Florida governor declares state of emergency fearing that a tropical storm will become a major hurricane
state of emergency? hope everybody has a mask!!!


Florida is preparing for the possibility of a major hurricane as Tropical Storm Ian edges closer to the state, causing Gov. Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency for 24 counties.

Tropical Storm Ian developed early on Friday. Official forecasts expect it to turn into a Category 3 hurricane by next Wednesday, which could mean Floridians will be slammed by winds up to 130 mph.

The track of the Tropical Storm is very similar to that of Hurricane Charley, which ravaged Florida in 2004, killing 15 people and causing more than $16 billion in damage.

The Florida Keys and southern parts of the state are most likely to be in the crosshairs, though it is too early to tell where and when the storm will make landfall.

'This storm has the potential to strengthen into a major hurricane and we encourage all Floridians to make their preparations,' DeSantis said in his emergency declaration announcement.

He also said it 'will make available important resources and support, as well as free up funding sources for emergency protective measure,' along with activating the Florida National Guard.

'We are coordinating with all state and local government partners to track potential impacts of this storm,' the governor added.

The statement also warned Floridians 'to begin preparing and ensuring their family emergency supply kit is ready and stocked with food, water, and medicine.'

It also said the possible hurricane has 'the potential for dangerous storm surge, heavy rainfall, strong winds, flash flooding, and the potential for isolated tornadic activity.'

Re: Florida governor declares state of emergency fearing that a tropical storm will become a major hurricane
Been through 10 Hurricanes. Started in 92. I was about 8 and my Dad was stationed at Homestead AFB. The eye of Andrew went right over home. We saw gusts of 220-230mph.

I remember seeing my roof rip off and hearing our windows shatter. The sound is what is the worst.

After that experience I was both mesmerized and terrified by hurricanes. Fast forward 30 years and 9 more hurricanes and now if its a cat 1 or 2 and maybe a low 3, I'm good.

But if its a cat 4 and obviously a 5, I get a little nervous and remember Aug of 1992.

I live in Sebring which is about 90 miles from Tampa in the middle of the state.

Last night I went to Publix and about all the water was gone. This storm has already freaked out the locals and it is several days away.

Keep in mind that multiple countries have the ability to create, steer, and deciminate these hurricanes. No telling what is going on here.

Also, Florida has many many residents who are new and never been in a hurricane. The last major hurricanes were way back in 05.

Luckily, he has brought some immigrants to safety.

He puts the immigrants first. Liberals should like him.
