Well, looks like the time for Floridians is quickly running up. I'd like opinions of the ATS'ers of when I should evac Florida. (Other Gulf states also would be nice for others in concern)

I most defintiely do NOT want to wait until FEMA announces the plan. Highways will be so clogged up I doubt i'd get even close to halfway out of FL.


You stay in Florida through Hurricane season, swim in waters with Alligators and sharks and have large numbers of invasive Phyons crawling around and you want to leave because of an oil spill?

Check your paranoia at the state line when you leave.

That whole remark was disgusting, obviously you've not been following the story. Clean up crews have been getting sick off of just the fumes, now don't you think that if it'd hit the shores in mass, that even MORE people would get sick?

In fact, here's a breaking story by another ATS'er: abovetopsecret.com... The story goes on to state that "400 people sick".

I'd be getting the hell out of dodge, I'm not the kind of person keen on breathing in toxic fumes.

They should (BP) also be charged with murder but do you think they will be?

When Disney closed it's doors for business then so would I.

How many of these Oil Spills like the one going on now have you lived through?

How about the deadly odorless and colorless Benzine and Methane in the air, how can you tell when thats around?

I'm in Sarasota about 2 hrs. south of you. The Gulf of Mexico is literally in my back yard & I have no plans on leaving (as of now anyway). With that being said, oil washing up & soiling my son's feet is another story. I don't think that anyone will be forced to leave, however my son & I will take an extended vacation if & when that time should come. I hope that helps & good luck to you & your family.

You goofballs would have them evacuate Orlando, Florida...????


I'm gonna make a trip to Florida just for the hell of it... Take my wife and mother-in-law down to Sarasota, go sunbathing out on Siesta Key, my old stomping grounds.

All I need are a couple of mortgage payments in advance. Any takers? Anybody wanna pay my mortgage so I can take off on a Florida vacation?


I swear, if I get down there and there is oil on Siesta Beach, I will EAT that oil ON CAMERA. Serious as a heart attack.

Point being, I don't think Florida is going to take ANY hits from this oil leak, aside from a tiny little patch up there in the panhandle.

If oil is washing up in Orlando, I think you have other things to worry about considering Orlando is 100+ miles from the Gulf. I tell ya, I am going to design breathable tinfoil for the amount of hats that are needed.

Why do you guys make them out of wood anyways? never heard the three little piggys story?

Have you seen the "brick houses" that cover the midwest. They are made of wood with a sliced brick facing. They are as much wood houses as any. They only look like brick. They might as well be plywood.

Well no matter what advice that we here on ATS give at the end of the day it’s your decision and yours alone that counts

You can ask anyone what they would do in your given situation but it’s your decision that counts as that will affect you and your loved ones

Like when I moved back to Wales I asked my dad and friends what they thought or would do and they all said different things well cutting a long story short I moved and don’t regret it and neither do the wife and kids

but again the final decision is gonna be yours and yours alone to make

Obviously you haven't read, or heard that people are getting sick from the fumes and gases...

BTW, it has been mentioned many times before...this is NOT an oil spill... it IS an oil leak... Which means there is still oil, VOCs, and including Methane and H2S which are still leaking and will continue to leak probably for months if not years... Not to mention the corexit which BP has been using to hide most of the leak but which is extremely toxic...

There is a big difference between an oil spill, and an oil leak... In an oil spill there is only a limited amount of oil that is spilled into the water, but with an oil leak, and more so coming from a deep well the well could leak for years and it releases gases like methane, H2S, and VOCs which are hazardous to all life in large quantities.

To the OP, if I were you, and depending on your situation you should at least prepare. Buy a few gas masks, there are some good ones which are not very expensive and will do the job if things get worse which could very well happen.

If you are only renting, and you don't have any land, or family down there, and IF you are able perhaps you should consider leaving as soon as possible.

If you are paying for your house, or other property and you have family there get ready as much as you can.

Buy a few extra cans of food, and make it a habit to store some water, but of course don't leave it outside.

With hurricane season coming there is a real possibility of your water resourses getting contaminated.

