    Hurricane Florence is coming for me. I live in the middle of South Carolina and, as I type this, the sky is darkening and the wind is picking up.

    There’s an electricity in the air—that weird drop in barometric pressure is a sure sign a storm is coming. I live in a flood-prone area that might see high waters, but nothing like what’s battering the coast, where the storm surge might put up to nine feet of water in the street.

    Nine feet. It’s hard to get your head around, but now I know what that looks like—and how dangerous it is—thanks to video games and The Weather Channel.
