Storm Protection

In 2004, four major hurricanes hit Florida. This devastating and relentless display of destruction brought home the reality that beachfront property is extremely vulnerable and is no match for the forces of nature.

The most common damage resulting from these inevitable events is soil erosion and storm surge. Storm surge is the natural force created when high winds and decreased atmospheric pressure cause water to push against the shore. The advancing surge combines with the normal tides and wind-driven waves, creating the hurricane storm tide.
