While the internet is flooded with many videos depicting the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, a video of a man tackling the disaster has gone viral. The video shows a Florida resident giving a peculiar solution to tackle the hurricane as he says the Navy should throw “ice” at Hurricane Dorian to stop it.

Use Navy and drop ice

While standing outside in a floral beach shirt, the man said that everyone is aware of what is happening around them then why does the navy not fly its plane around the hurricane to make the winds go in the other direction. “I don’t see how they haven’t come up with some way to combat these storms yet,” said an unidentified man in the video. “All this warm weather and warm water. We have Navy. Why doesn’t the Navy come and drop ice in the warm water so it can’t get going as fast as it’s going,” he suggested. 

The peculiar idea has received more than 3 million views and many netizens came up with hilarious responses.
