‘They Just Panic’: Elderly Residents Face Evacuation Challenges During Storms

Westlake Legal Group  'They Just Panic': Elderly Residents Face Evacuation Challenges During Storms

A line of utility trucks moves in Monday as the outer bands of Hurricane Dorian approach in Charleston, S.C. Residents in Charleston and many other coastal areas are under an evacuation order.

The firefighters came on Monday. They went up and down the halls, knocking on every apartment in the six-story Ansonborough House building in downtown Charleston, S.C., and leaving notices on the doors of those who didn’t answer: This area is under mandatory evacuation.

The manager of the building heeded the warning and left a note on the window in the lobby explaining that the building would not be staffed all week.

And yet, on Wednesday morning, small groups of residents stood in the parking lot and on the sidewalk out front, enjoying the light rain and fresh air. “I think everybody is still here except a handful,” says Clara Hale, a pastor in her 70s who lives on the second floor.

As coastal communities from Florida to Virginia order or consider evacuation for residents, emergency officials are being forced to grapple with a difficult coincidence — many of the places most prone to Atlantic hurricanes are also popular retirement locations for a ballooning number of seniors.

“Evacuating for older adults is definitely a more challenging situation,” says Sue Anne Bell, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing who studies how older Americans are affected by disasters.

Bell also worked with seniors during Hurricane Irma in Florida and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and she says one barrier to evacuation is that people who are living on a fixed income might not have the financial flexibility to pay for transportation or a hotel room.

Slow-moving, wet storms such as Dorian — storms that are more common as the climate changes — can be especially frustrating because they linger for many days, increasing both the emotional and financial cost of evacuating.

But staying in the path of a storm is dangerous.

“We often think of disasters as immediate emergencies,” Bell says. “But really what I see more of is people with chronic medical conditions that need routine care that they’re not able to get.” That includes people who need dialysis or chemotherapy or who rely on medication to treat cardiovascular disease.

Many of those risks apply to the residents of Ansonborough House in Charleston, which was built to provide affordable independent housing for seniors.

On Wednesday morning, Hale’s neighbor woke her up at the crack of dawn asking for a lift to the dialysis clinic she goes to three times a week. Hale is still working as a pastor and she has a car, so many people rely on her for rides.

“I’m the Uber for this place,” she laughs. It’s potentially life-saving work. The cab that Hale’s neighbor had called to pick her up never arrived, and the dispatcher wasn’t answering the phone. Most businesses in town closed after the evacuation order went out.

“I don’t know what she would have done if I didn’t take her [to her dialysis appointment],” Hale says. “Probably just not go. Which is bad, you know?”

Hale’s neighbor, Judith Allen, has lived in the building for 14 years and says there are at least a dozen residents who rely on medical devices that use electricity and who are worried that the building will lose power.

A new poll of more than 2,200 people between the ages of 50 and 80 nationwide found that about 9% of respondents use medical devices that require electricity, such as oxygen concentrators. However, only 25% of those people had a backup power source for their device.

“A power loss could have big consequences for those who depend on those devices,” says Bell, who helped develop the poll. A study of nursing homes after Hurricane Irma in 2017 found that power outages from that storm contributed to the deaths of at least eight people in Florida.

“It’s so stressful,” says Allen, who says she feels responsible for her neighbors who use such devices. She thinks about a dozen people in her building rely on oxygen. “It affects them catastrophically. They just panic. And I can’t blame them.”

The poll also found one big bright spot when it comes to seniors and disaster preparedness: The majority of respondents had a seven-day supply of water, food and medication.

Still, there’s clearly room for improvement when it comes to planning ahead for major disasters. Fewer than half of those polled said they had spoken to loved ones about a plan for evacuating or otherwise dealing with a storm, fire or other disaster.

Eddie Murphy Says He’s Doing A Standup Tour

Westlake Legal Group 5d52dbc12400006100b772d2 Eddie Murphy Says He’s Doing A Standup Tour

The comedian said he’s launching a stand-up comedy tour in 2020.

