Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 07, 2017

The outer bands of Hurricane Nate reached the Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi coasts Saturday afternoon, with the fast-moving system expected to make landfall as a Category 2 storm late in the evening southeast of New Orleans, the National Hurricane Center and CNN meteorologists said. ... The core of the storm could make landfall Saturday night around Plaquemines Parish in Louisiana, where Hurricane Katrina, a Category 3 hurricane that devastated New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, hit in 2005. Nate had been expected to slam the coast hours later, but predictions were altered as it sped up.

I just hope it doesn't cause enough damage to entice Trump to come down here. The last time he was here, he did much more damage than any hurricane.

We are supposed to have tropical storms this afternoon and tomorrow. You know what that means for inlanders. Tornadoes.

Actually it dos not 'speed' forward, unless you consider 21 miles per hour speedy:

"By midafternoon Friday, Nate was moving at a speed of 21 mph (33 kph). Its center was located about 125 miles (200 kilometers) east-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico, and was expected to reach the U.S. late Saturday or early Sunday.1 day ago

21 mph is pretty fast for a storm.

Harvey parked on Houston. Irma moved 10-12 mph.

Ummmmm that's pretty fast for a storm system to move.


Almost twice the average speed for a northern GoM (high 20s degree latitude) area storm.

Watch closely Puerto Rico.
New Orleans will show you how to handle a hurricane.

I hope it maintains that high speed and passes over quickly, Houston was devastated by a slow moving storm.

Republican talking points are a pack of lies. Lies sponsored by big Corporate money, in oil & gas, tobacco, pesticides and other carcinogenic chemicals, gun manufacturers, pharmaceuticals...an endless sea of lies:

Nine record hurricanes so far this season means nothing.

When research by the Harvard School of Public Health revealed that sugary-drink consumption was responsible for roughly 180,000 deaths worldwide, the fake mercenary research firm, "International Prevention Research Institute" (IPRI), published a review article, funded by Coca-Cola claiming there was "no link" between sugary drinks and cancer.

Profits over people is the guiding principle.
