I have an aunt and uncle who live in Bradenton.
My mom finally got word from them earlier this evening, they made it to Orlando and are hunkering down at a friend's house until it's safe to go back.
They have no idea what's going to end up happening to their home and business and whether or not the buildings are going to still be there in 24
hours. They don't even know how many of their neighbours made it out of Dodge or where any of them may be at.
They say it's chaotic pandemonium everywhere right now... no gas, no food, no nothing... just chaos and confusion.
But at least my aunt and uncle are safe and sound for the time being and not stuck in their car on some damn highway somewhere.
Fingers crossed for everyone in the path of this thing.
There's a good possibility that Irma may work its way back up to a Cat 5 before she finishes her job.
