Just take that shit and have a bonfire
Yea but the problem is that it doesn’t take a 100 year storm to take out those wood houses.
Looks like a video I remember seeing of Folly Beach after Hugo.
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.
Lol. No, that's not how it is done if you expect FEMA reimbursement.
Saw someone claiming cape San blas is now an island. Haven’t seen anything showing that for sure
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.
Saw another report saying the same thing. The north end is cut off at eagle harbor
There is a pass there now
Damn. Didn't similar happen to part of Dauphin Island during maybe Ivan?
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 ). As mentioned, Dauphin Island and many other barrier islands are split all the time.
Yeah that's down past where most of the residential stuff is, mainly the state park and camping
Previously hurricanes had cut the cape below the bay preserve buffer right where 30E turns onto the cape past the Air Force site
Leslie is on an absolute bender
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.
On her way to this
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.
Re: making a run at Portugal -- hurricanes can hit Europe?
Yep. There was a good 60 minutes piece on how the Dutch have handled it. Theyre making proposals to the US soon.
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.
Ice caps are melting anyway
This bitch trolling the entire need North Atlantic
It's definitely a women. Don't know where she wants to go for dinner
More appropriate from her current track
Currently in a hurricane in Dallas a.tramp
What is the square root of a banana split?
Both my house and my parents house are in the last 10% to receive power here in Tallahassee. And it may be a couple more days till it’s back on
I’ll keep harping on this because people will keep making excuses and never learn.
It's not an excuse, just reality.
Their architect, Charles A. Gaskin, said that building a house the way they did roughly doubles the cost per square foot, compared with ordinary building practices.
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.
The problem is the building codes aren’t stuff enough.
Right, bc of money. Make the codes super strict and most of those houses won't be able to be rebuilt.
Multiple tabs get me every time
I'm really not sure how you are missing so badly on this issue.
