Re: Florence and More Heading into Season Peak

Very good advice! Before the four 2004 hurricanes hit Florida (we lived in St. Cloud) we purchased plywood, cut to fit each window, drilled holes into the plywood and installed permanent talons along side each window. Each piece of plywood was marked for the window it fit. When it came time to board our windows we were prepared as we matched the holes to the talons then fastened with a wing nut. We stored the “hurricane plywood” in the garage where it was available if needed. All folks in hurricane prone states should prepare as we did before a storm is even thought about. Do it at your leisure in the off season....then a major part of preparation has already been done.

But sometimes plywood won’t save your home as evidenced by Katrina’s storm surge in 2005. You can’t fight the force of water so evacuate if told to do so. We moved to Long Beach, MS several years after Katrina. The following photo shows what a high storm surge can do. The slab lot we bought had a 32 ft storm surge! Folks take heed...prepare....then if mandated....evacuate sooner than later. You more than likely would not survive the following:
