Thanks Matelock.......that's a little encouraging
But the problem is the storm surge......
My Dad's house has about 200-400 feet of pine forest between the house and the ocean which should be a fairly good windbreak.....but the water that could pour in on the surge frightens me with the house only being a few feet above sea level
For those not familiar with a storm surge, picture a massive whirlpool where the water in the middle lowers as the water on the edges rise........that's what a Hurricane does and that's what a "storm surge" means.
This hurricane scares me like no other has when it comes to my family's safety
