WHAT PREVENTS WATER DAMAGE IN A HURRICANE?

Hurricane Sandy did more than 50 billion dollars in damage when it’s 80 mile an hour winds barreled through the north east coast in the fall of 2012. In the aftermath, more than 8 million customers lost power – some for several weeks and more than 650,000 homes were destroyed or damaged.

Roofs were blow off. Trees fell onto homes. Windows blew out. Homes were crushed by flying and falling debris. And, both water & wind intruded violently into homes.

And yet, despite the storm’s ferocity, there are many things people can do to minimize — and better protect their homes in a hurricane, as the NY Times’ “Ask The Contractor”, Michael Grosswendt explains in this clip from Episode #4 of This vs That.
