Do You Think The Media Over Hyped Hurricane Matthew?

Do You Think The Media Over Hyped 

 

Hurricane Matthew?

 

I know many folks think that the media really over hyped the mass evacuation of millions of folks from the Hurricane's sphere of influence. But did they really?

 

Sure it wasn't the hugely destructive and devastating disaster the weather forecastors had been prognosticating. But until you've actually been the victim of such a huge event or possibly even a stat you have no idea of what to expect.

 

The good news is that in the end the evacuations did in

fact save hundreds perhaps even thousands of lives

even though the financial losses will still be in the tens

of billions. But you're still foggin a mirror. Right?

 

The bad news? No doubt thousands of folks had to suffer through the inconvenience of temporary displacement, huge traffic gridlock, long lines at the gas station, bare shelves at Home Depot and the supermarket, hours of boarding up and securing, packing and preparing for an unexpected vacation and just the overall inconvenience of not being able to enjoy the the comforts and confines of their own humble abode.

 

But how may folks have returned home to find fallen trees and downed

electrical lines that could have landed on them or one of their children,

flooded out homes, wind and water damage that could have made for a very

uncomfortable couple of nights?

 

Look at it this way folks. At least with a hurricane you have plenty of advance notice and have the option to act accordingly which makes you so much better off than those who suffer the ravages of a CAT 5 tornado or a 6.7 earthquake. Neither of which offer much if any advance warning.
