On Friday, two massive storms -- Hurricane Florence and Typhoon Mangkhut -- made devastating landfall on opposite ends the world, but are leaving behind destruction in different ways.

The FBI swooping in on a Blackhawk means that "time" was a factor in the "effectiveness" of their response. That the FBI shut down the post office is really interesting. Makes me think someone (unidentified) was trying to get the word out, about something, and the FBI was called in to rapidly shut down efforts to communicate beyond the observatory.
