Here in volusia county many coastal residents did not evacutate. Reasons being, no funds due to loses from Charley and Frances. The southern end of the county had no gas, hence no gas to even get to free shelters. Some evacuated to other areas last time that were hit harder than this area. The most common reason I have heard, is that they weren't allowed back home for extended periods of time last time and are just plain old sick of being stranded. Our shelters had 5600 persons in them with Frances, with Jeanne we currently only have 2200 in them.

With the exception of the southern most portions of this county we aren't getting hit as bad as they had predicted. I hope all those people are safe.
