Floridians Eye Hurricane Forecast At WIND Conference

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

Gulf Coast homeowners and businesses eagerly await reports as professionals related to the windstorm insurance industry and storm damage restoration assemble from across the world in Orlando, Florida this week for WIND’s Annual Conference. In the wake of massive flood and wind damage from superstorms of recent years, including Katrina, Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jean and others, alarms have been going off, and property insurance rates have gone through the roof … even if insurance is still available for such events as sinkhole and flood! These topics are front-and-center at WIND.

Since 1995, the size of storms in the Gulf has increased 35%. Having been “bulls-eye” at one point in the progression of four successive, major Florida hurricanes in a row in the mid-2000′s, the author and her North-Central Florida neighbors have experienced the fears and insurance rate hikes, with prayers for those whose homes were devastated or loved ones lost. Their eyes are now turned toward the WIND conference prognostications, insights and exhibitors.

Of local Florida interest at the conference, also, are solutions for anticipated future storm effects, the latest technologies for things such as foundation underpinning or grouting for Florida?s weak soil conditions and sinkhole remediation as presented by exhibitor, Foundation Services of Central Florida, wind and water damage repair by Florida Source Construction, and properly constructed and reinforced sea walls, a specialty of Stable Soils of Florida.

Windstorms are a serious matter, deadly serious. North America’s extreme weather disasters have increased 500% over the past three decades, according to the world?s largest reinsurance company, Munich Re. Further, strategic business futurist, Joyce Gioia, predicts continuing major changes in violent wind and rainstorms, with rising storm surges and flooding, adding: “Flooding is responsible for 36% of the loss of life from weather-related events.”

Most recently, massive Hurricane Sandy ravaged hundreds of miles from the Gulf Coast all the way up the Eastern Seaboard. This added to the hurricane devastations of 2004-2005 to force sweeping changes in insurance laws, court proceedings and claims processing concerning sinkhole, inland flooding, storm surge and wind damage, as well as new attention focused on advances in construction technologies, restoration techniques, weak soil erosion and sinkhole risk, properly designed sea walls and more.

That?s why this year’s WIND conference is highly focused on these issues, including special sessions on Florida developments, with top professionals from all different disciplines and points of view to discuss trends, research, their insights, claims processing software and predictive tools, as well as reparations and construction for storm aftermath.

Quite timely, WIND chose noted hurricane season forecaster, Dr. William Gray, for Wednesday’s Keynote Speech: “Past and Likely Future Variations in Hurricane Wind Damage.” After discussing the unusual hurricane season of 2012 (including Sandy!) and outlook for 2013, Dr. Gray shared insights into the surprisingly large multi-decadal cycles in US landfalling major hurricane activity.

His conclusion? The US has been unusually fortunate in recent years since 1995 (except 2004-2005 and Sandy) in avoiding major hurricane wind and flood damage, but should not expect this luck to continue. His research further indicates that approximately 80-85% of tropical cyclone related damage (normalized for population and wealth) is due to major hurricanes. Also, it is unlikely that there is a significant impact of rising levels of CO2 on tropical cyclone activity.

Major Texas Railcar Repair and Maintenance Facility Rebuilt and Dedicated Following Destruction by Hurricane Rita in 2005

Orange, TX (PRWEB) October 20, 2006

Rescar’s major railcar repair, maintenance and cleaning facilities suffered a direct hit in the dark early morning of September 24, 2005 as Hurricane Rita passed over the company’s 63 acre facility at Orange, Texas. Cleaning facilities were destroyed and everything else was heavily damaged. On Wednesday, October 18, 2006 Rescar gathered its employees, customers and local community members to dedicate the completely redesigned and rebuilt facility-now a model for other Rescar shops throughout North America.

During the past three years, Rescar has totally revamped its railcar process so that the average time railcars spend in its facilities has dropped from the industry-average 70-75 days down to less than 40 days, while quality and safety have improved throughout the company.

“Once we accounted for our employees and started to get over the shock of the unprecedented damage caused by Rita, we asked ourselves if we wanted to simply repair the damage, or if we wanted to make this another step along our path to providing Maximum Velocity for our customers,” Joe Schieszler, Jr., Rescar President and CEO, told guests at Wednesday’s dedication ceremony. “We knew what needed to be done to make Orange our flagship facility, so we decided this was our opportunity to do just that. Everyone at Orange suffered more than the damage that was done to our shops, and I’m extremely proud that our team here pulled together to do the hard work that resulted in today’s virtually new facility. It will better serve our customers, our employees and the community of Orange.

