Storm Hits the Park. Our House is Damaged. No Other House Sustained Significant Damage According to Ron.

A storm broke out between midnight and first light on Sunday April 22, 2012.  Ron Covington called to say that my house (16611 Camelia Drive) had been damaged.  Evidently there were bursts of high winds, and one of those destroyed my car port. The front end was blown apart, while the rear end collapsed on Bob and Joanie Steinke’s car which was napping in our driveway.  The roof was damaged as was some of the trim.  Fortunately, no water entered the interior.

Ron and Joanie sent us photos, and within hours we had a team of professionals assessing the damage, tarping the roof and removing debris.   Luckily, no other property was significantly damaged.

I will keep you all informed as the situation unfolds further.     Paul and Eileen

Here’s Al Jolson to cheer us up:

  1. Paul, unreal. Bud and Carita had 3 shutters pretty much shot in this storm also. The TV said this afternoon that maybe it was a small tornado that came hit Ft Myers. There was other damage in other parts of the city. We saw the crew working on your home this afternoon. We can all be glad no one was hurt.

  2. The people that did the clean up were very nice and did a great job. Sorry for all the damage but these things happen without warning. Good reason for people to not leave anything out in their yards when they go north for the summer. Anything loose is a projectile and no one knows when or where it might land if the wind picks it up.
