According to Smith everyone in Florida should move 20 miles to the west, or they won’t survive the upcoming storm. Unless the residents in Florida are very lucky they and even their children will die in this storm.
Although Smith used these strong words to give across a message, his segment which spread across social media was not met with kindly. Many people believe Smith used an inappropriate way to make the message come across in such a time, according to Telegraph.

According to The Sun, storm specialists, the likes of Bryan Norcorss are saying the storm is unlike any seen ever before and there is no comparison in record books.
