Hopefully Shepard Smith was wrong in saying that everyone who didn’t evacuate — and their kids! — would be dead!

Welcome to the world of 2016 everybody where there are people who would rather stay in a Category 4 hurricane and livestream it on Facebook than evacuate to safety. Think of the social traffic and the likes!

According to Mashable, “Florida Gov. Rick Scott said on Thursday, ‘Evacuate, evacuate, evacuate.’ Many people heeded the evacuation mandates. A few, however, pulled out their phones and started livestreaming.”

Here’s some footage of people who are in the eye of the storm. Hopefully they’re staying safe! Click here to see a Facebook Live map of people who were active livestreaming during the storm.
