FL Residents Prepare As Michael Continues To Strengthen

October 09, 2018

 Hurricane Michael already has a bad attitude...and he's only getting more agitated


Hurricane Michael continues to gain strength as it marches towards the Florida coast. Michael is still a category one storm, but he’s expected to crank up to a Cat 3 by tonight. And according the National Hurricane Center, is offering life threatening conditions.

When you consider Michael is expected to make landfall along the Florida Panhandle tomorrow – everyone is starting to batten down the hatches – and in many cases, evacuate. As such, Hurricane warnings are in effect for the Panhandle and Big Bend areas of the Sunshine State.

Florida Governor Rick Scott has ordered activation of the State Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee to enhance coordination between federal, state and local agencies – and has issued states of emergency for dozens of counties to prepare for Michael's arrival.

 

#Michael could produce three life-threatening hazards along portions of the northeastern Gulf Coast: storm surge, heavy rainfall, and hurricane-force winds, with storm surge and hurricane watches in effect. Residents in these areas should follow advice given by local officials. pic.twitter.com/JZENNHSQTK

Man Credits Cigarette Lighter With Saving His Life

October 09, 2018

 Dropping his lighter may have kept this man from being shot.


A Georgia man is recovering after someone opened fire outside his home and he narrowly escaped being shot in the head. Tyrone Alexander was at his southwest Atlanta home and says he was about to smoke a cigarette, but dropped his lighter at the exact same time bullets crashed through his front porch.

“If I had not bent over I probably would have got shot in the temple,” Alexander tells WSBTV. A bullet did graze his head, but it could have been much worse if he hadn’t stopped to pick up that lighter. And he’s expected to make a full recovery from his injury.

Trick-Or-Treaters Over 12 Could Face Jail Time In This Town

October 09, 2018

 Tough luck for 13-year-olds who want to dress up for Halloween in Chesapeake, Virginia.


Halloween is just weeks away and kids across the country are getting their costumes ready so they can go collect candy, but one Virginia town has some serious rules about trick-or-treating. In Chesapeake, kids over 12 are not allowed to participate in the holiday tradition. And if they do? They could be slapped with fines or face jail time!

Apparently, the town has had the ordinance on the books for a few years now and someone recently shared a screenshot of the harsh rules on Facebook, where it’s gone viral because it’s just so unbelievable. It explains that if anyone over 12 engages in trick-or-treating or any similar activity, “he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.”

And that’s not the only wacky rule. Chesapeake, Virginia also only allows trick-or-treating between the hours of  6pm and 8pm and anyone who tries to collect candy after that cut-off time could be in trouble. So if a couple of sixth-graders who are hopped up on a sugar high while out trick-or-treating lose track of time and knock on the door of a cranky neighbor at 8:15, they could potentially be charged with a misdemeanor. Seriously?!

To be fair, Chesapeake isn’t the only city to pass ordinances like these, there are a few other towns in Virginia with rules about Halloween, but come on. Parents say their kids are growing up too fast, so can we please let them trick-or-treat as long as they want to? If they come to the door wearing a costume and are fairly polite, who cares if they’re 14 and it’s 8:15?
