    My thoughts go out to everyone affected by natural disasters. Stay strong!

    Interesting how he blames the storm for the incorrect forecast, rather than blaming the forecast for being so wrong.

      There is no blaming on this.

      I feel terrible for the people, but this is why you use common sense, and not just computers. I would’ve been out of there, or in decently safe location, hours before it came. They also are acting like it just *suddenly* appeared. 12 hours is a long time for people to get prepared…where were the warnings

      @trollololwhere are they supposed to go? Seek US asylum?

      Hurricanes 🌀 don’t normally move like that, and form to a cat 5 within hours— the weathers changing they had no clue 🕵️‍♀️

    🙏🏼Praying for you Mexico 🇲🇽🇺🇸

    “Rapid intensification” is when a hurricane gains 35 m.p.h. of sustained wind speed in 24 hours. Hurricane Otis gained 115 m.p.h. in 12 hours. Completely unprecedented, and now the new normal.

    If anyone tells you that we have a really good grasp on the weather, they’re lying.

    • Marvin Martian says:

      It’s by design bro. I’ve developed a new weather modeling system that easily picked this escalation up…
      Not a single entity will touch it. Not even NOAA, NWS.
      I don’t even want money for it! Free! Have it!

    • Lynda Endsley says:

      Offer it to Aaron Tuttle.

    Hope all are safe. Wish all well!

      Devastated looks like a nuke was dropped

      Nobody can keep safe in a cat 5 storm if unprepared like in this case. I have been through every category three or more times or sometimes even more with living on the islands and south Florida most of my life. I have never seen this fast of intensive strengthening ever however. Cat 4s and cat 5’s are always very bad and personally I feel bad for all impacted. It is not like other hurricanes with advanced notice to prepare early enough. Tropical storms however like this started out as, people normally do not even prepare for at all neither do many in a category 1 hurricane as those storms cause very little damage. Truthfully, the weather systems should have indicated something however with the hot waters still off the coast still should have been the strongest warning sign.

    So that means, the changes to our atmosphere, are happening faster than the models can keep up. In other words, we are probably in a feedback loop of increased energy creating these monster storms. CAT 5 in 12 hours. Insane.

    What a big damn mess

  9. nuplanner says:

    Perhaps you’ve heard of climate change? Expect more of this.

    I hope everyone can be rescued safely.

    All the crazy weather with so many twisted stories and first time unusual circumstances….weird.😮
