Just as our miserable winter is hopefully coming to an end, now we have to focus on what might be our next peril . . . The never ending fear of a major hurricane striking the NY Metro area, especially, our home . . . Long Island! . . . not to mention the whole Northeast in general.
We at Shutter Shack pride ourselves with being one of the foremost companies to provide multiple Storm Protection Products, as well as providing expert advise concerning protecting your home. Unfortunately, we have become very complacent in regard to a massive storm similar to one the likes of "Hurricane Katrina" or "Hurricane Andrew" striking the NY/Metro area.
The last big Hurricane that hit Long Island was Gloria in 1985. Since that time there has been a ten-fold increase of construction, and development in our direct hurricane danger zone's. If a storm similar to the "Great Long Island Express" strikes our area, Gloria will be minuscule in scale compared to that 1938 storm.
Gloria came in as a minimal category 2 storm and caused over $900 million in economic loss. For you that remember, there were certain area's which didn't have power for over 2 weeks, Dune Road in the Hampton's was totally under water and some homes on the East End of Long Island washed away. Imagine all this damage, and Gloria struck at low tide! If a storm such as the '38 storm were to strike today, the damage would be similar to the horrible images we witnessed during the Katrina catastrophe. Loses in our region might top over $100billion! Everything south of Merrick Road could be under water!