Murphy didn’t provide details of the tour, but joked that he was ready to get off the couch. He said the timing was right, given the buzz for his new film “Dolemite Is My Name,” in which he plays real-life ’70s blaxploitation star and comic Rudy Ray Moore. The Netflix film premieres at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.

“I wanted to have a movie that was really, really funny,” he said.

Murphy, 58, is guest-hosting “Saturday Night Live” on Dec. 21 in his first full appearance on the show since 1984, when he was a cast member. The comic is also set to appear in a “Coming To America” sequel.

Kevin Sorbo’s faith-based action film ‘The Reliant’ defends Second Amendment

Kevin Sorbo stars in a faith-based, politically driven action film that’s set for a one-night-only theatrical run.

The film, titled “The Reliant,” is based on a 2017 novel of the same name by author Patrick Johnston, who also wrote the screenplay. Both the film and the book deal heavily with questions of faith in God during a time of crisis, as well as one’s Second Amendment rights.

DOLLY PARTON, CHRISTIAN DUO FOR KING & COUNTRY TEAM UP ON SONG ‘GOD ONLY KNOWS’: GOD ‘LOVES US’

“After an innocent trip to the store ends in rioting and chaos, father of five, Rick (Kevin Sorbo) rushes home desperate to gather his family and find safety,” the film’s official synopsis reads. “His plans are dashed when the very same armed men suddenly appear, led by the ruthless Jack (Brian Bosworth). Caught in the deadly crossfire, the children are forced to seek shelter in the surrounding woods.”

A still from the upcoming movie “The Reliant” featuring protesters rioting in a small U.S. town. (‘The Reliant’)

The synopsis continues: “Alone and vulnerable, the children’s faith and family bonds are pushed to the limit, especially those of the eldest daughter, Sophie (Mollee Gray), who questions the morality of gun ownership but soon learns that in God all things are good, including her family’s Second Amendment right to defend themselves. It is now up to the children to reclaim their home, find their parents and put an end to Jack’s rampage.”

SURVIVALIST BEAR GRYLLS SHARES HOW TO ‘BE STILL WITH GOD’ IN DEVOTIONAL BOOK

In the trailer for the film, civil unrest seems to explode in the family’s small town, prompting a hasty retreat to the safety of the woods. The film deals heavily with the concept of outlawing guns and, as the movie posits, leaving only outlaws armed and dangerous in the U.S.

Unfortunately for those hoping to see “The Reliant” in theaters, the window to do so is very limited. According to the film’s website, it will only be in theaters for one night on Oct. 24, 2019 in select theaters across the country.

The film was launched by way of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign started by Johnston. A second campaign was launched after principle production ended in 2016 to help with post-production costs. On the second campaign’s page, Johnston warns Americans about the potential for the events in this movie to become a reality.

“We are one terrorist attack away from giving up our right to keep-and-bear-arms,” he writes. “With our government corporately willing to spurn the Constitution in so many ways, the Second Amendment is practically meaningless to our leaders. We need to reach the culture with this important message of the moral foundation for our natural right to defend ourselves.”

Worm’s 550M year-old ‘death march’ might be earliest known animal trail, study finds

The fossil of a worm that lived 550 million-years-ago may be the earliest known evidence of an animal walking on the Earth’s surface, according to a new study.

The research, which has been published in Nature, looks at the “death march” of Yilingia spiciformis, which means “spiky Yiling bug” in Chinese. Researchers suggest that animals have walked since the Ediacaran period, which started 635 million years ago, earlier than previously thought.

“This discovery shows that segmented and mobile animals evolved by 550 million years ago,” one of the study’s co-authors, Shuhai Xiao, a professor of geosciences at Virginia Tech, said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “Mobility made it possible for animals to make an unmistakable footprint on Earth, both literally and metaphorically.”

