    This looks like a proper grade A cunt:

    Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh appeared to indicate that he was evacuating his Florida home, just days after expressing skepticism about the seriousness of Hurricane Irma and floating unfounded theories about why media outlets were aggressively covering the looming storm.

    I would expect that anyone here that knows they live in a flood zone would have moved out. For those of you in the peninsula that live in higher elevations, you still need to take the winds seriously. It will rip out roofs and flatten wooden homes (and some shit brick ones too). Winds over 100mph for hours on end is not a joke... that moving air and rain mass will obliterate anything not sturdily built. I hope DC and others living inland have stocked up on food and water. Remember that if water packets are sold out you can get water from canned foods (which you can also eat). Also find a way to cover windows facing the direction of the wind with wood panels or even old mattresses (nail them into the wall with those massive nails).

    Hide your car on the other side of the house if possible and with no room in garage with windshield facing wind, to reduce wind profile and possible damage, and maybe anchor the car to something strong. Also if possible also chain a padded cover made of steel or a half wooden table top (with a glued padding against windshield) over windshield by passing the cable around the wheel wells and over the top bag holders), to prevent damage, but hide inside a house bathtub or an inner windowless room, because the car can still be hit by large debris like wooden beams and impale you.



    Notice that the cone is the probability spread for the CENTER, or the eye of the hurricane. Anything North to East of where the eye goes through will be leveled. The rest will suffer significant but not as bad damage. The storm surge approximation is as shown above, darkest color means 3+ meters above normal.



    Godspeed Miami.

    Anyone looting in central Florida would have to have a death wish lol, tons of heavily armed rednecks

    I personally know at least one person with an arsenal living down the road.

    So, after the hurricane, will there be more "Florida man" stories, or less?
