  1. I thought I was looking at bangladesh

  2. Need ferry boat until finish construction bridges

  3. Seems like that portion of the bridge was an accident waiting to happen

  4. There are three elevated spans in the Sanibel Causeway. Span A suffered bridge damage near the toll booth. The artificial island that begins Span B (fill sand) washed out. The second Island that begins Span C (fill sand) washed out and the end of Span C (Sanibel Island) also washed out. The Sanibel Causeway was built less than 20 years ago.

  5. God is punishing Florida. Repent thy sins Florida and tell Florida man to stop doing meth and surrender himself to the lord and beg for mercy before hellfire comes!

  6. I guess if you evacuated, your screwed

  7. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples:"The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.
    So you must be careful to do everything they tell you.
    But do not do what they do,
    for they do not practice what they preach.

    They tie up heavy cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders,
    but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see:
    They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;
    they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues;
    they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.

    But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant.
    For those who exalt themselves will be humbled,
    and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FOR YOURSELF AN IMAGE in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them, or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents, up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me, and keep my commandments.

    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    AND WHEN YOU PRAY DO NOT BE LIKE THE HYPOCRITES, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners, to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
    BUT WHEN YOU PRAY, GO INTO YOUR ROOM, close the door, and pray to your Father who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
    And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need, before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you,
    your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
    But if you do not forgive others their sins,
    your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples;
    then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    Yet a time is coming and has now come
    when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in Truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
    GOD IS SPIRIT, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in Truth.

    In the New Heaven and the New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  8. Has the A.C.E. been called in?
    Hope they can get some help asap

  9. Floridians need to realize they live on swamp land in a hurricane zone and this will happen again. MOVE. You will be flooded out again.

  10. They're going to need a ferry for a while.

  11. Oh no! Someone needs to take a boat to Florida and save them!

  12. One of my favorite vacation islands for 32 years. Very unique ecosystem as 2/3rds of Sanibel is a nature preserve. It is a sanctuary island. It is a piece of old Florida that doesn't exist anywhere else. The causeway collapse will devastate the economy, not to mention make it extremely hard and prolonged to rebuild and rescue. This is devastating for the entire SW part of the state. It will take years to rebuild and maybe even longer to get the flora and fauna back to it's former glory. I'm sick to my stomach. We haven't even considered/seen the death toll yet. Sad, sad day.

  13. This damm hurricane is crazy I never see nothing like this

  14. 'How will people get home?'
    It's called a 'boat'.

  15. Need to run large ferry’s to get people to and from island 😢

  16. Gonna be begging for "Sleepy Joe's" radical leftist money.

  17. Dang , I wish I had some documented migrants now 😢
    Maybe 👨‍🦽 could send me some he owes me a few favors 😏
    And I could pay them with $10 gift card to MikeyDeez
    I have 100s left .

  18. Criminal Trump said that there was no Climate change, what you think now Florida Republicans?

  19. Take a boat. New business.

  20. DUMB PLACE to live. No don't rebuild, there will be more hurricanes. For years to come, like forever after.

  21. Lol so you get paid a lot to ask the questions we all have… this is news at its finest

  22. they build it on the top of the sand.. what would u expect? it will eventually get destroyed

  23. Biden Vows Next Hurricane To Hit US Will Be Named After A Woman Of Color

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — As Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida, Biden held a press conference to criticize the hurricane naming system and vow that the next major storm will be named after a woman of color.
    "Seriously! Irma? Michael? Andrew? Ian? What's with all these white names, folks?" said Biden to several of his dead acquaintances who he saw sitting in the audience. "Why can't we have a Rosa Parks hurricane? Or maybe an Oprah? For real! It's not a joke! Come on, man!"
    The World Meteorological Association immediately responded to Biden's request and confirmed they have several names of influential women of color they hope to use for the next deadly tropical cyclone.
    At publishing time, sources confirmed Hurricane Lizzo is scheduled to make landfall next week.
