I read in the newspaper that National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield retired today with a warning that a hurricane ten times bigger than Katrina will strike south-east Florida and will leave thousands dead and millions homeless.

Should I seriously reconsider moving to Florida based on this??
Is anybody freaked out?

Mike Jones,

Is up to you. I lived in the state for over 12 year and I'm not concerned. If a hurricane is coming we leave the area and come back. Can it happen, YES. Will it happen, no ones is for sure. See below for odds of dying:

There is also an asteroid that will very likely extinguish all life on earth March 16, 2880.
Want something to worry about, worry about your cholesterol.

It was interesting the scientists when questioned about it and what they will do. They said it would be like asking Columbus how to fix the Hubbell telescope. They just take it for granted that between now and then there will be such scientific advancements that it will most likely not be a problem.

YES, you should freak out if you sell Insurance. But the good news is it would clean the everglades.

You know what is funny, what he says is not at all what the original poster said. I didn't see anything about a hurricane 10 times bigger then Katrina.
