  7. I live in Panama City beach and I'll tell you this much, we have still not recovered from Hurricane Michael. If this storm goes into the gulf and north to us, a lot of people are screwed. I know many people who are still living in campers because they lost everything last year.

  8. I really hope we all make out without costly damages, and stay safe throughout this.

    I can deal with a lil rain and wind, maybe a lil power loss. But side from that I hope our families, and homes remain safe throughout this.

  16. All these idiots need to do is pour a few thousand gallons of soybean oil in front of the hurricane. That will calm it down and prevent billions in damage. They just can't figure out that edible soybean oil in a monolayer would diminish evaporation–the fuel for the storm–and diminish winds. It's Ben Franklin's idea. Watch "Crazy Lake Experiment" on YouTube, it scales up. I deployed 200 gallons around Key West to make a 129 square mile monomolecular sheen and it knocked Hurricane Irma down to a category 3. Oil spreads at between 0.1 and 0.3m/s.

  17. Evacuation is always a money maker for Florida. It's a scam. They get millions of dollars of revenue on gas, food, hotels, restaurants, it's more than tourism. This is all bullshit when you look back on history. This storm is days away. Don't fall for the hype. Storms ONLY affect coastlines. Storms only affect 100 miles of coastline. They have no idea where it's going this early in the game. You're being played a fool and they're taking your money. I've stayed home through 8 hurricanes since the 1970s. I laugh at all the tired travelers coming back home every time.

  18. God keeps sending hurricanes but people still insist on staying gay.

  24. Can't hear it. volume up please.

  25. Not Floridas first rodeo. The government and the people have done a great job in this state building infrastructure and putting emergency plans in place. Whats dangerous is stupid people acting like the world ends tomorrow.

  26. Greetings from near the Gulf Coast in Alabama to our dear neighbors in Florida. Take care and good luck, y'all.

  27. Hopefully this is the one that wipes that wretched state off the map. Florida is like a cyst on America's ass.
