Florida Man rushed to Louisiana to battle Hurricane Laura with metal music

Hurricane Laura was very, very bad for the people of Louisiana, but had it tracked slightly to the east, it would have been a whole lot worse. The entire city of Lake Charles could have been flooded off the map.

But, like I said, the storm moved ever-so-slightly to the west, sparing Lake Charles from the full force of a 20ft storm surge. Could this have been the world of Florida Man?

In case you don’t know about Lane Pittman, he’s the guy who has been fighting hurricanes with the power of metal. He began in 2016 when he assaulted the oncoming Hurricane Matthew armed with nothing more than an American flag and SLAYER. He did the same thing against Hurricane Florence in 2018. And when he heard about Laura, he got in his vehicle and headed west.

Laura required the use of Maylene and Sons of Disaster. Did it work? You be the judge.
