Such destruction, it can be rebuilt but the real sadness is the loss of the 2 people.

Very true Frank, Lives have a higher value than swanky sail boats.
The wind speed was over 200 MPH so now we cam compete with Japanese Typhoons.

Yes Kenny, we've been getting more and more since 1967, and also more destructive too.

A sobering image indeed. Such a force of nature to destroy and cause death, and yet just look at the beauty of the sky in the aftermath of the hurricane.

Thanks Carol.
Yes, a poor prize though, I have seen some very dramatic sunsets after storms several times here. This particular Hurricane did lots of damage because it lasted so long, the other we had in the same period was brief but far more violent regarding wind speed.

Its the will of the weather.... Saddest that lives were lost.

We see it here.

Typhoon is just the word for Pacific Hurricanes all run on a scale of 1-5+.. isnt a case of competing.. its the same thing as I am sure you know.

No Insurance... kind of daft.. I bet hindsight was wonderful.

Yes Pam, damage to property is nothing compared to the loss of human life.

Of course I am fully aware that Hurricanes and Typhoons are the same except for the name, by competing I was not referring to the two as being some kind of sport or team game but that we had equal weather problems.

Yes, they tried to get the local Government to foot the bill, they flatly refused as it was not the fault of the other tax payers but their own stupidity, repairing the club area cost over ten millions, what the loss of super smart boats cost is to me unknown.
The club ran lots of lotteries and arranged many concerts to get cash for the repair which is now done.

I am willing to bet they are now insured.

...wow, that looks really very bad (and bumpy). What a mess to clean up. And 2 dead, what a pity.

Global warming, whatever the cause. Too much energy in the atmosphere.

Thank you very much Lutz.
Yes, Global warming is the reason. We have been getting hurricanes here since 1967, each time they get stronger.

Yes, loss of life is very bad.

Thank you very much.

...same here, 50 years ago a thunderstorm was just another weather phenomenon, these days they surpise us with all kinds of nasty effects.

Your picture show the damage- and the dead of the people is a dragesty.

Yes, the change is partly due to the nature of the Solar system, we humans have messed up much due to our ignorance such as removing forests and burning fossil fuels. It will get very much worse.

Impressive image... I'm a sailor and I own a boat, so the sight of a boat in danger gives me the thrill... but it seems that here all the boats survived well, did they?

No Skipper, many were totally destroyed, the Hurricane lasted for three days. The entire sailing club harbour was also totally wrecked and unfortunately the club had not bothered to take out insurance.
