On Hurricane Ian approaching Florida:
“The good news is that Florida has a lot of experience doing this. Unfortunately, I say that because we’ve had a lot of storms. A few years ago I went to the National Hurricane Center, and I remember asking them, ‘What would be the worst possible storm that you can imagine hitting our state?’ They described basically what we’re facing right now, which is a powerful hurricane that sort of stalls off the coast, doesn’t even have to make landfall over Florida, just stalls off the coast and pushes a bunch of water into the Tampa Bay region and into the western part of the state. 
“We’re talking about five to ten-foot storm surges, which are not survivable. You can shelter a little bit against the wind. You can hunker down in place, but you cannot shelter against water [with] three, four, five, six, or seven-foot storm surges. When it gets that high, you can’t survive it. 
“The only way to avoid dying in that is to leave when they tell you to leave. They’re not just arbitrarily telling you to leave. They know the areas that are most vulnerable to this. So, if they’re telling you to leave, it’s because it’s going to take time to get you to go. “I hope people are listening to that. We’ll follow those orders because this is a life-threatening thing. There’s no way to ride that out. That’s what we’re facing now––potentially the worst case scenario in terms of storm surge.”
