I read online that Mar-A-Lago is probably one of the safest buildings in Florida when it comes to withstanding a hurricane, so I'm certain Trump has ordered immediate preparations to open it up as a shelter. That should help some of them.

Somebody went through his entire life named "Brock Long"?

If that was the name of some land developer who wanted to pave over the local youth center to build luxury condos in a Bad News Bears movie, it'd sound a little too on the nose.

Which one.  Local law enforcement said there were around 700 people who decided to stay and ride it out.

I mean I'm going to feel bad for them but JFC what Is wrong with you that you can't listen to reason?

Limbaugh should go to jail for his idiotic ramblings that led people to believe this was over-hyped liberal lies.  I mean I don't know who believed that after watching Houston.

This is all just too terrible to be real.

That's good because of all the homeless billionaires there that need a place to hunker down.

What I loved most about Rush's rant was that somehow the liberals are now in the back pockets of big business, conspiring with Home Depot to gin up this scary scenario so people would hightail it over there to buy lumber.  It's Alex Jones level crazy conspiracy crap, rather than the normal herp-a-derp we usually get from Rush.

Well a percentage of them probably had somewhere to hunker down they at least believe can withstand what Irma is going to throw at the Keys.  And depending on the place in question that might not be an unreasonable belief.

Others probably wanted to evacuate but couldn't for one reason or another.  Hopefully those will be able to find somewhere safe.

But yeah, a percentage of them probably have no idea what they are in for.

Not to wish shiat on anybody,  but it is about time Tampa take a turn.   Let's be fair.

Because I somewhat wizarded this two days ago....clip Cuba, slide slowly west by NW....get a huge boost again and just head straight to Gulf Shores Alabama and the Fla Panhandle.

Very bad news for Tampa.  Every bit of westerly slide helps them and dooms those further N by NW.

No.
The main function of the military is to kill people and break things.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Irma was located by a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft and NWS Doppler radar near latitude 23.3 North, longitude 80.8 West. Radar loops indicate that Irma has temporarily slowed down, but the hurricane has been moving toward the west-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h) since earlier today. A northwest motion is expected to begin tonight with a turn toward the north-northwest on Sunday. On the forecast track, the core of Irma will continue to move near the north coast of Cuba during the next few hours, and should be near the Florida Keys Sunday morning. The hurricane is expected to move along or near the southwest coast of Florida Sunday afternoon.
