When I moved to the Gulf coast from CA I was actually excited to be in a hurricane. I had no idea the forces involved.

I came from a place here rain took the form of a light Scottish mist.

Had a manufactured home on our property in Texas.

For hurricanes, we sank concrete piles -- three on each side.

Then in advance of any major storm, we'd run fabric with metal straps.

Worked A-OK!

Run it where?

PatriotDescendant 3 points ago +3 / -0

Eye bolts.

Six submerged concrete piers.

We put flower pots on the three piers in the front yard and plywood with astroturf (12" square) on the three in the back yard where horses, dogs and people often tread.

Storm comes? Uncover the piers and eye bolts; attach the metal ends then ratchet tight the fabric. Ugly, but conveys a sense of calm during 100 mph winds. "

Just so people know this isn't typical. And by that I mean the circle of destruction is much smaller than people think. Lots of people look at the radar that shows rain over half of Florida and think "OMG everyone is dying" when in reality its mostly just the eye that causes major wind damage.

Most of the damage comes from flooding from excessive rain inland and from tidal hight changes at the coasts.

Also, it changed from a CAT 4.9 to a CAT 2 in 20 miles of going inland. People don't realize that.

3
Inquisitor_Corvus 3 points ago +3 / -0

It’s the eye that does the most damage along with the surge on barrier islands and beaches.

3
BaldEagle1337 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yeah, people just don't get it. They look at the radar and see half of Florida engulfed and assume it took out half the state.

1
Inquisitor_Corvus 1 point ago +1 / -0

A Cat V would cut a major swath. I think we have only had a handful of those in our recorded history, however. Don’t they refer to those as “the hand of God?”

Hearing from some seasoned Floridians here I suspect.

2
BaldEagle1337 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah, I'm not saying it isn't major, just that people often think it's much larger than it is. Had it gone up and hit Alabama or the panhandle it would have been much more severe given the Mexican Gulf topography. There's a small buffer zone on the Florida Gulf side that helps start to defuse hurricanes just before they make landfall. The Hurricane actually started to decrease in intensity before hitting land with is a huge advantage to the Gulf side.

All this being said a ton of people live down in Cape Coral and if you're living in a trailer and not a post 2002 house with all the hurricane codes, you likely won't have a house.

1
SpaceAgePolymer 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yep. Michael devastated part of the Panhandle, it still isn’t even close to ok, really. It’s worse for us when we get hit, but we seem to get hit less often than the peninsula. Even Sally messed up Pensacola and it was only a Cat 1. Just part of living in the best state in the USA. Would rather have hurricanes any day than snow and winter!

You obviously have no clue what you are talking about. Southwest Louisiana got hit by 2 Cat 4 Hurricanes in 2020. Whole pine forest were laid flat over 60 miles from the coast. The damage corridor was almost 100 miles wide. Most people went 4 weeks without power.

3
BaldEagle1337 3 points ago +3 / -0

Go look at the topography of the Mexican Gulf and you will quickly see why Hurricanes hitting Gulf side Florida cause much less damage to Florida than Louisiana. We have over a 100 miles of buffer that helps slow and defuse hurricanes before they hit landfall. Ian was a hair away from a CAT 5 at it's peak and slammed into Cape Corral as a CAT4 spesifically because of that.

If you look at rain radar and assume half of Florida is getting hit then you're retarded.

You're guna see non hurricane houses or pre 2002 code houses get distroyed about 20 miles in. It was considered a tropical storm after about 50 miles.

The vast majority of people affected are going to be from flooding and coastal surge.

Kinda know what I'm talking about. Gulf side Florida resident here...

I'm usually only ever concerned with getting hit by the eye of a hurricane or from tornados that form because of them. The 60-90mph wind isn't that big of a deal usually.

I was in Orlando in the late 90s for the tornadoes. We had like 5 or 6 bad ones the same night all over town. I concur with what you are saying. Although I was on the east coast of FL for the last 10 years.

To be honest here, this comparison is way off. Living in an area that’s always hit by hurricanes every year and getting hit by a hurricane is the complete opposite of living in a “safe” neighborhood” and getting murdered in your home. The examples literally couldn’t be more opposite. Not defending this guy, but he’s not wrong. These people continue to live in places where this always happens. Many of them then use the insurance money when their house is destroyed to build another house in the same place. At a certain point, I stop feeling bad for people too that go through this, because they knew it was going to happen.

They’re not sad they’re nature and you can prepare for them and also not choose to be an idiot and live in a trailer home in one of the most high risk areas.

