This is hurricane Harvey that just hit the Texas coast. I have been through ten hurricanes in the twenty three years I have lived in St James. I am not aware of any damage to a single house here in St James as a result of these ten hurricanes. All of the houses built here in the last thirty years have been constructed to a strict building code that anticipates possible hurricane winds and rain. We have 120 mph windows and doors. All roofs and walls are tied down to the footers and roofs need a sufficient pitch to prevent loss of shingles. Wind and hail insurance is required if you have a mortgage and a good idea anyway. I cannot say that hurricane damage will never happen here, but we are as well protected as we can be. I pray that the houses in Florida are as well built.
