There are times I wish there were a DEFCON type system for hurricane preparedness. I was born and raised in Florida, and went through Andrew when I was a kid. To everyone on the southeast coast, be prepared to move to shelter at a moment's notice. And send some prayers to the poor souls in the Bahamas.

I am flummoxed as to why people are continually unprepared for these. They live in an area that is hit by hurricanes every year, yet every year they aren't ready. They don't have supplies stored up. They don't have plans to get out of the way.

Nuclear war can sneak up on you. Hurricanes you can see very plainly.

Exactly, thank you! I remember especially my grandparents, we'd always evacuate to their house because they were more inland. They always kept at least a 2 week supply of food, water, and a radio on standby at all times. And we were taught how to track hurricanes on a map using coordinates. So many people nowadays are moving to hurricane prone areas and have no idea of how to prepare.

Hell, the officials had to tell people not to panic and drive up the coast. Just pay attention