MASS EXTINCTION EVENT 2 BILLION YEARS AGO KILLED 99 PERCENT OF LIFE ON EARTH, STUDY SAYS

Xiao continued: “Those are the kind of features you find in a group of animals called bilaterans. This group includes us humans and most animals. Animals and particularly humans are movers and shakers on Earth. Their ability to shape the face of the planet is ultimately tied to the origin of animal motility.”

Y. spiciformis had a thin body, up to 4 inches in length, 1 inch wide and was comprised of 50 symmetrical segments. Found in China’s Yangtze Gorge, along with 34 other fossils of the same species, researchers believe Y. spiciformis is related to a group of anthropods that includes crustaceans and millipedes or annelids.

By contrast, modern-day earthworms are typically a few inches long, but in some cases, have been known to grow up to 14 inches, according to National Geographic.

Rachel Wood, a professor in the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh, who was not involved with the study, said, “This is a remarkable finding of highly significant fossils. We now have evidence that segmented animals were present and had gained an ability to move across the sea floor before the Cambrian, and more notably we can tie the actual trace-maker to the trace. Such preservation is unusual and provides considerable insight into a major step in the evolution of animals.”

'Hope for the best': Carolina coastal residents flee as Hurricane Dorian marches toward US

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Parts of historic Market Street were under a foot of water and gusting winds blew rain sideways Thursday as Hurricane Dorian continued its unrelenting advance on the U.S. coast, days after devastating parts of the Bahamas.

Hundreds of thousands of coastal residents of the Carolinas were packing up to flee their homes or were already gone. More than 200,000 homes and businesses across the state already were without power.

The historic storm, strengthened a bit to regain Category 3 status, but was about 70 miles southeast of here at 9 a.m. ET Thursday with maximum sustained winds at 115 mph, the National Hurricane Center said.

“It is the water that kills people,” Gov. Henry McMaster said. “Water is the real danger. And it’s clear that we are going to have a lot of water.”

The center warned the storm “continues to lash the coast of the Carolinas” and hurricane conditions are “likely over portions of the area later (Thursday).” The center of the storm “will continue to move close to the coast of South Carolina through the day, and then move near or over the coast of North Carolina (Thursday night) and Friday,” the National Hurricane Center added.

How to get involved: Hurricane Dorian has wreaked havoc on the Bahamas. Here’s how you can help.

Hundreds of thousands of coastal residents in the Carolinas were facing evacuation orders.

“Do not underestimate this dangerous storm,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned. “Listen to your local emergency officials and leave now if they have ordered evacuations.”

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'Hope for the best': Carolina coastal residents flee as Hurricane Dorian marches toward US

Katrina, Maria, Harvey and Sandy are all infamous names belonging to some of the worst hurricanes in history. But where do these names come from? Just the FAQs, USA TODAY

Cooper said an 85-year-old man fell to his death from a ladder while preparing his Columbus County home for the storm. At least 20 deaths in the Bahamas have been linked to Dorian.

Federal emergency declarations have been approved for Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Gov. Ralph Northam declared an emergency in his state as well. 

‘Total devastation. Apocalyptic’: Massive rescue effort in Bahamas

Areas of the coast could see a foot of rain and several feet of storm surge, the hurricane center warned. Hurricane-force winds were extending outward up to 60 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. Winds gusts exceeding 60 mph were recorded in both states early Thursday. 

Ed Rappaport, deputy director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said the Carolinas could see as much as 5 to 8 feet of storm surge. Anything above 3 feet is considered life-threatening, he said.

At the corner of Calhoun and Washington streets near the state aquarium here, John Rivers and daughters, Martha and Caroline, and son, Minott, were raking limb debris that was blocking storm drains.

“The city is doing the best job they can, but they can’t be everywhere at every drain, so we’re helping them out,” Rivers said as the winds and rain carried debris down the street. 

Within minutes, a pool of stormwater that stretched across Washington Street was drained away.

