Sandy Canard braved the winds of Hurricane Irma inside her manufactured home in a manufactured home community in Melbourne, FL.
“Very scary,” she said of her experience Sunday night. “My whole house kept shaking all night. But, thank the Lord, we made it,” per Florida Today.
The water rose quickly, coming into her driveway, she said.
“But it receded really fast,” Canard said.
The woman credited recent drainage improvements along John Rhodes Boulevard. She felt that kept the flooding from being worse.
Stories are pouring into news rooms in Florida and nationally with stories of significant damage, destruction, courage, and survival.
As the skies clear, and water recedes, damage assessments will begin.
As was reported yesterday evening, insurers believe that they dodged a bullet.
While damage is extensive, had the storm track hit the east coast in Florida vs. shifting towards the west, the losses would have been greater. To learn more, click here. ## (News.)
