Praying for you all. This is terrifying and I’m not even remotely close to this storm. I can’t even imagine.

The news footage that I've seen, coming out of Panama City Fla., looks just awful! I hope no lives are lost due to this storm.

I hope so too. But that would be almost unbelievable. I thought this was another storm that they were blowing out of proportion but I keep hearing from every news source that this is the strongest hurricane to ever hit the mainland. 919mb. Also supposedly the first CAT4 to ever hit the panhandle and the first CAT4 to hit in October. Idk?

Prayers that all lives are safe. The material stuff will hurt, but can be replaced. You and your family cannot. Hope that the cattle will do okay also. The only saving grace is that it is supposed to move fairly quickly.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

And you’re not joking right? If that’s true then I can’t even make myself feel sorry for him. That’s a classic case of weeding out weak genetics. But I do sympathize for his family.


Heard it on the news early this morning. I imagine his buddies were offended when emergency personnel didn't rush right to the scene and start a search.
