Hurricane Ida could overwhelm levees strengthened to protect New Orleans as it barrels down on Louisiana on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The storm - whose winds have hit 165mph, with gusts of up to 165mph - is on the verge of becoming a Category 5 hurricane, amid fears it could be one of the strongest to ever hit Louisiana. Evacuations have begun amid warnings of storm surges of up to 15 feet, with Jefferson Parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng saying of the predicted inundation: 'I want to reiterate, the storm surge that we are expecting is unsurvivable.'
Don't believe the hype about Climate change, global warming, and the deadliness hurricane garbage that you are assaulted with daily in the media. Take a look.... Also remember before the 1960's we didn't even have satellites and ways to measure some storms, and we didn't have 10 million people in harm's way building on ocean beaches. Remember that thing about 'building your houses on sand?" Jesus knew what would happen 2,000 years ago!

Harvest time, and the autumn! Here is a map of the fall foliage
I am sick of the nonsense that the Democrats, most media figures and FAKE SCIENTIST spew to the American public about global warming... IT IS A LIE. They know it's a lie, but this is Satan's way of making you give up your freedom and surrender to him and his minions, and rejecting God in the process! It's about time that the American people wake up to the coming authoritarian rule that the Democrats want to bring to America. Under the guise of "climate change" these Democrats, and many Republicans too, want to take away your God given, constitutional rights. They want to dictate to you what to think and where you go and what you can do. WE ARE AT WAR, and the Democrats want most of you DEAD! Do not be stupid.
CNN says hurricanes are because of global warming. Read the graph below to see that they are LYING! And by the way, when the talk about the damage today, they don't have a clue of the thousands of AMERICANS killed each year before modern satellites.
Take a look for yourselves- open your eyes! A note: Up until the 1930's we did not have accurate wind readings. So many hurricanes were underreported and not even known! The #'s before them may be even HIGHER! Wind speeds defiantly were

Hurricane Dorian smashed parts of the Bahamas overnight with devastating 165 mph maximum sustained winds — down from 185 mph earlier — leaving a path of destruction in its wake, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
It's happened before and it could happen again.
Roughly 2,700 years ago, an unusually powerful solar storm swept past the Earth, scientists announced in a new study. Though it had little to no impact on people in that long ago, pre-industrial and pre-technological world, such an event today would cause widespread power outages along with potentially disastrous communication and navigation failures.
The solar storm, which was in 660 B.C., was about 10 times stronger than any known event in the past 70 years, study lead author Raimund Muscheler said.
A solar storm of that strength would be "a threat to modern society in terms of communication and navigation systems, space technologies and commercial aircraft operations,” the study said.
Scientists studied ancient ice in Greenland to uncover clues about previous solar storms. Looking at an ice core that dated as far back as 100,000 years, researchers found radioactive isotopes that indicated a very powerful solar storm 2,700 years ago.
Brace yourself for a brutal winter: Experts say disruptions in the polar vortex could cause temperatures to plummet in parts of the US.. Click here for More
Activity in an Arctic climate pattern could send the polar vortex barreling towards more southern latitudes to envelop parts of North America, Europe, and Asia. The phenomenon has led to extreme winter weather in recent years, including record low temperatures in the US back in 2014 and last year's 'Beast from the East' in the UK. While there's still time for things to change, the models currently suggest a split in the high-altitude polar vortex will ring in the New Year, creating the potential for 'more severe winter weather' in the Eastern US in the weeks to follow.
Wild weather weekend: Nearly TWO THOUSAND flights canceled and TWO FEET of snow expected to fall in New England as winter storm that will affect 115 MILLION starts sweeping towards the Northeast
A winter storm started sweeping across the Midwest on Friday (pictured), leading to slick roads and runways, as it inched its way toward New England, where it was forecast to dump up to two feet of snow. Nearly two thousand flights out of domestic airports have been canceled so far as the country braces itself for significant snow and ice, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware.com. The storm led to slick roads and runways, as it inched its way toward New England, where it was forecast to dump up to two feet of snow over the long weekend for Martin Luther King Jr Day.
BOSTON (CBS) – There was an unusual sight in the blue skies over New England this week – an apparent rainbow in the clouds.
The National Weather Service noted the presence of what some call “fire rainbows,” which are technically circumhorizontal arcs.
A woman in New Hampshire captured a particularly vivid fire rainbow at Rye Beach on Wednesday.
“A lot of people were seeing them over the past few days,” WBZ-TV meteorologist Dave Epstein noted.
WBZ viewer Kathy Diamontopolous she was just walking out to her car Wednesday and was “amazed” at what she saw.
Hurricane season is here: A History Reminder of the past storms
Horrors of Galveston: Incredible photos from 1900 show weary survivors and a Texas town in ruins after deadliest hurricane in US history killed more than 8,000. Click here
As Harvey continues to wreak havoc and the death toll rises, these pictures show the impact of America's deadliest natural disaster more than 100 years ago. Devastating images show houses flattened and rescuers digging for bodies following the Great Galveston Hurricane. The Category 4 hurricane, with winds of up to 145 mph, made landfall on September 8, 1900 killing at least 8,000 of its 37,000 residents and destroying more than 3,600 buildings.
The Arctic is melting catastrophically! Sea ice levels are experiencing their most precipitous decline in 1500 years! Something must be done – and fast…
Well, so claims the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and we know by now what that means, don’t we?
Yep: the Arctic sea ice is doing just fine. Yep: yet again, the NOAA is telling porkies.
As usual, Paul Homewood has got its number.
First, here’s what the NOAA is claiming, as relayed in a scaremongering piece at Vox:
The Arctic Ocean once froze reliably every year. Those days are over.
Arctic sea ice extent has been measured by satellites since the 1970s. And scientists can sample ice cores, permafrost records, and tree rings to make some assumptions about the sea ice extent going back 1,500 years. And when you put that all on a chart, well, it looks a little scary.
In December, NOAA released its latest annual Arctic Report Card, which analyzes the state of the frozen ocean at the top of our world. Overall, it’s not good.
“The Arctic is going through the most unprecedented transition in human history,” Jeremy Mathis, director of NOAA’s Arctic research program, said at a press conference. “This year’s observations confirm that the Arctic shows no signs of returning to the reliably frozen state it was in just a decade ago.”
Now, courtesy of Homewood, are the facts:
Sea ice in the Arctic is recovering after a period of decline:

