Florida Governor: State Could Be Facing ‘Biggest Evacuation Ever’ With Hurricane Matthew

October 6, 2016

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Hurricane Matthew marched toward Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas and nearly 2 million people along the coast were urged to evacuate their homes Wednesday, a mass exodus ahead of a major storm packing power the U.S. hasn’t seen in more than a decade.

Matthew was a dangerous and life-threatening Category 3 storm with sustained winds of 120 mph as it passed through the Bahamas, and it was expected to be very near Florida’s Atlantic coast by Thursday evening. At least 16 deaths in the Caribbean have been blamed on the storm, with heavy damage reported in Haiti.

The National Hurricane Center said in a statement that life-threatening wind and storm surge could leave parts of northeast Florida and southeast Georgia “uninhabitable for weeks or months.”

The storm was forecast to scrape much of the Florida coast and any slight deviation could mean landfall or it heading farther out to sea. Either way, it was going to be close enough to wreak havoc along the lower part of the East Coast, and many people weren’t taking any chances.

    Every once in awhile, these areas need a cleansing….poor drug dealers are going to loose their stashes and their customers. And the sad part, these people will demand to rebuild once again their homes along the coast…this is stupid, costly and undeserving of tax or insurance dollars. Build huts, with bamboo, not high rising, concrete homes! You want to live on the beach, then, act like a beach bumb, not a pampered, arrogant, entitled elitist!

    Obama tells Florida folks to be aware. He is not dumber than a box.

    I sure hope that wimpy Rick Scott and all those rich beach-living Republicans aren’t going to be depending on Obama’s FEMA for a handout!!! Wouldn’t that be ironic? Can you imagine Mar-y-Lago getting FEMA assistance?!?! Hah!!

          Just want to point out you can’t judge everyone by these scumbags action. Same goes for all races. There are always bad apples in all cultures. The good ones need to band together and help get rid of “rotten apples”.
