Florida Governor to Residents: ‘You Need to Leave Now’

Florida Gov. Rick Scott made one final appeal to residents in South Florida to flee on Saturday as Hurricane Irma’s heavy winds and rain began to affect the area. Warning of a dangerous storm surge that could reach 12 feet, Scott said, “This will cover your house. You will not survive all this storm surge. This is a life-threatening situation.” The storm was downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane early Saturday as it raked northern Cuba, but meteorologists expect it to restrengthen before it hits the Florida Keys on Sunday morning. At least 25,000 residents have already lost power as the storm’s outer bands grip the state, Scott said. “If you have been ordered to evacuate, you need to leave now. Do not wait. Evacuate. Not tonight, not in an hour. You need to go right now,” he said. “Just remember this: Once the storm starts, law enforcement cannot save you.”

Spike Lee’s Crooklyn Voted #OneFilmNY Winner By NYC Residents

The Big Apple has spoken. Crooklyn has been voted winner of the “One Film, One New York” contest by Empire City residents.

“One Film, One New York” offered locals the opportunity to choose which New York related film would be screened free of cost at various locations throughout the metropolitan area. Spike Lee’s 1994 drama won the inaugural award beating out On the Town (1949), New York, New York, (1977), Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) and The Wedding Banquet (1993).

Crooklyn is a semi-autobiographical look at the iconic director’s family going up in Brooklyn in the 1970’s. Lee and his siblings released a formal statement regarding the victory.

Crooklyn was written by my younger siblings Joie, Cinque Lee and I. It’s a semi-bio story of our family – the Lees growing up in the pre-gentrified black and Puerto Rican hood of Fort Greene in ‘Da Republic of Brooklyn’ during the early ’70s. More than anything, Crooklyn is a love letter to our long-gone mother, Jacquelyn Shelton Lee. Our mom died of cancer of the liver at the too-young age of 41, didn’t smoke either. Crooklyn was the way we grieved and at the same time celebrated her brief but bold life. The Lee family thanks everyone who voted for Crooklyn; the support actually started May 13th, 1994, the day of its release. Also shout-out to the other great films too in #OneFilmNY.”

The movie will be shown on Wednesday, September 13. The screening location list can be found here. You can view the original trailer below.

Congrats to Spike on the much-deserved win. Let’s hope the Netflix version of She’s Got To Have It lives up to the original classic.

LA Residents Ordered Out as Raging Wildfire Threatens Homes

Authorities in Los Angeles have issued mandatory evacuation orders for about 200 homes in the Brace Canyon Park area of Burbank as a raging wildfire approaches. The La Tuna fire has already burned about 2,000 acres of land in the La Tuna Canyon Park area, and due to “erratic fire behavior, driven by strong, gusting winds,” it’s difficult for firefighters to predict all the areas at risk, the Los Angeles Fire Department said early Saturday. The National Weather Service also warned of “extreme fire behavior” due to high winds in the area. Nearly 300 firefighters were battling the fire as of Friday night, though it was only 10 percent contained. The fire has also shut down a 12-mile stretch of Interstate 210 during a busy holiday weekend.

Rasmus confirmed that the 35-year-old star had in fact made a significant contribution to the disaster.

“She’s starting out with a significant donation, and that donation is getting us to launch out into some areas that help us more effectively impact the communities that have been the most affected,” Rasmus said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “She has, over the years, been very generous to our cause, and we continue to work together. She has been a huge benefactor to our efforts here in Houston, Texas.”

Beyoncé launched BeyGOOD in 2013 during the Mrs. Carter World Tour. It’s a philanthropic effort that collaborates with global charity organizations to help people find jobs, provide clothing, counseling, housing, food and medical assistance.

According to an estimate by officials, more than 30,000 residents are in need of shelter. The city has experienced unprecedented levels of rain, and more is set to arrive over the coming days.