“Today’s event is proof of what we knew when we faced the destruction one year ago. We were down, but we were not out.”

The Culmination of Rescar’s Experience

The Orange facility stands as the culmination of all the lessons Rescar has learned in its nearly four-decade history. The rebuilt facilities were designed to facilitate the most up-to-date Rescar processes. “For our customers–who rely on us to help them achieve the highest possible utilization of their valuable railcar fleets–we expect the changes put in place at Orange will move us toward our goal of further reducing average time in shop to just 24 days,” Schieszler said.

This dramatic increase in the velocity of Rescar’s process will strengthen its industry leadership, which will attract more work to the Orange facility and its employees. The facility currently handles approximately 2,700 cars annually.

“What we have built at Orange,” says Schieszler, “is a much nicer place to work. We have increased the amount of space and light at many work areas. Rebuilt parts storage areas are much better organized. Orange is a reflection of our commitment to improved capabilities and safety. Plus it makes our community an even better place to work and live,” he says.

The next step in the reinvention of Rescar will be to bring the six other major company shops up to standards set by Orange. Though the layout and physical characteristics of each of these shops is unique, they will all be identical in process, work flow and customer information when their refurbishments are finished.

A Full-Service Facility

The full-service facility at Orange is located on 63 acres, has 8.6 miles of track that can accommodate 400-plus cars and has approximately 200,000 square feet under roof with room for up to 90 cars. Located in the heart of the petroleum, petrochemical and chemical refining industry in Texas and Louisiana near Beaumont, Texas, Orange provides a comprehensive menu of services including:

Freight Cars

Plant Services

General repair


Wreck repairs


Exterior painting

Coating applications

Covered hopper cleaning

Wheel replacements

Air brake cleaning

Roller bearing replacement

AAR bill preparation

Tank Cars

AAR Shop Certification to repair, alter and convert tank car tanks (ref. AAR spec for tank cars)

Whitehall’s New Property Management Division Fields Calls as Hurricane Forecasters Predict Busy 2010 Hurricane Season.

Vero Beach, FL (Vocus) April 8, 2010

The phones are ringing in Whitehall’s new property management division. With recent predictions of a busy 2010 hurricane season, Treasure Coast residents are preparing to be prepared. Whitehall, an affiliate of Croom Construction Company, recently expanded their legacy business to include professional property management.

“With the recent updates that El Nino is weakening and that 2010 is predicted to be a busy hurricane system, we are fielding calls from both existing and new customers,” said Michael Atwood, vice president of Whitehall’s Property Management division. “As many seasonal residents prepare to vacate for the summer, they want that peace of mind knowing that a reputable and qualified company is watching over their home while they are away.”

Offering professional property management is a natural expansion of Whitehall’s stellar customer service. And it was created by customer request. “Several of our long-time customers came to us and asked us about offering a property management service,” said Bob Tutton, Whitehall’s General Manager. “We have earned their trust over the years with our preventative maintenance and detection services, and they didn’t want to have to find yet another company to manage their home management needs.”

Whitehall’s long-standing reputation on the Treasure Coast is well known to both island and mainland residents. Many use Whitehall for their preventative home maintenance system, which they pioneered more than 11 years ago. It’s a 70- point check detection system that takes a proactive approach to preserving seaside homes. They create a custom log that details every feature of their client’s house or condo. Roof leaks, mold and mildew, structural deficiencies – they virtually cease to exist in homes that are covered by the Whitehall Preventative Maintenance and Detection Service because items are detected and addressed before they become chronic issues. Whitehall also has a home repair division that is backed by Croom Construction’s 30 years of experience in this community. With the addition of the property management division, Treasure Coast residents, both seasonal and year-round, can now have one point of contact for all of their home management needs. It’s the ‘one call does it all’ approach to home management.

Professional property management is comprised of a menu of services. Services like on-call 24/7 for repair emergencies and storm response. Home monitoring for seasonal residents. Mail forwarding. Bill Paying. Airport transportation. Pest Control. Boat Care. Pet sitting. Pressure cleaning. Seasonal closing and opening of homes. Supervision of third-party services such as pool maintenance, landscapers and housekeepers. The list and services are comprehensive.

