Lynn Levine, a hairdresser in Duluth, has a home in Fort Lauderdale that she travels back and forth from every two weeks. Fortunately, Levine had boarded up her windows, and had prepared her home for a hurricane before leaving Florida.

"I kept looking at the weather channel and what wind was going to be in a few hours," said Levine. "It's just what it is, and you'll just have to worry about it then."
