I will never forget being in the Clearwater area during a tropical storm. I watched in awe as car after car drove right into the flooded street, and of course they all died. It was seriously like lemmings over a cliff. I don't know if they were locals or tourists but I couldn't believe my eyes. The amount of people that don't know that cars #1 can't float, #2 will stop working in deep water boggles my mind.

Just wait until we all have to drink recycled sewage water and all of our crops are grown in it! No joke, Goldman Sachs has already come out in support of financing it!

This will be the first significant hurricane to arrive during the daytime in a long time. There will be news media people there in Florida tomorrow afternoon holding onto poles and stop signs as usual.

They no longer show people boarding up houses and emptying shelves in stores and roads filled with cars trying to get away, because that looks the same with every hurricane.

People everywhere drive through floods. Did it myself in Minnesota and got stalled. Yes, it is stupid and dumb but I have done worse. Older and wiser now.

I could almost understand if you were by yourself and tried to test your car. Or didn't realize how deep the water was (yes we have all been young and done dumb things driving)

What I saw in Clearwater was not that.
It was obvious that every single car was dying once it hit the deep water, yet others just followed. One after another. It was unbelievable.

Clearwater eh? Is the Beach by Pier 60 a crowded mess?? I used to like it when I was a kid, but I never go to Clearwater Beach anymore. Its Either Tarpon Springs or Sarasota for me.

How did it look when Irma came through? I was walking all around the empty bay last September when the storm drained it out. Even the river drained out. What did it look like along the beach side??





Its not that I don't take hurricanes seriously, its that after going through my life in Florida I don't see them as a big deal unless your in the direct hit zone during landfall.

i've noticed a tendency in recent years for the media to over-hype every storm. they never used to give so many a name. i suppose scarier headlines sell better.

A category 3 storm is one that you want to be prepared for. Even category 1's are pretty scary inside the home. Ever been in a house when the roof blew off? It's not very fun and I had that happen in a strong Cat 1. The stress of going through such a storm was enough to drive my pro athlete friend into long term mental issues. He pretty much lost everything as a result.

No one should be downplaying this storm. Where it hits will be pretty awful.

I think so too, and that is what worries me.
I'll check out that other thread, thanks!

I think your right, They are downplaying this a bit. where's Cantori clinging to a tree in 20 MPH winds?

they never used to give so many a name.
Every tropical cyclonic storm that has reached Tropical Storm intensity (39 mph) has been named since the 1950s.

You are wrong since they have named every storm of a certain level for decades.

That is like how every year someone posts on ATS about how they just made up polar vortex to scare people.

My mother in law lives in the panhandle. We finally convinced her to drive a few miles up the road to stay with friends, but her initial plan was to not even leave the house because "they always say it's going to be awful and they're always wrong." I don't understand it at all, but I guess when you've lived there all your life and have been told the wrong thing so many times, it's hard to figure out what to pay attention to.

No kidding! I keep saying this...
Why is every single weather event these days the "Most epic" and they are all "Devastating" and of "Biblical Proportions"!
In the Summer the heat is now dangerous. In the Winter the cold can now kill you. All waves are huge and every storm will most definitely have killer surge which will kill millions. God forbid it's windy out... run for cover! I can't stand it any longer! Just have common sense.
If you live in the woods - take down the trees that are a danger to your property during a hurricane.
If you live in the North East and you're getting a Nor 'Easter, get a generator, and gas, have snow tires, find a plow guy.
If you live on the ocean... LEAVE and ride it out somewhere else.
DON'T build your house on stilts on the beach.
DON'T move to "Tornado Alley"
DON'T throw a lit smoke out of your car during dry season... especially not out West!
If you live in California guess what... they have earthquakes and mudslides. DON'T build on a fault line and DON'T build on the side of a slope.
My God... people, get a clue!
I just love it when these folks are on the news the day before saying "Aww hell I've been through storms before, ain't nothing but a thing, I'm riding it out". Yet they're the very first ones on TV the next day crying about how terrible it was and how all of their stuff is gone... washed away.
Also... If you have pets... DON'T LEAVE THEM and if you do leave them like a horrible person would, please don't leave them tied up for crying out loud!
I hate people


Be safe out there if you're in the area.

I seriously think that people that leave pets in cages or tied up during hurricanes should be publicly flogged by all us pet lovers.
