Based on what we know now, the majority of Florida will have major hurricane impacts with daily storm surge and life-threatening winds. Anywhere in the state, if you are told to evacuate, leave. Get out quickly. I'm a dad, and I'm a grandfather. I love my family. I can't imagine life without them.
Do not put yourself or your family at risk. If you have been ordered to evacuate and are still home, please go to a shelter. Today is the day to do the right thing for your family and get to safety. Today is the day the right thing for your family and every family in the state, to make sure you have a plan and get to safety.
We can expect additional evacuations as this storm continues to come up through the state. I cannot stress this enough. Do not ignore any evacuation orders. All Floridians should be prepared to evacuate.
