A woman living in the path of Hurricane Florence on the coast of North Carolina says she is not evacuating because the storm is an “adrenaline rush.”
Jenna explained to MSNBC why she had not heeded the call for a mandatory evacuation and placed herself (and possibly first responders) in danger:
At this point, I am going to stay as long as I can. There’s a chance that they won’t close the bridge if you have sustained gusts of 40 mph. So until they close the bridge, I’m going to be here…
It’s an adrenaline rush. You know, you can’t control Mother Nature. She doesn’t make exceptions. And as a surfer, you never see waves this big except for during hurricanes. So it’s kind of surreal to see them here.
After willingly placing her life in danger, Jenna explained how she is worried about her “sacred belongings “:
This house is set back farther than most. And 100 mph, you just don’t know what’s going to happen. Someone else’s roof could blow off and smash into yours. Yours could blow off. You always have to know where your most sacred belongings are.
