Florida Police Urge People Not To Shoot At Hurricane Irma

Florida Police Urge People Not To Shoot At Hurricane Irma

It's a headline I never thought I'd have to write because I never thought that people would need to be told not to do something like this. But it appears that in 2017, we need our authorities to remind us that shooting at a Category Four hurricane won't do anything to it.

Ryon Edwards and Zeke Murphy started a Facebook event, titled 'Shoot At Hurricane Irma'.

While some people might laugh at the idea, more than 26,000 people are apparently 'going' to the event and more than 53,000 are interested.

But the Pasco Sheriff's Office has sent out a warning for people to stay indoors and bunker down instead of standing outside in a massive weather system and shooting bullets at it.

It reads: "To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons @ #Irma. You won't make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects."

Ryon Edwards has told the BBC: "A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event.

"The response is a complete and total surprise to me. I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of crazy idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control."

But the event has sparked others which are recommending people to do some whacky things to turn Hurricane Irma around or help dissipate it.

The Category Four hurricane is due to shortly make landfall in Florida, with the entire state under warning as it's expected to track all along the thin west coastline.

Residents in the Florida Keys have been ordered to evacuate, with Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long telling CNN: "The message has been clear: The Keys are going to be impacted. There is no safe area within the Keys. And you put your life in your own hands by not evacuating.

"You're on your own until we can actually get in there and it's safe."

Irma has already killed 24 people after it decimated the Caribbean Islands earlier in the week.
