If You Are in the Path of Hurricane Florence, Beware! Don’t Mess With Major Hurricanes!

Ok, I know I don’t have to say this to the prudent among you; these words are for the unwise.

Don’t mess around with Category 5 hurricanes! If you live in the Carolinas or near there you must take care to be safe this weekend.

  • Yes, I know that rich folks will be gone from home and will leave their stuff behind for you to steal. However, if you stay to loot you will either likely die or someone else will have to risk their lives to rescue you.
  • Yes, I know that idiots stay behind to loot and might take your stuff. However, if you stay behind to protect your stuff then it might get destroyed anyway and you will likely either die or someone else will have to risk their lives to rescue you.
  • Yes, folks just love to find an opportunity to drink and dance like it’s the end of the world. However, if you stay to hold a storm party it just might be the end of the world for you and those partying with or someone else will have to risk their lives to rescue you.

I could go on and on.

Even if the hurricane is not a cat 4 or cat 5, ALL hurricanes spawn tornadoes of random sizes and in random places and any tornado above about a 2 will shred the building that you are in and kill you.

If you live in a mobile home, the prognosis for any hurricane above a Cat 2 is that it will shred the house.

If you live on an island or peninsula and are in the path of the storm, your house will probably be washed out to sea, best not be in it or on it. There will be nowhere to run.

Don’t be an idiot.

Get out of town; come back after the storm.

The roads are not typically enough to move everyone at once, so stay informed and give yourself plenty of time to get away. Use this website…
