Hurricane Irma Slams Into Puerto Rico and Other Caribbean Islands

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/09/07/irma-s07.html

"Hurricane Irma is a category 5 storm with 185 mile per hour winds, making it the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever measured. As in Houston, however, the human cost of the new hurricane has been far worsened by the lack of any serious government preparations and the decay of physical and social infrastructure..."

Is the National Hurricane Center Underestimating Irma's Storm Surge?

https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/09/08/is-the-national-hurricane-center...

"We may be looking at a scale of devastation and loss of life that will raise some serious questions about whether adequate and accurate information was provided in advance to decision makers in Florida..."

Trust Counterpunch to edumacate us as to how the government failed to inform everyone that a big ol' storm was coming.

100 years ago, the cattle behaving strangely was enough to tell people to nail some old boards over the shutters, but in 2017, we can't just look at that radar weather map and make smart choices... someone literally has to carry us to the evacuation bus.

I've already read news stories that describe Irma as the most powerful Atlantic hurricane since the beginning of record keeping.  Is there more that needs to be said?

The real question is: Is Hillary Clinton behind the National Hurricane Center underestimating Irma's Storm Surge!?!

Hopefully the Donald will get to the bottom of yet another one of Hillary's conspiracies and finally bring Killary to justice. Lock her up, lock her up, lock her up....

No silly. Putin is behind it! (Didn't Louise Mensch tell you?)

This is just more fake news as the National Hurricane Centre obviously isn't underestimating Hurricaine Irma. So Hillary nor Putin can't be blamed for something that is not happening. But where is this fake news about the National Hurricane Centre coming from? Is Hillary waging a fake news disinformation campaign from her secret bunker?

Oh gawd, that sectarian piece of shit again! They devote more time and energy to destroying everything on the left than capitalists or imperialists. They have had vicious things to say about groups such as Black Lives Matter...
