15383Re: [genpcncfir] storm track
- Sep 5, 2006Dear Trish,
We had a couple of hundred or so houses under water
when a sewage line backed up. This neighborhood was
about a mile from me. I felt awfully sorry for those
people. One man had put an addition on his house. The
carpenters left just hours before the hurricane
struck. His entire house, addition and all, was
ruined. Most in the neighborhood suffered nearly total
or total losses.
For the rest, this entire area has an abundance of
old trees. Again we were devastated by the number of
toppled trees. In returning home from work Friday, I
had to detour because one of these trees had fallen
across the road. Residents could not return home until
the tree had been removed. There was no other route to
take, no detour.
Fortunately, there were few injuries and even fewer
