The way they make it sound this could be the end of Western Civilization. Human sacrifice...dogs and cats living together...mass hysteria. It seems to be on a straight ahead trajectory to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Cuba. Possibly Florida afterwards?

They should rename it Hurricane Mohammad. No one is evacuating over an Irma.

I'm going to Myrtle Beach in a couple weeks, so I'm just hoping it stays south. As for the Sodomites of South Beach, well you're not laughing at us Buffalonians now, are you? At least we don't have to build from scratch every decade.

This looks like this could be catastrophic, but then again there have been so many false alarms before when hurricanes go back out to sea who knows?

The big deal is to evecuate or not?

Oftentimes the highways out of town cannot handle the volume of everybody panicking at the same time which can endanger groups of people worse than if they had stayed put, but if you do stay and it hits, you're damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Were it me, I would ride it out, if my grandchildren were with me and their safety were at stake I would get the hell out of there.

Instead of blindly buying into the hysteria people need to weight the options of staying or going. We looked at the facts and chose to stay when 90% of our immediate area bounced. Our specific area did not flood but it did a very short distance away. I've spoken to people from our block that evacuated for Harvey and had to be rescued from where they evacuated to and others had a fine time so it's really a crap shoot.

Rush Limbaugh is blaming Al Gore or something.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/rush-limbaugh-hurricane-irma_us_59af580ee4b0dfaafcf39424

Right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh is once again playing the role of hurricane truther, but with a twist.

Last year, Limbaugh said the storms were somehow part of a liberal conspiracy to push a climate change agenda. This year, he has said they’re also part of a media plot to help advertisers sell bottled water and emergency supplies.

As Hurricane Irma neared the Caribbean with winds of up to 185 mph, Limbaugh said:

“Here comes a hurricane, local media goes on the air, ‘Big hurricane coming, oh, my God! Make sure you got batteries. Make sure you got water. It could be the worst ever. Have you seen the size of this baby? It’s already a Cat 5. Oh, my God, oh, my God, it’s bigger than the island of Haiti. Oh, my God.’ People run to the stores, they stock up everything, and they hoard. And they end up with vacant stores, nothing there. And it’s a big success. TV stations got eyeballs, the advertising businesses have sold out of business, gotta restock and the cycle repeats.”


In a transcript of his Tuesday radio show, Limbaugh repeatedly complained about the stores in Palm Beach ― where he lives and broadcasts from ― being out of water despite the uncertainty of the storm’s path.

Limbaugh also claimed the storm was being used to push an environmental agenda. He said, “People in all of these government areas” are “hell-bent” on proving climate change.

“You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic,” he said. “You don’t need a hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent and bigger and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it’s mission accomplished, agenda advanced.”

Even Hurricane Harvey, which devastated portions of the Gulf Coast of Texas, was part of this conspiracy.

“Hurricane Harvey and the TV pictures that accompany that go a long way to helping further and create the panic,” Limbaugh said.

After spending the entire segment politicizing storm preparations and coverage, Limbaugh lamented how political everything has become.

“I wish that not everything that involved news had become corrupted and politicized, but it just has,” he said.

Limbaugh made similar comments about hurricanes last year, claiming the storms were being used to push a political agenda.

“It’s in the interest of the left to have destructive hurricanes because then they can blame it on climate change, which they can desperately continue trying to sell,” he said in October 2016.

The store part is funny

Coming from California I had never seen anything like it until we went thru a big rain storm in Texas. The local news was hyping it up and we went to Kroger that Friday like we do every other Friday and the damn place was wiped out. No water, beer, milk, meat, chips, batteries. I joke all the time that the grocery stores have a deal with the local news.

They do the same thing when it even threatens to have snow flurries in North Carolina.
People love a good panic.

Lol so true, even though most of the actual city looks like bombs went off and was never rebuilt.

I need to get my gas-guzzling car with a payment $100 a month more than I can handle down to Florida, where it will be flipped over and have a tree land on top of it. Just thinking out loud.

It is a Geo Metro? Those things seem to have issues with Tornados, and most likely Hurricanes as well.
