5 named storms active right now. That is pretty impressive!

I feel bad for the gulf coast states right now.

It does seem like less of a disaster to wait out a hurricane at this point. At least the air is breathable over there.

Especially the weaker hurricanes. Sally is rated at 2-3 at landfall. We won't know about those which follow, until they get here.

"This is going to be historic flooding along with the historic rainfall," Stacy Stewart, a senior specialist with the National Hurricane Center, told the Associated Press. "If people live near rivers, small streams and creeks, they need to evacuate and go somewhere else."
If you live in a flood prone area, no matter where, DO have evacuation ;plans in place and practice them.
