What each category of hurricane can do to a house (video)

This is a horrifying video from the Weather Channel, showing what each category of hurricane does to the same home.

What’s kind of amazing is how scary already Category 2 hurricanes are. In a Cat 2 storm, the windows of the house can get blown in.

And Category 3, forget about it. The front door can get blown in by the wind, and the roof of the house can start to be lifted off by the wind.

Category 4, most of the trees fall, windows break, and shingles fly away.

And in Cat 5, you can kiss your home goodbye.

    “As Hurricane Matthew impacts the East Coast of the US this week, it is important to consider how increasingly warm ocean temperatures around the globe are causing record-breaking rainfalls and more powerful tropical storms and hurricanes.”

    Fracking “After years of talking about it, we are finally poised to control our own energy future. We produce more oil at home than we have in 15 years. We have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas, and the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar – with tens of thousands of good, American jobs to show for it. We produce more natural gas than ever before – and nearly everyone’s energy bill is lower because of it.” Obama State of the Union 2013 http://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherhelman/2013/02/12/president-obama-gets-it-fracking-is-awesome/

    In a new study, researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that homes located in suburban and rural areas near fracking sites have an overall radon concentration 39 percent higher than those located in non-fracking urban areas.” From the journal Environmental Health Perspectives via AlterNet.

    Offshore Drilling ” Not Just the Atlantic: Obama Leasing Millions of Gulf Acres for Offshore Drilling – Deploying the age-old “Friday news dump,” President Barack Obama’s Interior Department gave the green light on Friday, July 18 to companies to deploy seismic air guns to examine the scope of Atlantic Coast offshore oil-and-gas reserves. It is the first time in over 30 years that the oil and gas industry is permitted to do geophysical data collection along the Atlantic coast. Though decried by environmentalists, another offshore oil and gas announcement made the same week has flown under the radar: over 21 million acres of Gulf of Mexico offshore oil and gas reserves will be up for lease on August 20 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Superdome.http://www.desmogblog.com/2014/07/23/not-just-atlantic-obama-leasing-millions-gulf-acres-offshore-drilling

    Democrats and their Republican brothers and sisters are enemies of the environment.

    That’s just the wind. Storms also come with tidal surges which often create most of the damage. Also tornadoes are created within the storm doing further damage. As if the wind weren’t enough, there’s more to a hurricane than that.

    You’re not gonna believe this, John, but there are Trumpites out there now claiming the Matthew hurricane category rating is being manipulated…because they’re fucking idiots, I guess.
