The Ian hurricane is a powerful storm that is being dissected by Florida, cutting down the ferocity of the eastern half of this hurricane as it reaches land. The western half of the storm, on the other hand, not only has floods of heavy rain but worse, has a post-eye of the storm wall of ocean waters that will violently flood and perhaps wipe out, most of the housing and such, on the shoreline communities just like so many previous Gulf hurricanes in the past. I hope everyone flee the coastal areas south of Tampa.
The sea level, the winds are reaching up to 100 mph which is middle of a category 2 hurricane. This is significant on land because the winds won’t be enough to destroy buildings. But the problem is the higher winds higher up in the hurricane and how this interacts with the ocean.
In terms of mean elevation, Florida is the third lowest state, with only Delaware and Louisiana being lower. Florida has a mean elevation of just 100 feet (30 m). Its highest point has an elevation of 345 feet (105 m), while its lowest point is the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, which are at sea level.
At 300 feet, the hurricane winds pick up significantly going at 120 mph which is very serious:
Since 100% of Florida in this region is barely over 50 to 75 feet above sea level, the winds won’t be as destructive as if this were hitting, say, Georgia or the Carolinas. Higher elevations means higher winds. This is true where I live, too.
I live in the mountains and storms including hurricanes, are funneled up the various valleys and hits higher speeds depending on the direction of the wind. Of course, it isn’t just the wind, it is the tidal surges that takes out homes and kills people. The tidal surge can wipe out everything in its path.
Tidal surges even with no storms can kill thousands of people like in SE Asia when an earthquake killed many thousands of people from Indonesia to India and Sri Lanka and Thailand, etc. This is why removing people from potential tidal surges is so important.
With hurricanes, the arrival of the second half of the hurricane right after the eye passes, is where the deadly tidal surges happen.
The destruction was far worse in the second half of the hurricane that destroyed Galveston EXACTLY this same day, over 100 YEARS AGO. A huge sea wall was built after the massive hurricane to stop storm surges in Galveston. All ocean surges, whatever the cause, are some of the most deadly events on par with volcanic eruptions, massive fires, etc.
Florida is very vulnerable to tidal surges. For example, right now at 7:30 am, Sept. 28, the high tide is coming in Fort Myers. Right now, the winds of the hurricane are moving crosswise sideways of the high tide lunar event.
The grave danger is when the eye passes over or near the coastline heading east/northeastwards, then the most powerful winds of the hurricane which is always on the leading edge of the second half of the hurricane to cause tidal surges that are very deadly. At that time, the winds blow straight into the coastline.
9/27/2022: The tide now in Old Port Tampa, FL is falling. Next high tide is 4:03 am. Next low tide is 10:20 pm.
Today’s high tide in Tampa will be 7 pm tonight. The supposed impact of this storm is expected to arrive roughly at 4 pm to…8 pm which is the window of high tide events! The storm is slowing down moving northwards and is increasingly turning eastwards so perhaps we will see it hit later than 10 pm which would definitely be better than right at high tide, the worst possible time.
We are still very near the fall equinox which encourages high tidal high tides. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/weather/hurricane/article266366686.html
And the convergence of Hurricane Ian with king tide season means extra concern about more flooding around the state. Hurricane Ian is expected to pass west of the Florida Keys late Tuesday and make its way up the west coast of Florida by the end of the week.
King tide is when the tides are at the highest in the season. These high tides are a natural occurrence during new and full moons but are exacerbated by climate change.
Everything these days have to be ’caused by climate change’. Good lord, this is so insane. Tidal surges caused by the MOON happen in all hurricanes and if coinciding with equinoxes and high tides, then we get super flooding! Duh! This happens during warm and cold cycles in weather.
Everything is ‘global warming’ with our ruling elites who fly private jets, live in vast multiple palaces and have yachts and so forth, consuming everything, everywhere and exhaling CO2 all over the place while screaming at us about ‘too much CO2 from peasants wanting to be warm or eat food.’ Good lord.
Word of warning; if people insist on living at sea level where tsunamis and hurricanes wipe out everything in their paths, don’t be surprised if it happens. Just like living right on top of an earthquake fissure. It will eventually happen.
Both Biden and his silly sidekick insist on totally avoiding Texas and yes, Florida, these days. They will not talk about the illegal alien invasion they are orchestrating. The entire Bilderberg gang is bent on refusing to talk about or do anything about illegal aliens invading North America and Europe.
Blacks, including blacks who came to the US long after slavery, want slavery money for themselves and are very angry, some of them, that illegal aliens are getting many things now from Democrats and the DNC depends entirely on the inner city black voters as their power base while giving as little as possible to these freeloaders.
Black men are demonstrating for the right to have shoot outs with cops! This won’t end well with them since even dimwitted liberals are figuring out, let blacks kill cops and stop cops from stopping blacks means white liberals will be looted, raped and burned by their own political allies. Talk about el stupido!

If they want reparations they should hit up Kamala Harris since her family actually owned slaves.

Meanwhile, in Europe, the Bilderberg gang convinced many people there that we are all going to die if we use energy systems so the rulers in Europe are now shutting down all gas, oil and nuclear energy systems:
According to the Belgian law on nuclear phase-out, the Doel 3 nuclear reactor will stop operating on Friday after 40 years of activity.
In the 1960s, Belgium chose nuclear energy to produce a part of its electricity since it was no longer possible to meet the growing demand for energy with fossil fuels alone. Four nuclear reactors were thus built in Doel and three in Tihange.
The Doel 1 reactor started operating in earl 1975, followed later that year by Doel 2. Doel 3 was launched in 1982, and Doel 4 was completed in mid-1985.
On Friday, Doel 3 will be disconnected from the electricity grid according to the nuclear phase-out law. This is the first time that a reactor is shut down in Belgium and comes while energy prices are soaring and ahead of a difficult winter.
Peasants, get used to freezing and starving to death. This was totally normal for 2,000 years!
Meanwhile, the very same people 8 months ago, shutting nuke plants, then reopened coal burning power plants in Germany:
Germans are finally figuring out the obvious. I am shocked. I thought they wanted to be suicidal yet again!
Desperate Germans are trying to get some LNG supplies. Good luck with that. Sheesh.
