Mother Nature’s Fury

Mother Nature’s Fury

Coastal communities will always live with the potential for disaster from mother natures fury. Hurricane Ike made landfall over Galveston, Texas in September 2008 as a Category 2 hurricane that spanned over 100 miles wide. The resulting damage from its devastating winds, storm surge and flooding equate to one of the most costliest hurricanes in U.S. history.

Powerful Storm Surge

Powerful Storm Surge

Hurricane force winds traveling over the ocean push against the surface creating a massive build up of water. As the storm makes landfall, this huge pile of water gets pushed ashore creating a powerful storm surge. Hurricane Ike’s storm surge was recorded at 15-20 feet above normal tide levels and caused massive flooding. Coastal homes and structures that were properly elevated using fortified building techniques survived with minimal damage.
