WEMA Live Desk


September 8, 2019 11:22 a.m. EST:  As part of my WEMA Live Desk 24/7, I, too, saw the same forecast track of Hurricane Dorian as described by President Trump. The WEMA Forecast Model (8/30/19), however, provided a different track direction that would be more northern and missing most communities of Florida, therefore, also, Alabama and Louisiana. ### (End of live reports of this extreme storm.) šŸŒ€ā˜ļøšŸŒ¦ļøšŸŒŠ






September 7, 2019 3:30 p.m. EST: WEMA Local Extreme Weather, Announcement: Due to local flooding, special WEMA local weather alert (Annapolis, Maryland) higher tide actions than normal expected 8 p.m. - 6 a.m., affected community: Dock Street and nearby local communities.šŸŒŠ

The long extreme-storm named Hurricane Dorian is still a Category 1 and no longer on the shorelines of the east coast.  Its current path is headed towards Nova Scotia. You are encouraged to give to storm-victims once you have been given--as the Word of God declares to all who believe in the one true God of us all.

Hopefully, this will be the last reporting of an extreme storm until I move and unpack and set up my home office again. As I am currently, making relocation arrangements to reside in my hometown area again on the Eastern Shore--after concluding a simple divorce of adultery (February, 2007).  My biological kids, other millennials, and I are really looking forward to it and praying daily for peace with such things. I wish that my kids would have remained with me, while living in Georgia, so that they, too, could have enjoyed the southern-style of culture and extended family experiences as much as I appreciated it. For the people who raised me all throughout my years before an adult, my grandparents, are gone y'all. Gone.šŸŒ€ā˜ļøšŸŒ¦ļøšŸŒŠ

*NEW! The WEMA Hurricane Storm Track Forecast Model
Storm Name, Dorian: "I believe it will barely travel near eastern coastal areas of Florida, local communities near southern areas of Georgia, and take a northeastern track/upwards causing winds and extreme rains with an upward track passing through a few local communities of Georgia, South Carolina, and perhaps areas of North Carolina shore lines. (8/30/19)

Please note that this model may not be reliable of the storm pattern. This extreme storm model track is simply my hypothesis or my personal calculation of the current storm, through many years of paying attention to severe storms and hurricane patterns as they pass through local communities." -Sherlene

Current Storm: "Hurricane Dorian" (August 30 - Ongoing) Anticipate Category 1 - 4 winds, rains, and flooding that will be experienced in pattern areas announced by your local weather, and rains and clouds will also be experienced in neighboring states of the storm track.) šŸŒ€ā˜ļøšŸŒ¦ļøšŸŒŠ
