not another hurricane

My family is getting ready to evacuate as we speak. They leave tomorrow. Ivan a Category 4 Hurricane is projected to hit a 30 mile stretch of Cuba before heading towards Florida. My hometown would be devestated and mostly underwater (unrecoverable) if we were to be hit by a Category 2 Hurricane because the island I grew up on is already nearly a foot below sea level in some areas. If we get hit directly by this storm, which is what is currently being predicted, even if Ivan weakens, my hometown (which is located in the dark yellow portion of picture two) will cease to exist. And right now I am very, very sad.
