Dad, faster!

I'm pushing 80, son.

If we get caught, it's all your fault.

- Was not.

- Was so.

You just had to screw around

with that stupid kite.

- I'm glad it broke.

- Do you want me to punch you in the mouth?

Boys, knock it off.

Do something constructive.

Why don't you practice

your football plays?

Ouch. He hit me.

- Breeze.

- Yes, sir.

Here's a good one.

Red Dog, Omaha, 22.

I know that one.

It's the hook and ladder play.

We flank each other...

Watch out!

- You boys okay? You all right?

- Yes, sir.

We're high centered.

I gotta get you inside.

Come on, boys. Come on. Let's go.

It's coming!

Get up, Willie. Come on.

Come on, let's go.

Hello? Hello?

Come on.

I'm sure it's all right.

You boys stay in here.

I gotta get that truck back

on the road. You understand?

Let us help.

No, you're safer in here.

- Breeze, you're in charge.

- Yes, sir.

You got that, Willie?

This is all your fault.

He's... He's gonna be okay.

You know nothing can hurt Dad.

It's still all your fault.

- What's happening? Breeze!

- I don't know.



- Daddy!

- No!

- What's happening?

- Help!

Somebody, please help!

Looks like our projected

course for Tammy's on the money.

Upgrade it from a tropical storm

to a Category 1 hurricane.

Hurricane force wind's diameter

is up to 500 miles.

Looks like it's gonna hit

Alabama and Florida.

Get me the latest surface readings.

They're warm. Way too warm.

The gulf's at 91 degrees 200 miles out.

The NHC has 98 on the coastal buoys.

Plus the Azores-Bermuda

high-pressure system

is exceptionally weak.

Impressive, Miss Skooler.

Uh, Da Molino, get me Will Rutledge.

And, Miss Skooler,

I want you to run some numbers

on the spiral bands

- and get back to me ASAP.

- I'll have them in five.

Yeah, I need Will Rutledge.

Yes, it's important.

- Is this Dr. Rutledge?

- You got him.

Director Frobisher

would like to speak with you.

Sure enough. Put him on.

- I got Will.

- Hey, Will.

Hey, buddy.

Niles, my central pressure's

dropping like a stone.

What you got?

Satellite's got it at 999 millibars now.

So far your Dominator's in sync,

so, I need those drones airborne quick.

I'm on it. Trust me, I'm doing it.

I don't wanna stay out here

any longer than I have to.

25 years ago,

Hurricane Andrew laid waste to this town,

and now Tammy's here to do it

all over again.

- But this time no one's going to die.

- Yes, sir.

- That's why I've called a mandatory evac.

- We got this, chief.

Okay, now once every last car

makes it out of town,

the assigned officers are to make sure

them roadblocks are set up.

I don't want any looters

slipping back into town. Not on my watch.

- Yes, sir.

- Okay, now head out.

Excuse me there, Sheriff Dixon.

This here storm don't look like

it's gonna amount to much.

We gotta evacuate?

Now, Clayton, best to evacuate first

and then double-guess yourself later.

Now, be a good citizen and get a move on.

- Come on.

- Yes, sir.

"Braveness is the resistance to concern,

mastery of panic,

not absence of anxiety."

Mark Twain.

Spare me your poetry today, Connor.

I can't help it. It's in my Irish soul.

Your Irish soul left Ireland

two generations ago.

No. My parents brought me

over here when I was five.

I didn't know that.

There's a lot of things

that you don't know about me.

Still got two passports.

Gonna retire back there

when all this is over.

And here I've been stuck

on milk runs with you for a year

and I thought I knew

all there was to know.

What is the hurry?

We do have to bank this load

before the storm hits, so there's that.
