NOT what Florida needed right now... Hurricane Frances

We are struggling to get our lives back to normal here in the Southwest part of the state from Hurricane Charley, and now Frances is bearing down on the East coast...a strong category 4 storm. There's so many people without roofs in this area that will not be able to stay home to ride the storm out here. There is debris on the sides of the roads everywhere that still hasn't been picked up....waiting to become flying debris. The mental state of Floridians is being tested for sure. The only thing I am assured is that I won't lose my job this time(because I already did!)......The Sunshine State...hah!

Anyone on the East Coast and central parts of Florida...good luck, my heart goes out to you....

As a resident of the Hurricane Magnet of the East Coast (formerly known as Wilmington, NC - The Cape Fear Region), I can speak with absolute empathy and tell you my heart goes out to Florida.


The truth of the matter, though, is that NOBODY needs that b*tch Frances knocking on (down) their door! Let's all pray she self-destructs and turns back east into the ocean!!

(Batten down those hatches, just to be safe, though!!!)

I was just there in Florida for 10 days. I was in Key West when Hurricane Charly hit, but it didnt hit Key West to bad. But we drove up to Orlando and some parts of Orlando had gotten hit pretty bad. Its crazy that another hurricane is going to hit, I wish all floridans good luck, and try to be safe.

We got a Category 2 up here in Nova Scotia last year (Juan), and that was enough for me.

I can't even imagine what a 4 or 5 must be like.

Best of luck and Godspeed to everyone down south.

And if the Feds issue an evacuation order...

FOR GOD'S SAKE GET OUT OF THERE! For your own good!

I'm in Tampa and am really worried about Frances coming to dinner here as she cuts across the state. Since Charley spared us, I'm so scared she's gonna hit us.

I feel like hurricanes have me on their shit list.

Charley came straight for me where I live now (Tampa); and now Frances is going straight for where I grew up (West Palm Beach).



Either way, I don't see how Tampa Bay will escape at least a Cat 2 as Frances comes across the state.

Yeah we went through Hurricane Isabel It wasn't very pretty...I live 3 blocks from the Chesapeake Bay and all the houses by the bay were basically destroyed or about under 5 feet of water. We were spared the damage but didn't have electricity for 2 weeks

To every one in Florida.

If it does hit, I hope everyone makes it through okay.

Isabel came up here last year (I never thought a hurrincane could hit so far north) and I was terrified. I can't imagine what it must be like facing the threat of a catagory 4.

I know, this is getting really old really fast I feel so sorry for everyone that went through Charley, this is sure to affect them too and they're already in a bad situation

I'm sorry you lost your job Nate Dogg

I have a friend who is a teacher in the Orlando area, and after Charely the schools were closed for a week. It's weird, because Orlando is right in the middle of the state, nowhere near the coast, and it looks like they're going to get a double dose again too

Stay safe, Floridians and everyone else who is affected by this storm. It looks like a biggie.

My parents live one block away from an evaculated area in Pompano Beach, so they took the hint and fled to my aunt's house in Tamarac, which is further from the water. I hope they'll be okay.

To paraphrase Sgt Hulka from Stripes: "lighten up Frances"
