Hurricane Dorian is closing in on Florida, and businesses are capitalizing on its hashtag

Hurricane Dorian is closing in on Florida, and businesses are capitalizing on its hashtag. #HurricaneDorian is a mashup of companies hawking their products, mixed with warnings about the coming storm, and cute puppy memes. As the Florida governor urges residents to gear up for a Category 4 life-threatening storm, product pitches wielding the hashtag awkwardly stretch for customers. One Instagram post encourages residents to buy honey: ”Due to its healing abilities and nutritional value of raw honey its a must-have in our hurricane kit!” Another intravenous drip product offers an unlikely solution (via Instagram), “Here’s a way to avoid the madness over bottled water during Hurricane prep, get a Hydration IV.” Visit floridadisaster.org/info for the latest info and for help preparing for the hurricane.
