So...Hurricane Florence and Trumps comments about the Hurricane Maria effort? What do we think DL?

 

Trump's ego can't handle the truth, and Maria likely did kill that many people, looking at the hospital records and increased deaths, albeit many indirectly.  Hurricane Florence, meanwhile, is causing a lot of flooding, with the storm surge plus record rainfall. We'll probably see a lot more such events with climate change warming the oceans. What else did you want us to say?

Florence a no show. Barely windy.

 

 

Maria he'd get slaughtered on regardless.

Hardly a no show, just more about flooding than wind damage. Casualty total just 13 deaths so far; obviously going to rise, but not to too crazy a total. However, it may well make the list of top ten most financially damaging hurricanes, although I doubt it will make the top 5 (incidental note: 3 out of the 5 most financially damaging hurricanes happened last year with Harvey, Maria, and Irma).

 

Meanwhile, the one to watch remains Mangkhut. Luckily, Hong Kong seems to have avoided the worst of it.

Been hearing about Mangkut...whats the current outlook for that one?

The Phillipines were hit primarily in an agricultural area, so only 250k of their population were directly affected. The death toll stands at 49 and climbing so far. Mangkhut luckily didn't directly hit Hong Kong or Macau, although it was still close enough to blow out windows, blow down trees and stop flights; it's now hit the South China coastline a tad further West, and is currently forecast to blow itself out over northern Vietnam and Western China.

 

EDIT: Casualties in China have been very limited, courtesy partly of evacuating 3 million or so people from the typhoon's path.
