Let’s learn from our Past Hurricanes
Yorkers railed Sunday against a utility that has lagged behind others in restoring power two weeks after the superstorm that socked the region, criticizing its slow pace as well as a dearth of information. At least 150,000 people in New York and New Jersey remained without power Sunday, including tens of thousands of homes and businesses that were too damaged to receive power at all. The lack of power restoration for a relative few in the densely populated region at the heart of the storm reinforced Sandy’s fractured effect on the area: tragic and vicious to some, merely a nuisance to others.
Most of Sandy’s damage was brought on by the “storm surge.” Our blog, Beware the Storm Surge! is all about what a storm surge is and how it behaves. Here in Southeast Texas we can relate to their frustration. In 2005 Hurricane Katrina ransacked the gulf, followed closely by Hurricane Rita. A reprieve later, it was in 2008 that Hurricane Ike hit landfall and became to most costly hurricane to have attacked Texas. And it was just months ago when we had to prepare ourselves for Hurricane Isaac. Texan Insurance is here to help you beware hurricane season.
