    25,000 Linemen Ready for Power Outages in Florida

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...tages-florida/

    HANNAH BLEAU 26 Sep 2022

    Thousands of linemen are ready to restore power in Florida as Hurricane Ian approaches the state’s west coast, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced Monday.

    Florida, which is under a state of emergency, now has 5,000 Florida National Guardsmen activated ahead of Hurricane Ian’s landfall.

    “There may not be direct impacts in all 67 counties, but there may be indirect impacts not just from the storm, but also from people that may be evacuating to other parts of the state,” DeSantis explained.

    “So we want to make sure that our communities have the maximum flexibility that they need to be able to respond to the storm in any way that they need to,” he added.

    Additionally, DeSantis said they now “have more than 25,000 linemen that are stationed ready to go once the all clear is given and they are given the go ahead to go and get the power back on,” as power outages are expected.

    “I think Floridians who are in the path of the storm, if you’re not an evacuation zone and you’re happy with your home, the sturdiness of your home and you’re hunkering down, just be prepared to lose power,” he warned Floridians.

    “And depending on the severity of the storm, power outages can be lengthy. It may not just be one day where you’re out of power. So prepare for that, understand that that’s something that’s a possibility,” he said, assuring that officials will work to get the power back on when the all clear is given after the storm.

    “The manpower is there. The urgency will be there as well. But just prepare yourself that a storm of this magnitude is going to take power out more than likely,” he added.

    These people are dangerously insane.

    I remember after the devastating 2005 hurricane season, the usual suspects at the time, many of whom are still around running their pie holes, were all screaming about how this was "the new normal", massive storms every year would make life along the Gulf and Atlantic shorelines impossible, as storm after storm destroyed everything along the shore.

    "They" predicted TEOTWAWKI.

    What really happened?

    It was ten years before another major hurricane hit the mainland United States.

    Oh. I see. Well, then - it looks like I need to amend my previous statement.

    The Panic began early with this one..

    like it was pent up just waiting for an outlet.

    1#. storms never do as predicted.

    2# it is easily survivable.

    Panic will kill you when the storm won't.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Declared Dead in "Andrew",, Danced in the Eye of "Georges" and "Wilma" and have had my hair Mussed by a few others.

    It is highly amusing to read the Chat on the Southernmost Point Livestream.

    an odd mix of ignorance, Fear and Panic.

    Hey just sayin, I’m just off Siesta Key (Sarasota) on the intercostal in an A flood zone. They sent out evacuation notices. I am staying along with some neighbors. Probably should have bugged out back to Pittsburgh but am here now. Fingers crossed.

    We have been in and out of the cone today. I put up the storm shutters just in case. Looks like it might hit Ft Meyers instead of Tampa as of 8pm.

    Was offshore in Georges, Ike and Ivan.

    Ike kicked my ass...that was touch and go there for about twelve hours.

    The Newz is spun up and out of control...almost unwatchable.

    It must be scary for people in states like Alabama and North Carolina to have a sudden influx of refugees from the states in the hurricane path who haven’t been properly vetted.

    So, FEMA will be checking vaxx cards, then? If you don't have myocarditis, you can't get any benefit from your tax dollars?

    I texted my 82-year-old uncle in Naples to poke some fun at him
    “Got your windows boarded up? Gas tank topped off? Hoarding food?”
    He responded:
    Thought I'd take a swim first

    It sure was for the people that had the entire population of NOLA land on them after Katrina.

    They should have gotten a bunch of armed citizens of their states to man the borders and shoot unvetted refugees trying to get into their states from other states.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    In places like coastal MS, that is exactly what they did.

    I saw it in the Keys ,,in years past..

    Locals were Armed..and if you were not recognized,,you were staring down a barrel.

    NG units for Curfew had no bullets in their guns.. the locals did.

    There was No looting on Big Coppitt Key.
    My Bosses Son ran some off from Big Pine..

    Idiot asked "Who are you?",, Robert said "I'm the man with the gun,, get the hell out of here"
