Will Irma take our powder?

Among all the humanity and infrastructure being threatened by Irma, it occurred to me---St Marks Island---is in Irma's sights. St Marks Island where Teledyne manufactures many gun powders.
Should this be a consideration for those of us in the rest of the country?
How will this affect reloaders? Ammo manufacturers? Government contractors?
Any ideas?

It will not affect me.

I learned my lesson a long time ago.

Not short on propellants.

Over the years, I've collected a great many powders, plus I still have most of an 8 lb. keg of Alliant Promo. I may run out of other components, but I'm good on gun powder.

I imagine the flow of Cocaine will only be temporarily interrupted due to Irma.

Propellants will most likely be inturupted more significantly - not as much demand.

American's priorities and the rules of supply and demand at work.

I thought Bloomberg and Obama were doing that and were part of organized crime.

Nah, there's some people that even THE MAFIA won't associate with... Sorta like why both of those guys are shark-proof. There's some things even sharks won't eat.

It might cause a temporary disruption but I'm sure they'd have it back up pretty quickly. The commercial market has other places to get powder from too, such as the Vihtavuori, Sweden, Canada, Belgium, Germany and Czech Republic. Sorry if I missed anyone!
