FOLLOW THIS PLEASE!
Prayers are being given for anyone being hit by Irma!
This is a studio for those of you in Florida ( FL ), Georgia ( GA ), the Carolinas ( NC, SC ), and all others.
All 67 counties have been requested to evacuate.
I request that if you cannot evacuate that you find a storm shelter.
Please keep in mind that the roads will be busy.
According to the weather channel, we will be hit around Sunday. It will be hitting the Carolinas on Monday.
Please keep in mind that Irma traffic is flowing into GA's 1-75. There is even more traffic.
UPDATE: 30 counties being evacuated ( i think )
~~~WARNINGS FOR THE CAROLINAS:
The Weather Channel says you will be hit by Monday. Please be ready. Please be prepared.
~~~ALL OTHERS THAT WILL BE HIT:
Please take the safety precautions that will be listed below.
~~~ALL OTHERS THAT WILL NOT BE HIT:
Pray for us!
Use 1-2 cars.
Take as many belongings as possible with you.
Do not take any long ways to the spot you are evacuating to, unless where you are evacuating to is not far.
Do not expect traffic to be spotless. It is cramped in FL at the moment.
Rescue your pets, don't leave them at home.
Bring the following in the car;
Make sure you have a channel on the radio that talks about Irma 24/4 on the radio.
I reccomend the Weather Channel.
THOSE OF YOU STAYING PUT:
Not a smart idea, unless you have Storm Shutters.
Make sure you have food, water, etc.
Do NOT open any doors or windows, not even a nanometer.
Do NOT try to drink the water outside. It could have dangerous chemicals.
Make sure there are phones in the house.
After the storm, wait to be rescued.
THOSE OF YOU STAYING PUT, BUT IN A BIG BUILDING:
This is a slightly smarter idea.
Make sure there are more than 10 people in the building.
If you are alone, contact someone.
If too late, go on the roof, or, if not possible, the highest floor possible.
If in a group, get everyone on the highest floor possible or the roof.
Make sure you have food, water and clothing.
Evacuate everyone in the building.
Try not to be negative! ( This goes for everyone, not just you. )
Don't try to race the water. That's just stupid.
If more than one person is up there, huddle together for warmth.
Make sure you have blankets.
If blankets are available, wrap yourself and/or others around you in the blanket.
Babies need to be saved as well.
If pets are inside, bring them outside and keep them from jumping off at all costs. Just make sure not to hurt them. That's animal abuse in a small way.
WHEN BEING RESCUED:
Do not just automatically jump into the boat.
Do not swim to the boat unless whoever is saving you says that it is safe.
If on a rooftop, wait until they have one of those big blow-up pillow thingies blown up 100% and they give you the thumbs up before you jump.
Do not toss down babies on their own.
Allow pets to be rescued.
Do not push.
