While the exact path of Hurricane Joaquin is not yet certain, the Hurricane Joaquin Phoenix memes continue to storm the Internet.
Internet fans found it easy to connect the sometimes eccentric, award-winning actor's name with the hurricane as the storm bumped up a Category 4 and pounded the Bahamas on Thursday, MarketWatch reported
. The East Coast is expected to dodge the serious effects of the storm as it pushes out to sea over the weekend.
Surprisingly, the New York Police Department was one of the first players online to use the actor's name and likeness to turn the public's attention to the hurricane and its possible path. The original meme was created by the comedy website Flama
, according to Mashable.
