Hurricane Wilma is heading for Flag!

In 1983, Hurricane Alicia was heading straight for Clearwater, the whole area was evacuated, except for the Fort Harrison. We were told that the "OT's would keep the hurricane away, and sure enough, she turned north at the last minute. I have been trying to google it, but all references to the Flag hurricane handling on ars have been mangled...was anyone else there then?
Let's see how the "OT"s do with Wilma.
I think in retrospect it was incredibly irresponsible to fail to evacuate back then.
I do have to chuckle at the thought of VMs coming to the rescue of the SO at Flag, though it won't be funny at all if it really happens.
Somebody on ars was having a chuckle about the "confidential" PC folder papers flying all over the Tampa Bay area!
I really do hope everyone survives.
Too bad there are no hurricanes in the middle of the desert where Davey keeps his ill gotten millions. Chasing hundred dollar bills through the snake infested cacti, now THAT would be worth a road trip!
