Hurricane Bleg

So, what do you do if your roof comes off during a hurricane?

Presumably you can’t go anywhere, because there’s a hurricane out there.  So do you hide under the table? Go sit in the car in the garage? Hide in a closet with louver doors?

Just asking for a friend.

(Couldn’t find a photo I liked of roof damage, so I went with this Wikimedia picture from the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900.)

    If you’re stuck in a motel in some damn town a few hundred miles away when the roof of your home blows off…

    • I think it’s too late for that. Also, given the uncertainties about the path, there’s about as much chance of putting oneself into harms way as of getting out of it. Might as well hunker here, where supposedly the house can wistand a cat 4 thanks to the renovations.

    Smallest room in the house with no windows would be my best guess. That’s what I remember people saying they did during Andrew. We stayed at my grandmother’s house in Westchester for that one, and were lucky to have relatively little damage there (no power for about a week though). Our own house in the South Gables, on the other hand, was a wreck. Good luck.
