Florida spirit guides and psychics silent on huuricanes

The highest North American concentration of professional psychics, mediums, and spirit guides has over the past 3 decades been in Florida. By business category filings, advertising counts, and even store fronts their concentration in Florida exceeds Nevada, and since the 1990's passed California. Yet the generally elderly age of this population means that like elsewhere its literally a dying business.

Yet once again there is nothing but silence. Not even a last gasp warning from the Florida paranormal community to protect the public. Indeed, I can find no public forecasting on even psychic web forums about the outcome and pathways of these on-coming storms. Visions on what the week will bring or the devastation of Hurricane Jose? Nothing.

(Hhhhhmmmm. Hurricanes. I can't seem to correct the thread title.)

They didn't want to scare anyone, so they will release their prior predictions after the events. They will have dates up the top and everything.

Carlin was the only true seer. "Tonight's forecast.... dark, with a chance of partly light in the morning."

They're the only people here not talking about the hurricane.

If psychic power were real - THIS IS WHEN THEY'D STEP UP.

Think about it, they could tell the National Guard, Police, and Rescue Teams where to pre-position their forces. They could tell in advance which areas will be devastated. Plus they could warn about the unexpected aspects that come with every disaster.

And even if you're hack you have a 50/50 chance of making a variety of accurate predictions.

It's always been the case. These supposed psychics can tell you if you've found your true love or what auntie Mable was doing last Thursday, but for as long as I can remember there have been any predictions or warning regarding all the Earth-shaking events that have occurred in the last 50 years

Oh there have been plenty, slight problem is that they only appear after the event!
