Update – Hurricane Dorian

4 Comments

Storm Flooding

Hurricane Dorian was a threat to the state of Florida. The intensity of the storm began  on August 24, 2019 and dissipated on September 12, 2019. The winds of 185 mph were the highest on record.

It was predicted to hit land on the East coast of Florida. Although I live on the West coast, the indications from weather channels warned that the effects of the storm could impact the entire state of Florida. Everyone was warned to prepare.

We were inundated with rain which caused major flooding in many areas. The extreme winds caused some damages too. 

However, the storm did its biggest damage to the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands before hitting our state. We were spared more severe results by divine providence.

Our compassion are kindness is being tested. We must find it in our hearts to help these people who are in great need after having lost everything that is just your basic needs. They have been changed forever by their losses including family, friends and neighbors. 

Below are agencies trying to help these people find a reason to exist once again. If you can give something to their help them, please do.

Thank you, Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

    • You’re welcome, Janet. It was a terrible hurricane leaving far too much devastation.
      Yes, we have hurricanes but many states have weather problems. Let’s hope Mother Nature calms down. She seems to be telling us something. I think we’d best heed her warnings. Thank you … have a wonderful weekend. Issy 😎

    • My friend used to go snorkel and vacation on Abaco Island since way back when. She said it was an old fashioned non-commercial place to just relax and enjoy the snorkeling. Now, it’s gone. It’s very sad. Mother Nature is telling us to listen to her. I belive we should start to before things get even worse.
      Thank you for reading and commenting.
