I was in Miami when I was 19 during Andrew... Myself and 2 friends sat on the beach wanting to just see what a hurricane looked like... (all from midwest)
we didn’t plan on sitting on the beach for landfall - but just wanted to see it in the distance..
I think we had no idea - we have plenty of experience with Tornado’s etc - but Hurricane’s - nope..
A local Sheriff’s Deputy came up to us and said - alright boys, you have 2 choices - spend the night in jail or get to the shelter, you’ve got 5 seconds to decide..
may have save our lives..
So I can’t judge too much - although this guy looks older than 19..
