People who are feeling rundown and exhausted in the middle of the Hurricane Dorian preps might be feeling ‘hurricane fatigue.’ The slow moving storm has brought days of uncertainty which can put strain on your body.
It is why families like Jean Waldron’s are taking a break of Fort Myers Beach.
“I’m ready for it all to be over,” said Waldron.
The Cape Coral family needed a time out from Hurricane Dorian.
”We are having a hurricane party. A non-hurricane party,” said Waldron as about a dozen families members enjoyed drinks and food.
She was happy to wind down from the chaos of the week.
“There is no gas in so many places. All the water is gone. The bread is gone,” said Waldron.
She isn’t the only one feeling overwhelmed. Even Florida’s governor knows people have been on edge for awhile.
“It’s been a very frustrating experience not knowing,” said Governor Ron DeSantis during a news conference.
‘Hurricane fatigue,’ according St. Petersburg College, comes when hurricane warnings and precautions exhaust our bodies. We can get adrenaline rushes every time the body goes into a “fight or flight mode,” which can happen during storm preps.
“It makes people crazy. crazy,” said Waldron.
St. Petersburg College if you are feeling the effects to focus on your food and hydration. Plus, take a break occasionally and do something active.
