He parks his Smart in his kitchen to protect it from a hurricane!

This American used drastic measures to prevent his Smart from flying away because of Hurricane Dorian which hit the United States

His name is Patrick Eldridge. He lives in Jacksonville, Florida and when theouragan Dorian fell on the United States, he had the good idea (?) to park Smart Fortwo in his kitchen for a good week. You never know, in case the wind takes it…