“It’s a teachable moment for them, and they’re also very civic minded,” said Rivers. “My family has been here since 1670, so it’s time for us to pitch in.”

Measles case confirmed in Hawaii resident after traveling to another state: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5998287293001_5998284797001-vs Measles case confirmed in Hawaii resident after traveling to another state: report Madeline Farber fox-news/us/us-regions/west/hawaii fox-news/health/infectious-disease fox news fnc/health fnc article 4d12cc23-51db-5a58-aceb-d695fb4d0ec4

At least one Hawaii resident has been infected with measles, according to a report.

Officials with the state’s Department of Health confirmed the case on Tuesday, according to Hawaii News Now, which added the resident contracted the virus while traveling to another state.

“Because CDC reports cases based on their area of residence, the individual is counted as a Hawaii case even though they contracted the disease in another state,” health officials told the news outlet in a statement. “If DOH had any reported measles case that was locally transmitted, we would announce the information immediately.”

MEASLES CASES IN US HIGHEST SINCE 1992, CDC SAYS

No other details were provided.

The case comes after New York City officials this week declared an end the largest measles outbreak the city has seen in nearly 30 years.

Officials said New York City spent more than $6 million to combat the outbreak, which primarily affected Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn. More than 500 staff were involved in response efforts, which included disseminating pro-vaccination booklets, distributing educational materials in multiple languages, and attending community events, among other efforts.

Measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes. Others can contract measles when they breathe the contaminated air or touch a contaminated surface, and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth.

NEW YORK CITY’S LARGEST MEASLES OUTBREAK IN NEARLY 30 YEARS HAS ENDED, OFFICIALS SAY 

Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before through four days after the rash appears,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says.

The MMR vaccine can protect both individuals and other people from contracting the virus.

Separately, last week federal health officials announced the U.S. is experiencing the highest number of measles cases since the early 1990s. The CDC in its weekly measles cases and outbreaks report said there are 1,215 confirmed measles cases in the U.S., representing an increase of 12 cases from the week before.

He’s destabilizing our entire food production cycle. The food subsidies to Farmers put in protections for big market shifts, ecological issues, over farming, and provide for enough food to be made bare minimum.it stabilizes and protects the supply side of food.

The food stamps provides food to lower income people while providing a built in, controlled market for the food production side. It stabilizes and protects the food demand side.

Trump is an idiot and a terrible person to tip over both apple carts that are inextricably linked together that protects American interests, US interests internationally, and our own vulnerable populations.

Boris Johnson’s brother quits Parliament over Brexit impasse as prime minister accuses opposition of ‘cowardly insult to democracy’

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was dealt a new blow when his brother, Jo Johnson, quit Parliament over the ongoing divide over the Brexit impasse.

Jo Johnson announced Thursday morning that he was stepping down from Parliament because he was “torn between family loyalty and the national interest.”

“It’s an unresolved tension & time for others take on my roles as MP & Minister,” he tweeted, saying he was also quitting as an education minister.

Jo Johnson has long opposed leaving the European Union, voting against it in the 2016 referendum campaign. He later said the country should not quit the bloc without a divorce deal – something his brother appears adamant to pass.

His resignation from Parliament came as the prime minister went on the attack Thursday after lawmakers opposed his push for a new election in October and advance his plans to prevent the country from leaving the EU.

The prime minister, who is determined to secure a general election as a way out of Britain’s years-long Brexit impasse, is set to argue in a speech later today that politicians must “go back to the people and give them the opportunity to decide what they want.”

He had asked Parliament Wednesday to back an Oct. 15 election, after lawmakers moved to block his plan to leave the EU on Oct. 31, even if there is no withdrawal agreement to pave the way. But lawmakers turned down his motion.

The prime minister needed the support of two-thirds of the 650 lawmakers in the House of Commons to trigger an election — a total of 434 — but got just 298, with 56 voting ‘no’ and the rest abstaining.

