Over 58,000 people have pledged to fight Hurricane Irma by placing fans outside in an effort to push the storm away from America.
“Everyone takes their fans outside and points them at Hurricane Irma to blow it away from us. Air compressors with a blow gun attachment also a plus, or anything else. Get creative. Date/time subject to change due to the unpredictable path it may take,” explained humorous Facebook event “Everybody Points Their Fans At The Hurricane To Blow It Away.” The event went viral as Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas prepare for or evacuate from one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the Atlantic.
The Facebook event will continue for a week. Anyone who is interested in helping their neighbors in the southeast can also join one or more of the following Facebook events:
–Shoot At Hurricane Irma
–Line up on the coast and shoot Kamehamehas at hurricane Irma
–Spinning your arms really fast to push away Hurricane Irma
–Throw hands at Hurricane Irma
–Goth dancing to blow hurricane Irma away
–Hurricane Protest On The Beach