Combine professional property management with Whitehall’s preventative maintenance and repair services, and homeowners’ worries are now virtually eliminated. Add to that Whitehall’s affiliation with Croom Construction’s 30-year reputation in the neighborhood, and peace of mind is a given.

Fabric Hurricane Protection Panels Shield Against Debris and Window Damage

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 24, 2006

The time for harsh winds, heavy rains and hurricanes are coming around the corner, running from June through November. Preparing for the season with dependable hurricane protection can help protect you against the storm.

Specializing in protection for windows and panels against hurricanes, Hurricane Protection Specialists carry a highly effective lightweight fabric alternative to steel or aluminum panels to protect against hurricane damage.

The Hurricane Protection Specialists want to make sure everyone is prepared and safely equipped with the right materials for their home by using hurricane window protection storm panels and storm shutters. These panels and shutters are great alternatives to plywood, and weigh less than aluminum panels. The panels and shutters are able to hold against pressure/vacuum that can lift a roof right off a home. They offer protection against this even when the window is damaged.

When tested, these Hurricane Storm Panels are strong enough to endure 15 consecutive hits with a 2×4, having a weight of 9 pounds! (Visit the website hurricane protectionspecialists.com to see a demonstration video). The hurricane storm panels protect from driving rain and permit diffused light. These hurricane protection storm panels are light weight and offer ease of application and storage. The panels offer a clear view of the outside by having the ability to be partially folded up or over, and be re-secured later.

Hurricane Protection Specialists is also introducing their new revolutionary product, Pull-Down Storm Shutters. These shutters are perfect for second story buildings, covering windows and doors against wind, rain, and storm-driven projectiles. Also, these shutters can be opened and closed from inside the room. The hurricane protection storm shutters are mildew and UV resistant and translucent enough to be used as a sunshade. These shutters require no tools, lifting, and no assembly and are very cost-effective.

Hurricane Protection Specialists are now offering a free structure estimate for those living in a thirty mile radius of Union Park, Florida.

Mother Daughter Give-Up Dream Home to Comfort Nightmares of Hurricane Homeless

Bridgewater, NJ (PRWEB) February 20, 2006

For more than a decade, Joyce Steinert and daughter Kerin Martucci have enjoyed the seclusion and tranquility of their 42 forested acres along the historic Brandywine River in Chadds Ford, PA. There, lush green trees, fresh air and abundant wildlife have made that property their “little piece of heaven.”

But that was before all hell broke loose in New Orleans and the surrounding gulf coast in September of 2005. That was before hurricane Katrina roared ashore taking the lives of hundreds and the homes of thousands more.

The mother and daughter always dreamed of building a home-sweat-home on the Brandywine property and living happily-ever-after, but Katrina woke them.

“We were horrified”, Joyce Steinert said in a care center conference here today. “We saw it on TV — it was terrible what those people went through. When you see a poor pregnant women balancing on a roof-top waiting to be rescued from a flood and you realize that women and all of those other people have not just lost their homes and their belongings they have lost jobs, health insurance, everything — some even lost family in that water — that gets your attention.”

Mother and daughter know the sorrow of loss having survived two house fires during their family’s history. “I don’t have one picture from my childhood,” says Kerin.

Joyce’s pain runs even deeper having lost a sister to a drowning in 1964.

“The hurricane when it first happened was bad enough, but now to see what has gone on since is disgraceful, Steinert continued. “Our government can’t even coordinate proper relief efforts? Those poor people are at the mercy of the agencies that are supposed to help them and all that’s getting done is a lot of ball dropping and finger pointing. All we’re saying is, this is still an awful situation for those people down there and everybody, you and me and everybody, needs to do whatever we can to help.”

Asked if they were aware of the thousands of mobile homes FEMA brought in for temporary housing of the displaced, Martucci said, “that’s just it. Those trailers are sitting empty in some muddy staging area tangled-up in red tape. They’re not getting to the people they’re supposed to be helping,” she added.

The red tape Martucci refers to is a federal law that prohibits mobile homes from being placed in a flood plain. The law, in essence, has blocked those house trailers from being placed where the families in need are located.

That irony was not lost on Steinert. “That’s what I mean, and people are getting kicked out of hotel rooms now, too? Something has to be done and fast. We want to sell our land and give a million dollars of it to them – to an organization that won’t get caught up in all the red tape and actually be able to help those families.”

