On the one hand, yeah, I’m sorry to be so repetitive. On the other hand… Stay safe, y’all…

This footage from a pilot surveying the damage on Abaco is heartbreaking… @opmthebahamas officials able to see for first time. I am hoping to land there this afternoon with sandwiches and fruit, and @WCKitchen will try to establish relief kitchen immediately. #ChefsForBahamas pic.twitter.com/cQ3zbpZUG0

Small good thing: Chella Phillips and her 97 ‘Voiceless Dog’ refugees came through battered but (relatively) safe, per the Washington Post:
… Dorian lingered in the Bahamas for much of the weekend. Phillips told news outlet WFTS on Monday that she lost power and water came into her home at one point, but that all inhabitants — human and canine — were doing okay.
She posted another update to Facebook a few hours later, noting she and her brother had passed “a stressful night” trying to combat serious flooding. All her TVs were “fried” from the lightning, Phillips wrote, which meant “no more cartoons for the sick dogs.”
Her brother slept just an hour, and Phillips went without sleep, she wrote. She stayed awake all night to dry the house and care for the “terrified” animals.
Phillips’s online fundraiser for her refuge, which she launched in August and was unrelated to Hurricane Dorian, had raised roughly $63,000 as of Tuesday morning, far surpassing her original goal of $20,000…
And it’s not over, by a long shot…
Busy times in the #Atlantic Ocean right now: Tropical Storm #Fernand in the western Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Depression Eight in the eastern tropical Atlantic, Hurricane #Dorian off the Southeast coast, and there are still two other areas we're monitoring: https://t.co/oIHbH6pDGF pic.twitter.com/4IylxeRGw0

Um, who invited Fernand to this party? National Hurricane Center has it going toward Mexico, but way too close to Texas for my comfort. pic.twitter.com/XpM62lRtZK

Trump invited him to Alabama.
