NCIS Pauley Perrette Shared Her Fears for 'Friends and Family' in the Path of Hurricane Dorian
Pauley Perrette is afraid for her family who may be affected by Hurricane Dorian, but followers who were also in the storm's path reassured her.
"NCIS" alum Pauley Perrette has friends and family in Jacksonville, she says, as well as other places which were said to fall in Hurricane Dorian's pathway.
Dorian left the Bahamas devastated last week when it hit them with Category 5 winds and caused at least tens of deaths and widespread flooding.
However, Perrette was concerned about after that, when the storm was forecasted to move along the southeast coast where some of her people reside.
In an early-morning tweet, she wrote:
"I have beloved friends and family in #Jacksonville and the GA, SC and NC coasts, and I'm SO SCARED!"
Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina were all affected each by a different measure by Dorian which reduced to a category three and then to a two in the past few days.
Perrette received tons of responses from fans, many of whom are in Florida and other states that would be affected. Jeff Shannon resides in Jacksonville.
"We're all pretty chill right now. As long as your friends and family are prepared and have a plan they should be fine."
I'm in Jacksonville. We're all pretty chill right now. As long as your friends and family are prepared and have a plan they should be fine. 💪🙏♥️— Jeff Shannon (@jeffyboh) September 2, 2019
Another user named Gabby encouraged Perrette not to panic, but to pray for her loved ones. "You've got to stay positive and stay you Pauley!" she wrote before assuring her that her family would be alright.
As of this weekend, CBS reported that the storm is heading to southeastern Massachusetts as it makes its way toward eastern Canada. So far, the Bahamas experienced the most damage from Dorian.
Hey, the best thing to do right now is to not panic. Pray for them! Remember, prayer Is a powerful tool. So use it. You've got to stay positive and stay you Pauley! You're friends and family will be alright! 💖💖— gabby🍑 (@MsVenableGreys) September 2, 2019
Approximately 43 people have been confirmed dead while almost 70,000 were left homeless. The Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line assisted in the evacuation of over 1,500 from Grand Bahama.
North Carolina also experienced intense flooding and those people who refused to evacuate had to be rescued late Friday afternoon. Almost 800 of them did not expect the storm to be so bad.
Perrette was also surprised back in July when earthquakes rocked her home in California, forcing her to consider a move to Alabama. The area was hit by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake.
I’m so afraid to go to sleep tonight. I sleep with three #rescuedogs There’s a ceiling fan above our bed. I turned it off, but another #earthquake? It could fall. This is just a bad time. I’m scared. Everyone is scared.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) July 6, 2019
In a tweet, the actress revealed that she was afraid to sleep underneath her ceiling fan because "it could fall." She added: "This is just a bad time. I'm scared. Everyone is scared."
Perrette said her dad was her "rock" in another tweet where she described being "terrified" of another earthquake. Again, the 50-year-old's fans responded with words of comfort.
In a later tweet, Perrette said she was considering moving back to Alabama with her dad but "that's scary too" as the area is plagued by tornadoes.
Thank you for you love , prayers and bible verses. I love you guys. And it occurs to me to move back to Alabama with dad in the middle of the woods. But that’s scary too. Dad has been ground zero for tornadoes three times! Lost his roof twice! No warning for #earthquake— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) July 8, 2019
She noted that her father lost his roof twice due to three tornadoes. However, there are no warnings for earthquakes. It seems like there's no escape for Perrette from all the disaster the country is experiencing.
