Don't get me wrong. I fell bad about the people in Haiti and Cuba. But when is going to hit me in south Florida? The wait is killing me. I just want it to get over with now.

I think and so I been told, that when people die, they cannot take anything with them.

There is the old saying 'better safe than sorry'.

Unfortunately there are always those that don't heed the warnings, don't evacuate,
drive through water, etc. The really bad part is the people that place their lives on
the line trying to save those very people that do not heed the warnings.

So IF you are in an area that is to be evacuated, think of others and get out, even
if you don't think of yourself.

Stay safe.

I lived at 'Ormond by the Sea' at Ormond Beach that is just down the beach at Daytona beach....for a
year. I lived less than a block off A1A across from the beach and that is just a few miles down from
Flagler beach. At the time I lived there, there was a time when a few were boarding up their windows
due to a storm BUT most felt nothing would happen seriously. Well, nothing serious did happen but I
tell you this.....that was a simple mild storm.....and I had a large picture window in my living room and
could see across to the beach and ocean. It was very frightening. The waves came up to the highway
on A1A and I could see those waves rising and coming in from the ocean. Most of that storm took place
at night. The next day, many of us were leaving our houses and the condo's there and walking across
to the beach but the beach was mostly gone. It was a few days before the water went down enough
to actually walk on the beach again. The storm had spit all kinds of junk out from the ocean....mostly
what I called sea weed.

I considered getting the heck out of there at that time.....and I think it was a category 0. :lol:

We lived in Key West when Hurricane Betsy hit. We were safe in a shelter where I could watch what was happening out a window from a tall building I was in. When we were allowed to go home thank goodness my brother was put to work getting tape off the windows and picking up alot of dead fish from the lawn!

I just heard that a woman there at Daytona went outside to feed her animals in the height of the storm...
and a tree fell on her. Killed her.

Looks like 800 people dead in Haiti.

It appears St Augustine was hit the hardest in Florida. All I could think about was the alligator farm there. YIKES!

I have family in Volusia County..I've been glued to the tv all day and stressed. At one point the eye was just 5 miles from Daytona Beach, so glad it didn't make landfall.

Hurricane Matthew's trail of destruction in Haiti has stunned those viewing the aftermath, with the number of dead soaring to 842, tens of thousands made homeless and crops destroyed in the impoverished Caribbean nation's breadbasket region.
