  1. Who's in charge of the FAKE news reports of 200 mph wind gusts? No way. Storm surge yes, but the exaggerations are worthy of a Satrurday Night Live skit.

  2. I wonder how come when the California wildfires were happening late last year, what I read most was “I hope they are Democrats burning alive”, but now for hurricane Dorian it’s “best wishes”, hmmm?

  3. I lived on the beach for a lot of years in fort Lauderdale and when the wind was blowing 25 miles an hour of the Waves were like that and as always humidity in the air even when the wind wasn't blowing that that that that's no no film of a hurricane I'll tell you that for a fact the trees aren't even bent over. I think this hurricane is a big blowhard from the deep state

  4. Wonder how long it will take the media and the stupid Demonrats to blame president Trump for this story ? Probably not long!

  5. Horrors??!!! Wheres my bahama mamma?!! What kind of hack reporting is this? We do have memories we do remember Gloria forward and even some prior. Those who live on the coast know the risks. Big gish big waves and Biig storms , If Not, well hey ya can’t fix Stupid. Those affected adversely. I pray for them of course I want no one to get hurt. Ever.
    I heared Billys SAT scores are down and the toilet paper co stocks are Up, Oh Surfs up too bro!?! Huh?! No Waaaaay!??! Waaay !?! L8RG8R. Waaaaay.

  6. Hurricanes are always a concern. Sept is the start of hurricane season. There was the Galveston hurricane long ago in 1900 where thousands of people were killed and there was 145 mph winds. That was over one hundred years ago, and things are always in cycles. Hurricanes cause redistribution of the elements, as if cleaning out any stagnation. Quite amazing the power that is unleashed.

  7. Weren't people warned in time? ..Now, other people have to risk theirs lifes to save lives of people that dont't really care..

  8. Why the heck didn't they evacuate? They had days to leave now rescuers have to risk their lives. Minnis warned that anyone who did not evacuate was "in extreme danger and can expect a catastrophic consequence". But many ignored the warning and are now paying the price. Ignorance is bliss.

  9. He did ask her too many questions considering she didn’t have much battery power left in her phone 📱 this is a nightmare

  10. I'm so sorry for this poor people :((((((( Ill donate some money as soon as that becomes an option 🙁 I live right across from the Bahamas , Palm Beach Florida but we barely had any rain .

  11. We know your power is precious so we are going to ask dumb questions and use your battery up. Precious lady, prayers that you and your family stay safe!!

  12. Ride it out! In Asia where they live in typhoon country people there are always prepared evacuations business as usual The government just wants you to spend your money period for exaggerated hyping the storm just like global warming scam.

  13. I'm sympathize with the Bahamas for this horrible tragedy. I hope they all stay safe. It's such a beautiful place with very beautiful people. Just listening to Denise on this video talk about her grandmother in danger makes me want to fly out there myself and save them.

  14. She is not really there. This is a fake call. Listen to her answers. She sounds like she’s calling from her desk in New York. Her cell phone works?! If you believe this is a call, I have a bridge to sell you. If you lived there, you couldn’t help, but give local towns and names, places and roads ..and beaches!

  15. There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.- Luke 21:11
    But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”- Luke 21:36

    Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.- Matthew 24:44

  16. Saying Prayers for Denise & Her Grandmother! Unless You live in a State that is susceptible to Hurricanes June through November it's hard to imagine Praying for the best but expecting the worst. You can prepare all You can but nothing can prep You for a Category 5. Stay Safe!

  18. God loves the Trump family the key largo Estate Will Be Spared this is truly an act of God. A demonstration of His Favor. 🌀🌴🙏🙏🙏

  19. I have been in quite a few hurricanes living in Louisiana and one thing I can tell you, MY MOTHER and MY GRANDMOTHER would have been with my in a safe place. I do not believe this what so ever. She wants people to risk their lives to get her family when she should be with them??? staged

  20. My thoughts and ferven heartfelt prayers to the Bahamian people. My family was going there next month for a wedding. God bless you folks in that beautiful plac!!ejt

  21. President Donald Trump spent the day visiting his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, and tweeting political grievances as a massive hurricane prepares to barrel up the East Coast of the United States.

