Hurriances. I've been though so many i'm used to them. As a kid I lived on a small island in the pafffic in a very hurriance active zone. I wouldn't worry about those poeple in the huts. They've been dealing with hurriances FOR A LONG TIME. Looks like its going pass over us.

Dude tornadoes can be more scary then hurricanes. I've been though both. My grandma lives in tornado ally. ANd when I first moved here we had a torando. In neb. Didn't do no damage to the house but seeing a car FLY down the street in midair is damn scary.

Yeah luckily in Cali all we have is the blazing sun and occasional earthquakes, but I really feel for people who have tornadoes. I mean those things seem sooooooo scary, I'd prolly piss myself if I saw one in real life.

Arkansas has a major fault in it. It moved the mississippi river a few decades ago. http://quake.ualr.edu/public/nmfzones.htm

Default Easy guy...

Before you jump contact your local Red Cross. Dennis is not making landfall for several days. Plenty of time to do things right.

Personally speaking, I would go west out of the track.
