The Mississippi lot my current house sits on had a house taken out into the Gulf by Katrina. The storm surge which occurred during high tide was 32'!




Yes, I rode through the area just after Katrina. Water is a cleaning agent and will clean the average building right off of the slab. Nothing left but slab.

That said. Irma has still not made the turn, yet.
