What about the millions living on the floridean coastline that could be seriously affected? Worth a trashing of his resort there?
More seriously it's now a category 5 with 190mph winds at its eyewall. It's the 2nd largest / most powerful since they recorded such information. It's also unusual in that nothing it has hit so far caused the power of the storm to reduce. Most hurricanes lose strength and never get it back but this one has maintained its strength. The researchers will be studying the measurements of this one for quite some time I reckon.
Sorry for the off topic bit. I get the point about the resort being trashed probably affects trump which is good. It'll stop any use as g7 venue too hopefully.
At the time I put that it was still a cat2 I think? But yes not good at all considering its basically now straddling Florida then carrying on up the coast to North/South Carolina and Alabama.
It is very unusual, you would ave expected it to do the usual and drop in power but when I last looked the eye was over the Bahamas an it still had all it energy.
You would hope people have heeded the warnings but only time will tell.
Rolf your right, likely see some magical aid funding come out of somewhere *cough DoD* an not a cent from the wall fund. I would imagine he will take it as an excuse to refurb both resorts?
