    Default This storm called Ian

    It is a bit surprising that I have yet to see any claims that DeSantis has failed the people, that this is his Katrina Moment.

    If more people would stand up for the truth and what is right only the insane could deny that the WOKE are diabolical abusers as we witnessed the attacks on us.

    It is beginning to look like the tracking predictions have been wrong, that it will be traveling further south than the experts have said it would.

    Predicting Hurricane Ian's track has been difficult. An expert tells us why

    Making excuses already.

    Florida isn't Puerto Rico. They actually have a robust building code (Called "Dade County code") and have made huge strides in weatherizing the state against these annual storms. That's in contrast to Puerto Rico where they apparently still use Mexican level--Second World--building code, if you can call it that. That's why Puerto Rico (run by Democrats BTW) is fucked up like a soup sandwich every time a hurricane hits the island...

    I saw the walls they were putting up around hospitals. I hope they work. They’re pretty cool and fairly easy to install.

    That was TGH. That's really something! That whole thing is just dredge and fill from the bay. "Davis Island" it's called. Matter of fact I met the guy that sold it to the government. He's a jew.

    Cool AF. That's one alright old man. There's some really old houses out there, you got your Loblolly pine ones from early and then the 30s-50s block ones on the part they vacuumed up from the bay. 30s-50s is when most were built.

    Probably the newest structure there is Derrick Jeter's house. Or new wings of TGH. All of that is elevation 4' or less with the bay right there. Cockroach Bay, that is.

    Yes, it's Cockroach Bay.

    It's interesting that you ignore the many buildings in PR that did collapse and the Tens of thousands in Florida that didn't collapse.

    Florida is a much more wealthy nation than is Puerto Rico, that has a lot to do with it, unfortunately.

    Agreed. The west coast of Florida, especially Naples and Port Charlotte, have a lot of money.

    We'll all know by Friday how well the Floridian infrastructure holds up.

    That was constructed long before most of that code was in place, and its collapse had ZERO to do with a storm or hurricane. Instead, it collapsed from a combination of lack of maintenance on the structure--the issues were known--and increased groundwater seepage largely due to the lack of maintenance.

    Even so, the building had withstood many years of hurricane season, and been through hurricanes successfully.

    A 2018 report revealed the apartment building had "major structural damage" and needed widespread repairs.
    The engineering report from Morabito Consultants claimed: "The failed waterproofing is causing major structural damage to the concrete structural slab below these areas."
    "Failure to replace the waterproofing in the near future will cause the extent of the concrete deterioration to expand exponentially," the report stated.
    The report cited gross structural flaws of Champlain Towers South that required substantial repair of the damaged slabs.
    "These were all problems that should have been dealt with quickly," Gregg Schlesinger, an attorney specializing in construction defects and a former construction project engineer, said.
    "The building speaks to us. It is telling us we have a serious problem," Schlesinger about the new documents.
    "They kicked the can down the road. The maintenance was improper. These were all red flags that needed to be addressed. They weren't."
    https://www.the-sun.com/news/3155323...%20caused%20it.

    So, it wasn't a failure of the inherent design of the building but rather shitty property management who failed to keep the building up along with stupid assed condo owners who were penny pinching and wouldn't pony up the cash to keep their property in good repair.
