    ot1h, I agree that we don’t need any more rush-Limbaugh-like “trutherism” on any subject, not just hurricanes. otoh, as a lifelong resident of hurricane alley, I am (mostly; yes, there are caveats) in favor of “sheltering in place” for hurricanes, since the inland tornadoes and flooding spawned by hurricanes are deadly too, and WHAT WE REALLY DO NOT NEED IS PEOPLE STUCK IN THEIR CARS ON THE HIGHWAYS for lack of places to evacuate TO.
