Southwest Florida is right at the peak of hurricane season, and it’s been quiet so far. But it’s unclear if that will last.

Some Floridians, however, are saying they fear God more than a potential storm. Christina is one Southwest Florida resident who says she isn’t afraid of any storm.

“We got nothing to worry about: We’re Florida people, we got it. We got it under control,” Christina said.

People are trying to keep calm, cool and collected. If a storm comes, they feel they’re ready

Another Southwest Florida neighbor, Ralph, says, “I don’t care that it’s coming. Tell it to come on.”

People like Ralph and Christina aren’t scared, but others feel nervous about the chances of a storm coming.

Edwin said, “You get a little scared. You know what I mean?”

Some people choose to stay ahead of the game.

“Get a lot of water,” Christina said.

But not everyone is keeping it cool like Christina.
