    Exclamation Hurricane Irma: Important Information

    BEEF LIVE FEED: https://www.twitch.tv/tehbeef
    Hurricane Irma Advisory


    [Updated 9/8/17 | 12:00AM]



    -As you all know, this large hurricane is likely to hit Florida as a category 4 or 5 storm this weekend. To briefly summarize, there are two scenarios everyone in Florida needs to look out for: The possibility of the hurricane hitting either the east or west coast of Florida.

    -If you live in Florida, like myself, (unfortunately I am on and island too) you need to watch this storm carefully. Several admins here live within the cone of uncertainty of this storm and I would just like to say be on alert. Make sure to have a contingency plan, prepare by fueling up your vehicle, having backup battery chargers, and have non perishable food and water.

    -Stay updated with NOAA here: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_at1.shtml?cone

    -Please expect myself and some others to be on a potential extended LOA if we are forced to evacuate or have other issues caused by this storm such as power outages, storm surges, structural damage, etc..


    Server information:

    BMRP: Any major events this weekend in Black Mesa Roleplay will be postponed until further notice due to another admin and I in the path of the storms uncertainty. Thank you for your cooperation. Other server events and or passive roleplay will continue.

    GTA: If you are an admin, contact Cvey or upper management if you live in Florida so they know.


    I wish everyone the best of luck, and please stay safe. Expect updates daily.

    9/7/17 Update:

    NHC indicates still that there is an equal possibility of the hurricane to affect both eastern and western sides of Florida. Time is running out if you live near these areas. Please pay close attention once again, most gas stations have an hour or more wait. Airlines and hotel fares have been reduced due to the hurricane to help anyone evacuate.


    I am still in the cone of the hurricane, mandatory evacuations are being placed just south of my island this weekend, good chance I am getting the hell out. Expect me to be LOA for a decent amount of time if all goes bad.

    Here is a map of the most accurate (European | ECMWF) model for the hurricane track, it shows where most of the affected staff team is located.

    The following members are either evacuating or taking shelter in their home:


    -Crate Time

    -Beef
    -Sicarius
    -Myself

    If your name is not on the list and you live in Florida please state specifically below.

    I'm out for the week, expect others above to be. Give them the common courtesy and respect while they are gone.


    [9/8/17 Advisory]


    -Hurricane heading towards central area of Florida on a westward track.
    -Multiple areas on a mandatory evacuation status (Coastal/Inland).
    -It is still exactly uncertain where this storm will exactly head, but there is an absurdly high chance Florida will face a direct hit within the margin of error. It is not worth the risk at this point to stay. Leave if you can. The window is closing fast, and this is a fast moving storm. Friday night/early Saturday morning looks like the point of no return. Make sure to check out the advisory on the NOAA page either 5AM or 11AM Friday.

    Hello, I am currently typing on my phone. If you live in the Tampa area just leave at this point. Unfortunatly most tracks have the hurricane gaining a bit of strength and Tampa may feel the forefront. I just drove past hundreds of national guard vehicles in a line, things are serious. Please pray for us all, expect an even longer LOA. This will be my final post untill I get internet access in my shelter.

    Boys we did it, we are on the red cross, Salvation Army, Feeding Tampa Bay home page. I should be fine but others will not and that is fact. This is the worst hurricane to ever hit Florida,; We are out of gas, water, and other supplies and airports as well as ship ports are closing or closed already. Most of our hurricane shelters have reached capacity and they are trying hard to open more but not sure if they can.

    To the non-Floridians or New Floridians that have never been through a hurricane.
    I have only been in through 1 hurricane (in my life that I can remember) and until you go through it you do not know how bad and scary it is, We are all used to seeing images that it does not shock you anymore. Well watch your house flood and have no way to get out, it's scary. This is nothing but below i'll post some videos of when I was in the hurricane (It was a tropical storm when it hit and this was nothing) Right now i'm under a mandatory evacuation, this means if I call 911 and ask for help they will not help as it will endanger their life. Do what you county says, do what the police say it's not the time for arguing. I know most people here are still living with their parents and as for some advice with that. Don't get angry or mad at your parents, Do what they say and be the one to ask what to do to help, Everyone is stressed out but you need to step up. Pick up small objects, cut trees if you still can. Make sure your in a strong home or get to a shelter when you can.

    If you can please donate to the Red Cross , Salvation Army, Feeding Tampa Bay , Charity Navigator or some other reputable aid group. Not only is Florida an issue but the islands it hit are destroyed, They are so badly destroyed we don't know how bad it is because they have no way to tell us; 95% of all buildings are damaged or destroyed. Don't buy that new game, Use that money for something good you really don't know how much it helps.

    If I don't see you guys for awhile that means I'm ****ed with life, It was good knowing you guys I guess. Hope to see you in the hall of fame then and live on in history.
