By the time that Hurricane Dorian struck the northern Bahamas on Sunday, the storm was upgraded to a Category 5 storm. 185 mph winds were registered on the island, causing massive damage to homes and infrastructure.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), the hurricane will be approaching Florida’s east coast on Monday or Tuesday.

Dorian is said to be the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane since 1950. Some Florida residents were hoping that the storm would veer off back towards the empty regions of the Atlantic Ocean after hitting the Bahamas, but experts say that Floridians should brace for a heavy impact even if Dorian does not connect with a direct hit.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami recorded a maximum wind gust of 185 mph.

As the storm passes through the Bahamas, the National Hurricane Center has warned that there is a potential for massive storm surges, ranging from 10 to 15 feet and are advising everyone who could not evacuate to stay indoors, and if possible, far from the coast. The hurricane center also said that the Bahamas could get up to 10 to 25 inches of rain in addition to the potential storm surges.

To make matters worse, Dorian is a slow moving storm, allowing it to cause more havoc and destruction in each area that it passes through.

A state of emergency has been issued for many regions, with mandatory evacuations in effect.

To help with the evacuation efforts, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered tolls be suspended on all of the major highways in the state

Many of the areas in the path of hurricane Dorian were devastated by Hurricane Maria two years ago, and have still not recovered from the brutal storm. Puerto Rico, in particular, is still without power in many areas, and in others, the power grid is extremely vulnerable and plagued with regular outages.

The NHC said that there is a risk of a dangerous storm surge along the Florida coast. The agency warned residents of the area to have a hurricane plan in place and prepare for the worst. For nearly 80 miles from the center, tropical storm force winds were being recorded.

Hurricane Irma was another devastating Atlantic storm in recent memory, Dorian has already surpassed the strength of Irma, with record-setting speeds being registered as it creeps up the Atlantic coast.

This storm is truly historic. Only one storm since 1950 has had stronger winds than Dorian, and that is Hurricane Allen, which had a record-setting wind speed of up to 190 mph while crossing the Atlantic. Only two other hurricanes since 1950 have had winds that match the speeds of Dorian, which is Hurrican Gilbert of 1988 and Hurricane Wilma of 2005, each of which had maximum winds of 185 mph. Thus far, Dorian’s maximum speed has been around 185 mph.

There is really no telling where Dorian will be headed next. There is a very good chance that it will not make complete landfall in the United States, but it still poses a series threat to the entire east coast.

Horowitz loved journalism, but wanted more freedom to pursue more complex topics than you would find on the evening news. Around the same time, he began to notice that there was a growing number of independent journalists developing followings online by sharing their in-depth analysis of advanced or off-beat topics. It wasn't long before Horowitz quit his internship with a large New York network to begin publishing his own material online.

The rapper Lil Uzi Vert has recently had a $24 million diamond surgically installed into his forehead. The rapper has reportedly been saving for the strange body modification for the past three years.

He told reporters that the diamond costs more than his home and all of his cars put together. Oddly enough, the diamond could cost more than his entire net worth, which has been estimated at no higher than $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Lil Uzi gained initial recognition following the release of the commercial mixtape Luv Is Rage in 2015, which led to a recording contract with Atlantic Records.

The rapper attracted mainstream attention following the release of his debut single “Money Longer” in 2016. After releasing two additional mixtapes in 2016 and 2017, including one in collaboration with Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi Vert was featured on the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping Migos’ single “Bad and Boujee”. He later secured his first top ten single with “XO Tour Llif3”, which won the MTV Video Music Award for Song of Summer.

At the 2018 Grammy Awards, Lil Uzi Vert was nominated for Best New Artist. His second studio album, Eternal Atake was among the most anticipated albums in 2o20 and peaked at number one on the Billboard 200.

Some fans noticed that the diamond seemed to be loose and off-center, but Uzi clarified that it is only like that temporarily because there is still swelling in the area.

“It’s in the middle. I just got a long bar in it because I just got it pierced. When the swelling go down I’ll get a short bar so it won’t move. Y’all keep talking about it off because I got a long bar in it so it can move ’cause of the swelling. When it go down, it gonna be right though,” he said in the video below.

Photos Show Epstein Cuddling With Young Girl On Private Jet

New photos that were recently obtained by journalists at The Daily Mail show Jeffrey Epstein cuddling with a sleeping young girl. The photos are said to have been taken on Epstein’s notorious private jet. The late billionaire pedophile reportedly took the girl to Disney World and was returning home with her when the photos were taken.

The most disturbing image shows Epstein sitting in his airplane with the young girl laying on top of his lap. Other photos showed the group’s trip to Disney World, where Epstein, the young girl, and others were seen posing with Disney characters like “Piglet” from “Winnie The Pooh.”

The young girl in the photos has not been identified, and it is not clear if she was one of Epstein’s victims, but the images certainly paint an ugly picture.

The Disney trip reportedly took place in 2004, which was a few years before he was first arrested. However, many victims say that his abusive behavior goes back far earlier than 2004.

Epstein’s associate and one-time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell is also believed to have been on the trip, although she does not appear in any of the photos. Some of the faces on the photos are blurred out.

A source who was on the trip said, “It was a fun day. We ate in a restaurant with two of Jeffrey’s friends who he met there. Jeffrey however did not eat lunch. I hardly ever saw him eat at a restaurant. Food always had to be prepared by a personal chef.”

The source also said that Epstein and his entourage had full VIP access to the theme park and never had to wait in any lines.

“We were given a VIP tour of the park and someone was escorting us around from ride to ride. The group never had to be in line for a ride or a rollercoaster, we went to the front of the line each time,” the source told the Mail.

The source also claimed that the photo was innocent, despite how bad it looks in the context of what we now know about Epstein.

“It had been a long day and the girl just fell asleep in his arms. The picture is terrifying based upon what we know now but it was entirely innocent,” the source said.

Epstein reportedly flew about ten other people to Disney World for the Trip, including Ghislaine Maxwell, his personal assistant Sarah Kellen and Slovakian model Nadia Marcinkova.

New details about Epstein’s crimes and his associates are expected to be revealed during the upcoming criminal trial against Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein and Maxwell were connected with major players on both sides of the political spectrum who have a lot to lose if Maxwell discusses their involvement with Epstein’s criminal network. With how many people that Epstein was connected to there is no telling what can be revealed in the upcoming trial.

Epstein allegedly died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.

Nancy Pelosi Reelected As House Speaker In Narrow Vote

Nancy Pelosi won another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives on Sunday, after a narrow vote.

80-year-old Pelosi will hold the position for a second consecutive two-year term and fourth overall, having previously been elected in 2007, 2009 and 2019.

Pelosi has served as a US representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

As House speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration’s landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.

Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections.

She retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House.

When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955.

Under Pelosi’s leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.

Despite supporting the $2000 checks for struggling Americans, Pelosi, along with everyone in congress have provoked anger from citizens who see them as being out of touch with the average people.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in 2009 that Pelosi’s average net worth was $58 million which ranks her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress.

Roll Call said Pelosi’s earnings are connected to her husband’s heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook. Roll Call reported that the Pelosis have $13.46 million in liabilities including mortgages on seven properties.

According to Roll Call, Pelosi and her husband hold properties “worth at least $14.65 million, including a St. Helena vineyard in Napa Valley worth at least $5 million, and commercial real estate in San Francisco”.
