Debris from houses destroyed by the wind does not equal houses floating off their foundations, and no amount of money wasted on a drone that you don't seem to be able to operate properly will change that, Submitter.

What is this, Hurricane Crassus?

If you love something set it free, if it floats back...

I don't understand.  Tucker Carlson said that the hurricane is a scam.

There is no way that's a drone unless someone just invented an inertialess system to hold it stead in 100mph+ winds, lol. Pole/exterior building mounted security cam would be my guess, from owning a few sites full of them over the years.

Remember how insurance companies were pulling out of Florida entirely a few months ago? Some people are mighty farked.

You can see deck railings when the camera is zoomed out and at its panning limits, so either a wall mounted camera or some lunatic out on his patio with a camera.

This sort of thing happened in New Orleans after Katrina, and during the Japan tsunami.

It's not unreasonable to believe it happened here.

Learn to swim, houses

Perfect, I've always wanted a house built on an artificial peninsula at sea level with the ocean within a few hundred feet in three directions.

Good thing DeSantis hasn't done anything monstrously uncompassionate, like human trafficking and kidnapping vulnerable populations. He's a real "treat others as you would want to be treated" kind of guy.

It's Florida, I'm guessing it's a lunatic.

I'm sure some scrapyard salvager has beat my thought by 60+ years, but what value comes from a house that is...hmm....more than...100(???) yards from it's foundation. How does insurance claim that non-sense. Can you prove your house is your house? And is reclaimed pre-treated wood worth anything?

Shameful media fakery.  All targeted to make Fearless Leader look bad.
 
2022-09-28 9:41:21 PM  
The 4th largest hurricane ever to hit the US. If you couldn't evacuate I hope you're doing better than expected.
 
2022-09-28 9:42:51 PM  
imagine something like this happening in the olden times. i bet you'd get some pretty cool stories

The sea was angry today, my friends

Ron Desantis voted against aid for hurricane Sandy.

We should aid Florida.
We should also point this out to him whenever he asks for it.

Hurricane straps only work on one of the five elements?

Um, there's an entire house and a large barn/building that floated into frame.

Those are Zone A houses. In places like Pasco, nobody but the very wealthy and very poor live in Zone A for precisely this reason. Zone A is always mandatory evacuation in hurricanes for precisely this reason. Guess who has insurance that will pay them for all their stuff that they stupidly put there even though the water was just inches away, and guess who loses everything from their hovel and has to start all over again?

Cue dipshiat Floridians who bragged about how they are just gonna get drunk and we're walking out on the bay as the storm sucked the water up, now probably have their house and everything they own gone. (Friends moms house is gone)

Now can we actually laugh at them? Trump fought to withhold aid from Puerto Rico. Biden already had a plan in place and desantis still tried to say their scheduled call, Biden still hasn't called yet.  Yea. Cause it's scheduled. Nice politics and way to beg for those blue state dollars
 
2022-09-28 9:56:28 PM  
Well, our building inspectors made us install hurricane straps to the "manufactured home".
In Oregon.
We could use a mandatory fire suppression system instead.
 
2022-09-28 9:58:46 PM  
So I should buy at least two bags of drywall mud, right?

Nice houseboats. They don't seem very seaworthy though.
 
2022-09-28 10:02:26 PM  
I think maybe that's from the same feed I saw earlier where, at the time, the water was only up about 2/3s of the way on cars.

Wow, that sucks.  However, Florida should be able to handle this without federal assistance or relief money.   They're rugged individualists.

You can tell thats supposed to be a street and a parking lot and not where a random house is supposed to be.

Vertical video means it's someone on a high-rise or hotel patio using a mobile phone. And holding it stupid, resulting in excessive panning.

Not to state the obvious but I hope the people in those houses evacuated earlier.

Remember the Katrina refugee relocations?  Well y'all better not expect the welcome mat in Massachusetts.

So political assholes.  Otherwise known as pol tabbers.  People capable of turning any thread into politics.  But I repeat myself.

Where would you rather be right now - Florida or Cape Cod?
Turns out he did them a huge favor. I'm sure he regrets it.

I wonder how trailer parks are doing. They're probably aren't many close to the water.

I wonder how many "government can't tell me what to do" anti-covid vaxxers ignored the evacuation order?