  22. Donald Trump has a word of caution for the citizens in the path of hurricane Dorian, FORE! Trump golfed while Americans were running for their lives.

  23. Lindsey Grahams feelings about Trump 3 years ago summed it up beautifly,Trump is Shallow,says the worst things possible about Imagrants,doesn't know how laws work,he's a race baiting xenophobic,religious bigot,jackass 👍

  24. Calif. needs help we have a Hurricane of homeless poop and pee flying all over the place, baby's being stuck with needles and bullets. Plz send more trash cans and tents save Calif. We are calling it Hurricane Pelosi.

  25. This storm is not that bad ! Seems like a distraction from the reality of the criminals that occupy our Congress ! Ask Ilhan fake name Ohmar about her crimes and she will reply that hurricane Dorian is racist and Trump is to blame !

  26. Please people, pray for all the people affected by this, DISASTER!!!! No need to criticize the news anchor or, the people! !!!!!!! Remember, this could be you, me, or….anyone else that's actually, A HUMAN BEING.

  27. Will probably not be long before we start getting cell phone alerts to send money to the Clinton Foundation so they can help the hurricane victims….just like they did for the Haiti earthquake victims….don''t fall for it.

  28. Why wasn't her grandmother and mother brought to her home before it hit? They knew it was coming, my grandparents were always looked after first whenever there was an emergency notification.

  29. I enjoyed a few Hurricanes in S Florida some time ago. Happier back in the Hills. I prefer the snow. Hope the people are ok.

  30. Bull crap you live in a hurricane area. What do you expect? Its not glodal warming its not any more than normal. The inly difference is people live in thesr areas where there asnt a lot of human inhabitants.

  31. THE ONLY THING SAD HERE BESIDES THE LIVES EFFECTED BY THIS DESTRUCTIVE STORM, IS THAT MAN PRETENDING TO BE BLOWN AWAY FROM THE WIND…..
    EVEN THE TREES ARE'NT REALLY BLOWING MUCH EITHER….
    IF YOU PPL REPLAY IT YOU WILL SEE IN THE LAST MOMENTS HE STANDS STRAIGHT UP THE MOMENT THE CAMERA APPEARS TO PAN AWAY FROM HIM…
    SURE IT CLEARLY IS A TERRIBLE STORM BUT HE DID THAT STUNT FOR THE VISUAL AS A JOKE AND ITS NOT FUNNY TO THE PPL WHO ACTUALLY LOST EVERYTHING TO SEE 5 REPLAYS OF A GUY FAKING IT……

  32. There already blaming Trump. Saying. Trump contains enouph POWER to control the heavens and the earth. The winds and the RAINS!!!! TRUMP IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! Ummm one question though? Why doesn't he smite those who have turned against him? I guess he works in mysterious ways.

  33. To bad about the beating the Bahamas took, that was intense. I'm also noticing the weather channel is trying to save face for being wrong about everything (new fake news)?

  34. Yes lets pray that the hurricane will stop n will not reach US. Pray All at bahamas is well. God bless n keep Bahamas n America.
    America, please humble yourselves n pray that God may heal the land. Stant United and do not let the enemies have thw Upper Hand!

  35. HAARP advertised that they would steer hurricanes AWAY from the coastlines. Dr Evil from Austin Powers the spy who shagged me had a weather weapon. He wanted one million dollars.

  36. I visit this island about five years ago and these people were so kind and friendly . I am praying for all of those in this storm !!!

  37. Why always people wait to the last minute to get rescue??? is very inconsiderate of them to put at risk the people who has to go for them, they know a hurricane is coming and do not do nothing, don;t get out of there, and wait for somebody else to come to rescue them!
