By my reckoning the first warnings were around 1 September. That is 9 days ago. You could have walked 90 miles in that time...! I'd rather walk and be further away than sit in the car going nowhere and get flattened when it arrives, personally.
Also, 9 days ago I bet you could have got a flight almost anywhere outside Florida. Now not so much.
As I said, personally I would have left immediately.
Friends of mine moved out of their house a couple of days ago to stay with friends. Turns out the friends' house is no longer in the "safe enough" zone, so they've all had to move out again. Last heard from, they're in the great parking lot.
