The forecasters don’t seem to agree on where Irma is supposed to turn north, about the only thing they’re currently agreeing on is it hitting southern Florida.
Not much else to do except put your trust in the Drowned God I guess.
What is dead may never die.
The really awful thing is that the tip of Florida may be getting it twice.
I'm sure somewhere on the internet there's already a video of whatever Jose's doing out there set to the Mexican Hat Dance.
E: whoops kind of huge but I can't resize it on my phone and also I'm not sure how to do that without breaking the animation anyway..
Last I heard Jose was projected to just dissipate in the Atlantic before it even got to the US, though it was still supposed to hit some islands again.
My mini-armageddon is waiting for the DACA police to take me back to Russia.
During my five years of living in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, I was worried of this thing happening. Relief efforts will also be delayed since the main roads will also be slammed by the hurricane. Lastly, dear friends of mine are staying in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale metropolis despite the fact that they're about to be hit by the bloody monster (while in a tiny, cheep condo). Feel free to pray for the soon-to-be victims and those already effected by this damn weather.
Also, donate some money or time to the Caribbean Islands and Florida relief efforts if you all can. (Donate to Texas as well.)
P.S. Irma broke a world-wide record for a hurricane with the longest sustained winds over 180 mph. I think it was about 72 hrs.
I'm kind of in that mindset right now. Wasn't even alive for Andrew but my parents had to go through that and all of the ones that came after it. They've taken precautions for Irma but are set on staying here and riding it out. I've lived in Florida for all of my life and this is kind of a first for me with how people are reacting according to the news. None of my neighbors are leaving the state or leaving their homes, and people are actually outside having a BBQ in the cul de sac as we speak (according to them its to cook the meat and etc they still had in their fridge in case if the power went out). One couple down the street is more worried about looting that may occur afterwards than the storm itself.
We've stocked up and friends of my parents are coming over later today to stay with us due to their house being right on the water (They have two dogs that are easily the size of a ten-year-old child and speaking from personal experience they are terrified of fireworks, let alone storms. Can't wait to see how that's going to turn out). My roommate went back to stay with her family in Orlando and a previous roommate is keeping in touch with her family (she decided to remain in the dorms), which are all either in or around the Miami area. So for every store/station that we've come across so far the gas is gone, the bread is gone, the sandbags are gone, the water is there for about twenty minutes and then its gone. The twinkies are surprisingly untouched.
^ pretty much, and especially the beer part.
So far it's pretty calm here, at least where I'm at anyway.
If that last chart you posted is accurate, the green edges of the hurricane isn't even hitting the area, let alone the colorful chewy center.
Yeah you're probably good as long as you don't get any people from Charlotte evacuating to your town.
That chart makes it look like the country caught HURRICANE AIDS after Florida fucks Irma's stormy diseased hole.
In Elizabeth City actually. Just moved here.
Hey, I live in NC as well.
If I volunteer to be thrown in a volcano, does that mean I can leave the summer slam contest incomplete and not be SHAMED?
Alright, never mind then. I don't volunteer to be thrown in a volcano. Maybe after I complete my rushed and last minute contest entry.
Thanks mizal! As long as the power still works (or whenever it come back on afterwards) I'll be sure to update on how its going later.
Oh crap. One of my good friends lives in Tampa. :<
I hope everyone in Florida and those other states nearby stay safe. ;-;
O.o Two more hurricanes right after Harvey! I hope people in Florida make it out ok.
I feel really lucky to be living near the great lakes. No fire no floods...
Same! I live by the Great Lakes too. Only got snow problems to worry about.
Haha yeah we're really pretty well protected from natural disasters, aren't we? No tornados, no hurricanes, no sea-level rising, no west coast earthquakes, no forests to catch fire ... Well, sometimes we get four seasons in a day, but we're pretty ok
Are you on the US side or the Canadian side?
There was another guy a day ago that said he was going to ride out the hurricane in his boat since he was an experienced sailor and had been through storms before. And he figured when the water rises he'll be safe due to the boat being able to float on top of it.
Also said he took a homeless guy with him since he said it would be safer for him aboard the boat rather than on land.
Unless you've died since you made this post, it hasn't gone the absolute worst way for your survival.
Lol just saw this:
Don't shoot the hurricane, people!
Finally I have something to pay attention to!
Dude surfing Irma like a suicidal idiot
And a plane flies with passengers between the arm and the main body of the hurricane.