BREXIT CHAOS: ALL YOUR BIGGEST QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

He slammed Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn following the vote, calling the main opposition figure’s refusal to endorse an election a “cowardly insult to democracy.”

Corbyn, in response, said Labour would only vote for an early election if the prospect of a no-deal Brexit was taken off the table.

“Let the bill pass and have Royal Assent and then we can have a general election,” he said.

Labour economy spokesman John McDonnell said the party wanted an election but was still deciding on whether to seek one before the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline or to wait until Parliament had secured a delay to Britain’s departure from the bloc.

“The problem that we have got is that we cannot at the moment have any confidence in Boris Johnson abiding by any commitment or deal that we could construct,” he told the BBC.

BORIS JOHNSON LOSES MAJORITY IN UK PARLIAMENT AFTER MP DEFECTS

Johnson’s failure to secure a quick ballot was the embattled leader’s third Parliamentary defeat in two days. Just six weeks after taking office with a vow to break Britain’s Brexit deadlock — which ensnared and eventually brought down his predecessor, Theresa May — Johnson’s plans to lead the U.K. out of the EU are in turmoil.

Johnson became prime minister in July by promising to complete Brexit and break the impasse that has paralyzed the country’s politics since voters decided in June 2016 to leave the bloc. But he is caught between the EU, which refuses to renegotiate the deal it stuck with May, and a majority of British lawmakers opposed to leaving without an agreement. Most economists, the Associated Press says, believe a no-deal Brexit would cause severe economic disruption and plunge the U.K. into recession.

Opposition lawmakers, supported by rebels in Johnson’s Conservative Party, are attempting to pass a bill that would block a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31, compelling the prime minister to seek a three-month delay to Britain’s departure if no exit deal has been agreed by late October.

Johnson has accused the opposition of trying to “overturn the biggest democratic vote in our history,” referring to the outcome of the 2016 referendum to leave the EU.

The bill was approved by the House of Commons on Wednesday, but faced trouble in Parliament’s upper chamber, the House of Lords, where pro-Brexit members planned to defeat it by filibustering — talking until time ran out.

But early Thursday, the Lords agreed to allow the bill to pass through the chamber by Friday, allowing it to become law early next week. Johnson plans to suspend Parliament at some point next week until Oct. 14.

The government said Thursday that it will try again next week to trigger an election. Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg says a vote will be held Monday on a motion calling for a snap poll.

Florida cop makes Hurricane Dorian rescue, adopts 6-week-old puppy named ‘Dory’

Police officers in one Florida city made their “first hurricane rescue” Monday after a resident called looking for help for her 6-week-old puppy.

Fort Pierce Police Officers Martin Oritz and Michel Jean were on patrol when they received a call about a local woman who was unable to care for her puppy as Hurricane Dorian threatened to make landfall, police said in a Facebook post.

Officer Jean took an “immediate liking” to the pup, FaceTimed his wife and son and decided on the spot that he would take it home.

Police said that in light of the circumstances – and with a little “nudging” from other officers – Jean settled on a name for his newest family member: Dory, short for Dorian.

He could have just skipped it: he said Alabama but was going on very old and no longer accurate data, the weather service and many in the media called it out to correct it, he could have just ignored it or even done something plausible and blamed a lackey for not showing him newer maps, and let us all move on with things that are still unimportant but matter just a bit more. Instead hes turned it into a full on feud, day after day of “im not wrong, youre wrong”.

If anyone wasnt convinced he is a manbaby capable of only the kind of trite interactions a 5 year old has while trying to talk his way out of punishment for spilling milk on the carpet, we have a NEW best practices guide for that. Turns out that when you point out the President skipped his international obligations to stay home and “monitor the impending dangerous conditions” and instead skips THAT and goes golfing, and gets called out on it because he doesnt actually do jack anything related to being a leader but still has to show off his fancy vocabulary like “alabama” while jumping on/off his helicopter, it really gets under his thin, orange skin.