I have lived in Hialeah/Miami Florida during hurricane season and in there I have gone through some hurricanes. My parents and a lot of my family are in the Miami area and i have sent them some gas masks for everyone because of the oil leak.

When I was living with my parents we would fill up a water barrel inside the house, and slowly use that water if nothing happens. Make sure to move the water once in a while so you get some oxygen into the water.

Some people pour some bleach into the water, and I think it is about a drop of bleach for every gallon of water? You should check online for this info.

My parents don't want to leave because they don't want to lose their house, and although they speak some English, it is not good enough for the area where I live.

At the end, and as some other members have mentioned, it is YOUR decision, and YOU alone alongside with your immediate family, if you have any, should determine what to do.

I live in North East FL - east coast. I am not planning to evacuate at all.

I always have a plan to evacuate in the event of a Cat 3+ hurricane. That is common sense down here.

When I moved here I bought a well built brick home located far enough inland to be out of the flooding danger zones for hurricanes.

Get your Plan B in order (alternate residence with relatives/friends outside the Gulf region). Get on the road when you feel inside you can't take the stress much longer, preserve your choices .. "book" while you can - think of Noah. I don't think I am being disloyal to the US bygiving this opinion....this situation is real messy(pun intended).

A brick house won't protect you from methane-benzene-hydrocarbon asphyxiation and just plain collapse from toxic fumes.

If someone from GOM sends you tarballs in the mail can you eat it anyway? I would like very much seeing this.


Good morning my little BPrs (goms)

Has Obama and Rahm Emanuel killed you guys yet?

I don't think some doomsday event is likely, but that's just my opinion. However, I think this spill is going to impact the quality of life in some way or another for several years in that region. For that reason, I would move! 16 did you say? Plan to go to college some place away from the gulf!

If Florida,Mexico,Texas,New Orleans etc, is evacuated there are going to be xyz,000,s of people moving away, where are they gonna go? anywhere and everywhere, so fill up places quickly,which means it will be even MORE searching to find a safe place to be. i would say, make plans NOW and impliment them as soon as YOU feel,YOU need to go at short notice..

If evacuation occurs there will be no more choice in the matter. Evacuation will be under tightly controlled military assistance (supervision). Evacuated populations will most likely be vectored to camps for identifications, emergency treatment, child health care, etc. If you are caught straggling and are swept up into the controlled evacuation, you can probably expect to be "friendly detained" for at least 30 days or more unless you can prove you have a receptive alternate residence (second home/relative/acknowledging friend) to go to.

True. If that was the case at my location I would do the same as I would for a train wreck where one of the cars was breached that carried a toxic chemical. I would follow the plan I have for evac in case of a hurricane.

I am sorry to inform you, but we do not live in a bubble where these gases can take over our healthy air. We in Florida share the same air as you, Asia, Europe and South America. The concentrations will not be 1/1,000,000,00 as they are in the immediate area. Get yourself checked and I mean that sincerely.

Well from what I know, orlando is a little bit distant from the shore enough to decide when evacuation is necessary. However one has to put two and two together. Obama is trying to get an internet killswitch to prevent private communication. And msm will probably urge you to procede with FEMA orders. (Remember forum we must think worst case scenario) but do not leave your family because you are probably still young and your family is basically what's keeping you alive. In my opinion this is my homemade survival kit for oil disasters, and rioters, and gov'ment interventions, oh and for unprepared family members:

Gas masks for each family member
Gloves and water socks
First aid kits
Plenty of disposable cloths,towels etc to cover doors
Walkie talkies
Supplement pills
Water
Water filters
And escape routes (google earth) and fine every single alternative escape route (tip: don't limit yourself to roads, imagining if you can escape w. Your family driving through land is probably not a bad idea since every homeowner are probably tryingto evacuate during the offset of a disaster) and here's another advice.. find a group of ppl u can consider as shelter zones from each state incase u have to go state hopping) but remember timingis everything, if u guys lose your homes because of a hunch, you'll be in worst situation.
