Death toll for Dorian has reached over 50. Over 70,000 people now homeless. Guess they're trying to move a lot of people south to Nassau or west to Florida. Can't imagine what Bahamian is going through...it's going to be a very long road to recovery. Hope he can stay strong.

Question for our weather folks: What is it that causes the prevailing systems/currents to drag these things all the way across from Africa, only to have them move north and then boomerang back once they get here? I can guess, but I've never bothered to look.

Not a weather geek but my history background would suspect it has something to do with the prevailing winds that sent ships back and forth following different trade winds in different parts of the Atlantic.... I believe the winds in the North Atlantic go more in a west to east direction while the winds heading east to west tend to be further south, along a similar track as hurricanes tend to follow

Back in the day, when sailing from England to the New World, the route always went from England south, then west towards the Carribean and, finally, north to a landing in the Colonies. Return trips took the reverse route. When relying on wind power, going straight east to west/west to east was not practical because of the prevailing winds. The long route was why a crossing usually took them up to 8-9 months to accomplish. It was a brutal trip for the early Colonists.

So basically a "round trip" to the New World and back literally was a "round trip".... That's what I thought...
