Aftermath of Storm Damage

This house boat and yacht suffered significant damage during strong winds.

Powerful winds are one of the many deadly forces during a storm, or hurricane. However, the greatest threat to life actually comes from water. A storm surge is a dangerous event, where furious winds swirling around the hurricane, are driving deadly flows of water from our seas to the shores. This combined with the normal tides, can increase the water level by 30 feet or more! Having a storm surge can severely erode beaches and coastal highways. The pounding waves can take out boats and buildings, as you can see in the picture. As the water moves inland, rivers and lakes may be affected, and add to the damage from rising flood levels. While we can’t prevent storm surge, we do have a system that can warn us of the incoming threat. When a hurricane slams our coast, it’s important to be aware of all the dangers. Don’t take unnecessary risks during a storm. Conditions can change in the blink of an eye. It's important to know your evacuation routes, and where to go.
