The only good news is that since the pressure rose slightly it might not strengthen further.

Currently it is headed absolutely due west and is due east of Palm Beach – site of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.

They think it will turn north. St. Lucie Nuclear Power Station, to the north of Palm Beach, wasn’t designed for a direct hit having a surge this large. A Palm Beach direct hit would probably put St. Lucie in grave danger as it would get the worst side of the storm.

ABOUT 140 MI…225 KM E OF WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA

Mar-a-Lago is a historic property. Perhaps Trump can give or sell Florida back to Spain? After all, it’s routinely hit by hurricanes, like Puerto Rico.
