Not sure if it has been posted but the Weather Channel has given us a glimpse of what levels a Hurricane looks like. I also believe the Cat 5 in this vid has been a bit under rated.

I'm typically not a praying person, but I'll be praying for people in Florida this weekend.

Update: on NASA ISS Sat Image/Video of Irma/Jose massive even from way up above. Jose is first, then Irma. Even the Sat has a hard time seeing the entirety of Irma. 0.0

I've seen that before, lot of the houses near where I grew up in Florida are all reinforced cinder block with a brick outer layer, that have stood up to Cat 3 without a single hiccup.

Yea that would be the ticket, block houses typically do well in hurricanes, however at 4 and 5 will peel the roofs off of most houses at that point the only thing left will be those block walls.



Here's what happened in Burbuda. Barbuda’s Prime Minister takes aerial tour of Irma destruction – Island ‘is literally rubble’

Wow. That's a good video.
I've called and sent word to my friends and family in FL to come on up and just get out for awhile. They/We've been through hurricanes in the past and I know they won't come. I'm not real sure what I would do with all of them but, we could stack up like cordwood. I have tents also. I think since I've been away, I'm much more nervous and anxious about hurricanes now. It's sort of 'different' when you live there.

Looks bad ass.
It would likely be worth the investment (I'm assuming it's more expensive than block/brick) if one lived in a prone area.

I'm certain it is more than concrete block. Even at double the cost, it would pay for it self as seen in the scenarios in the video. I first saw this on a friends Facebook page, and had to search Youtube to find this one 'sans' the narration. At 2:39 the skeleton for roof tiles is mounted. The tiles bolted to the structure.

NASA Satellite of Irma. Mind blowing how big this thing is.

I would just live on a boat, and go where the hurricane is not....I'm a bum in that way. But my house would still be good to go.

Something even more eye opening is the fact that with a roughly 70 mile wide eyeball, its bsically a 70 mile wile wide EF-2, nearly an EF-3. Thats, incredible. That doest include how for out the hurricane force winds (74 mph) go outwards from the center. MY prayers, and have helped load MRE's, water, diapers, and baby food into a semi at my local grocery store.

Just give me one of these and a couple of empty bottles to pee into.

Wow..I never thought if it that way..

If I understand that right you are saying the eye is the equivalent of a 70 mile wide tornado?

Just crazy.

That first video of wind damage was cool. Should have ended with a storm surge, the real slate wiper...

It's all down to fluid dynamics. When liquids and gases are in motion, the centre of a moving column will move faster than the edges due to reduced friction. The classic example is holding a bag of spaghetti and dipping it to one side. Those strands at the top and center will slide further than at the edges due to reduced friction. This happens in rivers too. With a hurricane you have all the humid air being made to spin due to cross-winds. All that kinetic energy gets stored as rotational momentum just like one of those "spinner" toys.

I suppose it beats the alternative.

Something I never knew about Hurricanes. The top of Irma is minus -80 F, wow!

www.nasa.gov...



Infrared MODIS data showed two areas with very cold cloud top temperatures of strong thunderstorms. They were around center of circulation and in a band of thunderstorms north of the center, where temperatures were as cold as minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.2 Celsius). Temperatures that cold indicate strong uplift in the storm and cloud tops high into the troposphere. NASA research has shown that storms with cloud tops that cold have the ability to generate heavy rain.
