      Ty from S. Ft. Myers. The memories of the wind will forever be etched in my mind as the storm slowly came ashore not far from where I normally live. Both houses came through fine. I normally live 15 min from Ft. Myers beach. We evacuated here further inland. There is water everywhere. Ppl have lakes as yards. I still have yet to hear from my mother which is why I am online now checking. I am beyond blessed I have wifi at this time. Out of power ( on generator) , no running water, no sewage. But we are safe with a roof over our heads. ❣️

    My husband and I wanted to move to Florida when we retire but I've been against it for this very reason. We were walking on the street in Florida about a year ago and I sea shells at the side of the road. It freaked me out thinking that the shells could only be there because of the water. That's the reason I chose not to go to Florida.

We need my credit fixed and every dollar spent on the car back. Then i want relocation to a quality home and not fcked with again by your local mafia. Then ill be compliant. Maybe next hurricane ill help. Remember god answers prayers. Ill stop praying for natural disasters and diseases once its made right. In my movie idea. Thank the phone reps.

      @E Let me share it to you about his words. In the bible there is only ONE Religion or Church which is the Church of God. 15 Bible verses about Church of God. Sorry to tell you that your church(catholic) is not the true religion. In James 1:27 "PURE RELIGION"
      RELIGION - It's a SINGULAR FORM not plural form. Religion or Church which is not written in the bible is in the book of 2 Corinthians 2:17 "For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.

      @K Duncan I had to chuckle at your comment and the f u! I'm a native floridian 4th generation and know how many hurricanes,tornados,hail storms etc. I have been through dozens upon dozens upon dozens, of hurricanes in my life. Grew up in Hollywood fl and then Orlando and now outside of Tampa. Pretty darn sure it's more than a dozen hurricanes I've been through. Don't listen to someone who says dozens is wrong! What a fool texting that to you! Ignore Sandra's comment to you! What a fool! People just don't realize the truth! Ugh! Direct hits and sometimes the outer bands that cause so much damage and flooding! Power out you lose all your food. It's like starting over! Businesses,homes under water or washed away, not being able to work ,lost their jobs,their homes,their business etc. I think people just don't get the ramifications of what happens. I saw on one post that I could not believe.. fema will help and red cross. Bull! Temporary housing in pods is all that does. None of the funds go to rebuilding for jobs or people or people homeless now. For a fact insurance only covers a small portion. Not what it actually costs. Been there done that! Anyway I liked your comment!!

Found a lot of contradictory statements, utterly ignorant cosmology & creation myths (in Genesis), overly harsh rules in a legal code by a confederation of Bronze Age tribes in what is now Israel & the Palestinian territories, a lot of pointless bloodshed, toleration of slavery (in the Old _and_ New Testaments), contradictory narratives about a 1st-century Jew who wandered, preached & got executed by the Romans for presumed sedition, letters written by a Greek who never met Jesus yet presumed to know everything about him, & chiliastic world-ending predictions that seem like they were written by someone in the middle of a psychotic episode. None of the predictions have come to pass despite people claiming they would for almost two millennia now. So what's your point.

    I'm super glad to see this family got out of there in time it's great to hear her intuition told her to get out of there, however all of this kind of frustrates me when I see the stories of people saying they didn't think it was going to be that bad... on Tuesday I watched several of the weather channels forecast on the European weather model and that European weather model said that the eye was going to hit landfall on the north side of Cape Coral/Fort Myers... and they were spot on. This weather model also predicted 12'+ storm surge from Cape Coral to south of Naples. When you consider that most of that whole area is only a few feet above high tide, anybody with any common sense is going to realize that when the water gets 12 ft Plus your homes and businesses and everything are going to be underwater... so how in the heck can these people say oh I didn't realize it was going to be this bad when I realize it was going to be that bad on the other side of the country.

    My heart completely goes out to this guy and his wife and I genuinely hope they recover well. But just a tip about hurricanes: when they say evacuate, do that. Don't go by "intuition." Listen to the experts. When a big hurricane is heading into the gulf, everyone in or near the cone should be prepped with supplies, gassing up vehicles, ready to batten down the hatches, and prepared to evacuate when the order is given - NOT when intuition kicks in.

    We never prepare for the worse. We left out cats home for Ida, thinking we’d be back in 2 days. But you never think about the power lines snd amount of devastation that really happens. Our cats were fine even though half of the ceiling had fallen in. For those asking why a lot of ppl don’t evacuate, one major reason is pets. There’s not many places you can take them and the whole thing is traumatic.

      I rode out Hurricane Michael for that very reason. I had ten indoor only cats, all rescues, and no place to go with them. Three have seen passed on due to old age but I still live with seven. I just cannot bring myself to abandon these little creatures that have been my only source of companionship and love for many years (precious gift from God that was my wife has been gone for 23+ years). Many people don't give abandoning their pets to their fate a second thought but when these little ones that are more like your children than they are animals, it's just an easy thing to even think about. My thoughts were, and still are, that if I can't take them with me and protect them then I will stay and suffer the same fate that they will be facing.

    I just wonder where people get their storm info. I live in the Panhandle far removed from the carnage. But for a while the media had Ian coming our way. I followed the storm intently checking it several times during the day. When the cone shifted and they had it headed for the Big Bend I knew we were in the clear. Then it shifted to Tampa. When it came off of Cuba it took dead aim for the area it hit. You don't have to rely on intuition.

      The Club of Rome has been saying this since the 70s and paid for researchers to confirm their feeling for them. It is really a rehash of Edgar Cayce psychic prophesy. MegaRich folks seem to be into occult and psychic stuff, then say it is The Science.
      1906, 1926, 1930s all had 30 ft storm surge storms...however most cities were 30 miles inland on bays...but even they were flooded. The last decades of the 20th century were relatively mild with 8 foot storm surges but high winds. Only one Camille and most others were Cat3 with mild flooding.
      Remember these new cities are built on barrier islands and land spits of sand. These areas were washed over for centuries, but in the 80s everything boomed following some destruction of the old 50s cottages and tiki bars. New high rises, posh restaurants and million dollar homes popped up from Tampa to Mississippi.
