RE: RE: Yet another hurricane story

No doubt your exactly right, Pam.  We've had high water in different places
where we've lived, but it seems that nearly every house has been on or very
near a hill top, so we hadn't seen that sort of occurrence from our own
experience in Indy or Ohio.

Still, that's a LOT of POWER!  Whether wind-borne or water-borne to blow or
float enough debris into all those little opening  with sufficient force to
topple it is pretty amazing!

With the flooding from the storm, it could have picked up enough leaves,
branches and assorted trash to fill in most of those spaces to cause it
to topple over. Once down, the flotsam & jetsam would wash away and
you'd never know. I've seen how the leaves and such pile up at my chain
link gate during a deluge.
