Trump displays incorrectly altered map of Hurricane Dorian path

WASHINGTON: Trouble is coming for US President Donald Trump after giving the incorrect information on Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory.

It was during an Oval Office press conference on Wednesday when Trump displayed a map from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) showing the devastating storm’s initial predicted path.

While holding up the poster board to give the journalists a better view, it was seen that the map had been edited showing Dorian’s cone extending to what appeared a black marker that includes the state of Alabama.

A few hours later, Trump was asked about the surprising addition and he responded, “I don’t know. I don’t know,“ while continuing to maintain that the initial storm predictions included the possibility that Dorian would make landfall in the southern state.

He even incorrectly tweeted on Sunday that Alabama was among the states together with Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas that could be affected by the hurricane.

However, the National Weather Service’s (NWS) office in Birmingham, Alabama responded in contrary.

 “Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian,“ it tweeted. “We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”
