I've been offered a great job in Florida, and in light of all these recent hurricanes, I'm rethinking it. I know it's hurricane season and such, but if I'm constantly worrying about evacuating every year, I don't know if it's worth it. I'm also not from a place where natural disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes occur, so I have no experience or any idea if the media frenzy about it has any merit.
So a question to people living in Florida: how bad does it really get? Is it a constant fear? Should I be looking for a place with a bunker?
Thanks for your opinions,
Thanks for the advice. Do you live in FL? I've heard that it can be really humid. Is it the same more north, close to the border with Alabama? I'll be working in Crestview.
The good thing about hurricanes is that they can be tracked weeks ahead of landfall. When Irma's trajectory aimed at Miami in Sept.2017, we knew 1 week in advance we had to evacuate. It's not like earthquakes for example that can really surprise you. And these strong hurricanes do not commonly hit Miami, I would not let that stop you from living here.
