Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew closes Disney World for first time in 11 years as 140mph storm approaches Florida

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/hurricane-matthew-closes-disney-world-8993167

 

We know !!!

We visited WDW just after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, not too much damage apart from fallen trees everywhere !

http://thedisneyblog.com/2005/08/25/disney_world_an/

 

We often visit for Thanksgiving, meeting up with American Friends & Family, November 24th.

We were intending to visit again this year, will hold off & see what the forecast is nearer the time.

We do have family in Charleston, South Carolina, currently preparing to evacuate.

The Governor says, if you are ready........ get out now !!!

 

Don't wait for an official notification.

 

There are extremely long traffic queues reported on UK News, US News too.

Re: Hurricane Matthew

Supermarket Shelves cleared !!!!

Hurricanes are like Christmas, they happen every year at about the same time.

Yet once again people panic buy items they should have stocked up on Months ago, Water, Non perishable food, Propane Gas etc.....

Long queues for Petrol (Gas) perhaps more understandable, do Drivers really not keep the tanks topped up ?

And America is the home of the B-O-B..... Break Out Bag

 

A bag full of essentials, that you can grab as the apocalypse approaches.

Especially Torches, Radio, Batteries, Biscuits, Water, Money, Phone with battery powered charger, copy of essential documents off computer (ie USB stick)

etc....

Several websites with suggestions. 

 

At home we keep a stock of Bottled water, it's only 17p per 2 litre bottle !!!

 

Use by date at least 12 months hence.

With out of date Bottled & Tap water used for washing, cooking etc

With Matthew's predicted easterly kick in 3-4 days we may be in for some bad weather in 10 days time

Re: Hurricane Matthew

I'm waiting for the Daily Express shock horror report that Matthew is headed for the UK.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Hurricane Matthew

My little sister is in Miami and has been evacuated. Been in contact with her a few times and she and her fellow work colleagues were taken to supermarkets to get as many supplies as they could carry before being taken to a hotel out of the evacuation zone.

Re: Hurricane Matthew

Well if that happens, expect the Guardian to blame it on Brexit.

All views expressed are my own but you can express them too if you want to be right about everything like I am.

Hurricane makes landfall in South Carolina after dumping more than 10 inches of rain on Charleston, killing at least 12 and causing $6BILLION in damage

Matthew has arrived, with a vengeance.

Our relatives are OK, they have moved out whilst Matthews is flooding the area, received a text message earlier.

It is sad to see the photographs, such a nice town, and surrounding area
