    Florence is not the category 6 hurricane the alarmists were hoping for, though more damage and death is possible through continued storm surge and flooding.

    Finally a fraction of Hansens promised sea level rise appeared-
    but just for a few hours.(and people are still complaining)

    Just an average hurricane, nothing compared to Hugo or Hazel. However that will not keep the media from hyping this. My god if Sandy had not hit at the absolute highest tide, there would have been no damage to speak of. However she was a super storm!!!

    Looks like Florence has stalled again and heading slightly SW

    It might wobble more NW soon though.

    In comparison super typhoon is travelling fast through northern Phpines,

    The eye has filled in and lost some power but will soon be over water again before a charge towards China.

    This is the biggest fail ever

    It’s not rare at all !

    “You can see there’s fish floating around in here, this is an extremely dangerous and life threatening situation.”

    I’m originally from just outside of Wilmington, NC, and still live in NC (now in the Piedmont). Most of my family is still in the Wilmington area and so I’ve been following things closely. It seems that even though the eye of the storm made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, the area between Jacksonville and New Bern are the areas that received the most rainfall and flooding.
    News from that area:

    CNN reporting on Florence

    The Weather Underground map reveals another bit of bogus reporting – the media report the winds aloft and is usually hurricane force. The WU sites report wind on the ground and as can be seen by the wind vectors is below 20 in most places and universally below hurricane force everywhere.