Niagara Falls FREEZES as wind chill drops as low as -89 DEGREES and 220MILLION prepare for a VERY chilly New Year's Eve
Parts of Niagara falls have frozen as bitter cold weather has swept over most of the northern United States, leaving many areas looking like Narnia. More than 220 million people face below freezing temperatures on Friday, as temperatures are expected to drop further as the New Year's weekend continues. The bitter temperatures have already been blamed for a handful of deaths and cancelled in long list of weekend celebrations. Mountain weather-related headaches continue to pile up in already winter-weary parts of the Midwest and East Cost experiencing highway pileups, frozen pips and car thefts. And though the conditions may be treacherous, gorgeous photos of places such as Niagara Falls show glittering frozen icicles and bright white snow piles almost make the arctic chill worth it.
Extreme winter weather has been causing problems for millions across the East Coast, but it has also made for some beautiful sights.
Among those beautiful sights is Niagara Falls, which has now frozen over due to temperatures which dropped to 16F on Wednesday.
And it looks like the popular tourist destination may stay frozen, as temperatures are expected to drop even lower come Thursday.

'The attention the Falls is receiving is bringing a crowd to view them in their majestic, winter splendor!' Michelle Blackley, communications & community relations manager for the Falls, told USA Today.
Yet another arctic blast is set to strike the central and eastern United States on Wednesday evening, bringing sub-zero temperatures to many parts.
Them things are going to get even colder.
Houses ripped to shreds, power lines toppled, and cars smashed into the road: How Hurricane Maria left Dominica looking like an apocalyptic wasteland
Exclusive pictures have laid bare the extent of the devastation on Dominica after it was lashed by 160mph winds in Hurricane Maria, leaving 95 per cent of buildings on the island damaged. The island, one of the poorest in the Caribbean, has a population of 73,000 people who have all been left without phones, internet and electricity, meaning that almost no news or pictures have emerged from the country since Maria struck. So far seven people have been confirmed killed on the island, though this is expected to rise dramatically after rescuers are able to reach more remote communities.
Extraordinary footage from the Bahamas shows the shoreline receded much farther than normal, exposing what is usually the ocean floor.
Twitter user @Kaydi_K from Long Island, Bahamas wrote on Friday: 'I am in disbelief right now... This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!! That's as far as they see #HurricaneIrma.'
The strange video shows her walking on the exposed ocean floor which is dry and covered in large shells.
Another Twitter user tweeted a photo of the exposed beach at a different beach in the Bahamas and showed it was back to normal within less than a day.
Hurricane Irma, which hit the Bahamas on Friday, is so powerful that it has altered the shape of the ocean in Long Island, but it will likely be back to normal by Sunday afternoon.

