    Not just this one. Every storm that hits the states.

    Local officials tell everyone to get the fuck out. Yet some twat in wets will grab onto a fucking palm tree with a microphone in the other hand, shouting down it to a savvy cameraman who's thought fuck that and films them from nearest available shelter.

    There's a Muppet on MSNBC right now who's going to spin likes a sycamore leaf at this rate. That's if a big wave doesn't twat him first.

    Really don't know why this country is obsessed with what happens in America. They get bad weather in America, we know.

    Good point.

    This is even bigger and getting very little media coverage.

    Agree 100%. People are free to obsess about America and Trump all they want but when the BBC (they are the worst for it) and British newspapers have some bollocks about who the FBI director's met for breakfast as their main news every other day then it's a sad indictment of our society. Obviously some of Trump's foreign policy is newsworthy because it affects us but I really could not give a fuck about some investigation. It's not fake news it's shit news.

    It is all about ratings. The rest of the US wants to know what is going on in the hurricane hit area. Will we tune into a news station that has no coverage or the one with the fit blonde right in the heart of it? And which station will the advertisers spend their money on?

    Anyone said "hunker down" yet? My favourite bit. Everybody else shelters, but Americans hunker.
