    Yea but the problem is that it doesn’t take a 100 year storm to take out those wood houses.

    Here you go Arkadin around the 38.30 mark they start doing flyovers of the beaches after Hugo. 40 minute mark is the Atlantic House, or what was left of it.

    Most of the stuff has nothing to do with FEMA. The rest of the stuff you leave.

    ETA: regardless of how they get it out, it’s impressive how quickly they do it. Same with power companies getting lines back up.

    It’s not that uncommon for hurricanes to open/close passes

    I can think of 3 or 4 off top of my head just in central/SW Florida

    That’s what barrier islands are for, they are constantly shifting

    Yes, the big one happened during Katrina - it's now called Katrina Cut (and holds quite a few trout :gfa:). As mentioned, Dauphin Island and many other barrier islands are split all the time.

    There’s a little museum at Ft Pickens near Pensacola Beach that shows how Santa Rosa Island has shifted over the years due to hurricanes.

    The Outer Banks get new inlets cut all the time. Much more frequent there due to the storms, etc. Very weird seeing it happen on the Gulf, though, I agree.

    Ivan opened up a pass to Little Lagoon in Gulf Shores further down from where the “real” pass is. Fucked up the water flow and now the state has a permanent dredger to keep the thing open.

    Later on in the article they say that it really only adds 30k. Although I'd guess it costs more than that. No way it adds 400k to a house.

    It says adding some storm-resistant measures would cost $30k. That particular house cost double according to the architect. It was built to withstand 250 mph winds. That's awesome but no way will it be the norm. Here's the issue, most of those houses were built 30+ years ago before all of the new measures were even around. Hopefully the new houses that are built will have some of the new stuff. People would be crazy to add on the $30k. But the idea that everyone will rebuild for 50% more or higher isnt realistic.


    Other experts had different views of the expense required. An estimate published in Forbes in 2012 said implementing an array of storm-resistance measures, including some of those advised by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, would add more than $30,000 to the cost of a typical house.

    I’m still in awe of the devastation, I guess it really seems worse when you actually know the area and what was once there.

    Another bright spot to the weekend was our boy JoeyB going 3 for 4 with his leg with the miss at least not being a duck hook or shank. I will take 75% all day.

    Right, bc of money. Make the codes super strict and most of those houses won't be able to be rebuilt.
