My family plus I were quite fortunate to be spared while we were in a hurricane.
The people I was with and I were forecast for a direct hit, but the hurricane veered to the west at the last moment.
The people I was with and I received plenty of rain, but the winds were mild compared to the section where the center of the storm was situated. All of the rain came down suddenly plus flooded a good portion of the area, and my family plus I have a new household in a low-lying area. Until this hurricane, the people I was with and I have never had setbacks with flooding. The people I was with and I have seen storm surges from previous rain, but nothing in 25 years has ever caused such extensive damage. The heavy rain caused major flooding in our backyard. Just this past month, my fiance plus I paid for a brand new Heating plus Air Conditioning device. The heat pump plus air conditioner were installed roughly a month before the hurricane. During the heavy rains, all of the outdoor components were entirely covered in water. The brand new air compressor was entirely submerged under the water, some of the indoor Heating plus Air Conditioning components were wet as well, but our household was spared any major flooding. The insurance covered all the Heating plus Air Conditioning components that were outside the household plus flooded by water. The people I was with and I also lost most of our fence while in the rain plus winds. There are still multiple people in the outlying areas that do not have running water or power. Our city was spared, while others were hit a great deal harder. The hurricane season isn’t quite over yet plus the people I was with and I will be entirely devastated if another storm tracks in our direction.
