    Unfortunately it seems that this current strong solar storm might strengthen this hurricane. Stay safe folks.

    Dear members of the Avalon Forum, here's a suggestion directly from my heart. Why don't we set aside all differences and "Pool" our energy for a common goal. This is what is being done on the TOT forum to counteract the hurricane Irma...too late for Harvey. Take a look here, because together we are very strong

    The four "most solid" buildings on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin have been destroyed as Hurricane Irma wreaks major damage in the region, the French government has said.

    I'm putting my thought energy into it.

    Indigenous peoples seem to understand how we can impact the weather. Rainmaking rituals, including those of North American tribes, are still practiced today. Back in 1998, Central Florida suffered a severe drought, which resulted in devastating wildfires. I remember reading in the local newspaper how a group of rain dancers from one of the Plains tribes had traveled all the way to our county -- in a school bus -- to do a rain dance. For them to have come all that way to perform their song and dance (focused intent), they must believe it works. It was so long ago, I can't remember if it brought rain to our county. Perhaps it did.

    So far the south part of PR, where I live, will probably get the less of the impact but it is raining a lot. Got electricity back which is amazing because of the power grid infrastructure. So let's get some coffee and keep reading.

    Virgin Islands issues emergency order allowing seizure of private weapons ahead of Hurricane Irma

    Michael Bastasch The Daily Caller
    Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:27 UTC


    © NOAA

    U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma.

    Mapp signed the order Monday in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands, subject to approval by the territory's Justice Department.

    Mapp issued an emergency declaration Tuesday and mobilized National Guard units to prepare for the massive storm.

    "This is not an opportunity to go outside and try to have fun with a hurricane," Mapp said. "It's not time to get on a surfboard."

    Irma strengthened to a Category 5 storm Tuesday, with wind gusts hitting 175 miles an hour. Irma's eye is expected to pass just north of the heart of the U.S. Virgin Islands on Wednesday and bring four to eight inches or rain and 60-mile-per-hour wind gusts.

    The National Hurricane Center is calling the storm "extremely dangerous." Weather forecasters say Irma is headed towards the Florida coastline, and should bring devastating conditions to the region in the next four or five days.

    GOP Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló both declared states of emergencies in anticipation of Irma.

    Scott said President Donald Trump "offered the full resources of the federal government as Floridians prepare for Hurricane Irma."

    Irma comes more than one week after Hurricane Harvey brought devastating floods to the greater Houston area.

    Saint Martin is slammed by 185mph winds of Hurricane Irma

    Kelly Mclaughlin
    Daily Mail
    Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:24 UTC


    Dramatic pictures have started to emerge on social media showing the scale of the flooding on St Martin

    St Maarten's famous international airport, Princess Juliana, has been destroyed by Hurricane Irma.

    The storm ripped through the airport on Wednesday, with 185mph winds blowing over safety fences and battering nearby Maho beach.

    Huge rocks smashed into planes, and boarding walkways were slammed to the ground by the downpour of rain and gusts of wind, which also brought loads of sand on to the runway.

    Inside the airport, which lies on the Dutch side of Saint Martin island, the check-in lounge was flooded and walkways were damaged by the storm.

    Parts of the building had broken off during the storm and were seen lying on the runway after the storm passed.

    Photos of the damage were documented by a hurricane rescue team, who went in after the storm passed.

    Princess Juliana Airport suspended all operations at the airport on Tuesday as a precaution before Hurricane Irma hit.

    Michel Hyman, COO/Acting CEO of the airport, said in a statement: 'We regret any inconvenience this will cause, but must stress that the safety and security of all is priority number one at SXM Airport.'

    'We will continue to closely monitor the developments of Hurricane Irma as it passes over our area and keep all our personnel, users and stakeholders informed of any further developments as these occur, via the various media outlets,' stated Hyman.

    Winair canceled its services on Tuesday and Wednesday, saying it would work to re-book customers' flights at no additional cost.

    Hurricane Irma has caused torn off rooftops and knocked out all electricity across Saint Martin, as well as on the French island of Saint Barthelemy.

    Banks on St Martin closed on Tuesday ahead of the storm, while WTN-Cable management dismantled its sites to avoid irreparable damage.

    All sites will return to normal after the storm passes and authorities give the go-ahead for people to move around the island.

    France has requisitioned planes and sent in emergency food and water rations.


    Social media videos show how the hurricane lashed the coastline of Saint Martin overnight with cars submerged in water. This picture is believed to have been taken at the Beach Plaza hotel on the island

    President Donald Trump owns a property in St Martin - Le Chateau des Palmiers, which is currently up for sale.

    It is unknown if his property was damaged by the storm.

    Meanwhile, a Dutch navy spokeswoman said that marines who flew to three islands hammered by Hurricane Irma have seen a lot of damage, but have no immediate reports of casualties.

    Navy spokeswoman Karen Loos says that some troops were able to send images of destruction from St. Maarten and another island, St. Eustatius.

    Loos says, 'You do see there is a lot of damage. Trees, houses, roofs that are blown out. A lot of water, high water.'

    She says the extent of the damage elsewhere on the island is not yet clear.


    The first of two Dutch naval vessels heading for the islands is expected to arrive at 8pm local time in St. Maarten.

    The regional authority for Guadeloupe and neighboring islands said in a statement on Wednesday that the fire station in Saint Barthelemy is under 1 meter (more than 3 feet) of water and no rescue vehicles can move.

    It said the government headquarters Saint Martin is partially destroyed and the island is in a total blackout.

    Electricity is also partially down on the larger island of Guadeloupe, where the threat receded despite danger of heavy flooding.

    French minister for overseas territories Annick Girardin expressed fear 'for a certain number of our compatriots who unfortunately didn't want to listen to the protection measures and go to more secure sites.'

    She added: 'We're preparing for the worst.'

    Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne said his twin-island nation appears to have weathered its brush with Hurricane Irma.

    He said there were no deaths in Antigua and preliminary reports indicated there were no deaths in Barbuda despite widespread reports of damaged buildings and downed trees. He said he plans to visit as soon as possible.

    Hurricane Irma is roaring along a path pointing to Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba before possibly heading for Florida over the weekend.

    President Donald Trump declared emergencies in Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, and authorities in the Bahamas said they would evacuate the residents of six islands at the southern end of the island chain amid fears the hurricane is hurtling towards the US east coast.

    A mandatory evacuation is under way in the Florida Keys.

    National Weather Service Director Louis Uccellini said that Hurricane Irma is so record-breaking strong it's impossible to hype.

    Uccellini said on Wednesday that he's concerned about Florida up the east coast to North Carolina, starting with the Florida Keys.

    He warns that 'all the hazards associated with this storm' are going to be dangerous.

    Hurricane expert Kerry Emanuel of MIT calculates that Irma holds about 7 trillion watts - about twice the energy of all bombs used in World War II.

    The Category 5 storm made a direct hit Wednesday on Saint Martin, the island where the Dutch territory of St Maarten is located. Some 100 Dutch marines flew to the islands on Monday to prepare for the hurricane.

    10:30 pm...got electricity but no internet at my house (it is a concrete house not on the coast). I can count the times in my life I've been scared, and this is turning to be one of them. These wind gushes feel like around 60 to 80 mph. My papaya tree is down, I guess no more smoothies. Never seen a system like this in my whole life. Be ready whoever lives in Dominican Republic, Cuba and southern USA.

    The papaya will grow back and plenty of papayas to pick up after the storm. in the meantime keep your phones plugged in while power lasts. Stay safe friend. Sending you positive vibes if that is okay.
