  1. As much as I dislike Trump, his statement was ripped out of context

    Irma, Maria and Michael WERE Cat 5s, yes.

    Irma made US landfall at Cat 4

    Maria hit the USVI as Cat 4, but not US Mainland

    Only Michael hit US Mainland AT 5

    Not the most clever statement, but keep the context

  2. I was in an area hit by Irma and lost power for 9 days and I couldnt have told you what category it was. Id be willing to bet most folks cant tell you the names and strengths of many either but the news expects the POTUS to know this off the top of his head. Ridiculous!! NBC cant just tell the story?

  3. Why are those people using gasoline powered cars to evacuate. Haven’t they heard from our Lord and saviour Greta Thunberg that their cars have caused this storm!? Good people only evacuate in Teslas, the car approved by our God.

  4. The green screen is so bad at the end but for real. This is a gnarly storm. Parents live there. My sister. I know they’re safe but way to go with the dude “chase” at Stuart, Florida. Bad green screen

  5. How convenient ; a rare cat 5 hurricane heading for trumps house just after the controversial decision to hold g7 there next year!!!!

  6. Nbc gotta toss that jab in at the President. Lol classic. Make it sound like he only wants to protect FL. You guys really are the enemy of the people.

  7. Dumb enemy of the people news channel. Watch now, everything that happens to anyone in the hurricane will be blamed on Trump. Mark my words.

  8. Can anyone explain why the winds in Nassau Bahamas 90 miles or less fro
    Storm only reached up to30 Miph today according to google weather even at peak storm hours ?

  9. Donald trump: “I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of a Category 5, i knew it existed”…

    Hurricane Harvey: Bet that fam..

    -sincerely, hurricane harvey survivor

  10. I find it funny that you all think the president controls your destiny. I find it even funnier that you think your voice matters anymore. This isn't the 1800's if you honestly think that some guy works tirelessly in an office to attempt to bring this nation to equilibrium, or if you honestly think there is no governing body outside of what you see on the news that has it's own agenda. You have simply fallen victim to the system. Politics are a joke. This is a day and age where the fate of Humanity is on the brink. Rising temperatures, rising sea levels, jungles burning, pollution, algae covering the oceans… need I continue? What everyone here fails to realize is that it's too late. Instead of trying to do anything other than be a part of the problem, all you do is point fingers at a man who was elected to act out on social media and the news to keep you listening and distracted until you finally realize. But when will that be? Will it be when there is nowhere left to run? When there is no water to drink? When you can't feed your family anymore? Its already too late for us. You want to know why? Because we've become so reliant on our machines and our capitalistic way of life that we can't afford to not drive, or not create absurd amounts of waste. All of you know what we face, but you're too scared to accept it. Some of you just don't care, you walk around with an attitude reflecting a statement similar to "I don't see anyone else doing anything about it". We deserve nothing more than to be extinguished from the face of this planet. You all will never see until it's too late. Instead of pointing a finger at some man in a suit, point into a mirror.

  11. It just feels like our country (USA) is slowly falling apart. Got a Super Hurricane hitting the southern east coast, and mass shootings spreading across the country at a rapid pace. All the policies that Trump has either removed or put in place, (climate change or weak gun laws), are all causing a negative effect to our nation. #ImpeachTrumpNow

  12. Anyone else see how mad these trump supporters are…. he literally said he thinks Cat 5 where myths… he has property in Florida Which got hit by cat 5 multiple times…but they have soo much of a sheep mentality that it hurts them when they hear anything negative at all.

  13. Why does the federal government lose money insuring beach mansions in Florida? Why is the federal government in the insurance business?

  14. Cat 1-2 at landfall is a baby. I hope people in US play it safe, have flood insurance, stop letting Weather Channel scare them. Always wonder what would happen if an actual big hurricane, like Camile in 69', hit the mainland as Cat 5, with all the people living on the coast or in Houston or New Orleans, where our genius engineers and greedy municipalities have allowed folks to live in swamps, below sea level. Luckily hurricanes have been small and few over the past 20 years compared to the wind speeds and storm surge pre 1070's. Weather Channel language and reporting is immoral and horrible, technically illegal: you can't scream fire in a crowded theater.

  15. I Earnestly believe trump never intended to win the election… Well now he knows what a POTUS has to deal with…. I really have no sympathy.

  16. It's funny how they are not talking about the nuclear power plant that sits on the cost. The walls will not help because them morons build it on sand.

  17. "During his term three were", but realize all three were upgraded to category 5 storms after the fact. This is the first one that will make landfall already classified as a cat 5

  18. I would have a major panic attack is I got warned. Like my heart would drop! But then you have to sit fast for you and who you love. I hope everyone is ok. Including the homeless :(… And category 5 means that hurricane Dorian is very very strong .

  19. How do people still get confused Over why a hurricane is suddenly coming ? It’s called “Hurricane Season” for a reason

  20. correction, there were 5 category 5's the Russian hoax had winds of over 200 MPH and Epstein murder has also had 200MPH hot air

  21. Wait I’m confused what’s happening😂 cause I’m in Florida is it hitting or not? And what cat is it gonna be when it hits Florida? I can’t leave also soo yeah I’m staying😂

  22. Mndatory evacuations in Florida, where it's not going to hit. I know I wouldn't move a muscle if I were down there. You pay for my gas then, to get on a clogged highway and just sit there for hours with a million other people who were driven to panic over nothing…

  23. Be amazed. Thanks for you son of God not for the distructio on. Only to help these nieve to understand the power of our God. They are in paradise so was Adam & Eve. Makes you think. thanks
