Sheriff’s morbid yet practical suggestion for people staying put during Hurricane Laura

CNN quotes the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office’s grim but practical suggestion for people in the path of Hurricane Laura who aren’t evacuating:

Those choosing to stay and face this very dangerous storm must understand that rescue efforts cannot and will not begin until after storm and surge has passed and it is safe to do so.

Please evacuate, and if you choose to stay and we can’t get to you, write your name, address, social security number and next of kin and put it a Ziploc bag in your pocket. Praying that it does not come to this.

They wisely stopped at that point and left it to people to deduce why you should such waterproof ID on your person.
