    Hurricane Ian, now a Category 4, will hit Florida today


    Hurricane Ian is approaching Florida with landfall expected later today. The latest forecast track has the Category 4 storm coming ashore between Fort Myers and Sarasota County early this afternoon. Tampa Bay remains under threat of hurricane force winds and heavy rain likely to cause flash flooding and power outages.

    As of the latest update from the National Hurricane Center, Ian has top winds of 155 mph — only 2 mph short of a Category 5 — and is pushing a storm surge that could cause damage along the Gulf Coast from Bonita Beach to the Tampa Bay region. Although the “cone of uncertainty” has moved south of Tampa Bay, Pinellas and Hillsborough County remains under a hurricane warning and Pasco County remains under a hurricane watch. Tropical storm force winds and higher could arrive in Tampa Bay as earl

    Last Thursday, the Senate passed a bill that included $18.8 billion for FEMA. Rick Scott (R-FL) voted against the bill. Marco Rubio (R-FL) couldn't be bothered to show up for the vote (his one and only job, for which he's paid $290,000 a year). The House voted in favor of the bill Friday. All 16 Republican members of Florida's Congressional delegation voted against it.
    Previously in 2013, Marco Rubio and Florida Governor (then-U.S. Rep.) DeSantis voted against Federal aid for Hurricane Sandy’s victims.

    These despicable fucking assholes today:
    “A robust and timely federal response, including through supplemental programs and funding, will be required to ensure that sufficient resources are provided to rebuild critical infrastructure and public services capacity, and to assist our fellow Floridians in rebuilding their lives.”

    Not content with one of the biggest Hurricanes in the past hundred years, now we're facing a meteor storm shower
