Default Prayers for all the family friends, members and workers in Florida

First off sorry if this is posted in the wrong section.

Just thought while I'm sitting in my hotel near Concord N.C. getting ready to head into Florida within the next day or so. That I just want to ask for everyone to keep all the families, members or workers heading into Florida in their prayers. Looks like Key West is really in trouble watching the weather channel right now..

God bless you Flordia, please look out and keep everyone safe.

Rural area between Ocala and Gainesville. Little over an hour south of lake city.

Personally.... I think the media sensationalizies anything to sell advertising. I'd bet this boosted gdp 10 to 20% this quarter in the entire southeast. Remember... Trump had zero chance and Hillary is our next president, trump will be thrown out for collusion? Weather is from same sources, anything to get your attention. The highest recorded sustained wind so far has been 107 not 185? I'm not downplaying the impact the keys will feel but I'm sick of the media coverage, they have overblown this storm so much it's ridiculous!

Yes I pray in the name of JESUS that no matter how big the storm is the people of Florida will keep their heads up high and know that their God is bigger than any problems they can encounter.

Exactly how I feel. I'm about 50 miles in from the gulf coast and we've been told to prepare for 100mph sustained winds, higher gusts. I'll be shocked if we see 50 mph sustained. Ocala area has had a gas issue since Monday. Almost a week of frenzy.

It's actually blowing 63 mph in key west right now sustained... Not 155... I just checked the weather bouys. Overblown media bullshit is what this is, weather bouys don't lie to sell products...

Remember, weather is a money maker, I'd bet the biggest advertisers for WC are Home Depot, Walmart, etc...

They evacuated Miami for 45 mph winds...

I don't think is the news as much as the weathermen. They missed the mark with Harvey and don't want to do that again. So the news and government fallow suit. However projecting these storms is very complex and this storm has caused significant damage where it has made landfall.

I do agree dume and gloom is a money make for the news and fine it disgusting. Like the story line from Harvey about all races and ethnicities coming together for help. The only thing more disgusting then someone not helping someone because of their race. Is the media putting the story out there that made it sound like there was a chance that would widely be happening.

What sucks is I was supposed to close on the house I'm selling last week. But the financing fell through. Now I have 2 places to worry about. That one is a .5 acre lot with 12 100yr oaks on it, 5 of which are close enough to demolish the house if one were to fall. This has also been one of the wettest summer's we've had in a few years too. So saturated ground with another 10-15" rain, big oaks and even a little wind are not a good combo for that place. Anyone know if a house can be "totalled" like a vehicle?

Friend at the emergency response center got a call in for mortuary team to be dispatched to the keys...
High probability that anyone who stayed is no more
As for the media yes they are definitely over exaggerating the situation which makes us who are prepared almost calloused to the storm but ultimately it's in God's hands
Prepare for the worst!
Pray for the best!
As for me I'm having a party with all our friends who are seeking shelter with us. Gator frog legs and ribs lol
