What’s the big fuse here, the Carolinas are synonymous with Hurricanes. They even named their Hockey team as the Hurricanes, NC that is.
As for the NC assembly barring that technology, it meant that, they don’t entertain the school of thought about Global warming. Most probably, the house had a majority Republicans.

Why are hurricanes given female names like Katrina or Florence or is it because of the drama

Terrible waste!!
