Sheriff Warns: Don’t Shoot at Irma

Ha. Personally, I love the graphic.

The Sheriff’s Office in Pasco County, Florida, has warned residents to not shoot guns at Hurricane Irma after a Facebook event went viral

Two residents of the state started the event, titled ‘Shoot At Hurricane Irma’, and, as of Saturday evening, more than 53,000 people said they were interested in the event and 25,000 said they were participating.

A description for the event read: ‘YO SO THIS GOOFY LOOKING WINDY HEADA** NAMED IRMA SAID THEY PULLING UP ON US, LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST’.

Deputies warned, however, that shooting at a hurricane could have devastating consequences.

‘To clarify, DO NOT shoot weapons @ #Irma. You won’t make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects,’ the Sheriff’s office tweeted on Saturday evening.

One of the co-creators, Ryon Edwards, 22, told the BBC he created the event out of ‘stress and boredom’ and never expected the kind of response that came out of it.
