the world's smartest travel social network
Whether travelling locally or abroad. It is wise to best check the path of any severe weather. While such storms can be an annoyance causing delays, flight cancellations, and trip deviations, they can be much worse. I have travelled with some that say that "It is nothing.", or "I've been through it before." But it is always worse than they care to admit. Others seek danger and look to stare the hurricane in its face- tempting it, taunting it, daring it to harm them.
