Hurricane Florence is currently making its way across the Atlantic and has set its eye on the Carolina coast, according to FOX News. The Category 4 storm is said to be bringing with it 130 mph winds and upwards of 40 inches of rainfall.
To cope with this worrisome situation, the internet has seen fit to take Hurricane Florence and provide comic relief through a series of memes.
Of course, these memes aren’t referencing the damage that Hurricane Florence is predicted to inflict on North and South Carolina, but rather the many puns and pop culture references that online users have concocted.
The most common references have been to Florence Welch, who is the lead singer of the group Florence + The Machine. The singer’s powerful voice and stage presence has provided the perfect meme outlet for the incoming hurricane, and users have been quick to draw the comparison. This is especially the case with the Florence + The Machine track that’s titled “Hurricane Drunk.”
