Default Wilma

We lost all our windows(2nd floor condo) southern exposure and a corner condo...we live in Pompano. Had no electric for ten days

Lost the second bedroom door as it buckled out

Lost interior items such as TV and ceiling fans,etc

We waited for 8 months for windows...and then we just got the patio window, last month!!!

We had insurance and we did collect some and then they went under..

I have been in Florida 30+ years...had thought I had been through a cane and I was wrong and this was supposedly a Cat 1.

I live in Fort Lauderdale in a home built in 1965 (have hurricane shutters and a reinforced garage door). We had about a dozen broken roof tiles (no leakage) and a downed fence in Wilma, plus heavy tree damage. Power was out for two weeks, but many homes less than a mile away (near Imperial Point Hospital, a priority location) were back up in four days.

No damage from the other hurricanes of '04 and '05, but we lost power for two days after Frances and three days after Katrina.

No problems with looting anywhere near us. The county instituted a curfew after Wilma and was pretty strict about enforcing it.

Vero Beach for Hurricane Wilma... no damage. Two baby oaks turned over.

Our house was not yet built in 2004 for Frances/Jeanne, however our subdivision did have several homes occupied. The only damage was a few of the roofing tiles got moved around. I was told by our realtor that the difference between older neighborhoods and newly built up-to-code neighborhoods was night and day after the back-to-back hurricanes.
