I love living so close to the ocean, but it’s also a source of fear. We get a lot of close calls with hurricanes, and I wonder all the time when a bad enough storm is going to hit our area directly. I pray whenever there’s an inbound storm headed our way on the doppler radar. What else can you do other than prepare yourself and your home? You can fill a closet full with supplies in the event of a bad storm, but there’s no getting around the existential fear that inundates your mind in the process. Plus the last few storms that came through this area had some lasting impacts. Money had to be allocated to bring in sand to fix the beaches that were destroyed from storm surge erosion. I have seen beach erosion over the years since my childhood, but this is by far the worst case of it I have seen in my life. On top of the beach erosion, the storm surge made its way into the inlets and bays, causing stress to sea walls that protect communities and homes in the area. These sea walls are reinforced with rebar tie wire so that they’re more structurally sound and last much longer than the concrete would without steel rebar tie wire to use as structural reinforcement. Luckily the sea walls in my community were built with corrosion resistant rebar tie wire. When I asked, I was told that they used galvanized rebar tie wire which comes with a zinc coating. The zinc coating is what prevents corrosion and rust from affecting the steel rod and bar wire.
