Despite dire warnings to evacuate, many people along the Florida coast decided to take their chances and “ride it out.” Both Florida Governor Rick Scott and Fox anchor Shepard Smith have been called out for their dire warnings. Smith, in a live television weather report, warned: “you can’t survive it. It’s not possible, unless you’re very, very lucky. And your kids die too”.
Were these warnings over the top? Or is this the extreme you need to go to, to get people’s attention?
