a Category 1 hurricane on Thursday evening, swamped her home.
As viewers concerned for her safety and questioned why she was at home,

I've utilised rafts in the past. This happens frequently in Florida during hurricane season.

Beth's condition is still unknown.
However, the storm victim shared a follow-up video yesterday that was shot from inside a pitch-black home and in which she begs for help from the public.
This past week, a former Category 4 hurricane battered the Southeast coastline with gusts of 150 mph and waves that reached 12 feet high,
flooding houses and leaving millions of Floridians stranded and without electricity.
