Yeah, kids who went through Maria in Puerto Rico have been quite severely affected by PTSD from it. And Maria passed over PR relatively quickly.

Dorian battered the Bahamas for *days* which will leave horrible psychological effects long after the devastating physical effects have been repaired.

Thank you for the last two posts. We lost extended family in the big tsunami and those working with them who survived never recovered. This is on my mind with every bad weather news here. Not read this thread for days because of that. All I can do is pray, and that I do.

Again, thank you

There's a separate hurricane season thread that might be more appropriate

Is 20 metres a misprint for waves in Canada?

Sounds horrific.

Spinning clockwise for starters. Elementary mistake. Poor effort at 'fake news'

We are still without communications or contact with extended faith family in Nova Scotia after Dorian decided to visit. Utter chaos along the east coast of Canada

some sites are attributing last night's gales and deluges to ex-Dorian with ex Gabrielle to repeat... we always get some backlash out here. It was very bad out here last night.

Still no word from family but we think we would have heard any bad news. They get buried in snow every winter.
