I’m in Tampa helping to get my folks out. There is already bad flooding from the surge all along the coastal areas.


#3

What are they still doing there? Didn’t they get evacuation orders?


#4

Yeah but they have mobility issues. Evacuation orders work just fine for people who are able-bodied and who can transport themselves without assistance. They don’t work so well for the disabled.


#5

Just so we have some context here…there has never been a storm this intense (at as forecast at landfall) to hit the FL panhandle. I checked records pretty far back and I couldnt find a Cat 4, let alone Cat 5 intensity that hit in this area. I certainly hope people left. At this point, if I had options, I would probably think about moving farther inland from Tallahassee or Dothan. The damage there will probably be extensive and they will be without power for weeks.


#6

I left Pensacola last night. This happened so quickly that everyone was scrambling to make preparations, gather animals, find a place to stay, insist that cranky, very elderly neighbors evacuate with them—all in an incredibly limited time frame.

I’m just genuinely worried about the people who I know really well that elected to stay. And for the first responders that I know who have to.


#7

Stay safe out there @Pozzed @Anna @Joe and to anyone else in Florida that I might have missed.


#8

If this thing stays at CAT 5 when it makes landfall we are talking destruction levels that haven’t been seen since Katrina…and maybe worse.


#9

They are saying on the news ladfall will probably be at CAT 4. Still bad but better than CAT 5.

My weather livestream of choice:


#12

Tallahassee is a Democrat stronghold. Let’s hope it takes more of them than it takes of our people.


#13

Tallahassee is run by Gilliam, I’m sure he’s telling his people they will be millionaires in 48 hours … free food and housing coming!


#14

The Florida governor has been on TV the last 5 hours telling people that it is too late to evacuate. The storm is barely moving.

THEY ARE TRYING TO INFLATE THE DEATH TOLLS! THEY NEED ANOTHER EXCUSE TO TAKE MORE OF YOUR MONEY FOR CLIMATE CHANGE AND FEMA FOR BLACKS!

Why would anyone willingly live on the Gulf Coast?


#19

There are many pretty white sand beaches along with good gun laws and low taxes.
