Hurricane Ian made landfall on the western Florida coast on Wednesday, hitting the state as a category 4 storm with winds in the 150 mph range.

On Friday, authorities in Florida said that 21 deaths had been reported since the storm hit, with early damage estimates in the tens of billions.

During this disaster, more than 1 million people on Instagram have been following the saga of a Florida man who goes by Ernie, a car collector who has been posting about his newly acquired McLaren P1 in Volcano Yellow with 300 miles on the odometer. The first post, under the username @lambo9286, was made on the 16th. On the 27th he posted a photo of the supercar with a few bags of groceries sitting in the front trunk. The caption read “My hurricane supply car #p1”

Things went south the next day as the storm pushed through his neighborhood, filled his garage with water and flooded the P1. The water then carried the cars inside through the garage door and out into the street. Ernie could only look on until the floodwaters subsided on Thursday. He went out to find his McLaren in the street, propped up on its right side by a toilet that also got caught up in the storm.

In a separate post, he showed that his 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom was also damaged in the storm, caught up in some debris next to a Honda Accord.

Commenters on the various posts about the P1 have been a mix of people expressing sympathy and chiding him for not getting the cars out of the danger zone before it was too late.

“Put it in a bowl of rice,” one commenter joked.

The P1 is a rear-wheel drive, mid-engine plug-in hybrid supercar that was produced from 2013 to 2015. It’s powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 and a 4.7-kilowatt-hour electric motor that, combined, can put out 903 horsepower.

Reached by Road & Track via Instagram, Ernie was understandably short, saying he’s assessing the damage to his cars and home.

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
