I genuinely hate living in hurricane alley, especially as climate change worsens and simply makes the ocean water warmer where the hurricanes like to travel.
- I had to get updated homeowner’s insurance and flood insurance last year, and now I’m having a near death experience after a giant type 4 storm swept through the part however somehow spared my home.
So many citys just south of here were inundated with water. First of all, my friend and I had areas on the south end of the eye wall which were slammed with 20 feet of storm surge while in the worst of the storm. Those sites were basically dunked underwater and few structures reMained intact afterward. But concerns with flooding did not end there. The storm also dumped giant amounts of rain on the northern portion of the state that feeds the two largest rivers in our area. Both of these rivers spill into the same exact harbor, and both swelled so high that they breached levees in numerous sites. It was sad to see the aerial footage of all the citys that were put underwater just from rainwater swelling the two big rivers in this area. With so much detriment, I’m amazed that both my house and my Heating and Air Conditioning condenser survived unscathed. The Heating and Air Conditioning condenser is vulnerable while being installed outdoors. But that concrete block that was put on the ground underneath the Heating and Air Conditioning condenser was precisely intended to keep the device bolted down and incapable of being torn out of its own foundation while in an intense hurricane. The tough metal shell is also intended as a means of protecting the rare compressor inside the machine.
