There will always be contenders for the Darwin awards. I saw a video yesterday of someone in key west trying to take a selfie in front of the ocean. He was washed away. He did survive.
I made contact with a HAM in Ft Myers about 3 this morning. The waves were at 31 ft at that point. Yikes! They are expecting the full impact of the storm in that area. I’m farther north in central fl about 30 miles inland. Mandatory evacuations for mobile and modular homes. Going into work it appeared compliance was an issue. In my area we are expecting significant impact. Winds of 110 mph and flooding from a river. I’m far from the river and not expecting flooding. I am expecting a lot of tree damage but I have removed all the ones close to the house over the years. We’ll be on the right side of the storm so hopefully I won’t have to deal with a tornado. My employer thinks we may be able to reopen for business Monday afternoon I’m thinking I’m not going to make it in. There’s no way they will have the roads cleared etc by then. Travel is usually very restricted after these types of events. So long as the house is not damaged (I do not expect issues) I’ll be fine but it sure is not pleasant waiting these storms out.
