Irma has become a second threat of monster proportions.

Dallas, Texas
September 6, 2017 9:22am CST
Florida, a place most people who retire in America go to live in the lap of comfort and luxury the last years of life and many Cubans came to make their second home. I wonder not only where the residents of Florida will have to move to to relocate when it turns out their homes are permanent ponds? And the wildlife. Insects, birds and other wildlife will probably have to get out of town as well. I wonder how this Irma will affect the population of several types of insects and other species that favor the climate in Florida? It was fine until monster storm Irma decided to pay Floridians a visit ... Get ready. It's going to be a bumpy ride!
Hurricane Irma is days away from possibly touching American shores, but has strengthened to an extremely dangerous Category 5 storm, information...

I hope they can all get out in time, but there are always a stubborn few who refuse to leave. I'm am perfectly happy not living anywhere near an ocean.

I think that many people are afraid that if they leave their homes, their personal belongings might be lost and some people value their possessions more than their own personal safety. The worst thing is the forecasters can't seem to pin point exactly where Irma will make landfall. That is why so many people are just waiting around until the last possible moment. Then it will be too late to evacuate.

@fishtiger58 , yea, but if only those people living in the areas hardest hit by the storm could realize that their lives are much more important than their stupid possessions. You can replace that stuff, but not your own lives. I pray that they will all find safe cover from the storm.

I am going to be praying more than normal. It can't hurt. Meanwhile I have the t.v. off today. I just can't bear the bad news.

@lookatdesktop It shifted a little more west so I do think God was listening :-)

It must be awful hard on the Floridians that have to evacuate their homes, especially if they don't have much family to rely on. My husband and I were just talking this evening about where we would evacuate to if we lived on the Florida coast or the Georgia coast. Fortunately, we've got family up in the North Georgia mountains who would gladly take us in, but I really feel for the evacuees who aren't so lucky and have to fend for themselves (for the most part) at such a scary and vulnerable time!

Depends on what you live in and if you have shutters or not. Luckily my father in law has a very sturdy house with shutters, so we won't be evacuating and going there instead.

Try to take a look at the following link:
National Weather Service says as of right now it's possible but not likely.

I am pleased I live in a Chicago suburb. An occasional blizzard is not problem since all are prepared for a blizzard that lasts only 1 day. I hate heat so I suppose I am in the right spot.

Chicago, I have been in that rather large Greyhound bus station. Back in the 70's when I was going on a trip to see my sister. It was huge. You are in a much cooler area than here in Dallas for sure.

@lookatdesktop Yes, winters can be cold, and some pretty mild. When we go to FL to visit my husband's family, I am miserable. Told him I will only go down there if someone passes away.

I will pray along with you. We all need to be very focused on this storm. It is not your ordinary run of the mill type.

Hey there. I think I will be safe here in Dallas, TX. How are things going in one of my favorite places where my ancestors once lived? I have German in my bloodline. It is a funtabulous place. How is the weather there?
