Looks pretty bad in the Bahamas.

What is the logic of "sending prayers" ?

There's one computer model, olive, that shows it looping around to ed, smacking him upside his head, and then joining the rest of them.

I presume you mean this:

Well, "olive" looks more like:

While the color used in the graphic is very similar to Vivid lime green (where you can check color names).

That Dorian storm is doing (did) something very strange for a storm like that --- almost stopped. Takes a whole bunch of explanation about the winds and all, but I suspect it might not be so good an idea to be popping into that eye with any sort of wings while those winds above that storm are acting so weird.

I think it has gotten mighty weak, too. But that won't cause less rain to fall in a whole bunch of places.

Actually, "rain" seems too polite a choice of words when it is one of them Noah type situations. That was the guy with that big boat, yes? Noah?

A monster hurricane just stops. Mighty weird. Them cocktails in the Bahamas must be very tasty, eh? I mean, tourists do go there a lot right? Well, Dorian must have decided to take in some sights. And then wash them sights really good.

By the way, folks, I was on the bridge of the New Bahama Star as a student studying navigation a few hours before it ran aground in Government Cut, if I remember the name of that little ship highway correctly. Well, not really a highway. More like a country road.

I hope their insurance premiums are paid up.

A total catastrophe.

There's some arial footage here too:

Donald Trump denies using a SHARPIE to alter official map to show Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama as he refuses to back down on fake forecast that state was at risk (but look what was on his desk at the time)
  • President Trump says he did not use a sharpie to alter a National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration map to put Alabama in Hurricane Dorian's path
  • But there was one sitting on the Resolute Desk and the White House
  • Map the president held up earlier in the day had been altered to include Alabama
  • Trump presented the map at a hurricane briefing on Wednesday morning, and the White House did not disclose that it had been altered
  • President says it wasn't him and he doesn't know who made the change: 'I don't know. I don't know, I don't know,' he told a reporter on Wednesday afternoon
  • So who was it? Scroll down for a list of who was in the Oval Office at the time
  • Aside from his sharpie, Trump had two pictures of him being briefed on Hurricane Dorian on his desk, and a picture of damage in the Bahamas
