My spouse as well as I were incredibly lucky to be spared while we were in the recent hurricane.
We were forecast for a direct hit, but the hurricane headed to the west at the last possible moment.
Both of us acquired a great deal of rain, but the winds were terribly mild compared to the section where the center of the storm happened to be. All of the rain came down fast as well as flooded much of the area. My spouse as well as I have a property in a low-lying area. Until this hurricane, we have never had any real issues with flooding. Both of us have seen storm surges from previous rain, but nothing in 25 years has ever caused such a huge amount of damage. The heavy rain caused major flooding in our backyard, but just last month, my spouse as well as I paid for a brand new Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C. The heat pump as well as air conditioner were installed roughly a month before the hurricane. During the heavy rains, all of the outdoor components were drenched in water. The brand new air compressor was submerged under the water! Some of the indoor Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C components were wet too, but our property was spared any serious flooding. The insurance covered all the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment that was outside the property as well as flooded by water. Both of us also lost a majority of our fence while we were in the rain as well as winds. There are still a bunch of people in the outlying areas that don’t have working water or power. Our area was spared, while others were hit really hard. The hurricane season isn’t over yet as well as we will be devastated if another storm comes through.
