There is free wifi across Florida now through Sept. 15, so people can stay connected during #HurricaneIrma .

Click image for details.

Also, anybody who witnesses any price gouging is urged to report offenders to the Attorney General's office. The have 50 people on full time and 60 volunteers fielding calls. They are taking this very seriously and are enforcing strictly by threatening to fine and destroy the reputation of businesses involved in thee immoral acts. Price gougers may be shot by disgruntled citizens if they do not watch their behavior. I hope they do the right thing.

Pam Bondi publicly rips price gougers
TAMPA — Some 4,000 Floridians have called in complaints over price gouging since Monday as residents shop and travel in preparation for Hurricane Irma, Attorney General Pam Bondi said Thursday. "Shame on you if you're trying to gouge someone (for) water, food, baby supplies," Bondi said, addressing media at an office where staffers process the complaints.

During a state of emergency, Florida companies can't sell essential commodities — like food, water or emergency generators — at a price that "grossly exceeds" its average price for the previous 30 days. "You can't take advantage of your fellow Floridians," Bondi said. "You can't do that. And shame on anybody who would want to do that, who wants to make an extra buck and hurt people who are trying to get out of our state."

The state can charge a one-time violator $1,000, and repeat offenders may have to pay up to $25,000. "We can hurt you financially, but we can also destroy your reputation by telling everybody that you're bad and telling everybody not to shop at your business," Bondi said.

Bondi said the state is staffed with 50 full-time employees fielding calls and 60 additional volunteers. They are now getting about 100 complaints an hour, and is glad the word seems to be spreading. "My goal is to fix it. My goal is to make sure everyone has a hotel, people have water, people have fuel at a reasonable cost so they can get out of town." Anyone who sees potential price gouging can call the office's hotline, tollfree, at 1-866-966-7226.


Seriously, do it immediately if you see it. The State is not putting up with this behavior and any shopkeepers found guilty are going to lose that ill gotten gains with fines.

Never (always) fear, Lee might be joining the... the...hurricane threesome.





It does not happen frequently, but could be called a common phenomenon based solely on recent history.

My daughter in and two of her friends are going to ride it out in Miami. They have a room rented pretty high up and have food and water stocked up but I really don't think they know what they are in for.


I would really try to talk them out of it. If power is lost, no elevators and stairwells may be obstructed/flooded....for weeks.

Saying a Prayer for safety and sanity for them. They won't be able to charge cell phones and computers either.

My family is brain dead enough to ride out the storm down in Miami with little to no preparation and so I have to just hope we don't get taken out by a HURRICANE of all things. Our home isn't composed of wood, so there's that.

The higher you are the harder the wind blows...... high up is not a good thing in a hurricane... taller building has more surface area so the air can transfer more energy. As well higher up the winds dont have the friction of the ground and blow even faster and harder.....

I will pray for them...

Where do you get that number? Im appalled by the people who laugh at this destruction. The first responders will not be put at risk. The state says it wont put lives at risk for the wreckless. Those stayibg it out are on their own.

I listened to a bit of AJ this evening on youtube live or something and he in no uncertain words told people to take this very seriously, he went on to state that he normally steers clear of these events but that this one is different. He said much more and did it in such a way as to not cause undue stress for people in an already stressful situation.

The water on the gulf side is shallower. That should cause a higher surge which the map seems to indicate.

I know it doesn't seem like much espcially compared to other hurricanes. I am guessing that combined with the rainfall is the issue.

We'd get about that or more inland Ft. Laud, feet below sea level, during big rains. The coast, only slightly above sea level areas, built up beaches, aren't going to fair as well.

Look st the latest track www.nhc.noaa.gov...

A storm surge warning is serious. It means a life threatening situation! They don't issue warnings without good reason.


Granted things might change , a sudden turn, weakening, but even then this storm is wider than all of Florida.


Storm Surge Warning means there is a danger of life-threatening
inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline,
during the next 36 hours in the indicated locations. For a
depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather
Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at
hurricanes.gov. This is a life-threatening situation. Persons
located within these areas should take all necessary actions to
protect life and property from rising water and the potential for
other dangerous conditions. Promptly follow evacuation and other
instructions from local officials.
