Hurricane Sandy - Waterfront RI Real Estate Scene - Day 1 UPDATE

Hurricane Sandy - Waterfront RI Real Estate Scene - Day 1

 

 We are in a state of emergency as are the other coastal states in New England here in RI real estate land.  The storm surge is what we coastal Rhode Islanders fear the most.  With the moon at fullness the high tides will be stronger with Hurricane Sandy and more damaging to our coastal RI real estate.  

Narragansett RI Pier & Beach - RI real estate

12:30 pm Update- Just returned from Narragansett Pier, Narragansett with the tremendous winds & coastal flooding happening now.  I have just had a home closing confirmed for 2 pm ...not only do we postpone it but we deliver to buyers in the middle of a HURRICANE!!

 

waterfront RI real estate

Yesterday, Sunday - winds up to 45 miles per hour yesterday.  I am one house in on Narragansett Bay and feel the fierceness of the wind on my trees and windows. We have areas of Westerly, South Kingstown, Narragansett town calling for mandatory evacuation if you are by the water which many homes are.  

Hurricane strength windows can cost a RI homeowner upwards of $7000 for a picture window so few RI homeowners on waterfront RI real estate have them.  Most homeowners have plywood or storm shutters on their windows which are acceptable to most insurance company's to meet their hurricane insurance requirements.

I live on the water and love it.  I am in a flood zone X 500 (but this zone does Not require flood insurance) which should not flood with Hurricane Sandy (about 12 feet above flood stage).  No, no flood insurance because my homeowners does not require it so as the gusts reach 75 mph we are bracing here for a long night...who can sleep!  We are expecting a huge tidal storm surge in Narragansett Bay this evening and I'm hoping my property survives.

Day 1 - Narragansett bound for a lengthy appointment and truckin north on Rte. 95 to a closing, hopefully, at 12:30 (this may be postponed).  

 

Hoping that my southern neighbors fare well and that all stay safe especially in New Jersey.  As neighbors in my area band together, I am so fortunate to live in this North Kingstown community I am in.  What amazes me is that no sun at this hour at all it is still total darkness across the Bay.  The bottom picture is from yesterday afternoon.

 I will return to update this post and progress on the RI shoreline storm impact by noon briefly prior to a waterfront RI real estate closing, if possible...a story behind this one more later!  Hurricane Sandy - Waterfront RI Real Estate Scene - Day 1.
