Per Freed's request, this is being cross-posted with the Trump thread in Politics - mods feel free to delete one or the other if you so desire.

The Trump administration has changed the rules allowing Bahamians to legally enter the US. Until last night they could enter visa-free via plane (meaning a current passport only) but immediately following the hurricane, CBP relaxed the requirement and allowed them also to enter via boat/ferry. Not anymore - it was changed last night without warning or notice.

In order to get a visa, they have to go through the US embassy in Nassau, but that is closed for the foreseeable future due to damage/flooding from the hurricane.

Ditto this one

NOAA’s Chief Scientist to Investigate why Agency Backed Trump Over Its Experts on Dorian

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/noaas- ... ocid=ientp

Quote:
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s acting chief scientist said in an email to colleagues Sunday that he is investigating whether the agency’s response to President Trump’s Hurricane Dorian tweets constituted a violation of NOAA policies and ethics.

In an email to NOAA staff that was obtained by The Washington Post, the official, Craig McLean, called the agency’s response “political” and a “danger to public health and safety.”

President Trump’s incorrect assertion on Sept. 1 that Alabama “would most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated" set off a chain of confusion and outrage among the public, and within NOAA. At the time, the National Weather Service’s forecast guidance showed only a very small risk (about 5 percent) of tropical storm-force winds for a small portion of Alabama. However, Alabama was not in the storm forecast track from the National Hurricane Center, which showed Hurricane Dorian skirting the East Coast.

While the NWS’s Birmingham office set the record straight, stating Alabama “would not see impacts” from the storm, NOAA officials caused an internal uproar on Sept. 6 when the agency issued an unsigned statement that defended Trump’s false claim about Alabama and admonished the Weather Service’s Birmingham division for speaking “in absolute terms.”
