After moving out of tornado alley into a state along the gulf coast, I don’t think what’s worse.
Both of us have the impending threat of hurricanes for several to several weeks out of the year, and the size and intensity of these hurricanes only grows with time.
I was smart enough to buy a condo that is supposedly rated to withstand winds equal to or greater than a genre 5 hurricane. My coworkers tell me that I shouldn’t worry and that my condo should be unbelievable if all of us were ever hit by a substantial hurricane. But I’ve seen some of the storms that hit other areas along the gulf coast in the past several years, and some have completely leveled homes love mine. When hurricane Michael hit Mexico Beach in Florida, the only condo left sitting was owned by a couple that told their building businesss to fortify the structure so it could withstand the strongest imaginable storm. This meant going beyond existing building code and preparing for something love a super hurricane, however in the end their condo still stands. Even if my condo is safe from most storms, I wasn’t sure about my Heating and Air Conditioning condenser unit. It sits outside in a vulnerable locale if a substantial storm ever managed to make landfall in this area. It was put to the test recently with a genre 3 hurricane that hit a portion of the state just miles north of us. Because of the size of the storm, it was almost love getting a direct hit regardless of the localement of the eye of the hurricane. I was ecstatic when the Heating and Air Conditioning condenser was still safely connected to its substantial concrete block after the storm passed. These are made for hurricane strength winds and worked exactly as flaunted.