A spokesperson for the mother and daughter, Nick Petti reminded those on hand, “this could be a major public relations boon for a corporation who gets involved. The Today Show and Katie Couric, among others, are watching this story and have already invited the ladies on the show along with the new buyer of the property.”

“What is hoped for here is that a corporation steps forward, purchases the land for 2 million with half going to the correct Katrina relief organization — and then donate the 42 acres to the town of Chadds Ford for a public park that could bear the company’s name and be dedicated to the memory of the Katrina victims,” Petti said.

“That’s an exclusive neighborhood, he continued, [there are] multi million dollar estates of wealthy heirs, renowned doctors, top CEO’s and a significant number of historic landmarks. The property can be split into 5 building lots worth close to half a million each but nobody in Chadds Ford wants to see that happen. Nor do Joyce and Kerin. They’d rather preserve the quiet beauty and historic integrity of the area.”

Steinert credits Harry Connick Jr. for planting the seed that they would have to help, but says, “it was my daughter who came up with the idea to sell the property.”

Kerin Martucci works for QVC. One night soon after the disaster, while in the middle of a Katrina fund raiser initiated by the network, (where they agreed to match customer donations) Martucci was taken by the idea of giving up the land.

“She called excited and said, ‘Mom, we’ve enjoyed our property for a long time. Let’s do something really meaningful with it now. Let’s sell it and give half of the money to these poor people.’ I thought that was a great idea and said yes, let’s do it!” Steinert recalls.

Joyce Steinert told ABC Action News Philadelphia, she hopes her family’s pledge spurs others to donate any way they can, saying, “I think timing in life is everything. And now is definitely the time.”

Mother and daughter have already appeared on the Today Show in September of ‘05 to make their plea to a nation, but no one stepped forward. Katie Couric wants them back as soon as someone does.

IBHS Stresses Importance of Preparation as 2011 Hurricane Season Approaches

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 10, 2011

With the June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season rapidly approaching, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) strongly encourages home and business owners to takes steps now to protect their property.

Forecasters predict an active 2011 hurricane season, including the likelihood that storms will make landfall in the U.S. Meteorologists estimate there will be 15 to 16 named storms, with eight to nine hurricanes developing.

Years of field research in the aftermath of destructive storms and high-wind testing at IBHS’ world-class, multi-peril research center in South Carolina have spotlighted the most hurricane-damage prone areas of a building, including the roof, windows, gable ends, and doors.

“In both our post-disaster investigations and laboratory work, we have seen first-hand that there are proven techniques to prevent damage from hurricanes,” said Julie Rochman, IBHS president and CEO. “There is no great mystery surrounding how to better equip residential and commercial structures for an active hurricane season. However, individuals and community leaders have to make this a priority and have the resources to take action. Recognizing that both time and financial resources are in short supply for home and business owners this year, we have packaged our best engineering advice into digestible bits, so that it is easier to take some protective measures.”

To that end, IBHS’ web site – DisasterSafety.org – offers a self-assessment checklist that property owners can use to determine which specific areas on their buildings require attention, as well as “how-to” information for specific projects. Links to this information can be found here:

How to Reduce Risks from a Hurricane

How to Reduce Risks from High Winds

IBHS also has information about the importance of building codes, including a brief paper examining whether states hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are better prepared now.

A total of 19 named storms formed in the Atlantic during 2010 – equaling 1995 and 1887 as the third highest number on record. Twelve of these named storms became hurricanes, with five reaching major hurricane status of Category 3 or higher.

“Last year, forecasts for a busy season were correct; fortunately, however, no hurricanes made landfall in the U.S. in 2010,” noted Rochman. “2011 has all the markings of another very active season. We cannot simply count on good luck again this year to protect the people, property and communities standing in harm’s way along the vulnerable Gulf and Atlantic Coasts. Now is the time to harden homes and businesses against hurricane-force winds, wind-driven water and storm surge. These projects should be completed while the sun is still shining and damaging winds have yet to blow.”

As Hurricane Risk Grows, Florida Lawyer Encourages Homeowners To Study Insurance Policies

Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) July 15, 2011

Although the Florida hurricane season won?t peak until later this summer and in the fall, a National Hurricane Center specialist told the Orlando Sentinel this week that July can still bring its share of intense storms.

