Rush Limbaugh has rushed to leave his home in Palm Beach, Florida. Seems that a storm he called a media ploy is bearing down on him.

“May as well announce this,” he said on his radio show Thursday. “I’m not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow. We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.”

The Hill reported that conservative political commentator and author Mark Steyn would fill in for Limbaugh. 

“After heavy criticism from The Washington Post and NBC meteorologist Al Roker, among others, Limbaugh devoted considerable time on his radio show to insist he had also said Hurricane Irma, a deadly Category 4 storm with winds of up to 185 mph that has been tracking to likely hit South Florida for days, was ‘dire’ and’ mammoth,’” The Hill said.

“It’s gonna affect Florida no matter where it goes. And the effects in Florida, depending on where, are gonna be damaging,” Limbaugh said.

With Palm Beach County under mandatory evacuation, Limbaugh said it would be “legally impossible” to do his program Friday.

Earlier this week, Limbaugh said: “There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it. You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic.”

Limbaugh said Tuesday: “You don’t need a hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent and bigger and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it’s mission accomplished, agenda advanced.”
