    notice that in phase 5, the tall tree falls, even though it is house deep in water...


    perhaps im horribly wrong, but wouldnt the water help support it, or maybe it would go with the wind and rip it out of the ground....

    The tree fell because the water loosens the soil.

    And I live in Fl too, though in Tampa we luckily havent been directly hit by a strong storm. And someone asked what u do when a cat. 5 comes...you get as far away as possible.

    The hurricane is only that strong around the eye, getting hit by a catagory 3-4 isn`t that bad around everywhere else (I live in Miami, we got hit by 3 hurricanes last year, the only property damage we had was a rotted out tree falling and most of our fence during the 3rd one) The worst part about it is losing electricity for a week and living in 70-90 degree weather...

    This information cannot be correct. My house was right in the middle of hurricane Charley and none of that happened to my house nor to those stupid motorhomes down the street. The motorhomes were a bit beat up but not destroyed and my house didn`t suffer any damage.

    kirbey91,

    Where exactly do you live?

    I live in Orlando and by the time Charley got to us he had weakened significantly. Not to mention the fact that he passed over us very very quickly. Yet both the trees in our front yard came down (one on top of my car). We (as well as our neighbors) lost a lot of roof tiles.

    My uncle lives in Ft. Myers (which isn`t far from Punta Gorda, which is where he came to shore) and they lost power for over two weeks.

    Now I`m not saying that this was anywhere as intense as Andrew or Camille, but Charley was the wake-up call that really showed the weaknesses here in Florida and the next 6 weren`t as bad (just really annoying when our power went out before Jeanne even got to us).

    I don`t think that`s too acurate. I lived in Florida for most of my life and went through hurrican Ivan, a cat. 3. One tree fell down and some shingles came off the roof but nothing more and we lived in a moble home. Some older homes got messed up but most houses were ok. And we were in badly hit part, too.

    IN a Cat 5 if you were near the shore...yes the ocean could cover it, it only takes a storm surge of 20 feet. And i say if you stay in your home, by your own choice, in the path of a hurricane and something happens you have only yourself to blame.

    I really thought Katrina was a Cat 5 when she came ashore, I didn`t realize she`d weakened so much...I can`t imagine N.O. getting hit by an actual Cat 5. I worked with the Red Cross last year in Louisiana and it was CRAZY when all the evacuees showed up overnight...then Rita hit and all our shelters lost power so the evacuees from Katrina had to evacuate AGAIN...I felt awful for those people.
