Why Residents should Raise their Homes
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) states that: Along the Gulf Coast, a storm surge is the greatest threat to life and property. In addition to the frequency of which New Orleans is in the path of hurricanes, there are also other factors that intensify the problems of these catastrophic events. Hurricanes such as Katrina, Ike, and Gustav have shown the vulnerability of the city of New Orleans.
To relieve some of these threats, House Raising in New Orleans has begun. Robert Wolf Construction is leading the way.
As most residents know, the city of New Orleans is shaped like a bowl. When a hurricane produces a storm surge, water may flood and stay in the bowl until the pumps remove the excess water. The severe flooding during Hurricane Katrina even swept away houses. If a home wasn’t swept away, it was surely damaged and, often times, beyond repair.
The City of New Orleans and the surrounding areas felt the intense pressure to provide a solution for local homeowners. House Raising, along with the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) that coincides, are just the solutions.
