Well, I made it through Dorian just fine this week. Some islands less than 100 miles to the east didn’t.
This is not that Category 5 storm. This was apparently uploaded on December 10, 2018 and taken sometime before then. To my non-expert eye, it seems too large and fuzzy to be a major hurricane – that’s Category 3 and above. But any one of these named storms can be bad news. The geometry is compelling … at a safe distance, please.
