It Looks Like a 'War Zone': The Most Devastating Pictures from Hurricane Irma Destruction in the Florida Keys

https://www.yahoo.com/news/looks-apos-war-zone-apos-121503203.html

Either this was a lazy reporter or Irma was nothing. All I see is minor damage and the usual mobile home park being wiped out. Even the homes on the water look to be in good shape. In the photo with the sailboats washed ashore, the houses in the background look untouched.

I know some areas were hit hard but this cant possibly be "the most devastating pictures from hurricane Irma."

He didn't claim it "looks good", just not the devastion that they predicted or were trying to portray in these pics.

Aren't hurricanes annual in these areas? What makes one year more devastating than the other. Are the effects of global climate change measured in $$, life lost, or physical damage

Ive seen rave parties cause more damage to a house.

For a hurricane this is minor damage. Im stunned that so many mobile home survived in that mobile home park on the coast.

looks to me like the roofs are stripped off on all of the houses on the coast. Some completely, some partially.
Only the blue house looks unscathed.

The bottom floor of those houses is random flooded wreckage. The top floor of those houses are exposed to the sky. If someone weathered the storm in one of those houses, it was surely a wild ride. Crap went flying.

I wouldn't want to have to do the insurance claim. Some of the wreckage is wind, some is water. The house does not need complete reconstruction. But it looks like at least of the house will have to be stripped to the bones and redone.

What are you expecting? Damage like in St Martin? Those were shanties. Florida has building codes.

trailers? yeah whatever. those always suck. the only way to protect a trailer is if a few other trailers happen to pile on top of yours and protect it.

Its the fake story that Im complaining about. We know damn well a powerful hurricane hit but the reporter is using click bait tactics that the press complains about and using buzz words like "most devastating pictures." Those photos are nothing compared to what happened on other parts of the islands.

Unprecedented & Devastating I dont think they know what these words mean.

"Florida has building codes"


dunno:

Doesn't look like the building codes were sufficient to protect against a hurricane...why even have them?

Looks like they need to have better building codes for mobiles...

Maybe a carbon tax would allow for more $$ to be spent on building practises to protect against these 500 year storms. :lol:

If government is so worried about rising sea levels and climate change, why do they even issue building permits for those areas which will be most affected? hmm:

Not from a hurricane but this is devastation. Now Im sure if that reporter got off his ass and looked around more he would have found some real devastation too.

A carbon tax would have prevented this...I'm surprised these natural disasters didn't end with the Barry Presidency.

And homelessness too...

When Sandy hit NJ the authorities just had everyone push any and all debris to the road where it was eventually all picked up. I remember big front-end loaders just scooping and bringing it to the end of the roadways where it was being loaded into dumpsters and trucked out. Mostly wood from collapsed garages & decks, aluminum sheds and garage doors, etc.... Of course some of what used to be houses too.

My daughter spent the day with a large group of kids sifting through a swampy tall grass area looking for personal effects that got washed around the area. They came back with loads of photos, cds, jewelry, etc.... It all went to a lost and found location. Horrible.
