    The people who are declining rescue are in shock or praying that the water recedes quickly and when they snap out of it and realize thats not happening it’s a lot. This has been a very traumatic situation.

      @frikinfrezy all I can say is even with past disasters we're still one of the top fiscally responsible states. If we go down that rabbit hole I'll blow your mind with comparisons of how we don't waste federal money. You need the coastal communities here because of the federal taxes they provide. The insurance game here is extremely shaky I will agree to that but even with this current disaster we won't bankrupt the federal system vs 3/4s of the states. We live in a country now that when certain people run it prefer to give money to people that have nothing to do with our country. I agree we could definitely do more for our own but that means cutting the tit off from the other non citizens we funnel money too.

      @Zen Vibe Friends of mine who went to FEMA shelter post eruption of volcano in Hawaii were lucky they had family in Sacramento to get a flight to, because government-managed shelters did not have enough water, food or beds. And not everyone has transportation or health to get to such shelters!

    Prayers for ALL of you that are affected. I'm very scared for the elderly that were at home alone & no one knows they're there, coz they won't be able to get out. I'm also scared for the morbidly obese, cos they're not going to be able to physically do what they need to save themselves. The Mamas with small children & babies that, the people who where severely ill & unable to physically save themselves... There's so many more to be worried for, not to mention the pets. Material things can be replaced, yeah it's hard, but they can be. Lives can't be replaced, and floods like this are indiscriminate. They don't care how much money you have, how old/young you are, or if you're immunocompromised. My prayers go out to ALL of you 🤞🏻🙏🏻😢🕯️

  • Pinball Rick

    I've said it before. I have no more sympathy for those who refuse to evacuate than I do for someone who dies after knowingly popping a fentanyl pill. With few exceptions, every person being rescued had every opportunity to evacuate before it was too late and chose to stay. Rescuers are heroes and will do all they can to help, but be assured that they are irritated or even pissed at the people they are having to rescue when these 'victims' had every opportunity to get out on their own but did not. You are not a victim if you made that choice unless you count being a victim of your own stupidity. You are told in advance to expect winds of 150MPH. "Duh, I didn't think the wind would blow that hard." You are told in advance how high flood waters would rise. "Duh, I didn't think the water would get that high." Duh! An evacuation is given for a reason dummies! People that ignore evacuation orders not only risk their own lives, but are unnecessarily putting their rescuers at risk. Reality check: You are not the indestructible star of a Bill Paxton movie braving a twister. You are a soft sack of meat that can die remarkably easy. How many times have rescuers been injured or killed trying to save some idiot that refused to evacuate? When they must be rescued these idiots should be held responsible for their poor judgement and be required to foot the bill for their rescue, any assistance they receive (food, water, shelter) and even be prosecuted should someone else be injured or die because they were too stupid to evacuate. It's too bad that refusal to evacuate doesn't also mean consent that you will not be rescued or receive any type assistance once you realize you screwed up. That rifle toting woman realized she had made a mistake in deciding to remain in her home, but at least she was getting out on her own.

    As someone from Tampa, you can evacuate but that doesn’t save you from the storm. Hurricanes move and change direction FAST. Most of the people that evacuated from Tampa are now stuck in Venice and Orlando bc the storm changed direction and hit there. Anyone who stayed in Tampa is doing fine. It’s a gamble to evacuate from a storm that’s constantly moving.

    Without the retention ponds nearby, the water would be one or two feet higher at this moment.

    I pray that everyone in states affected by IAN understand that "unity" and being loving to your neighbors supercede any other earthly issues. Humanitarianship is what we all will need to do with climate change 🌎 globally.

    Perhaps they're declining the help because they're declining the media publicity.

    It’s amazing to see those who decline help. There are snakes, gators and sewage in that water!

    After the storm, many people thought they were safe. It was later that day that the flooding started and folks realized that were no longer safe.

    Why is the reporter being so judgmental? They’ve repeatedly said this isn’t normal for this area so clearly people were caught off guard by it. That first lady might have hesitated to leave because of her bad limp. That second lady could’ve gone back to grab some things and did leave earlier, so why are they trash talking while filming her? Reporters lacking in common sense and empathy should stick to reporting the facts, not shaming people.

    I would be terrified knowing there are gators and snakes without homes now too. They are going to be out there while people are trying to get through this water.
    What a scary thought

    Watertown, South Dakota had flooding like this in a warming spell, in late winter; then temps plummeted & it became a Froozen flood!! In homes and outbuildings at this depth!

    to all the shitters complaining about people not evacuating in Orlando, we we given a less than 5% chance of flooding right before landfall and weren't issued flood warning until about midnight when we were in the middle of the storm. and also the gators aren't the worst thing in the water, it's the power lines that are more dangerous.

    It is unfair if rescuers came to save you when it was safer and you decline and now you want help that put the rescuers back in more danger. That aint right they want to go home also

      @Steve Oranges local shelters were taking pets. So many pets were left behind. They rescued hundreds the last time I saw. People shouldn’t own a fur baby if they’ll abandon them. A lot of them drowned that was left.

      @BeachGirl What if their car is on its last legs and they don't want to break down in bumper to bumper traffic. What if they don't want to leave their pets. We lost power here in Orlando 24 hours BEFORE the storm was scheduled to arrived. Keep in mind people from Tampa were told to evacuate to Orlando.

      True but people need to have a natural disaster savings set aside so they leave. Like a hurricane emergency fund if you live somewhere in Florida or Louisiana because hurricanes season is a yearly thing.

    The people were warned and they either dismissed it or their DNA didn't allow them to understand that when your told to evacuate, heed the EVACUATION warning. This seems to be a lesson that they can't, don't, won't learn. Just leave them to their own devices and don't drag others into dangerous situations because of your decisions.

    New Orleans was flooded by the levees breaking. Lake Pontchartain not the Gulf flooded the city.
