Vanilla_Ice

Early 90s rapper Vanilla Ice (né Robert Van Winkle), decided not to evacuate his home in Palm Beach, Florida, as Hurricane Matthew approached. Instead, he stuck around and tweeted to fans that he was going to ride it out and keep them updated.

Because, you know, when a meteorologist just isn’t cutting it, there’s always Vanilla Ice.

Good news: he seems to be doing well.

He wasn’t providing any updates overnight, but he came back this morning to let everyone know how he made out. Unfortunately, not everyone was quite as fortunate as he was.

And now that that’s done, he’s going back to work.
