On Sunday, within 12 hours of the quake, Eqecat said that insured losses could range from $500 million to $1 billion, but noted, "There is a fair amount of uncertainty associated with this given the unknown extent of (business-interruption insurance) and contents losses, which are still being fully understood."
"The Engineered Wood Association did a report after Hurricane Andrew hit Florida and found that when the manufactured home was properly installed, it withstood the hurricane force winds better than most stick-built homes" Campbell says
A thought for the day: It was Hartford (Conn.) Courant Editor Charles Dudley Warner -- and not his friend and colleague Mark Twain -- who said, "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it."
"Traffic signals that were damaged at minor intersections or at locations off of the thoroughfare network would not significantly hinder restoration of regional traffic" said Broward Traffic Engineering Director Scott Brunner
