Floridians are boarding up their homes and businesses and leaving behind messages for Hurricane Dorian.
“Dorian Olive U 2 go back 2 sea,” reads the board on Olive U Mediterranean Grill in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
The owner, Abdul, told CNN that staff were with their families, and that the restaurant would open on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, boards at a snack bar in Boca Raton, Florida, read “Hieeeee k byeeee.”
The inspiration was “nothing really other then trying to have a sense of humor in a time of panic and preparation,” Matthew Williams told CNN.
“Thoughts and prayers with the people who are getting directly hit,” he said.
