Woo, that was the worst weekend ever. I live in Winter Park, FL. lol We got hit with some nasty stuff.. a bunch of little trees blew down around my house.. infact, one of the trees by my house cracked in half and started blowing around all crazy. My uncle's window broke and blew in, a few gutters got tossed around and part of the roof on the building next to us started to come up. All in all, the hurricane rocked, the aftermath did not. My room got SOAKED and now it stinks. >.< My uncle Bob and aunt Cathy got a tree through their house and i've seen quiet a few businesses that need repairing.. A lot of central Florida is without electricity (it included us until last night) and some of my family's work is down as well. (Talk about a weekend, thats craziness) I've heard of only 13 deaths and most of them are in Punta Gorda. The Eye passed right over us and that was the end of that, after that.. nothin' but wind.. glorious wind. It felt kinda surreal, since we've been dodging the bullet for so many years, ya know? I hope everyone else is okay..

It was a bad day in Florida for many people so far 16 dead,I saw it rip of the top of palm trees and fly away i saw roofs of many homes slowly breaking apart then flying and tumbling down the road,it was just mass destruction in Arcadia,Where the winds blew atleast 130 MPH and the rain went completely sideways and blinded the eyes.

I live in Canada and I have some relatives in Florida. I heard about Charly several times and Just today I read that there is hundreds of people missing; 21 dead! That's awful. To all you Newgrounds users that have relatives there I wish you the best of luck!

It never really hit New York. I was at a concert when it was supposed to really be bad, it only drizzled a bit.

I live in Orlando, and I've made a video documentary of my time during Hurricane Charlie, from during the storm to the aftermath.

This video covers a large part of Orange county - mostly Orlando and Winter Park. I stayed over at my friend Gian's apartment during the storm. It was an interesting time.

The video is around 30 megs, in QuickTime 6 format:

Warning: it has some bad language.

I live on the east coast but I went into orlando for the storm. I never miss the hurricanes. I lived just north of Miami when Andrew hit and ive tried to go to every single one since. But i saw an entire tree sliding down the road and blast through a fence. It was the greatest thing i saw of this hurricane.

It is a good thing I was not in Florida or otherwise I may not survive. That Hurricane has made heavy losses of buildings. Hopefully the NG fans in Florida have seeked safer ground. It seems that hurricanes are things to be on the look out for.

That's not good news for people in Florida. My relatives live in Miami and when I watched some climate pictures which were posted before. I think my relatives will be fine because they are far away from the hurricane.

Luckily I live in Finland (almost no nature disasters exept small flood and trombi which are rare in here)

Guys, what's with all the pro poser criticism on America all of a sudden? That FÛÇKÎÑG |\|ØØ|3£ÉT who insulted wade should just shut the F@#! up, seriously. He doesn't know what he's talking about. You poser critics should be ashamed of youself acting all righteouslike as if you did anything to help. If you care so much about Cuba or 3rd world countries, get your lazy fatass off the damn couch and do something about it yourself rather than being a goddamn nerd posting crap no one wants to see on NG. To the commentators on how little USA has contributed, go fuck yourself because no one cares about what you say, and I seriously doubt you've done anything fo rthose countries either, and if you post that you did and tell me to stfu, then you're probably lying and trying to spite me, and I wont even bother to reply back to you. All these dumbasses make those posts not because they care, but because theyre fat nerds with no friends who are bored and have nothing better to do, and can go get a life because, IF YOU DO CARE, you wouldn't piss people off on NG because that just guaranteed 100% that they're not gonna donate to that cause, just to spite you, which is quite obvious. If you did care, you'd ask nicely and encourage people to donate and crap like that. So the next time one of you stupid assholes want to post something similar to the whiny complaining bitches, think carefully because i just might flame you and chew you out. Good day to those of you who actually cared and show compassion :) good luck in you guys' life, you guys are good people.
Now that I'm done with the foreword, let's continue to the real discussion. Fulp Bros, I may have broken a rule by using many insults but i believe these obnoxious jerks deserved it :), hope you dont ban me.

I feel really bad for the people in Florida. I keep wondering, what if it was me whole lost everything i cherished, my home, my posessions, and my loved ones? :( think about it, there are some relief aid programs going on and I have donated 50% of my stashed allowance (ha ha) to those charities to help the people in Florida (214.47$)

i'm from central florida, where it hit hardest in the state, it was really really intense. i saw some trees fall and we went and picked up street signs around 1am when everything settled down some. it was madness for about 4 days cos no one had electricity, my bf and other friends are just getting it back today. others might have to wait til next week...high schools throughout polk county are closed for at least the rest of the week. i think there were only 5 deaths tho so we were somewhat fortunate.
