    Does the govt offer evacuation assistance btw? was always curious. Just to get out of FL I'd have to bike 250 miles lol then if FL is getting hit GA probably is too so I'm still fucked, which is why I always just stay put.

    Jesus. I travel for a living and have a bunch of hotel points. I've been offering these points to a friend in NC for a week. She is fine because she is further west with a friend, but her mom was too stubborn to leave and now they can't get ahold of her. She should be ok since that area just has a lot of power loss and low cell signal, but what's worse is her brother as of midnight was STUCK IN A FUCKING TREE because of flooding because his dumbass lives in grantsboro and didn't leave.

    Edit: Her mom is fine and had only shut off her phone to conserve power, so at least there is some good news. But her brother is thinking of swimming for it and we all know how that would end.

    Do they fine people who refuse to leave during mandatory evacuations who end up needing rescue services as a result? If not, they should.

    That probably wouldn't do much good, neither to encourage them to evacuate nor to make a payment after a rescue.

    Apparently 2 out of 5 of Americans couldn't afford an unexpected $400 expense. This is probably many of these people who don't evacuate, seemingly regardless of forecast severity.

    4 dead so far. 2 from a tree falling on a house, 1 from emergency service unable to reach a woman because of blocked roads, and a guy who plugged a generator in in standing water.

    I'm going to guess that Marines over at Cherry Point are going to be doing some working parties to help out at New Bern once things calm down (literally next town over).
