Hernando County is calling for a voluntary evacuation

along the Withlacoochee River. It's expected to reach a foot and a half above flood stage at Trilby. Emergency management director Cecilia Patella says they don't want to risk the lives of first responders with last-minute rescues. Authorities expect Talisman (TAL-iz-man) Estates, Lacoochee and other areas to experience flooding.

 

Air B-N-B says many of its hosts are offering free rooms for Irma victims... as well as first responders who are here to help. Spokesperson Kellie Bentz says they couldn't line up the hosts before Irma hit Florida, because the track kept shifting. She's also urging people to sign up with Air B-N-B to offer a bedroom or condo to help out.

 

Irma has been a disaster for farmers. Florida Agriculture Commisioner Adam Putnam, who's running for governor, says the citrus crop in Southwest Florida has been devastated... early estimates say 70 to 80 percent of fruit grown in that area has been torn off the trees. Putnam says Irma also tore up sugar cane fields and vegetable farms.

"Since social activities, like eating or studying with others, tend to happen in cafes and libraries where they are easily seen, students might overestimate how much their peers are socializing because they don't see them eating and studying alone." The same can be said for the rise of social media. Many are left feeling like others have more interesting lives, more friends, eat better food, travel more etc.

All of those poor animals!

Now, Palm Beach County Animal Care and the State Attorney's Office are hunting down the people who abandoned their pets during the dangerous hurricane, leaving them not even indoors but chained to trees and even cars.  Leaving a dog tied up alone is already illegal in the region, but the added danger of the storm qualifies the act as a felony, officials say.
