Hurricane Irma tore through the United States from the 30thof August to the 3rdof September, 2017. In its wake, it left a pile of devastation and destruction, and a lot of people were dispersed and rendered temporarily homes as a result.
To wit, we take a look at how the harsh effects of this hurricane affected homes and residential properties in both Fort Myers and Cape Coral.
Homes in Cape Coral were majority affected as debris and mangled tees were smashed into their homes. These materials caused a lot of obstruction of damages, and the result was a lot of restricted movement (especially for cars and other automobiles).
However, it is worth noting that homes-in themselves- were partially spared from the general effects of this hurricane. Most of the complaints and emergency calls that were received by restoration and renovation services had to deal more with removing external elements from a few of their parts (for example, a nearby tree having smashed into security and entrance posts).
Cape Coral had more fatal complaints from roads, as the hurricane caused a massive flooding that swept roads, leading to the destruction of cars, electricity posts, etc. This means that only heavy duty trucks, SUV, and other off road vehicles were able to ply roads for the duration of the hurricane.
In general, residential properties in Cape Coral were left majorly unaffected, as the impact of the hurricane was felt majorly by stray trees, vehicles in driveway, and the central transportation system (roads, railways, etc.)
On Fort Myers on the other hand, the hurricane had more pronounced effects on residential areas and vegetation centers. However, in spite of these effects, water damage restoration in Fort Myers was in full effect, and a lot of roadways were cleared in due time. A lot of businesses also complained about the effects of the hurricane, as it swept through their signage boards leading many customers and passersby to speculate that they had gone out of business. Most of the homes that were affected had their roofs torn off, and this caused the major displacement of a lot of people.
In the short time that hurricane Irma terrorized these areas, hundreds of homes and properties were destroyed. However, the months following that have also seen extremely high levels of improvement, as restoration efforts in Fort Myers have been able to bring these properties back to form.
