My family plus I were extremely lucky to be spared while we were in the recent hurricane.
All of us were forecast for a direct hit, however the hurricane moved to the west at the final moment.
All of us received a good amount of rain, however the winds were extremely mild compared to the space where the center of the storm happened to be. All of the rain came down abruptly plus flooded much of the area. My family plus I have a dwelling in a low-lying area, but until this hurricane, the group of us have never had issues with flooding. All of us have seen storm surges from rain in the past, however nothing in 25 years has ever caused such disfigurement. The heavy rain caused major flooding in our backyard. Just this past month, my partner plus I paid for a brand new Heating as well as Air Conditioning appliance. The heat pump plus cooling system were installed approximately a month before the hurricane! During the intense rains, all of the outdoor components were covered in water. The brand new air compressor was totally submerged under the water. Some of the indoor Heating as well as Air Conditioning components were wet also. Our home was spared any major flooding though. The insurance covered all the Heating as well as Air Conditioning components that were outside the dwelling plus flooded by water. All of us also lost a majority of our fence while we were in the rain plus winds. There are still several people in the outlying areas that do not have running water or power, but our neighborhood was entirely spared, while others were hit much harder. The hurricane season definitely isn’t over yet plus the bunch of us will be completely devastated if another storm comes our way.
