  1. Apparently all the MSM is interested in is the few thousand people in Manhattan who lost power…I guess that the DNC gets more donations from Manhattan than they do from Louisiana.

  2. in Oregon sending love n prayers to the awesome people of Louisiana💪you guys put the T in Tough💝God bless LA and the USA🇺🇸😚🍹🎉

    God: I’m sorry did you say something?

  4. If it's too wet it's bad…If it's too bad it's bad…It's all your fault folks! What a bunch of crap!

  5. Can any one from the hurricane area tells me what are the most needs so I can bring to help from Houston.

  6. I love the condensed storm star dashboard. Essentially predicts the pattern of flooding after the levees are intentionally breached.

  7. I'm old enough to remember when global warming was going to stop it from raining ever again. now it makes it rain too much.

  8. Dont ask help from Jesus because he was prophet and human like moses And abraham And mohammed peace upon them all.
    You have to ask help from god of abraham And moses And jesus
    And mohammed

  9. Maybe some day (a big 'maybe') the USA will learn to bury their power lines. Should be a major priority for any politician truly interested in infrastructure and safety. The costs of replacing/repairing exposed wires Nationwide, every time a wind blows, is a staggering sum!!!

  10. Just another sign we are in The Tribulation.
    Matthew 24:7 King James Version (KJV)
    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

  11. There's many storms will happen if USA don't stop to take money from uae and sudia and chaina if USA don't stop to use Palestine people USA will be under the water all remember it's true though 987+456=1443+456+123=2022 urs mean no more USA that all sensitive time from 2019untill 2022 good bye USA

  12. Well sadly both Hurricane Barry and Paul Ryan have been a blow to Trump's desire for ICE raids to rule the news cycle.

  13. Drought: GLOBAL WARMING
    Heavy Rains: GLOBAL WARMING
    Damned Cold Winter: GLOBAL WARMING
    Mild Winter: GLOBAL WARMING
    Red Tide: GLOBAL WARMING
    Sea Level Rise: It's not happening, but to hell with it, GLOBAL WARMING
    Orange Hair: THE ROOT CAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING

  14. Donald Trump is building a wall at the Mexico border. I wonder when the leftists will blame Trump for the storm and the flooding that occurs. I will not be surprised if they question why Trump don't build a wall around Louisiana and New Orleans, so that the water and flooding could have been kept away. They might use the excuse that a wall in f.ex Louisiana would save lives, while the wall at the Mexico border only "take lives". For the SJW, Trump will be looked at as a bad guy, which of course is nonsense.

  15. My friend is in it right now and he has a tornado and flash flood 🙁 He just lost call connection and game connection

  16. Massive Floods in the Midwest and tornadoes and other parts of the American Republic, Massive hurricanes, Massive immigration,Massive shootings,close to war breaking out, all under the Trump administration!

  17. Why don't we build a pipeline from the Mississippi river to reservoirs in Arizona, California, and Nevada? This would solve two problems, the drought in those states and flooding in the others.

  18. As a resident of the US gulf coast I'd like the world to know that all this water here is just like everywhere else. It's wet. 😀

  19. There is no way in hell that event would happen in the state I live in, we're a freaking desert, rain would be a God send.

  20. Quit praying to a god and DO something to help these people. If your god couldn't stop the storm from hurting people he/she/it sure can't help them now.
