The deadly forces of nature have been especially bad this year, especially for some places in the Caribbean, and southern United States. The latest raging storm, named Hurricane Maria, is threatening to batter the Caribbean all over again after residents are barley recovering from Hurricane Irma.

At this point, all of the projections and global weather models indicate the Caribbean will be next and has already caused "widespread damage" to Dominica with Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands next in line. Hurricane Maria is already category 5 and if you follow the predictions will be expected to hit the US East Coast next week.

The most recent warnings from the NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) say that "preparations against life-threatening Hurricane Maria should be "rushed to completion" as the storm's eye is only about 60 miles southeast from St Croix and 160 miles southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
