Hurricane Dorian: aerial footage shows Bahamas destruction4.5
Aerial footage taken on Wednesday shows utter devastation in Marsh Harbour, one of the first places in the Bahamas ravaged by Hurricane Dorian. The video recorded over the Bahamas' Great Abaco Island showed mile upon mile of flooded neighbourhoods, pulverised buildings, upturned boats and shipping containers scattered like toys. Many buildings that had not been flattened had walls or roofs partly ripped away. “We are in the midst of a historic tragedy,” said the Bahamian prime minister, Hubert Minnis. “The devastation is unprecedented and extensive.”

There will be a point when storms become so powerful and frequent that these islands will no longer be habitable. Its really not that far off.

I was thinking about moving to the Bahamas.
I guess they don't want anyone to live there anymore.

I remember it being said of the weather, in '87, that due to climate change it would becomme increasingly more extreme and more chaotic.

Best long range weather forecast ever.

The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
