Sheriff warns Florida residents not to shoot at hurricane

Posted: Updated:

A Florida sheriff's tweet in response to a social media telling people to shoot at Hurricane Irma is going viral.

Two Florida men created a Facebook event Sunday called "Shoot at Hurricane Irma." The post said "Let's show Irma that we shoot first." 

In response to the event, the Pasco County Sheriff warned residents that shooting at the hurricane wasn't the best idea. 

"You won't make it turn around & it will have very dangerous side effects," said the tweet. 

One of the event creators told the BBC he created it out of "a combination of stress and boredom."