The most damning aspersion that can be lobbed against any person, or the exposure of “secret government activity,” overwhelmingly is “Conspiracy Theorist.” That pejorative ‘handle’ is equated with imbecile mind-activity with aspersions often suggested as ‘tin hat wearers’. Well, step aside all you doubters and listen up carefully to what took place in the halls of Congress on May 14, 2014 regarding the weather modification system known as HAARP.
In the YouTube below Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) asks some pointed questions about HAARP. However, readers may not be surprised at the answers, but the mainstream media ought to be wiping oodles of egg yolk from its collective face.
For the second time in what has been a frigid winter in the Northeastern United States, Niagara falls has come to an icy halt as the six million cubic feet of water that typically flow over the falls every minute has frozen over. The flow of water over the falls typically can withstand icy temperatures like those that have frozen much of the country this winter, but Monday's high of 9 degrees Fahrenheit brought Niagara Falls to a standstill - and photographers were there to snap some stunning images of the frozen waterfall.
Nor'easter hitting next week could bring more flooding to ravaged coastline defenseless after seawalls and dunes were smashed by Sandy
As the mass clear-up from Superstorm Sandy continues, forecasters are already warning of a powerful nor'easter storm front coming in from the Atlantic next week.
The beleaguered coast line is expected to face 45mph gusts of wind mixed with snow and rain on Wednesday.
The forecast has been greeted with dismay from beach erosion experts, who fear even more damage to shorelines already decimated by Sandy.
In ruins: Orley Beach in New Jersey. The forecast of another powerful storm on Wednesday has been greeted with dismay from beach erosion experts, who fear even more damage to shorelines already decimated
Flooding in Mantoloking, New Jersey. Sandy destroyed hundreds of miles of sand dunes and protective sea walls along the East Coast
Monday's devastating superstorm destroyed hundreds of miles of sand dunes and protective sea walls along the East Coast.
These natural defences, now either non-existent or severly weakened, are no match for another powerful storm, even one not on the scale of Sandy.
Experts fear a new storm could, despending on the wind direction, flood lowlands near the coast and worsen the extensive erosion already suffered by beaches and sand dunes.

The Bounty and 'MGM' (Photo credit: █ Slices of Light █▀ ▀ ▀)
It appears that the good ship has sunk in this terrible storm in an area that has become a graveyard to many ships like her. It appears 17 are rescued and 2 are still missing. Everyone at The Plain Truth sends our thoughts and prayers to all that are involved. Also a thanks to those brave men in the Coast Guard. Here is the link to The Bounty's Facebook page... Visit them and "like" them and send any thoughts their way. The Virginian Pilot is reporting that: "
Sailors abandoned the HMS Bounty in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday after it took on water during Hurricane Sandy, and the fate of two of its crew in peril.
The Coast Guard is searching the waters off the coast of North Carolina for two missing crew members, including Capt. Robin Walbridge, from the tall ship after rescuing 14 others from lifeboats this morning, a spokesman said. The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the other missing crew member is Claudene Christian of Oklahoma.
Coast Guard helicopters plucked the Bounty’s crewmembers from two canopied lifeboats in the Atlantic Ocean, a short time after the crew abandoned ship. The 180-foot, three-mast tall ship had lost propulsion and was taking on water, said Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Jamie Fredrick.
A short time later, the HMS Bounty sunk into the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, Fredrick said.
“They lost their generator and when they lost their generator, they lost their ability to dewater the vessel,” Fredrick said. “That’s when they made their decision to abandon ship.”
Survivors told Coast Guard officials that three of the crew were thrown overboard while they were getting into the lifeboats. One man was able to swim to the life rafts but two others were pulled away.
Everyone was wearing cold water suits and life vests, which means they have a good chance of surviving until they can be rescued, Fredrick said."
