How do you take on a hurricane? With SLAYER, of course

This is one of those stories that could only come out of Florida, the testes of America.

With Hurricane Florence ambling towards the state still rated as a Category 4 a million people ordered to evacuate, Lane Pittman thought he’d come to the rescue. His weapons? An American flag and SLAYER’s “Reigning Blood.”

Whatever Pittman did seemed to work, too. Florence swung north and was downgraded to a Category 1. And this isn’t the first time Pittman (known as “Florida Man” in meteorological circles) has battled hurricanes. His record includes a brawl with Hurricane Matthew (2016) and Hurricane Irma (2017).
