Having wreaked havoc in the Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian is now headed towards the East Coast of the United States with authorities issuing evacuation orders in wake of strong winds and downpour in Florida and the Carolinas.
With sustained wind speeds of up to 185 miles per hour, the Category 5 storm is being described among the most powerful hurricanes ever in the Atlantic Ocean, The Washington Post reported.
While millions of people have understandably been left scared by the approaching storm, one Florida man is just bewildered that the US military hasn’t done yet what it should be doing to control Dorian.
"We have a navy," the man told Florida Today reporter Tyler Vasquez, during an interview.
"Why don't the navy come and drop ice in the warm water so it can't get going as fast as it's going?" he said, looking into the camera.
"There's got to be ways to combat this instead of just pointing at the thing and saying, 'Well, now it's getting worse!'" he added. "Yeah, we know it's getting worse!"
The man even suggested that the military use the Air Force to tackle the problem. "We have an air force. Drive some air force planes around to get the winds going the opposite way," he said. "Get the navy to go in circles to fight it the other way," he added.
The man’s quirky solution to combating hurricanes has gone viral on social media, evoking a barrage of hilarious comments from netizens.

This could work, but you’d have to be careful about the navy ships getting too close to the edge of the earth and falling off.— Barry Schapiro MD (@bschapiroMD) September 2, 2019
