Hurricane Matthew is currently raging over Florida’s northeast coast, and when times get tough, the best thing to do is laugh (okay, evacuate first, THEN laugh. But still). Here are the best Hurricane Matthew memes that the Internet has gloriously come up with to take your mind off the mass devastation!
These are dark times. Apocalyptic, even. Disney World has closed its doors. Wal-Marts are being ravaged. Football is canceled. What can we do, but laugh about it? Without further ado, here are the funniest Twitter and Instagram memes that the blogosphere has funneled its energy into. Enjoy.

This one has actually sparked its own meme. Other amazing captions include “forgot my headphones”, “When you hear there’s a hurricane coming but realize you left your @olivegarden pasta pass at home” and “When you gotta evacuate because of a hurricane but you forgot to clear your browser history”.

All joking aside, Hurricane Matthew is serious. The storm, which is currently a category 3, is surging up Florida’s coast and heading north. It has left a reported 300 people dead in Haiti, and one in the United States. Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas are in States of Emergency, and President Obama has called upon federal aid to support local efforts. Many Florida airports have canceled flights or closed altogether, and The National Weather Service has issued flash-flood warnings and hurricane watches.
If you’re in an affected area, be sure to consult this official list of the evacuation orders for counties by state. Stay safe!