That?s why it?s important for South Florida residents to take the time now to review their homeowner?s insurance policies ? specifically provisions dealing with catastrophic events such as hurricanes, tropical storms, sinkholes, wind damage and water intrusion, South Florida lawyer David Weiss says.

Weiss, an experienced Florida first-party claims attorney with the law firm of Gordon & Doner, P.A., says the failure to understand and follow the policy?s terms and conditions could lead to a reduced or denied recovery of a catastrophic event claim.

?Our law firm knows what insurance companies require from their policyholders in most claims, and we can help a homeowner make sure they are complying with their policy?s requirements,? Weiss says. ?We want homeowners to get every dollar they are entitled to get in their claim.?

In the past, countless tropical storms have impacted the state during the month of July, including Tropical Storm Bonnie a year ago.

Should a catastrophic weather event strike South Florida, causing damage to homes and personal property, Weiss advises homeowner?s insurance policyholders to:

Reroof America Contractors Offers Consumer Advice On Hurricane Readiness, Safety and Repairs

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) August 26, 2011

If the names Hurricane Ike, Rita, Katrina, Charlie, Frances, Ivan, Isabel mean anything to you, then you know that these were some of the most devastating hurricanes over the past 30 years. The other thing that these hurricanes have in common is that Reroof America assisted with disaster relief and damage repairs. In fact, many of Reroof America?s 60,000 plus roofs completed have been in hurricane prone areas, so suffice it to say? Reroof America has learned a thing or two about hurricanes over the years.

For starters, here are some elementary hurricane actions that may help keep you safe:

Have a plan ? If you live in a coastal state you should know how vulnerable your family and your home is to hurricanes or hurricane force winds. Check to make sure you know where evacuation routes if they are present in your area.

Have a supply kit ? Once a hurricane is headed your way, it may be too late for supplies. It is important to have a disaster supply kit ready with non-perishable items and supplies, prior to hurricane season.

Monitor conditions ? the national weather service and the weather channel are excellent sources for on-line information; in addition, a battery powered radio or satellite device is recommended to track conditions through the NOAA weather radio.

Some basic hurricane readiness items around your home will help keep you (if you are not evacuated) and/or your home in the best possible position to survive the storm. There are several major potential threats to your home including, wind, flooding and even basic home security. Reroof America recommends the following:

For Protection Against High Winds – First and foremost all doors and windows should be covered. If storm shutters are not installed, marine grade plywood is the next best solution. Have a professional install straps or otherwise set up a system to secure the remainder of the buildings exterior including the roof, garage doors, siding, and roof frame, especially on gable roofs that may be more susceptible to high wind damage. If you have rain gutters installed on you home, assure that they are clear of debris and assure that all fasteners are tightly attached to your home. Finally, remember that anything around the outside of your home including large trees and other items will become projectiles with the high winds and should be removed if at all possible.

High Winds and Your Roof – Many roofing manufacturers have wind warranties that go up to as high as 130 MPH. However, it is critical that you understand that when a hurricane hits your area, your wind warranty most likely becomes void. Hurricanes are considered ?Acts of God? and will void your protection. So, while having a highly rated wind roofing system installed on your home means that your roof is more likely to withstand the hurricane; it does not necessarily mean that your roof is warranted against parts or all of it blowing off during a hurricane. You should read the fine print on your warranty paperwork to verify your coverage. In addition, most contractors? workmanship warranties will be voided with hurricane force winds.

The type of roof you have will factor in to the amount of damage to which you are susceptible. As mentioned, gabled roofs are more susceptible to damage from a hurricane. A gable roof looks like an ?A? on the ends with the outside wall going to the top of the roof. The edge of the roof line is called the rake edge and can be the most vulnerable area. Other issues with gable roofs can be the potential uplift to the roof sheathing and subsequent damage to the roof trusses, which hold the roof together. Preventing blow-offs on gable roofs will be discussed later in this article.

Home Flood Protection – If you home is in a low lying area and you happen to be in a storm surge area, you may not be able to prevent water from entering your home. Reroof America recommends that all electrical and otherwise combustible items be raised off of the floor to help prevent damage. Additional preventative items that can be installed in many homes include sewer backflow valves.

When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information to the public through all sorts of media. During a hurricane situation that can be monitored, you might have a day or two to get ready. Some helpful tips for evacuation:
