    5G could mean less time to flee a deadly hurricane, heads of NASA and NOAA warn

    They're suggesting people could die because we won’t have enough evacuation time

    That's funny.

    All you have to do is keep paying attention to the news. Most of the local newscasts (at least here in the Biloxi / Mobile / Pensacola areas, along the Gulf Coast) will have a look at the tropics for tropical depressions, tropical storms, or hurricanes. It doesn't take a 4G or even a 5G phone to survive or evacuate an area about to be hit. In most cases, you can generally see a hurricane before it hits. Very rarely do they pop up over night. The idea is to be prepared. My family keeps a supply ramen noodles (about a month's worth) & a case of bottled water at all times.

    For me the worst part is the aftermath. After going through Hurricane Georges, Hurricane Ivan, & Hurricane Katrina (even though we got less than Pass Christian, MS & New Orleans, LA did), there's no electricity & it gets extremely HOT. High pressure systems make it even worse. They sometimes move in after a hurricane passes. I've been lucky enough not to have any damage to my home. Katrina knocked a tree down in my yard, which fell on an unoccupied building next door to me. Fortunately, it didn't do any damage to that either.

    The big storm that most everyone likes to talk about here in Mobile, is Hurricane Frederic, which hit in 1979. It was a category 4 storm. That was about 11 years before I moved here though.

    Here's a link to a 40-year anniversary special they did on Hurricane Frederic:
    Hacking games is always fun because you don't know what's hidden in the game.
