    A lot of roads to the beach are being blocked because some intercoastal streets are under water. I know there were probably surfers out, though.

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Some funny stuff comes up on "Nextdoor".

    Here's an example from today:

    Movie Theatre:
    We just went to go to the movies ( nsb) and it’s closed. Frustrating that online it doesn’t say anything. Lots of people doing the same thing as us. Hoping I saved some of you from wasting your time.

    1st reply:
    Was just thinking about going this afternoon. Thanks for the tip.

    2nd reply:
    Their phone works.

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Mandatory evacuation update from the PIO of the NSB Police Dept.:

    Volusia County officials have clarified the mandatory evacuation order.

    The order, which was effective at 10 a.m. today, applies to:
    · Residents who live on the beachside
    · Residents who live in low-lying areas, RVs and mobile homes east of I-95.

    Persons who live in areas not included in the mandatory evacuation order should pay close attention to the weather forecasts and evacuate voluntarily if needed.

    The emergency curfew for cities and unincorporated areas east of the Halifax River has been extended. The new hours are from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday, and from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday. The restriction does not apply to authorized public safety personnel.
    ========

    What they don't tell you is evacuation is NOT mandatory.

    I'll never understand why they call it "mandatory" - if it isn't mandatory.

    I guess to make it sound more intimidating. But everybody knows it's a "mandatory suggestion" so, I don't think it's working!

    These two are real rocket scientists.........


    Stealing sand bags: Men accused of looting during an emergency


    Governments and agencies across Florida have been giving away sand bags to their residents in anticipation of flooding because of Hurricane Dorian, but two men near Daytona Beach are accused of looting a construction site to obtain them.



    The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy spotted the men about 5 p.m. Monday along a road that’s off Interstate 95 and I-4. One man was loading the bags into a pickup as the other man acted as a lookout, the sheriff’s office said.


    Thaylon A. Lewis, 43, and Joseph Colombo Jr., 45, “are the first to be arrested for looting during a state of emergency,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook posting.

    It's a liability thing. If it's mandatory, they're telling you that they probably won't be able to come get you in an emergency and, if they don't, then there's no liability. It's sort of like driving around a "road closed" sign...

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Went to bed around midnight and slept like a baby. Very windy out and rainy too but power and Internet still working.

    The eye is directly across from us right now! So surreal to have a beast like that so close.

    Hope everyone else is doing OK.