Haven't been to sleep, 630am now, only lost a screen on my porch so far but but it's just so damn loud between the rain on the roof, the wind in the trees and the frogs singing. Pepe is watching over us.

2
Survey_girl 2 points ago +2 / -0

N FL pede checking in... we have a couple downed trees, one took out the power line on the easement and one took out our fence. Power is back on now, but it is still very windy, 40-50mph. We have actually not gotten any rain, we were expecting 6-10 inches.

That cold front came down from Canada (because of hurricane Fiona) and got to us before Ian, so since yesterday we are in the 60s... lots of wind but no rain. Looks like 20 miles southeast of us has been getting rain since yesterday morning

Our fall garden is pretty much gone. Wind has knocked everything over and the soil is so dry it is just blowing away... we didn't water ahead of time because we were expecting so much rain.

It’s a nicer trailer park but it’s a trailer park. Hardly any of them build and added on to in a way that can handle those winds. These guys know this and camp out there to monetize on it. Pretty fucked up if you think about it.

7
2scoops2genders 7 points ago +8 / -1

Why is it fucked up? They’re documenting the effects of storm to educate people on maybe not making stupid decisions like purchasing and living in trailer parks in hurricane alley. Idk why Florida even allows these structures to be built down there. I feel bad for all the crews that are going to have to clean up this mess and anyone that’s property was damaged because of these shifty structures. Trust me…most of my family lives in these areas and feels the same way.

2
AlphaOmaga 2 points ago +2 / -0

Going back to why do they even allow that kind of construction… look at all the extra shit in the wind now.

To the storm chasers parked in a trailer park looking for damage, if it’s not monetized, I agree. Educational purposes. All good. Dunno. Even if it’s monetized, if they need to pay for the equipment for educational purposes or whatever. Guess I don’t know their motives. I’m not in their head so I dunno.

It might be opportunistic but what makes that bad?

They didn't purchase the shitty prefabricated homes and stick them in the literal worse possible location.

The PEOPLE who OWN those vacation homes did.

Wtf are you applying morality or ethics to this situation for?

Its one of the only times you don't have to try and seize the moral high ground. It was an act of nature.

Nothing could stop it. Nothing could prevent those homes from being torn apart.

It doesn't even make sense to be butthurt about a storm chaser. Theyre documenting reality.

I suppose you're going to get mad at the hurricane next and try to shame it right?

Haha, if you live in a trailer home in a hurricane prone area, you know the risks. These guys want to video some destruction, and know right where to go.

The fucked up thing, honestly, is building a trailer home in a hurricane prone area, knowing that you'll be contributing to the debris, which is what actually hurts people.

AlphaOmaga 1 point ago +1 / -0

Well, I at least agree with it being stupid and irresponsible because of all the shit those trailers end up adding to strong winds. Most of the time people are killed by the wind, they get killed by the shit in the wind. Like 8x8 aluminum plates flying off shitty glorified trailers.

Great hurricane advice you got there; “don’t be poor”

1
Kraotic 1 point ago +1 / -0

Trailers are just about the worst investment a poor person could ever make. They are also rarely the only place a poor person could live. Choosing to both live in a trailer and live in an area prone to hurricanes is just a really horrible idea (believe it or not if you're poor it's easy as hell to move because you don't have much stuff, you just like... go somewhere else, I've done it myself).

My brother (I'm not exactly from a rich family) ended up paying something like $100,000 for his trailer over the lifetime of the loan. Not exactly affordable if you consider something that is virtually worthless by the time you're done with it.

I rented from him for a while, in somewhat of an upscale trailer park. Drugs and cigarettes all around. I've been through a ton of hurricanes. I've been pretty damn poor buddy, doesn't mean you have to make stupid fucking choices...

They always ahow trailers and modular homes being destroyed by hurricanes. Pan the camera around tobone of the built house mssing a few shingles and maybe a downed gutter. Also most damage is caused my flooding near the coastline. You will see downed trees because the ground is saturated and the fall over. Im on the coast in florida and it looks bad because trees are dpwn and the debris from the trees accumulates and blocks roads. Ppint beng that we had high wind gusts here that csuse havok on trees and trailers. Most built houses may get flood damage and minor problems. He news is alays filming ight on the coast by the ocean because it i windy and the palms are going apeshit in the wind. It looks more Dramatic then the reality. If the would pan the camera behind them you will see a normal scene with some tree debris and palm fronds on the ground
