As Hurricane Irene makes it way toward North Carolina, where it's expected to make landfall early Saturday morning, video footage of the storm is beginning to surface. The storm weakened to a Category 2 as it reached Florida's waters, the Associated Press reported, but it could pick up steam again. The video below appears to show the first injuries from the storm, as eight people were swept off a jetty near West Palm Beach by giant waves. According to the Palm Beach Post, one of the eight is in a hospital in serious condition. The waves crashed over people in Boynton Beach, Florida, who ventured out to a jetty to watch the storm.
I ask that question all the time. The best response that I have ever gotten was "they can't afford to leave". I had never really thought about that. If you have no one and and no where to go and are living paycheck to paycheck where do you go? You hunker down at "home' imo. I do have to say that I don't really feel sorry for most people that chose to live in the hurricane prone areas. I mean, C'mon. Right? Common sense has to kick in at some point. That's how I look at it
