Yes, you should care about the Waffle House index

The index turns red when Waffle House is closed. On Wednesday, Nia Watson, a local news reporter for WMBF, tweeted that the Myrtle Beach Waffle House had closed for the storm.

If a Waffle House closes, officials believe that area must have been hit hard.

The idea isn't to look just at Waffle House, but to use it as a proxy to determine how badly the disaster has affected the area, and to learn how quickly it is recovering, FEMA wrote in a blog post.

Should any Waffle Houses be devastated by the hurricane, the company also has its own emergency response squad that will send backup generators and other equipment to get the restaurant up and running after the storm. If there were a Waffle House in London during The Blitz that bad boy would have been taking orders for steak and eggs in between bursts of anti-aircraft fire.

Waffle House stays open 24 hours a day, so when it closes, that's when you know a storm is very risky.

"If a Waffle House store is open and offering a full menu, the index is green", a 2011 article in the magazine EHS Today says. "Plan ahead and be safe". "After a storm, they're of route having a perceive to us to be there to inspire them out resulting from they're archaic to us being there the reduction of the year."Waffle House is headquartered in Georgia, and has extra than 2,000 intelligent areas, majority within the South".

Hurricane Florence path: Storm moves to SC - bringing CATASTROPHIC flood risk
By Friday morning Florence had already sapped power to almost 450,000 customers in the Carolinas, emergency officials said. The White House on Saturday said President Donald Trump had approved making federal funding available in some counties.

It's a real thing - and the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses it. FEMA has since developed a color-coded system that is dependent on Waffle House's status.

Many from the South decide how severe a storm is and if it warrants evacuation based on if Waffle House shuts its doors or not, and on Wednesday it appears some have ahead of Florence. We call it red.

This doesn't just show FEMA how quickly a business might rebound, it also shows it how the larger community is doing. You have not any longer came upon the deplorable stuff but."Waffle Condo spokesman Pat Warner talked about Fugate came up with the check for the length of the 2004 typhoon season in Florida". If it's yellow, that means the menu is limited to specific items. The sooner restaurants, grocery stores, and banks re-open - the sooner the local economy and recovery restart.

Warner said the restaurants along the Carolina coast impacted by Hurricane Florence are gathering resources, so they can open as soon as the storm is finished.

During hurricanes, Waffle House is often the measure of the hurricane's damage.
