    Living in south Florida, and having been through Andrew, Katrina, and others...You bet I am....It's very scary, the damage and destruction is unbelievable.

    The hurricane really isn't visible as an image, except on radar.

    Then why didn't they use a satellite image?

    Last year's hurricane season was supposed to be above average. So was the year before. We haven't had a good hurricane in the Gulf since Ike in 2007.

    I'm a couple of hundred miles inland. Hurricanes dissipate heat, and it has been a warm summer. Hang on for some big storms.

    nope, with today's technology, we have plenty of warning and time to escape if need be.

    I don't live near the coast, but even if I did, there's not much to do but be prepared for one. They have caused flooding in my area after moving ashore and creating the heavy rains though, which was terrible, but what can you do.

    I'm too far inland for much of anything to really do much damage to us. Tornadoes have hit towns around me, but so far so good.

    The so-called experts have predicted a nastier than normal hurricane season for the last 4 or 5 years and the seasons have been a complete bust. What makes you so sure their suddenly going to be accurate now?

    No, but a bit concerned about tornadoes, which is what is pictured. I don't live near the coast, but I do live in tornado alley.

    This prediction means NOTHING. It's just data issued by another ineffectual gub'ment bureaucracy to justify their paychecks.
    About 6 or 8 years ago, they predicted an average season and we had more named storms than the Alphabet has letters. The following year NOAA missed just as bad the other direction.

    You should be far more worried about Greece, France, Italy etc. You can have more effect on the outcome and none on the weather.

    I live in Florida...and that isn't a pic of a hurricane. But then, you probably knew that! If you've experienced a hurricane first-hand, you'd know what freaking beasts they are. And they creep along at 5 mph so they have lots of time to do lots of damage.

    Why worry?

    Either you're going to be hit, or you're not. If you're hit, hopefully you're prepared. But that isn't reason to worry. You really can't help what's going to happen. Worrying just adds to the problem.

    Washington generally doesn't get many tornadoes or hurricanes.
    But good luck if your area does!

    I live in Southwest florida, it gets scary when you hear" evacuate" . My first hurricane was Wilma in 2005, the build up of the hurricane is what got to me. I opened up the front door when the worst part was coming over our home it was a big adrenaline rush. The bad part is no gas stations opened, everything is closed and people running around like crazy.
