Including Cape Coral. Meg said she was uphill 15ft above so I’m picturing her in the area not shown in blue. Looks like a good part of Cape Coral might fall in that area. Wind damage would be the biggest concern followed by water intrusion from damaged roofs, windows etc. Hope her roof integrity held up and they are doing okay. I know she’s posted about palms in the past being diseased and needing to be removed and likely now more but small potatoes IMO to house damage. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2022/09/30/hurricane-ian-damage-photos-videos/ Very sad to see photos/videos of the extent of damage and hear about the growing loss of life. Trying to house all those displaced as well as accounting for their lost or damaged businesses/employment is going to be monumental for Florida. I can’t help but wonder if people’s insurance coverage won’t be able to pay out as the company goes under from the extensive claims. I know Florida already has a homeowner insurance coverage problem and insurance companies are leaving the State. Our niece recently was talking to us about buying something on the east coast there and given projections for rising sea levels and tidal flooding in some cities now I thought she should look elsewhere. Rent, okay, but I’d be hard pressed to own. The damage from Ian may change her mind. Meg stated she was on a freshwater canal, so not on the outer areas of the cape, more interior, and had a metal roof. The most durable in storms, I just had my metal roof installed last year, on the roof today, no damage! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
