Florida man parks Smart car in kitchen to protect against Hurricane Dorian

A man in Jacksonville, Fla., looking to protect his Smart car from Hurricane Dorian had a crafty idea to move it out of harm's way: He pulled it into his kitchen.

Jessica Eldridge said on Facebook on Tuesday that her husband, Patrick, was “afraid his car might blow away,” so he parked it in their kitchen.

Photos accompanying the post showed the car in the kitchen under ceiling lights, with a pair of dogs next to it.
