I live in Florida, this guy has no clue what he's talking about lol.
The mass panic caused by fearmongering media is a huge problem. It shuts down highways, cleans out stores, and gas stations. People hoard and buy up as much shit as they can in a panic.
Once hurricanes make landfall on Florida they almost always weaken significantly, like Irma did. People see a cat 5 hitting the Caribbean a couple days out and freak out because they have no clue that hurricanes are very unpredictable; even half a day out is still a guess.
tl;dr Idiots panicking cause too many problems. Don't panic, always be prepared.
