It will be NEWS after a hurricane hits and the Federal Government decides they just can't provide assistance to storm ravaged Jacksonville; they almost failed to provide emergency disaster relief for SANDY. How many times in the last 30 years has a Category rated storm just blew by Jacksonville? Too many to count! Super storm SANDY, HUGO, FLOYD and many non-Category rated storms that just came ashore and parked right on top of us for several days. What would our thoughts be if Debby and Beryl came ashore as CAT II storms, they were both close to CAT I and most of our evacuation routes were closed by flooding. What would a 15 to 20 foot storm surge right up the mouth of the St Johns River or Nassau Sound do? I can’t even imagine a Katrina or Andrew. Heed the warnings and prepare (plan) for battle now, if we do get hit hard it will be a long time before normalcy, If we don’t enjoy the summer!
