In League City we pride ourselves on knowing how to prepare for storms. For all of us that remember Hurricane Ike, we remember being without power and roads being blocked. Those of us who were effected worse may remember our homes and cars being flooded. What the large majority of us don’t remember is losing loved ones.
Hurricane Ike was roughly the same size as Katrina and caused nearly as much financial damage. What made it the most different was that it didn’t damage our loved ones. That’s because we were prepared at the City and State level. Still I wonder how many of us were prepared in our homes. When the power went out and the wind started howling and the rain started pouring, could we have prepared better?For most of us the answer is ‘yes’.
