This Infographic Comparing Hurricane Irma To The Infamous Hurricane Andrew From 1992 Is Horrifying

When Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida in August of 1992, it was the strongest in decades. When it was all said and done, Andrew destroyed more than 63,500 houses, stripping some homes of everything but the concrete foundation. The 165 mph winds damaged more than 124,000 other houses and caused $26.5 billion in damage, making it the fifth costliest Atlantic hurricane to hit the United States. And worst news of all, left 65 people dead.

Fast forward 25 years later, South Florida is fearing for a direct hit of Hurricane Irma, the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. The storm has already killed 24 people in the northern Caribbean islands and left hundreds of thousands of people in Puerto Rico without power.

Irma is expected be near the Florida Keys and South Florida by early Sunday holding the title of a Category 4 Hurricane. Governor Rick Scott has already informed his Sunshine State citizens that they should prepare to evacuate at the drop of a hat. The Red Cross estimates 1.2 million people have already been battered by the storm, CNN reports.

The infographics below compare the Hurricanes Andrew and Irma, and if I were a Floridian I’d get the fuck out yesterday.

Hold on, Florida. We’re with you crazy bastards.
