When Hurricane Matthew blew through Florida last Sept 30 to Oct 1 October, Florida residents were concerned with safety, and rightly so. This hurricane topped at Category 5 winds of 160 miles an hour. By the time it made landfall in South Carolina, on October 8th, it is was “just” a Category 1 storm bust still caused massive damage. Matthew skirted Florida’s Atlantic Space Coast, but anyone who has witnessed tropical storms or hurricanes can tell you that the winds extended many miles from the eye and can cause substantial damage, especially when combined with saturated ground. Near the coast, the strong winds and storm surge caused extensive damage. All along the Space Coast, as well as inland, the torrential rains saturated the ground, and the winds brought down many trees.
According to the Sun-Sentinel reported on October 12th, that there 39,302 insurance claims as a result of Hurricane Matthew. A few days after the storm, Florida Today reported that there were 10 homes damaged and 1,390 damaged structures damaged by the storm. Struggling to function during a power outage of the scale wrought by this storm, meant that claims likely continued to come in, but these are the initial numbers reported.
Storm Clean Up
With the storm blowing up the coast, people quickly busied themselves with the cleanup efforts. Yard debris, flooded lower levels of homes and businesses all had to be cleaned out. With people’s homes destroyed and lives lost, damage to swimming pool enclosures was rightly put off for a later date. Well, it is now January, and the clean up is all but done.
