After surviving Hurricane Ian, some homes in Florida are facing a new danger: electric vehicles catching fire due to their batteries being corroded by the floods. State Rep. Bob Rommel and state Fire Marshal Jim Patronis have been particularly vocal about the threat of EV fires in the aftermath of the hurricane. Rommel tweeted on Monday about a house that had managed to outlast the hurricane, but couldn’t survive the EV fire that later started in the garage. “This house survived Hurricane Ian with very little damage that was until the Tesla in the garage caught on fire. House is now destroyed,” Rommel wrote.CORRECTION*


How do they explain THAT one to the insurance company??

There is a solution. Just refuse to buy, drive or even ride in an EV. Good for the pocketbook, good for the environment, good for your and your family's safety.

Have had much experience with lithium batteries even pre EV days. The only way to stop a fire is cut off the oxygen supply and heat. Water works but the fumes (smoke) are deadly. Try evacuating a CAT 4 hurricane in an electric car. You'll just be in my way.

the white tesla shown in pics and vids? A couple of questions... WHY is it pointed the wrong way on a divided highway? in the perspective that shows it from the also shows that it has no license plate. The hood is notched where firefighters had to use a saw to cut out a section of hood over the latch to get it open. Was the car being towed when the fire started? Was it on a rollback that dumped it off...or being towed backwards on the ground?

As volunteer firefighters, we've been trained that EV vehicle fires need copious amounts of water to put out, meaning the 800 gallons in the truck isn't enough. We need to get hooked up to a hydrant as soon as possible.

‘Gender-Affirming’ Care for Minors

On Friday, the Florida Board of Medicine and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine Joint Rules/Legislative Committee passed a resolution prohibiting puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgery for minors. The rule only applies to children under the age of 18, and kids already being subjected to puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones as part of an IRB-approved clinical trial at a university-affiliated center will be allowed to continue treatment. Dr. Nicholas Romanello, a member of the Florida Board of Medicine, proposed the rule after explaining that the risks of the treatments outweigh the benefits, and pointing out that the national health departments of Sweden, Finland, and England have abandoned “gender-affirming” care for minors

New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul this week encouraged parents to remask their toddlers to protect them from RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), contending that children are “more socialized to the idea of wearing a mask” anyway. “Let’s talk about exactly what RSV is. These are the symptoms. I want parents be aware of that, usually fall and winter. It’s like a common cold, but it does hit younger children and it’s really frightening,” Hochul stated. “It’s not new at all. Something we’ve seen before.” “Infants as young as six months old have been known to contract this. It’s hard to keep kids safe.

Despite the lunacy of gun grabbers like embattled New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul, who recently declared, there’s “no such thing as a good guy with a gun,” facts belie the idiocy of the Second-Amendment-threatening claim, from clueless Joe Biden, and on down the Democrat totem pole. The most recent case in point came in July, when a 22-year-old hero neutralized a would-be mass killer in an Indianapolis-area mall in just 15 seconds, as the shooter emerged from a bathroom and opened fire, killing three people. Yet, on cue, the gun grabbers came out of the woodwork to condemn the hero, with one tweeting: Why did he bring a gun shopping,

Joe Biden is a pathological liar. That’s easy to prove. Just about every public statement that he’s made is an outright lie. His claims about his law school career and standing were false. He claimed to have marched during the civil rights movement — a lie. He’s lied repeatedly, boldly about Hunter’s corrupt business dealings, and his intimate relationship to them. He’s spent 47 years stacking lie upon lie, building a colossal monument to his depravity and to the public’s gullibility.

At newspapers, obituaries are typically written in advance. The Washington Post had plenty to work with when the death of Lucianne Goldberg happened, but instead of remembering good, or at least balancing their summary, they selectively chose to remember the great muse of the right, Internet pioneer, and accomplished woman from a time when women weren't allowed much accomplishment, by printing only cherry-picked tales of dubious sourcing that made her look phony. It was garbage. It stood in stark contrast to the insightful and warm-hearted tweets that overwhelmingly were the consensus on Twitter, from wildly different parts of the Internet spectrum.
