Have you ever been in a hurricane?

Major or minor?
I was in Category 5 hurricane. It made landfall about thirty miles from my house. The brunt of the storm lasted about one hundred minutes. We were without water for five days and without power for three weeks.

No,most hurricanes are just bad storms by the time they make it up here

[@1056803,Iwashere2] I grew up in the midwest, so I have an inkling.

I've been in several hurricanes, three major, but never a cat 5. They are a part of life on the Texas Gulf Coast.

[@11378,exexec] Yes. Life on the Gulf Coast is never dull.
Hurricane George in Mobile in 1998. I think it was a cat 2. It wasn’t bad just lots of rain, minor flooding and some intermittent power outages. I feel like it wasn’t really much worse than some of the severe thunderstorms we get each year in the southeast.

[@1162,ProdigalSummer] Because of hurricanes?
[@673904,ProfessorPlum77] nah, those never bothered me. It was relocation for a job.

[@673904,ProfessorPlum77] For myself I wasn't worried, but for My 18 month old son which I just took sole custody of just a couple months before I was.
