People tend to not take warnings seriously, especially when it comes to the weather.
We distrust the media. We distrust weathermen.
For example, I grew up in a town that literally flooded every single year, yet every single year people still thought it wouldn't happen.
Our evacuation shelter was located at my high school... which also flooded.
We lost our bus garage. Kids were kayaking to class.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew is no exception to this. Even American hero, Vanilla Ice, is staying behind and attempting to live tweet the experience despite numerous warnings to evacuate.
Just look at the destruction it has already caused...
Or, stick around and kite surf, by all means. Sure. Ignore our pleas.
Please, please do not do this. Please go seek shelter.
Hurricane Matthew is projected to hit the east coast of Florida through Friday evening. Hopefully most of the residents have prepared for the powerful storm.
But, of course, this kite surfer in Fort Lauderdale basically just laughed in the hurricane's face.
Why you gotta try fate like this, man?
OK, I won't lie. It is crazy impressive that this dude managed to catch so much air.
But am I the only one who expects him to just keep on flying?
Straight passed the second star to the right, and straight on till morning.
What is it about humans that causes them to just love laughing in the face of mother nature?
While Governor Rick Scott was telling 1.5 million Floridians to GTFO, a bunch of them just went to the beach to take selfies and ride bikes.
DO NOT DO THIS. DO NOT DO THIS.
Fox News LITERALLY said, "You will die," and also, "Your kids will die."
Stop having fun! Save your lives.
