Although Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc among the Caribbean, U.S Citizens are currently preparing for the storm while adding some humor to it.
Charlotte Stories reports a Facebook event has been created to blow away the Category 5 storm with electric fans. 58,000 people have joined the campaign to “blow” the storm away in another direction.
The group is titled “Everybody Points Their Fans At The Hurricane To Blow It Away”. There’s also another group called “Spinning Your Arms Really Fast To Push Hurricane Irma”.

This is the group’s description:
“Everyone takes their fans outside and points them at Hurricane Irma to blow it away from us. Air compressors with a blow gun attachment also a plus, or anything else. Get creative. Date/time subject to change due to the unpredictable path it may take.
*Not responsible for any collapsed lungs should you choose to blow manually.”
Although it’s a lighthearted joke, meteorologist urge people to evacuate in order to stay out of the hurricane’s path.
