The largest evacuation in US history is underway as more than 5.6million people have been ordered to leave Florida before Category 5 Hurricane Irma strikes the Sunshine State.

The state’s Gov. Rick Scott urged people who had not left yet to leave as soon as possible on Friday. He warned those who plan to stay, that they may have to ride out the dangerous storm at their own risk.

He explained that the biggest concern with the powerful hurricane is the predicted storm surge that will come along with the lashing winds and heavy rains.

Andrew Sussman, the state’s hurricane program manager, said Friday the total of those urged to flee Florida includes people throughout the southern half of the state as well as those living in inland Florida in substandard housing.

Florida is the nation’s third-largest state with nearly 21million people according to the U.S. Census.

Meteorologists expect the powerful hurricane to hit the Sunshine State on Sunday. As of 6.30pm ET Friday, the hurricane is moving west at 12 mph and located 345 miles southeast of Miami and is now a Category 5 storm.

Hurricane Irma made landfall in Camaguey archipelago, just off the northern coast of Cuba, around 11.10pm ET. This is the first Category 5 storm to hit the island since 1924.

    Well “folks” here it is… the mass event to cause confusion and disarray in the U.S. of A. is here. The bastards could not get the Oroville dam failure going, so here we are facing a new disaster of immense proportions and causing an evacuation of an area ten times that of the would be California flood. And, don’t you bunch of paid trolls come on and tell me how ‘THIS IS AN ACT OF NATURE’ Not even you paid off cock-suckers believe that. Unheard of and unprecedented in the records kept on our weather. How many people will die because of that filthy (bastard and the Clintons) due to this event. And, just for the record any of you who want to challenge this note vis a vis, come to New Mexico and I will introduce you to truth.

    Well, Manny, you pretty much hit the nail on the head. In addition to the destruction of property and loss of life, watch this! Insurance companies will fail due to the mass of property loss. Funding to rebuild will not be available due to the collapse of Wally-St. and the other financial instruments. Our government will be in total disarray and all this will be blamed on President Trump. Banks will close on “bank holiday” across the nation and your money will be available in spurts and limited amounts. If you aren’t prepared with food, water, guns and such you will be phucked and end up in a FEMA camp and that my friend is the last that will be heard of you and your family.

    Most of evacuees will never return.
    Once the two nuclear power plants reach the meltdown point, that will signal THE END.
    Suddenly homeless and jobless, FEMA will be the only place to go.
    This time, ignorance will not be blessed.
    The signs of things to come are written on the wall but the sheeple refuses to acknowledge that something is wrong.
    Trump will not save you, it’s up to you to wake up and smell the coffee.
    The worst didn’t happen yet!
    We are all screwed.
