Evacuate or die?

via MarketWatch.
Puerto Ricans have been warned to evacuate or risk their lives as Hurricane Maria barrels toward the U.S. territory, brining life-threatening winds, storm surge and rainfalls.

The weather system is forecast to hit the islands, with a population of 3.5 million people, Wednesday morning as a Category 5 storm. It is expected to wreck more havoc than Hurricane Irma that destroyed large parts of the Caribbean just two weeks ago.

The National Hurricane Center said in its early Wednesday advisory that Maria is heading toward the southeastern part of Puerto Rico at 10 miles per hour, packing sustained winds of as much as 165 miles per hour. It was just 85 miles southeast of San Juan at 2 a.m. Eastern Time.
Story here. 


They're actually telling poor Puerto Ricans that while realizing that many don't have the means to leave?

That's why you prep.

Between the hurricanes (with more to come I'm sure) and the earthquakes in Mexico this is turning into another crazy year.  The teenage years of this century are a real bitch.
