Hurricane Maria pummels Puerto Rico

Mother nature is wreaking havoc on Puerto Rico yet again. 

Maria is now a Category 4 with estimated maximum sustained winds of 155 mph that made landfall on Puerto Rico at around 6am this morning. A weather reporter described the winds as sounding like "a woman screaming at the top of her lungs." Maria is the first Category 4 storm to make landfall in Puerto Rico in 85 years. The storm's hurricane-force wind field cover more than 7,500 square miles with Puerto Rico's size being only 5,300 square miles. Maria’s cloud shield stretches about 600 miles, which is the distance from Washington DC to Chicago.

Our prayers are with Puerto Rico.

Other entries include “sriracha,” "alt-right," "concealed carry" and "open carry."
