    Can you imagine a wind at 225 MPH?

    That's the gust speeds on Hurricane Dorian. Still going due west and about 145 miles from Florida. The weather folks that the wind speed is like a "4" on the tornado scale.

    In Kauai Hurricane Iniki had gusts to 225, stalled over the island, and stripped every tree. the storm surge combined with a high tide hit 30'. the storm waves in Jurassic Park were filmed by the crew during Iniki.

    Went through hurricane Charlie. 172 constant winds so I can relate. Don't want to do it again.

    The turn North will come on Tuesday, when and where are the big questions. In the meantime it is grinding West at 4 mph.

    Glad I'm on the West coast, far away from Dorian (and Trump, who said Dorian will not impact Alabama).

    This morning its pounding the Bahamas at 175 MPH. Before moving out west to Colorado then New Mexico, I lived in Florida for 25 years. This does not look good.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
