It seems like Jimmy Buffett is having fun as Hurricane Florence is making its way to the North Carolina coast. The musician went for surfing in the hurricane-fueled waves. The 71-year-old Margaritaville restaurant founder decided to surf in the waves on Folly Beach, South Carolina while many other people were fleeing the location. Buffett wrote in the caption of an Instagram image of himself posing with his surfboard, “I ain’t afraid of dying I got no need to explain. I feel like going surfing in this hurricane.”
While the musician enjoyed surfing fearlessly he adviced other not to do the same as it can be dangerous. He added, “On a serious note– respect mother nature, please be safe and listen to your local authorities.”
South Carolina Henry McMaster and North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told people to be alert and serious about Hurricane Florence. Governor Copper said, “We have been saying every day for almost a week that this is a historic storm and we are worried about two things. One is the ocean surge, which will contribute to river flooding, and the historic rainfall that we are about to have.”
According to the Weather Channel, Hurricane Florence, which is making headlines and buzz across the world, is a category 2 storm as of now along with wind gust of 106 mph. The hurricane is supposed to affect the Carolinas while the water level on the western side of Pamlico Sound, North Carolina, is already rising, People reported.
The cast members of Southern Charm will also get affected by the powerful storm. While Buffett enjoyed surfing, the cast of Bravo is rushing to the safe place.
One of the cast members, Austen Kroll previously told People, “I hope everyone and their loved ones keep an eye on the storm’s activities and stay safe.” Kroll continued, “South Carolina, and Charleston specifically, is no stranger to hurricane season. I’m hoping that the damage they are predicting from Hurricane Florence’s landfall is not as devastating as expected.”
