    Hurricane Irma

    Wow, I can't believe another huge hurricane is about the hit the US again, so soon after Harvey. This one might even be worse than Harvey!

    I know it's a week or more out but what are our Floridian STers going to do... hunker down or evacuate?

    Too much white... I'm working on it!

    Florida native here, too many variables this far out to do anything but make sure the hurricane kit is ready.

    We are in south Florida. We are preparing all our emergency stuff, survival stuff etc. The motorcycle camping gear is going to come in very handy.
    If need be, we plan on driving north out of Florida.

    Re: Hurricane Irma

    My sister and brother-in-law live in Boynton Beach, near West Palm Beach. I just spoke to her this morning and they are preparing the hurricane kit as well; flashlights, batteries, water, food, etc. My brother-in-law is busy getting everything he needs to install the shutters and has ordered a small generator, which my sister doesn't think will arrive in time. As Dave said before, the exact path of the storm isn't known at this time, so they don't know if there will be an evacuation order - needless to say, they hope not. If so, they'll go to my niece in North Carolina.

    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Everyone please stay safe!

    Re: Hurricane Irma

    Having seen what a category 4 did to low lying Houston, I'd be heading north now to get out of the way of this category 5 and the huge danger of extreme flooding in equally low lying Florida.

    Re: Hurricane Irma

    I lived in Melbourne, FL when Erin hit in '95. It was a Category 1 and it still scared the hell out of me, mainly because of the water. If I were still there, and facing a 4 or 5, I would be headed north to TN pronto, where all we have to deal with is tornadoes.

    I pity those who get stuck in what is going to be tremendous traffic on 95, 75, 10 , 4 and the Turnpike, etc. when/if that bad boy shows up. There is no place to go.

    That's a very good point, but it's our only way out
