Recently, a Floridan resident, Ryon Edwards, encouraged fellow Floridians to shoot at the storm. He went as far as creating a Facebook page that surprisingly attracted interest. About 46,000 people were interested in shooting at the storm.

Some people have even suggest using flamethrowers to scare the storm away.

These inconsequential efforts highlight a dangerous trend. These efforts are fueled by pride and not by commonsense.

Man has always been dueling with nature since the beginning of time, when actually man should be ONE with nature.

Hurricanes shouldn’t be seen as threats, instead we should study and learn from them.
