You probably wouldn't need to leave Fla, but you'd probably need to get way inland. All depends upon what emergency management decides is necessary. I believe Floyd DID cause a northerly evac for FLA residents (I'd need to check), but then Floyd suddenly veered North striking the Outer Banks and EC, brushing LI with TS winds.

And therein lies the problem...because of the danger Floyd posed, the evac had to be undertaken well ahead of the anticipated landfall. So, of course, when there WAS no landfall, undoubtedly many residents will not heed the warnings the next time a major hurricane threatens FLA and residents are told to leave. Gives them a false sense of security. Complacency in the future could lead to a number of unnecessary deaths. So, once again, if you are told to leave, get the hell out of there.
