I was preparing for a nuclear war to hit the middle east at the end of this month. I need to hurry up and be certain I am prepared for a hurricane as well.

This just in from the National hurricane Center:

No matter what the future holds for Irma's path and intensity, the NHC advises, "Everyone in hurricane-prone areas should ensure that they have their hurricane plan in place, as we are now near the peak of the season."

Seems like good advice....Hurricanes are more frequent than nuclear wars.

Whether or not this comes to pass (and I'm sure I join you in hoping it will not), I'll be interested to learn where you got this intel from.

It looks to me that Florida Keys residents should assume HurCon 4 on Wednesday at 0800, based on NHC forecasts. That would mean Thursday or Friday morning for Jeanette Isabelle to assume HurCon 4.....

I can link the videos but that would be in violation of the forum rules. Even the addendum is a hot button.

I too expect "The Event" is about to occur. I know of several possibilities but I don't have anything more substantial than this feeling that I have.

Not sure you guys are right about the location. Middle East? war?

this country is definitely teetering on the edge of a major conflict in Korea. I am having a hard time seeing any daylight - real chances for peace - when it comes to recent events with N. Korea. sure looks like war clouds are brewing there.

Brack to Hurricane Irma .. another storm that has picked up " a full head of steam" as it travels over the warmer US coastal waters. This doesnt look like a good year for the insurance industry.

Don't read too much into things in Korea or the Middle East, these things have been going on for a long time.

I'm still prepping for a nuclear war in the middle east.
