When I lived in SF Bay Area, it was earthquakes. When I lived near Boston, super-blizzards. In Florida, it's the occasional hurricane.

As Hurricane Matthew Nears U.S., Residents Get Warning: Prepare
• Hurricane Matthew, a deadly storm with maximum sustained winds of more than 115 miles an hour, was forecast to start inflicting significant rain and wind damage in southern Florida beginning late Thursday, before working its way up the coast.
• The governors of Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina declared emergencies, and more than 7,800 National Guard soldiers were activated or placed on alert.
• In Haiti, the storm was blamed for the deaths of five people and widespread destruction, leading the country to postpone elections.
Be ready to flee, Obama says
President Obama urged people in coastal states to prepare.
“We anticipate that not only is there still a chance that the core of the storm strikes Florida and some of the states further north, but even if you don’t get the full force of the hurricane, we are still going to be seeing tropical force winds, the potential for a storm surge,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday morning at the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. “And all of that could have a devastating effect.”
The president, who postponed a Wednesday visit to Florida as Matthew’s path became clearer, said residents should be ready to flee with little warning.
“Now is the time for you to prepare in the event that you have to evacuate,” Mr. Obama said. Even if residents are not ordered to leave, he said, “ it still makes sense for you to figure out what kind of plan do you have, what kind of preparations and supplies do you have.”
South Carolina: Evacuation order for Charleston
Governor Nikki R. Haley urged people to evacuate Charleston, the state’s second-largest city, as the hurricane threatened millions of people along the East Coast. She said that the evacuation of Charleston and part of its surrounding area would begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday, and that the authorities would reverse eastbound lanes on Interstate 26. Other areas of the South Carolina coast will be evacuated on Thursday morning, the governor said.
“For those of you that are wondering whether you should leave or not, I again will tell you that if you do not leave, you are putting a law enforcement officer or a National Guardsman’s life on the line when they have to go back and get you,” Ms. Haley said, She estimated that the evacuation would affect about 250,000 residents and countless tourists.
Florida: Hurricane watch along Atlantic Coast
In Florida, a hurricane warning was in effect between northern Miami-Dade County and Sebastian, which is in Indian River County. The authorities issued a hurricane watch from the Sebastian Inlet, north of Port St. Lucie, to Fernandina Beach, near the border with Georgia. Miami-Dade County schools canceled classes on Thursday and Friday.
The looming evacuations were poised to cause widespread disruptions, even as overnight forecasts suggested that the storm was veering slightly eastward, somewhat reducing the threat to land. But Florida remained in particular danger; the Hurricane Center said the storm could churn near the state’s east coast as at least a Category 3 hurricane.
“Regardless of if there’s a direct hit or not, the impacts will be devastating,” Gov. Rick Scott of Florida said Wednesday morning. “I cannot emphasize enough that everyone in our state must prepare now for a direct hit.”
The governor, echoing emergency officials elsewhere in the South, warned that the storm could be “catastrophic.” The authorities were worried about extended power failures, widespread flooding and, in Florida, a potential lack of preparation by residents along the heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor. The authorities in Brevard County directed people in some low-lying areas to flee.
North Carolina: Tourist destinations affected
In North Carolina, officials ordered the evacuation of Ocracoke Island, a popular destination for tourists in the Outer Banks.
Haiti: 5 fatalities confirmed
Initial reports from the government of Haiti said that five people there had been killed, 10 people had been injured and one person was missing.
The storm pummeled the southern coast on Tuesday, destroying homes and crops, sweeping away livestock and cutting off transportation as a large part of the Caribbean was pummeled by 145-mile-per-hour winds and torrential rain.
The top United Nations official in Haiti, Mourad Wahba, described the storm as “the largest humanitarian event” in the country of 11 million since a devastating earthquake six years ago, with thousands scrambling for shelter.
Haiti’s civil protection agency said a bridge collapse had severed the main highway connecting the south with Port-au-Prince, the capital. Interior Minister François Anick Joseph said Tuesday night that 14,530 people had been evacuated and that about 2,200 homes were flooded or destroyed.
As of Wednesday morning, the storm, which was downgraded to Category 3, from Category 4, had passed through Cuba, and the National Hurricane Center in Miami warned that a dangerous surge was beginning to spread over the Bahamas, to the north.

Florida warned of 'direct hit'
Damage could be "catastrophic", the state governor said. Evacuation orders have been issued along the coast.
Matthew, with winds of 125mph (205km/h), is expected to strengthen and hit Florida as a Category Four storm, US officials say.
It has swept across the Caribbean, with the worst of the damage in Haiti.
At least 22 people have been killed in Haiti and thousands displaced. The storm has forced the presidential election there to be postponed.
Four people were also killed in the neighbouring Dominican Republic.
As of 09:00 GMT, the storm was strengthening over north-western Bahamas. All air and sea traffic has been halted and people urged to move to higher ground because of storm surges.
Hurricane Matthew was expected to pass near Grand Bahama Island and "move very close" to the east coast of the Florida peninsula on Thursday night, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
"Everyone in our state must prepare now for a direct hit," Florida Governor Rick Scott told a news conference.
"If Matthew directly impacts Florida, the destruction could be catastrophic and you need to be prepared."
Some two million people have been advised to evacuate across coastal areas of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. North Carolina could also be affected as the storm moves north.
"If there is an evacuation order in your community, you need to take it seriously," US President Barack Obama said.
In many areas cars queued for fuel and residents stocked up on food and hardware supplies to board up their houses, local reports said.
Schools, universities and government offices in some areas are closed. Flights are disrupted, with American Airlines cancelling all flights in and out of three South Florida airports.
In South Carolina, lanes on some highways have been reversed so vehicles can head west away from the storm.

Eu usava a Atlantic.net em Orlando na época do Charley, em 2004. A conversa manjada de bilhões de litros de diesel armazenados, contratos de fornecimento prioritário de combustivel, equipes de plantão, pode não resistir à fúria da natureza. O data center operou por dias usando o gerador e não sofreu downtime mas a cidade virou um caos com casas destruidas, árvores caidas nas ruas, inundações, falta de energia, aeroportos fechados, e ... toque de recolher (curfew) -- proibição de circulação de pedestres e veiculos nas ruas exceto viaturas policiais, bombeiros, ambulâncias, reparos da rede elétrica -- prestadores de serviços e a equipe do data center ficaram impedidas de trabalhar (e um técnico teve a casa destruida). Por sorte, a energia elétrica foi restabelecida quando a reserva de diesel alegadamente estava quase esgotada.

Nessas horas até que não é tão ruim ter um servidor na OVH, ao invés em algum DC na FL.
