Please Don't Be Dumb And Fall For These Hurricane Florence Scams...

posted by Morgan Cook - 

Hurricane Florence is getting ready to hit the coasts of the Carolinas.

(Watch live updates of the storm above.)

But with all of the media attention it's getting... That also comes with a lot of false reports and scams.

Jane Lytvynenko, a reporter at BuzzFeed News, decided to track down all of the Hurricane Florence scams she could find...

Here's a list she's kindly put together of the hoaxes surrounding this particular storm:

1. THERE ARE NO SHARKS IN THE HURRICANE!

Enough said...?

2. Some people think that hotels are required to accommodate your pets. 

Well, they're not. (They said it, not us.)

3. Don't put your important documents in the dishwasher. 

Even the companies that make dishwashers are telling you this isn't a thing...

But a washing machine beer cooler?

Hmm... Not the worst idea though...
