Quote: Jim Cantore just brought up a really good point.
As many found out during the 2004 season. They stayed behind, and when it got really bad they called 911. Most, if not all, Emergency Service Agencies-Fire, Police, Ambulance, Sherriff; Will Not come out after the winds reach 45 mph. It is far too dangerous for them to come out and try and rescue you. If someone has asked you to leave. Be it family, friends or authorities. Please get out now while there is still time.
Actually my brother who is with the Sheriff's Dept was out in IVAN until the winds got around 60mph. Things got pretty hairy before they told everyone to come in. But yes there was a point beyond which they could not go out to rescue anyone.
