HURRICANE IRMA: Be Careful, A Lot Of Folks Are Off Their Meds

BCOA RATON, FL ( — We are not saying this to be politically incorrect or trying to generate clicks. We are hearing, and quite frankly seeing, that there are a fair number of people who are now days without medication that they likely normally take to deal with issues. A trip to a Publix in the southwestern part of Palm Beach County yielded a not insignificant number of folks sitting outside on sidewalks, smoking, talking to themselves and yelling at others. In stores, where people are literally hanging out in air conditioning, there were several people engaged in outbursts and irrational conversations, often with themselves.

Parents: When you’re out and about, watch your kids closely. We are not saying this to be alarmist. We have heard similar comments from law enforcement. Things are NOT back to normal. Doctor’s offices remain closed. There is an impact to days without power and air conditioning for those who have issues on a good day. Today is not a good day. Be alert.
