Florida’s Pasco County police department had to warn residents Saturday to not shoot guns at Hurricane Irma, telling them that firing at the storm “won’t make it turn around.”
As of Sunday morning, 54,000 were marked as “interested” and 27,000 as “going.”
When the event time neared, Edwards clarified, “Well guys, it’s here. The moment we’ve been waiting for. It was cool to see the response this got from Facebook. On another note, I’ve learned that about 50 percent of the world could not understand sarcasm to save their lives. Carry on.”
The Pasco County sheriff’s department told VICE News there had been no incidents of guns being shot at the hurricane as of this posting. Pasco County sits just north of Tampa, on the Gulf Coast.
