Your photos proves it once again…build HIGH. Storm surge is the monster! With 140 mph winds your home and neighbor’s home had very little damage while other homes were reduced to match sticks due to not wind…but water. Your roof is intact. I see no damage to the shingles.

Sad to say, but it bears repeating, most of the deaths from Ian were due to drowning. When will people ever learn to pay heed to the warnings to evacuate? Storm surge is not minor flooding! They believe they can survive even if the surge is only 3 feet. They don’t realize all things floating become battering rams! We’ve always been told to store away all outside items as they become flying missiles from the wind! Then combine those winds with storm surge and high tide. If you make it through alive it would be a miracle! I once heard if water is half way up your driveway it’s too late to evacuate! Your only option is to grab an axe and head for the attic!

I recently moved back to FL from the MS Gulf Coast. I lived across the street from the beach. When Zeta of 2020 hit it became a low cat 3 at landfall. My house was built on 16” concrete piers. U.S. 90 in front became the Gulf of Mexico. My elevation was high, 23 feet, so water didn’t reach the parking area under my house. My neighbor’s yard which has a lower elevation had water half way up their driveway. They found part of the city’s pier jammed into their fence. BTW, the part came from about a quarter mile away.

My slab lot in Long Beach, MS had a 32 foot storm surge from Katrina. Look at the extent of the surge coupled with high tide.

When told to evacuate…run! And run fast as if your life depended on it!
