I'm sure it will be fine. We aren't looking at a catastrophic event here.

I agree with SirCane. You might have some minor problems if your new siding is that plastic/vinyl stuff. It doesn't take much to pull that off of a structure. Did yall board up?

SirCane -- Where yat in P'cola? My dad lived on the island, a block off of the beach during all four of the storms you have listed in your sig. His house survived the first three storms with little or no damage. Dennis LEVELED it, however. The difference was that for the first three storms there was a large cinderblock beachouse between the beach and his home. Ivan DESTROYED the cinderblock structure and it was replaced with a blowout. Well, Dennis blew it out and the upper, non-blowout part of the structure took out my dad's house. He has now moved across the sound...

attyeddy Wrote:Several things wrong here. We were about 120 miles from the east wall of Rita. During Rita we had sustained winds in excess of 50, frequent gusts to 90.

During Katrina, we had LESS wind. Sustained MAYBE 40 with gusts around 70 to 80. And we were CLOSER. Difference was we were on the WEST side of Katrina. The ONLY reason we lost power at all was because a freaking oak tree fell on a neighbor's house. Outside of my subdivision, power was out only until a few hours after the storm cleared.

Those were HUGE storms. Why should someone hardly closer than you were to Katrina crap themselves over this wimp?

Come on now, I know better than that, Baton Rouge had abosutely no where close to wind gusts of 90 mph, otherwise you would had been under power outage for days after Rita. Lafayette, 50 miles closer to Rita and a whole lot closer to the coast than BR is, barely had wind gusts to 80.
I guarantee you that the Carolinas' effect from Ernesto will be a whole lot worst than a typical thunderstorm, as you are trying to put it.

Wow!, check the conditions on the buoy just ESE of Ernesto, wave heights up to 22 ft, check out the pressure.
