For anyone interested in tracking this storm this is the site I like this year.
What I learned is that a CAT 4 can build a big surge especially in the right quadrant. Even if you don’t get a direct hit the surge can extend out especially if it was created by a large storm. Here we only got CAT 1 winds in Irma but got a CAT 4 surge. Remember the surge is SALT water. My neighborhood lost every vehicle left behind from Miatas to Escalades to large motor homes because of the salt and every pump and almost every appliance. All home electrical service boxes had to be replaced with no cable TV for weeks. We had two internet providers and one restored quickly also cell phones were almost useless. And we had it good with little wind damage.
One year to the day… The longest year of my life.
Tip: If you leave an RV behind take the batteries with you.
GOOD LUCK Y’ALL… GH
